What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that exfoliate your skin to achieve a brighter and more youthful appearance. These outpatient procedures are safe and effective when performed by professionals like double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stein.
Chemical Peel Benefits
There are several benefits of getting a chemical peel procedure. This non-surgical treatment tackles many age-related skin concerns. They can make profound changes in your skin by minimizing the appearance of the following:
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
Chemical peels use chemical solutions to treat the skin on the hands, face, and neck. This procedure removes any damaged surface skin, revealing fresh, younger-looking skin underneath. The new skin is smoother with less damage and wrinkles. Additionally, chemical peels improve your skin’s tone and texture to help you enjoy a clearer complexion.
There are multiple types of chemical peels; some are lighter than others, with different recovery times. Dr. Stein performs a variety of facial peels, including phenol peels, which require a substantial amount of training and practice to execute effectively.
After a light peel procedure, the patient’s skin may be red, swollen, and flaky for 4-7 days. Deeper peels will require about two weeks of recovery. You may also feel some stinging after mild or deep peel procedures.
After a chemical peel treatment, doctors may provide you with protective ointments to help soothe your skin. Your new skin will also be more sensitive after a chemical peel procedure, so you may have to avoid the sun for as long as your doctor recommends.
Am I a Candidate for Chemical Peels?
Usually, light-skinned patients make better candidates for chemical treatments. However, darker-skinned people may also be eligible to receive chemical peels and obtain great results. It is also important to keep in mind that patients with specific health or skin conditions might not be able to receive a chemical peel treatment.
A consultation with Dr. Stein will help you discover which facial peel is right for you. During your consultation, he will examine your skin and discuss the treatment options available to help achieve your skin goals.
