Let’s face it – not everyone is lucky enough to be born with smooth, even skin. Fewer still are able to maintain that perfect complexion as they grow older.
Over time, rough, aged-looking skin can result from sun exposure, acne, scarring or wrinkles. Uneven pigmentation, such as freckles or birthmarks, or hormonal influences, like the use of birth control, can make the skin appear blotchy.
Fortunately, there is a treatment available that can return your skin to a smooth, healthy, rejuvenated look. It’s safe, it produces real, lasting results, and it does not require surgery or hospitalization.
It’s called chemical skin peel treatment, and it is available today through your skin care professional.
What it’s all about:
A chemical peel involves placing a solution on the skin that causes the outer layers of the skin to exfoliate. New skin is regenerated, which is smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in color than the old skin.
Typically, three types of chemical peels are available; superficial peels, medium depth peels and deep chemical peels. Which one is right for you depends on your goals and the disorder you are trying to treat. During our consultation we can help you select the peel that is best suited to your needs.
The agents most commonly used for this procedure are alpha and beta hydroxy acids. These solutions are very effective and have a great deal of strength. Therefore, it is important to have these treatments administered by a dermatologist or a Certified Skin Care Specialist.
Your chemical skin peel treatment:
Chemical skin peel treatments have a long tradition of success. Skin care professionals have used them for more than 50 years.
And today’s skin care specialists have the advantage of modern skin care knowledge to tailor the treatment to patients’ individual needs.
Superficial peels and medium depth peels require only a quick visit to the physician’s office and can be completed in just a few minutes, or even on a lunch break.
Deep peels, depending on the extent of the peel, may take up to an hour.
Chemical peels are most commonly used on areas of the face, but it may be applied to the neck, chest, back, legs or arms as well.
Skin treated with a chemical peel should be protected from sun exposure and covered with a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher, especially during the time of new skin regrowth. This time period begins about 7 to 10 days after treatment.
What to expect:
After about a week, the new skin will begin to appear. Your complexion will be noticeably improved. Lines will be smoothed, rough patches will be softened, and blemishes and other marks will be cleared.
You will feel more confident, as friends, family and co-workers remark on your fresh, younger-looking appearance.
You can further your results by combining your chemical with Botox, collagen injections, laser treatments and other cosmetic procedures.
