Have you noticed that your complexion isn’t as smooth or even as you would like it to be? You can apply topical products to support healthier skin, but you may need a more thorough treatment to produce real results. A chemical face peel can remove imperfections and help you achieve a more vibrant complexion overall.
At Revive Wellness Group, we offer chemical peels as beneficial cosmetic treatments. Our face peel procedures can help you achieve a healthier, more youthful complexion without over-the-counter products.
What Is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that removes the top layer of the skin to reveal healthier skin underneath. During a chemical peel, specialized solutions are applied to the skin to produce a peeling effect. This treatment can be used to resolve a variety of aesthetic concerns that affect the facial skin.
Chemical peels are non-surgical outpatient treatments that don’t require any incisions, sutures, or anesthesia. These treatments can take anywhere from half an hour to one hour to complete, depending on the degree of your peel.
The Benefits of Chemical Peels
Why are chemical peels such popular treatments? They can offer a variety of aesthetic benefits after just one session.
More Even Skin Tone
One of the most common aesthetic concerns is dark pigmentation or sun damage spots. A chemical facial peel is a great way to resolve this hyperpigmentation.
Chemical peels remove the top layer of skin, where most of these highly pigmented skin cells are found. Then, a fresh layer of skin with a more even tone is revealed.
Smoother Skin Texture
Skin imperfections like acne, blackheads, and scars can cause your skin’s texture to be bumpy and uneven. Chemical peels can resolve these issues by removing impurities and revealing a smoother complexion underneath. A face peel can also reduce mild fine lines and wrinkles to make the skin appear to be smoother and more youthful.
More Vibrant Skin
Many people struggle with dull, lifeless skin. While serums and creams can keep your skin moisturized, severely dull skin needs to be addressed at a deeper level.
Dull skin can be the result of environmental factors and toxins that affect skin cells. Chemical peels resolve this concern by removing the top layer of damaged cells and unearthing healthy skin cells beneath.
Reduction in Scarring
Do you have acne scarring or blemishes? Facial scarring can be difficult to resolve, even with quality topical treatments. A chemical face peel can help reduce the appearance of scars by removing damaged skin cells in the outermost layer of the skin.
Candidates for Chemical Peels
Are you wondering if face peel treatment is right for you? Chemical peels are designed for clients who struggle with any of the following complexion concerns:
- Mild fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark pigmentation
- Sun damage
- Excess oil production
- Acne scarring
The only way to know that you are a candidate for a chemical peel is by having a consultation with a cosmetic medicine provider. We can assess your skin and evaluate any concerns you have to confirm that chemical peels are the right course of treatment. If not, we will discuss other aesthetic treatments that can better meet your needs.
How Is a Chemical Peel Performed?
During a chemical face peel, you will be able to sit back and relax while we administer your treatment. The process begins by cleansing the skin thoroughly. There cannot be any debris or bacteria on your skin when you receive your facial peel.
Once your skin is completely clean, we will apply a customized blend of solutions. These solutions contain chemicals that produce a peeling effect on the skin.
We allow the peel to sit on the skin for a specific amount of time, depending on the level of the peel. The solution may sit for about five to ten minutes for milder peels. For deeper chemical peels, it can take anywhere from half an hour to 45 minutes.
After your chemical peel has progressed and the skin begins to peel or slough, we will wash the solution from your skin. The peeling process will often continue for some time afterward until the entire top layer of the skin is removed.
When your chemical peel is complete, you will be able to return home and resume most of your normal activities. We recommend that you avoid anything that could irritate your skin, such as direct or prolonged sun exposure, exfoliating products, and tanning beds.
Chemical Peel Results
Your skin may be red in the days immediately following your chemical peel. Most people see the results of their treatment about one week after the procedure. Your skin should look smooth, even, and bright. These results can last a long time if you maintain them well.
Wash your face daily with a gentle cleanser to keep your skin healthy after a chemical peel. Apply a nourishing moisturizer and sunscreen every day to protect your skin from bacteria, debris, and other environmental factors.
If imperfections or impurities return, you can have your chemical facial peel repeated. Many people choose to have a face peel performed every three to four months to maintain their desired appearance.
