Chemical peels have long been a popular choice for patients looking to improve the tone and texture of their skin and embrace a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. Not only can chemical peels be applied to the face, but they are also effective on the neck, chest, hands, arms and even legs.
There are many different types of chemical peels available, and here at Weston Med Spa & Cosmetic Surgery, we are pleased to bring our patients the very top aesthetic treatments, including chemical peels by Skinceuticals. These are performed by our expert team here in the comfort of our Weston, FL offices.
Chemical peels are designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by removing the outer layers. Once the peel is applied, the substances within it react to the upper layer of the skin to dissolve the bonds that bind surface cells to the skin. This reveals the underlying skin, which is healthier, smoother and more attractive. Skinceuticals chemical peels are carried out using revolutionary Skinceuticals products.
There are different depths of chemical peel and which is right for you will depend on your individual circumstances. The lightest peels remove only the very outermost layer of skin and produce a faint tingling sensation on the skin, but deeper peels that penetrate much further can feel quite intense and, in this scenario, you may be given a numbing cream beforehand to ensure you remain comfortable.
The deeper the peel you have, the more significant the effects will be both in terms of your recovery and results. Even a superficial peel will cause your skin to appear red and swollen for up to 5 days, which many people liken to feeling and looking like sunburn. In the case of a deep peel, you may notice blistering and skin peeling for up to 14 days. You will be given specific aftercare advice to follow to ensure that you minimize your risk of developing complications and obtain the best possible result from your procedure.
When and how often you should get a chemical peel will depend on the condition of your skin and the type of peel you are having. There is no reason why the lightest peels can’t be carried out monthly and form part of your usual skincare regime. Meanwhile, deep peels may only be recommended annually. Our team will be happy to advise you on what would be best for you based on your individual circumstances.
