Chemical skin peels are popular cosmetic treatments used to rejuvenate the skin by sloughing off dead skin cells. They may also be used to reduce the appearance of imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and dark spots. When performed by a licensed medical spa, chemical skin peels are safe and non-invasive.
Chemical skin peels are considered a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, and they are performed in a doctor’s office.
Chemical peels work by exfoliating the skin, which can help improve signs of aging on the face. It peels, removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores. This can improve skin discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles. It can also even skin tone and make the skin appear smoother.
During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the surface of the skin. The solution will peel away damaged skin, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin underneath. The skin will begin to peel within 1-3 days, revealing new, healthy skin. It indeed reveals a fresh new layer of skin.
Chemical peels are safe for most patients. Deep chemical peels, such as those offered by the best medical spa in SW Washington, typically require a topical anesthetic or sedative for patient comfort. The treatment may also cause the skin to peel for a few days to a week after the treatment.
Far from being painful, a chemical peel is actually a pleasant experience. The chemical solution may be mildly irritating, but most patients describe the sensation as a “prickly” feeling. Most patients choose to take an over-the-counter pain reliever following the procedure.
Chemical peels will not stop the clock, but they can slow it down by several years. Typically, patients start noticing an improvement in the appearance of their skin after just one treatment.
