The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world. At our Los Angeles Skin Care, chemical peels effectively and gently exfoliate dead, dull skin cells to reveal the fresh skin that looks smoother and renewed. Chemical Peel can improve the tone and color of the skin, as well as diminish acne scars and smooth out the complexion. Chemical Peel is applied right before a thorough extraction. When the treatment is done, the glow you observe is beyond belief. A mild chemical peel on a monthly basis is extremely beneficial to the health of your skin.
A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its dead cells. It is helpful for those people with facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. At Los Angeles Skin Care the precise formula used may be adjusted to meet each individual’s needs. This description provides basic information about certain types of chemical peel treatments and the results you might expect. It won’t answer all your questions since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. Once you and your esthetician have decided on a specific peel program, be sure to ask about any details that you do not understand.
Chemical Peel softens acne scars and even control acne. At our Los Angeles-Skin Care Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin for people who can’t spare the time to recover from a stronger peel. AHA peels may be used to treat fine lines, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation, and acne. Various concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best result. Your esthetician will make this decision during your consultation and as the treatment proceeds.
All chemical peels carry some uncertainty and risk. A chemical peel is normally a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified, experienced professional.
AHA peels may cause stinging, redness, irritation and crusting. However, as the skin adjusts to the treatment regimen, these problems will subside.
After Chemical Peel
Improvements from AHA peels may be very subtle at first. You may detect a healthier glow to your skin. With continued treatments, you will notice a general improvement in the texture of your skin.
If you’re planning a series of peel, you can expect a dramatic improvement in the surface of your skin – fewer fine lines, fewer blemishes, and more even-toned skin. Your results will be long-lasting, although not immune to the effects of aging and sun exposure. It is recommended not to expose your skin to the sun during your chemical peel treatment series.
A protective crust may be allowed to form over the new skin. When it’s removed, the skin underneath will be bright pink.
After healing, the skin is lighter in color, tighter, smoother, and younger looking.
