Chemical peels are an excellent way to revitalize your skin. Many people do not realize how the timing of your chemical peel can contribute to your ultimate results. At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we feel patient education is essential. We are as invested as you in wanting to see the best results from any procedure we give.
What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are a chemical exfoliation technique that can correct many imperfections of the skin. The treatments come in a range of options and three basic penetration levels:
Deeper peels are ideal for the skin on your face. Superficial peels can often be used on various parts of the body. One of our professionals can clearly describe the options available and their benefits.
What Do They Correct?
The intensity of the treatment dictates what issues are addressed and the level of the results. Overall, peels are useful in correcting issues of:
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Uneven tone
- Skin clarity
Peels can also enhance the overall texture of your skin.
What Happens During the Treatment?
When you come in for treatment, your skin will be coated with a special solution. The solution is designed to remove the layer of skin it is applied to, promoting new skin growth. The amount of time and strength of the solution is dependant on the type of peel you receive. For example, stronger peels can take longer and require more downtime.
The Best Time for Treatment
Our team is committed to helping our patients reach their aesthetic goals any time of the year. However, there are times that are more optimal than others to receive certain treatments. When scheduling a chemical peel, the goal should be to consider your other daily activities. For example, it’s not advisable to get a peel before heading to the beach for the day.
For maximum results, many patients opt for a series of chemical peels. The peels are generally spaced about a month or so apart. However, it all depends on the unique case.
