Wrinkles, fine lines, skin discoloration, scars, and acne are common skin concerns that affect millions of people. Over-the-counter skincare products are often ineffective at treating these concerns; however, chemical peels provide patients with effective and visible results. This type of skin resurfacing treatment works by using chemical solutions to remove the top layers of the skin, resulting in a smoother, younger-looking complexion. Patients can receive the following benefits from chemical peels in:
- Improved skin tone
- Smoother skin
- Wrinkle reduction
- Visible results
Chemical peels can be done at light, medium, or deep depths to achieve desired results. Depending on the chemical peel, your specialist will use a different chemical solution. During your treatment, your specialist will apply a chemical agent typically containing salicylic acid or glycolic acid to your skin. This will cause the skin to peel over the next few days to reveal a smoother and more even complexion.
What should I do after treatment?
You should avoid sun exposure after treatment. The amount of time you should avoid the sun will depend on the depth of the chemical peel.
How long will it take to see results?
It depends on the depth of the chemical peel. Medium and deep chemical peels usually provide instant results. If you have a light chemical peel, the results will be more subtle and may increase with a few more treatments.
