What Does a Chemical Peel Treat?
A chemical peel is the perfect procedure for treating many facial cosmetic concerns. For example, chemical peels work well at reducing the intensity of acne scarring on the face. They’re also ideal for tackling freckles and damage caused by prolonged sun exposure.
Another reason for the popularity of chemical peels is how they’re effective at treating facial skin damage caused by the effects of aging. Our clients see virtually immediate improvements on age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Finally, a chemical peel is an excellent cosmetic procedure to restore the skin’s natural glow and diminish enlarged pores.
About Chemical Peel Procedures
The process is getting a chemical peel is simpler than you might think. The first step involves having a consultation to discuss your cosmetic concerns. At Physician Skin Solutions, we offer various chemical peel solutions designed to suit individual needs.
For instance, some clients might benefit from microdermabrasion as well as having a chemical peel, while others may opt for other cosmetic treatments in the same session. And some clients may prefer having a gentle chemical peel if they’ve got sensitive skin.
During the chemical peel, an exfoliant acid gets applied to the skin in varying degrees. Areas such as the chin, nose, and cheeks get a thick exfoliant layer, while others like around the eyes and mouth get a thinner application.
The procedure isn’t invasive, and there’s no surgery involved. A chemical peel typically takes around 30 to 45 minutes to perform.
