What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
Some of the benefits of a chemical peel include evening out skin tone. Sun exposure, aging, and acne may leave the skin scarred, spotted, and/or wrinkled. The chemical solution will smooth skin texture by removing the damaged outer layers. In addition, the peel is a noninvasive way to correct skin imperfections.
What are the different types of chemical peels?
There are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. With the superficial peel, the esthetician uses alpha-hydroxy acid to penetrate the outer skin layers to gently exfoliate the skin and improve discoloration. With the medium peel, trichloroacetic acid or glycolic acid is used to remove damaged skin cells. This is a treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. With the deep peel, trichloroacetic acid or phenol is used to penetrate down to the middle skin layer. A deep peel eliminates damaged skin cells, age spots, moderate lines, shallow scars, and freckles.
How do I prepare for the chemical peel?
If you are scheduled for a chemical peel, there is no preparation necessary. You will first go see the skincare specialist in our Tempe Med Spa for a consultation. The doctor will schedule you for a procedure, based on information obtained during the consultation.
What can I expect during the chemical peel procedure?
You should arrive for your appointment wearing no makeup. The esthetician will cleanse the skin first, then, allow it to dry. The chemical solution is applied using a cotton-tipped applicator. Several layers of the solution are applied during the procedure. You cannot wash your face or get it wet for several days.
What can I expect during the recovery period?
After the chemical peel, your face will feel sensitive and tight. Superficial peels take only 1-3 days to show results, whereas medium peels could take 1-2 weeks to fully heal. Deep peels offer the best results, taking a long time to heal.
How much does a chemical peel cost?
The cost of the chemical peel depends on the type of peel used and your individual issues. The skincare specialist will discuss cost during the consultation. Expect to pay between $30 and $75 for your office visit.
Who is a candidate for a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is used to treat wrinkles, sun-damage, mild acne scars, crow’s feet, and sagging skin. Results vary, depending on the severity of the skin problems. Patients with light skin and hair are the best candidates for mild and medium chemical peels. However, patients with any hair color can benefit from these treatments. The client must be in good physical health, have realistic expectations of the outcome, and understand the procedure.
Who is a candidate for a deep chemical peel?
Deep chemical peels involve a longer recover time, which can be 1-2 months for some cases. Clients who wish to correct blotches related to age or sun exposure, those with coarse wrinkles, and people with pre-cancerous growths will benefit from a deep peel. Dark-skinned people or those with heart problems should not have deep chemical peels.
