A chemical peel might sound like a daunting procedure, but this particular skin-resurfacing technique actually provides incredible and long-lasting results.

So What Exactly is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels involve the application of a safe chemical solution designed to strip away the topmost layer of skin in order to diminish or remove aesthetic imperfections such as mild wrinkles, scars, sunspots, irregular skin pigmentation, and more. Texture and tone are also enhanced, not to mention an improvement in brightness and tightness of the skin.

Why Do a Chemical Peel?

Skin isn't immune to aging, scars, stress, and sun damage. As we age, fine wrinkles begin to form, pores enlarge, and skin loses elasticity. Too much sun exposure induces wrinkles and age spots as well, and as for people with other skin-related issues, such as acne scarring, unwanted freckles, or rough, leathery skin, chemical peels just might be a smart and viable solution.

What Happens During a Chemical Peel?

Considering there are several different types of chemical peels, it's important to consult with a professional clinic such as Elysium SurgiSpa, as to what chemical peel is best suited for your skin. Afterwards, the skin is cleaned and prepared for the peel solution, and the solution applied with soft cotton or gauze. The peel is then rinsed from the applied areas and your clinician provides specific aftercare instructions, which should be followed in order to protect your newly treated skin. Always be sure to discuss with your clinician any questions or concerns you may have prior to and after your chemical peel procedure.

What Can You Expect After a Chemical Peel?

Once the skin has healed from the chemical peel, you'll notice healthier, more vibrant skin. Scarring may be lightened, wrinkles diminished, and other blemishes and imperfections improved. Patients may notice softer, plusher skin and a more youthful, balanced tone and radiance. Results may vary depending on the type of chemical peel applied, so it's always important to discuss with a clinician as to what specific results you're seeking to achieve.
