Everyone wants clear skin free from dullness and signs of aging. However, because the face is exposed to the elements each and every day, maintaining youthfulness and beauty may be more difficult for some men and women. Many patients who visit the practice of Primary Aesthetic Skin Care are often looking for solutions for poor skin texture and tone, and may find that treatments such as chemical peels may benefit them greatly!
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is exactly as it sounds—it’s a blend of chemicals chosen specifically for the patient based on their skin to essentially peel the upper, superficial layer of the skin. By doing so, the skin is rejuvenated quickly and easily, address dullness and poor skin texture. The blend of chemicals used on the skin will vary from patient to patients depending on the goals they would like to achieve. The type of chemical peel used will also vary from mild to strong. Milder chemical peels produce some redness but in most situations, do not require downtime, while stronger peels go much deeper and can penetrate more layers of the skin, requiring patients to take extended downtime from social activities to allow for healing. However, the stronger the peel, the faster and more dramatic the results.
What chemicals are used in chemical peels?
There are a selection of certain acids and ingredients that are commonly used in chemical peels. Depending on the strength of the peel, the chemicals used in treatment may include:
- Glycolic acid
- Alphahydroxy acid
- Trichloroacetic acid
Choosing the one right for your skin begins with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation at Primary Aesthetic Skin Care. Our professionals will examine the skin, speak to patients about the desired results they seek to achieve, and help in choosing the chemical blend best for their unique needs.
