Chemical peels help exfoliate the skin by using an acid to remove the outermost layer (epidermis), allowing the dermis to reveal itself beneath. A small portion of the dermis may be peeled off as well, depending on the strength of the chemical peel. This results in healthier and younger-looking skin.
Different skin conditions can also be treated with Chemical Peels, including:
Chemical peels can be applied to more than the face. It is also effective on the neck and hands: wrinkles, age spots, and freckles will be reduced. The chemical peels we offer at Lexington Aesthetics Medical Spa include various options, depending on your needs.
Perfect Derma™ Peel
The Perfect Derma™ Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic treatments. All skin types can benefit from this medical-grade peel, and patients of any ethnicity can achieve beautiful results. Perfect Derma Peel contains four acids-TCA, retinoic, salicylic, and kojic-as well as glutathione, an antioxidant that gives skin a healthy glow. This advanced peel treatment is recommended for patients who want better skin tone, texture, and pigmentation to achieve a brighter, smoother complexion.
Glo Skin Beauty Peels
With Chemical Peels, dead and pigmented skin cells are removed from the epidermis using different acids—smoother skin results when the dead skin cells are removed.
Chemical Peels refresh the entire face, provide a natural glow, smooth texture, and eliminate blemishes.
It takes about 2-4 days for the skin to begin peeling. With lighter peels, you may not peel at all. However, even in the absence of peeling, the skin will still exfoliate at an accelerated rate to reveal a brighter, clearer complexion. Full results are typically seen around seven days.
It is a game-changer for people suffering from acne, uneven skin tone, and a rough texture on their skin. It is the ultimate facial rejuvenation treatment. For optimal results, we usually recommend three or more treatments.
The recovery time after a peel will vary depending on the type and strength of chemical peel you have. Chemical peels may cause your skin to feel tight or sunburned. Redness may only last for a few hours with lighter peels while deeper peels will have a longer recovery. The proper medical-grade skincare regimen is important to speed up the healing process and optimize results. It would help if you avoided any sun exposure during the early healing period.
