Offering the best in chemical peel aesthetic treatments Absolute Wellness and Aesthetics provides patients with multiple options for individualized facial treatment with chemical solutions (glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) that give you healthier, more radiant skin on the face. Our chemical peel treatments help reduce skin flaws such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation, and more. Chemical peels remove dead or damaged skin cells by applying an individualized solution to your skin, causing the outer layer to peel off. You should notice a clearer, smoother complexion as your skin heals and begins to repair itself. A chemical peel is a non-invasive way to make your skin brighter that is commonly used on the face, neck, and décolletage.
Variations Of Chemical Peels
You can have a light chemical peel on your lunch break and get back to your day. This strength of peel will remove the top layer of skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you get a light treatment around once a month for the best glowing results.
This strength of chemical peel penetrates deeper into your skin, and you’ll usually prefer to do this level of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also prefer to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and around an hour after a chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have significant damage to their skin such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep peel treatment, and it will require the most recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that could leave your face peeling and itchy for a week or a few days more. Patients who receive a deep peel typically have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, significant acne scars, or deep-seated scars. As this strength of peel is typically a little uncomfortable and we will offer Pro Nox (laughing gas). Most patients do not require Pro Nox but it is available when needed.
Receiving the suggestions of an aesthetic professional is the first step in the journey to healthier skin. A team member at Absolute can assess your skin in a consultation in our office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for ideal results. Chemical peel candidates of both genders typically have noticeable problems in their skin like scars, rough patches, hyperpigmentation, flaky skin, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and much more. We will suggest multiple types of chemical peels to fit your goals.
To administer your peel, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position. After your skin has been cleansed, we will apply the customized solution to your treatment areas. The solution will be massaged onto your face and left to sit for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Afterward, we will wash off the solution and apply a neutralizing agent. After the procedure, you are encouraged to wear a hat or sunscreen to protect yourself from environmental exposure.
Depending on the level of the peel you choose, you can expect the face to itch and peel from a few days to a week or more. One of our team members will talk about methods to care for your skin during your consultation. Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches during the post-treatment process, it is never helpful to pick the skin off. You could cause scarring to your delicate skin!
