Cosmetic Chemical Peel
Chemical Peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used for this purpose. The precise formula used may be adjusted to meet each client’s needs. Although Chemical Peel may be performed in conjunction with a face-lift, it is not a substitute for such surgery, nor will it prevent or slow the aging process. We provide basic information about certain types of chemical-peel treatments and the results you might expect. This summary won’t answer all your questions, since much depends on your individual circumstances. Once you and one of our physicians have decided on a specific peel program, be sure to ask about any details that you do not understand.
Deciding whether Chemical Peel is right for you. Chemical Peel is most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons—to enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. Chemical Peel may also remove precancerous skin growths, soften acne facial scars, and even control acne.
Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin for people who can’t spare the time to recover from a phenol or TCA peel. AHA peels may be used to treat fine wrinkling, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation, and acne. Various concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best result. One of our physicians will make these decisions during your consultation and as the treatment proceeds. An alphahydroxy acid, such as glycolic acid, can also be mixed with a facial wash or cream in lesser concentrations as part of a daily skin-care regimen to improve the skin’s texture.
