Chemical peels can help you reverse the damaging effects that sun exposure, aging, and stress can have on your skin, revealing renewed, healthier-looking skin and a more uniform complexion.
These popular skin-resurfacing treatments use chemical substances to accelerate skin exfoliation, renewing your complexion and leaving you with vibrant, radiant-looking skin. Chemical peels can address visible skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles as well as uneven skin tone and texture.
During this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. At New You Medical Health and Surgery Center, these treatments are performed in levels of intensity that range from light to medium depth, depending on the patient’s skin condition and treatment goals.
People have reported the following benefits:
- Improvement of overall skin condition
- Improved skin clarity
- More evenness in skin color
- Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoother skin texture
What to Expect
A chemical peel appointment takes about 45 minutes, about 20 minutes of which is the actual application procedure.
You may feel a tingling or burning sensation during the procedure, but this usually subsides within a few minutes.
After any type of chemical peel, you should expect to experience mild redness, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days, depending on the depth of the peel. Sun exposure should be limited for at least one week after the peel. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results.
