Are you looking older than your actual age due to the signs of aging or sun damage? A growing number of people are turning toward the medical-grade chemical peel to help minimize skin problems like these. One of the most attractive features of this type of treatment is its ability to significantly enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for surgery and the downtime, expense, and complications that sometimes accompany it.
What is a Medical-Grade Chemical Peel?
As we grow older, dead skin cells can begin to build up more rapidly on the surface of our skin. These dead skin cells and cellular debris do not slough off as quickly as they once did. This leads to a dull skin tone that makes you look less than lustrous. A medical-grade chemical peel is a non-surgical remedy that can help to enhance the appearance of skin affected by sun damage, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. It helps to restore the evenness of texture and color in your skin, leading to a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Each peel consists of some type of chemical mixed within a solution that is applied to your skin for a specified amount of time. This encourages your body to slough off dead skin cells and other material that can block the natural radiance of your skin.
Should I Consider a Chemical Peel?
You might want to consider undergoing a chemical peel treatment if you are dealing with lines and wrinkles or skin that has been damaged by sun exposure. Other good candidates are those with brown spots, blotches, or other types of skin discolorations that are unresponsive to other types of treatments. You may wish to consider this route if you have precancerous skin growths or scars caused by injury, surgery, or acne. The best candidates for chemical peel procedures are those who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations in regards to their outcomes.
How is a Chemical Peel Performed?
We apply the chemical solution for your peel. You may experience a slight stinging or tingling sensation at this time. We determine the length of time to leave the solution on your skin by monitoring changes in your skin’s appearance. At the appropriate time, we neutralize the solution to end the treatment.
