Chemical Peels in Boca Raton are one of the most sought out for aesthetic services this year. A chemical peel is a restorative aesthetic treatment that helps remove dead skin cells from the top surface layer of the face. This removal of dead cells shows revitalized and rejuvenated skin. The new surface layer of the skin is softer and smoother with minimal fine lines, however, is more sensitive to the sun a short period of time after treatment.
A chemical peel may safely remove wrinkles and restore skin tone when performed by one of our highly qualified specialists. Whether you want microdermabrasion or to use exfoliation to effectively reduce the appearance of rosacea, we assure you are in good hands.
As with any service provided by Glamor Medical, we will take the time to thoroughly explain your goals and expectations, as well as any potential advantages and concerns.
What Happens During A Chemical Peel
Depending on the type of peel, the procedures may differ. When the chemical solution is applied to the face, it causes a minor or tingly sensation that lasts for 3-5 minutes until the peel self-neutralizes. Chemical peels renew the skin by utilizing a chemical exfoliant. It works by generating a controlled wound by eliminating the skin’s surface layers in order to facilitate the creation of new healthy cells.
The acids used in a chemical peel include:
- Carbolic acid
- Lactic acid
- Salicylic acid
What Must I Do After Getting A Chemical Peel
The skin may be red and tight directly following treatment, and peeling may last 3-5 days. Following a peel, use a mild cleanser, toner, and sunscreen, as well as try your best to avoid heavy activity for 2-3 days. It is critical to limit sun exposure when peeling to avoid hyperpigmentation. It is important you refrain from picking or peeling the skin to avoid potential scarring.
Some Things To Avoid
- Scheduling another chemical peel two weeks after your last peel
- Within two weeks of your planned peel, scheduling a microdermabrasion treatment
- Sun exposure and tanning booths 2-3 weeks after your treatment
- Avoid scheduling Botox and collagen injections for one week following treatment
- Avoid waxing or any facial hair removal methods
Consult with your provider before continuing any chemical or medical skincare products after your peel.
How Soon Will I See The Results
Clients are delighted with their results following their chemical peel with us at Glamor Medical in Boca Raton. The application of the acid chemical solution might take up to 30 minutes, based on the scope of the affected region. After several days, the peeling process starts and can take up to a couple of weeks to finish. One of the primary reasons individuals choose chemical peels is because the results are immediate and there is little discomfort and no downtime needed.
How Often Should I Get Chemical Peels?
Because light chemical exfoliation removes just the most superficial skin layers, it causes little or no peeling. These peels can be received in a series of sessions as frequently as once a week. The stronger the peel, the greater the space between. The number of chemical treatments you receive will be determined by your skin type, your level of pain during the processing conditions, how much your skin peels the first time, and the goals that you and I have decided upon.
What Are the Possible Side Effects?
- Redness. After a chemical peel, you might experience some skin redness. Redness can be significant with deeper peels or with specific skin types. It might diminish in a matter of weeks or it could remain for months. The intensity of the mixture used for the chemical peel determines how much redness occurs and how long it lasts.
- Skin color changes. A chemical peel can cause treated skin to grow darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation). However, this is not common.
- Light sensitivity. Because a chemical peel might enhance a patient’s sensitivity to sunlight, it is typically best to avoid sun exposure for many months after the procedure. Following a chemical peel, it is strongly advised to use sunscreen as well as a facial covering, such as a hat.
- Scarring. Scarring from a chemical peel is uncommon, and usually occurs on the bottom half of the face. To lighten the look of these scars, antibiotics and steroid medicines may be suggested.
- Scabbing and peeling are common chemical peel adverse effects that are transient and modest. A patient should not pick at the flakes or peeling skin since doing so might cause infection and scars.
