Ordinary skin care tactics like daily face washing and using skin creams cannot undo years of damage to your skin. You may have to rely on more in-depth measures to restore your skin’s youthful and healthy appearance. Discover the benefits of chemical peels at our office in Folsom and find out if you are a good candidate for this cosmetic procedure.
What is a Chemical Peel?
This is a skin care method that improves the appearance and health of your skin. It involves applying a special solution to your skin. The solution then exfoliates and causes your skin to peel. The new skin that grows back is healthier and younger-looking. It is also smoother and less wrinkled.
Chemical peels at our office in Folsom come in three basic varieties. The first type of chemical peel, called a superficial or lunchtime peel, involves the use of alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid to penetrate the outer layer of your skin. A superficial peel can be used to improve the appearance of rough skin and even out mild skin discoloration.
The second kind of peel is called a medium peel. It typically involves the use of glycolic or trichloroacetic acid to penetrate the middle layer of your skin. It is used to remove damaged skin cells, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The third type, called a deep chemical peel, also uses trichloroacetic acid to deeply penetrate the middle layer of your skin. This method is used to remove moderate lines, age spots, wrinkles, freckles, and shallow scars. You should see a dramatic and immediate improvement in your skin after this treatment.
Who Can Use Chemical Peels?
We are very specific about who can and cannot safely undergo a chemical peel. As such, before you undergo a chemical peel, you will be thoroughly examined by our medical professional to ensure that you can go through the treatment safely.
