A chemical peel is a technique used to improve skin texture, smooth fine lines and treat scarring.
It is an effective anti aging treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
A chemical solution is applied to the skin which causes exfoliation and in the end cellular regeneration.
Chemical Peels Explained
The service takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and for most of our clients is typically pain-free. Some say they feel minor itching which only lasts a few minutes, until the product is neutralized.
After 2-3 days you may experience light to moderate exfoliation (fluffing) typically around the nose and mouth. This only lasts a few days and it is important to stay hydrated.
Some see immediate results and feel an instant glow while others go through a few days of “fluffing” before their new, radiant skin shows through.
This treatment can be repeated in 30 day cycles. Generally 4-6 peels would be suitable for someone with acne, moderate acne scaring or hyper pigmentation.
A chemical peel uses acid to remove layers of damaged or aged skin, revealing newer, softer, younger-looking skin. The acids used range from very mild to very strong. Mild alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) can be used to remove a very minimal layer of skin, thus rejuvenating dull-looking skin. Stronger acids like trichloracetic acid (TCA) or phenol can be used for deep peels to correct acne scarring, serious pigmentation problems or fine wrinkles.
A chemical peel can be performed at any age when there is enough damaged skin to be removed.
Before the peel, your skin will be cleansed and toned to remove natural surface oils. The chosen chemical will be applied gently to your skin in one or more layers. After a specified length of time, the skin care specialist will neutralize the acid and remove it from your skin, which is then wiped clean and treated with a moisturizer or antibacterial ointment.
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the immediate removal of peach fuzz is an added benefit which renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skin care products are better able to penetrate the skin following a dermaplaning service which allows them to work more efficiently. Your cosmetics will also go on smoother. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
How should I care for my skin after a dermaplaning service?
Your face will be red, scabby and peeling for up to two weeks after your treatment; for this reason a burn dressing may be used to bandage the treated skin. After a light peel your skin may feel tight like it does after a sunburn. After a deep peel, expect several days of discomfort and tenderness as your skin becomes crusted and weeps clear fluid. It may be a few weeks until you see pink, new skin, which must be protected from the sun like a baby’s skin. Your doctor will give you explicit instructions which should be followed to the letter.
You will, of course, continue to age following your chemical peel. However, you will be starting with virtually new skin, so you have set the process back somewhat. Taking great care of your skin going forward will also maximize the benefits of your chemical peel.
