- Light peels to remove superficial wrinkles
- Medium peels
- Deep peels for more severe conditions
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas.
The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient’s skin and the depth of the peel. Generally the deeper the peel the greater the results. Significant improvement of damaged skin can been achieved.
A skin rejuvenation program is often used in conjunction with either chemical peels to reduce the fine wrinkles of the face, lighten areas of hyper pigmentation and produce a softer texture to the skin. The program can be accomplished separately or in conjunction with the other procedures listed here and is followed at home by the patient after a consultation and a treatment plan is established for the patient’s cosmetic needs.
What can be expected?
The initial redness fades in a few days to weeks (depending on the depth of the peel) to a light pink, which can be concealed with makeup. The amount of flacking also depends on the depth of the peel. In general the deeper the peel the more flacking should be expected.
