What Is A Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a clinical procedure aimed at enhancing skin texture and promoting smoothness. By removing the outermost layers of the skin, chemical peels are commonly administered on the hands, face, neck, chest, and back. They are highly regarded for their ability to effectively refine the skin's surface. Patients appreciate chemical peels for imparting a healthy radiance, deeply cleansing pores, and naturally exfoliating dead skin cells to reveal a refreshed glow.

Chemical Peel, Is it safe?

When administered by skilled medical professionals, chemical peels are exceptionally safe. They represent one of the most efficacious methods for revitalizing and rejuvenating skin health. Furthermore, they stand out as among the finest treatments for sustaining skin wellness. In essence, chemical peels restore a youthful, radiant complexion by renewing the skin's outer layer. Moreover, they can effectively clear pores, eliminate dead skin cells, and promote the emergence of healthy skin cells.

What is the mechanism behind a chemical peel?

Many individuals have concerns about chemical peels due to the perception of them being a rigorous skin treatment. In reality, chemical peels enhance the natural skin renewal process. As skin ages, its ability to regenerate diminishes. Peels delicately eliminate the outer layer of damaged skin, facilitating the emergence of fresh, healthy skin. This rejuvenating process stimulates collagen production and enhances the effectiveness of existing skincare regimens. Moreover, chemical peels can effectively target various skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and even rosacea.

Is a chemical peel suitable for me?

The ideal candidate is generally in good health, a non-smoker, and seeks treatment for minor skin concerns while aiming to rejuvenate facial skin.

Chemical peels are contraindicated for pregnant or nursing women. Additionally, individuals who have taken Accutane within the past six months, are prone to cold sores, are using specific antibiotics, undergoing cancer treatments, or have autoimmune conditions should avoid chemical peels.

For patients with darker skin tones, there is a risk of hyperpigmentation with strong chemical peels, so precautions should be taken by your provider. The experienced medical team at Luxe Nova Medical  Aesthetics & Wellness will assess your candidacy during your consultation to ensure the best possible outcome.

What are the benefits of getting a chemical peel?

Chemical peels offer numerous advantages:

  • They enhance skin texture and accelerate skin cell turnover.

  • Regular treatments can boost collagen production, diminishing fine lines.  

    • Additionally, chemical peels are effective in reducing hyperpigmentation and clearing acne by unclogging pores.

  • They leave the skin smoother, promote a more uniform tone, and can even improve minor scarring.

Where are chemical peels typically applied?

Chemical peels are primarily administered on the face, neck, and hands. They are effective in reducing fine lines around the eyes and mouth. Certain types of peels can also address mild acne, scars, sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, and uneven skin pigmentation. They are beneficial for treating rough skin, scaly patches, and dull complexion as well.

During your consultation, we will determine the appropriate peel depth based on your skin condition and treatment goals. We may also discuss supplementary therapies that could enhance your results.

FAQs

What should I expect during my service?

During your initial consultation, we will discuss any necessary preparation steps prior to your peel. Upon arrival, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed by our staff to optimize the penetration of the peel into your skin layers.

A customized peel will then be carefully applied by a professional. It is normal to feel warmth in the treatment area during application, and some patients may experience mild discomfort as the peel begins its work. Itching, tingling, or a slight burning sensation is typical and will cease once the peel is neutralized. Throughout your treatment, our focus remains on ensuring your comfort and achieving optimal results.

What Is The Recovery Like, and Are There Any Side Effects?

The primary concern during recovery from a chemical peel is sensitivity to sunlight. It is crucial to apply sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure. After the peel, you may experience tightness and dryness of the skin, as well as mild redness for a few hours. The shedding of dead skin cells typically begins around 3-5 days post-peel, although this timing can vary based on the peel's depth. Not observing immediate skin flaking is normal and should not cause concern. Some patients may also experience mild itching. However, overall recovery is usually mild, and the benefits outweigh any temporary discomfort.

How Many Treatments Should I Get?

The talented medical staff at Luxe Nova will assist you in creating an ideal treatment plan for optimal results. Depending on your specific needs, treatment options may vary. For instance, some patients opt for a chemical peel every four to six weeks for maintenance, while those managing conditions like acne may require more frequent sessions. Patients seeking significant skin rejuvenation may choose to undergo a series of customized peels to achieve their desired outcomes. Others may prefer combining a chemical peel with complementary treatments such as microdermabrasion. The best approach is to schedule a consultation where we can discuss your goals and customize a treatment plan tailored to maximize your results.
