Peeling is usually a bad side-effect from too much sun exposure, but a chemical peel is a great way to remove sun damaged skin to reveal brand new soft skin underneath. Combine this with our DermaPlaning procedure and you’ll have baby smooth skin in no time.
Chemical peels are for any patient who wants to even pigmentation, soften and smoothen their skin.
Treat yourself to the rejuvenating feel of a chemical peel at DermMedica. Our gentle treatment of chemical cleansers lifts damaged and problem layers of skin to expose the youthful layers of skin underneath. Our full, refreshing chemical peel treatments take less than an hour, and the effects will last for months.
Chemical peel solutions can vary widely in their intensity, depending on the condition being treated and the desired result. The more concentrated the chemical, the more layers of damaged skin that are removed. Each chemical works by exfoliating and drying out the problem layers of skin so the body will naturally shed the unwanted areas (acne, brown spots, melasma, sun damaged skin, mild wrinkles or other skin problems), exposing healthy, younger skin underneath.
The average chemical peel appointment at DermMedica is 30 minutes. Patients arrive at the office, the face or targeted skin is cleaned and then chemicals are applied to the treatment area. After the treatment, all chemicals are rinsed and patients are given post care instructions to follow to aid recovery.
3-7 days – Patients receiving a chemical peel treatment can expect to see peeling or flaking skin from the treated area during recovery. There may be minor irritation, but patients are fully capable of returning to their regular activities immediately. It is important that patients abstain from sun exposure during the recovery period, keeping the skin properly protected and moisturized.
In a week, your skin peeling is complete and new skin is exposed, giving a youthful appearance to the treated area. Peels can work for many different skin conditions including, but not limited to, acne, abnormal pigmentation, very mild scars or to just refresh and rejuvenate the skin from age or sun exposure.
