The Basics of Chemical Peels
Now more than ever, men and women alike are enjoying the benefits of making chemical peels and Facials the new staples of their skincare routines. Chemical peels are effective treatments to reduce fine lines, fade away mild scars and certain types of acne; correct skin discoloration and imperfections; and refresh skin texture and color in areas such as your face.
During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied, which causes the top layers of skin to shed painlessly. A Consultation is Best to determine which treatment would best suit you. We will tailor a regimen that will help achieve your concern. Treatments are adjusted based off personal, and environmental lifestyle. *No Extractions during Treatment*
Types of Peeling agents we offer:
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
Depending on the depth of the peel (superficial, medium or deep), the newly-revealed skin appears smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in tone.
During a chemical peel, most patients feel warmth or heat that may last about five to 10 minutes. You also may require more than one treatment to achieve desired results.
Depending on the type of peel, there may be a mild to severe sunburn-like reaction. The gentlest type of peel, a superficial “lunchtime” peel, most often causes some redness. Some patients experience scaling of the skin that can last three to five days.
Medium-depth and deep peels may cause swelling and blisters. These blisters may break, crust and turn brown, and then cause the skin to peel off. Deeper peels take seven to 14 days or longer to heal completely.
All Peels at Glam and Glow BBS are tested and approved for all skin types. But if you’re pregnant, recently had another procedure, suffer from a skin condition, taking medications, people with a history of fever blisters (cold sores) or keloids (raised scars) are at higher risk for complications after a chemical peel.
After treatment, esthetician advise the daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen to help lessen the formation of new spots and lines. To learn about Chemical Aftercare Click here
