The aging process can cause your skin to become lax, pigmented and rough. Other factors add to the assault such as sun and environmental exposures. You can refine, smooth and refresh your skin with a chemical peel. A chemical peel helps to resurface your skin and eliminate superficial imperfections. Your treatment will be tailored to your skin’s specific needs.
Your practitioner will help you develop a treatment plan that precisely matches your needs. During your 30 minute session, the provider will evenly apply a personalized peel over your cleansed skin. The procedure should provide minimal discomfort and little to no downtime.
Depending on your specific needs, the type of peel used will cause a certain level of exfoliation. Every patient’s skin responds uniquely to the chemical peels used. Those with milder skin concerns generally experience milder side effects. Peeling does happen for most patients and usually resolves within 4-5 days.
This will depend on what type of peel used. Some peels can be done on a bi-weekly basis. Other peels are advised every 6-8 weeks. Your provider will work with you to develop the optimal treatment plan to achieve your desired results. Our skin continues to age, so once your desired results are achieved, most patients desire touch up peels at least every 6-12 months to maintain those desired results.
