How Do Chemical Peels Work?

 
Chemical peeling is an office-based procedure performed to improve the appearance of the skin. By peeling the outer layer of the skin, fine wrinkles around the mouth and eyes can be diminished and pores can be minimized. Chemical peeling will provide you with the glow you have always wanted. Your skin will look healthier, supple and more vibrant.

 
How Should I Prepare for a Chemical Peel?

 
Nurse Tiffany creates an individualized plan for patients based on their needs. Nurse Tiffany may prescribe Retin A- a medication derived from Vitamin A that allows the chemical solution to penetrate more deeply and evenly. In addition, she may recommend a series of microdermabrasion sessions to remove the top, protective layer of the skin to allow for deeper penetration of solution. She may also choose to provide both mibradermabrasion and chemical peel services on the same day.

 
What to Expect on Treatment Day?

 
Nurse Tiffany will choose the peel that best fits your needs after having a detailed discussion. After cleansing and preparing your skin, she will apply the chemical solution for a few minutes. No "after-peel" ointment or covering is required.
 
Depending on the strength of the peel, periodic treatments may be necessary until the desired effects are achieved. For most patients, proper pre/post care with medical grade skin products will help maintain your desired outcome.

 
What Should I Expect After A Chemical Peel?

 
Chemical peel is normally a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified, experienced practitioner. Reports that some patients may experience are  stinging, redness, irritation and crusting after a chemical peel.
 
Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure for several days or weeks depending on strength of peel used. It is important to protect your newly formed skin layer and treating it like a baby’s skin and using sunscreen daily.
