What Results Can I Expect from a Chemical Peel?

Are you unhappy with the look or feel of your skin? If so, you may be able to benefit from a chemical peel! This treatment involves using a special chemical solution to peel away the skin’s topmost layers to improve skin tone, texture, and more. If you’re considering this treatment, you may be wondering what results to expect. Read on for more information regarding chemical peels and how they can benefit you!

Types of Chemical Peels

There are three main types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial peels are the least invasive peel and are generally used to give a refreshed, brighter appearance to the skin. This type of peel uses a mild acid to remove the outermost layer of skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath.  Think of this as a maintenance treatment, scheduling this peel every 6-8 weeks or so to keep the skin glowing!

Medium peels treat more advanced concerns such as fine lines, superficial wrinkles, sun damage, and acne. This type of peel uses a stronger to reach the middle layer of skin cells. As a result, medium peels often have more visible results than superficial peels.  Most people will benefit from a medium peel 1-2 times each year.

Deep peels are the strongest type of peel and treat deep wrinkles and severe sun damage. This type of peel uses an even stronger acid to reach the deepest layer of skin cells. Commonly, you will need some form of anesthesia to have the deep peel treatment performed.  Deep peels can produce dramatic results.

What to Expect During Treatment

Our team will help you choose the right type of peel for your needs during your consultation. We will also discuss what you can expect during and after your treatment. Most peels are performed in-office and take less than an hour to complete.

After your peel, depending on the type you may experience skin redness and sensitivity for a few days as it heals. You will also need to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen while your skin is healing. Dr. Sabbagh and Dr. Baca, together with the Straith Clinic aesthetician, will provide you with the aftercare information and recommendations for a skin care routine to ensure optimal and long-lasting results.

Once your skin is fully healed you will enjoy smoother, brighter, and healthier skin! Your glowing skin on the outside can provide a boost to your confidence on the inside!
