What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel treatment is a nonsurgical technique to make your skin bright and can be used for the face and neck. To provide the highest quality results from chemical peel treatments, medspa810 gives you several treatment options. Your medical-grade facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will provide you with healthier, more radiant skin. At our Scottsdale, AZ office, our team performs chemical peel treatments that help to solve skin irregularities, like scars, wrinkles, fine lines, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels dissolve damaged, dead skin cells using a customized treatment on your skin that causes the visible layer to slough off. You may see a clearer, smoother complexion when your skin recovers and begins to repair and rejuvenate itself.
What to Expect from Chemical Peels
At our Scottsdale, AZ office, we perform chemical peels in various strengths to fit our patients' skin goals.
Light peels: This type of peel removes the outer layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a brighter appearance and smoother texture. Light chemical peels can be done once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: Medium peels penetrate deeper into your skin and require several days of recovery time. Patients may experience more discomfort during and up to an hour after the peel. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have significant damage to their skin, like deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three types of chemical peels is the deep chemical peel, and it will require the most recovery time. This more aggressive cosmetic treatment can leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for 2 – 3 weeks. Ideal candidates are patients with age or dark spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, or deep-seated scars. Since this type of peel is generally uncomfortable for most patients, we can provide you with mild anesthesia as a part of your treatment.
During your procedure at medspa810, we will ensure the skin is cleaned before applying the customized solution to the face and/or neck. After the solution sets for a predetermined amount of time, we will clean the peel off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients are encouraged to bring sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after the procedure to avoid sun exposure.
Depending on the type of chemical peel you have, you can expect your skin to itch and peel from several days to a couple of weeks. During your appointment, a team member will provide instructions on how to care for your skin. Please keep in mind that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the post-treatment process, it's not good to peel the skin off. Picking or peeling the skin can create scars.
I didn’t know how to go about the at home steps for my VI Peel post treatment properly, so I called Ellen and both her and Kristy FaceTimed me at 10pm from home just to help walk me through the steps. They are the most lovely people ever, so kind, and best customer service I’ve ever experienced. Not to mention this peel also has amazing results as well!
