A chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution to the face; this solution helps break up and remove the top layer of skin - typically dead and damaged cells - so that healthy skin cells can be exposed. This non-surgical treatment is an effective solution for relief of skin blemishes, discoloration, wrinkles, premature aging and other minor imperfections. As every patient has different needs, the acid solutions used in chemical peel treatment vary in strength. Typically, the chemical solution is comprised of one of the following acid bases:
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) - The lightest acid base, for patients who are seeking only minor rejuvenation, alpha hydroxys such as glycolic, lactic, and fruit acid provide smoother, more vibrant skin with minimal to zero downtime. Ideal for the treatment of minor wrinkling, acne, uneven pigmentation and dullness of skin, AHA treatment is quick and effective, and this type of acid can even be mixed in with at-home creams for daily usage.
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) - Effective for a wide ranging number of treatments, TCA is a common chemical peel agent, as it provides more substantive rejuvenating qualities than AHA while allowing for a quicker recovery than that of Phenol. Medium-depth wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation inconsistency, more substantial acne and other imperfections can all be treated with trichloroacetic acid.
Chemical peels provide patients with a means to revitalize their appearance without having to depend on surgical treatment. From temporary relief to long-term results, treatment can be tailored to meet your needs. If you would like to turn back the clock and regain the vibrancy and luster of your youth, a chemical peel may be for you.
Risks and Benefits
Smoother skin, improved complexion, uniform coloration, acne treatment, and the reduction of symptoms brought on by sun exposure and aging are among the benefits provided by chemical peels. Non-invasive and safe, the risks associated with chemical peels are minor, though with more substantial treatment - such as a phenol chemical peel - scarring, permanent freckle loss, pigmentation damage, and lines of demarcation are possible. We can counsel you on the risks and benefits of treatment during your initial consultation so that you can make an informed decision.
