Facial rejuvenation is always a point of emphasis for our patients, and chemical peels have been an incredibly dependable tool in this area for many years. We have spoken to so many patients over the years who are interested in a chemical peel treatment to rejuvenate their facial complexion, but don’t know exactly how to proceed. The truth is, there can be a lot to know before simply undergoing a chemical peel treatment. Every person and every complexion is different and these are not one-size-fits-all treatments. So with this in mind, our cosmetic experts were happy to lay out a few simple facts to help prospective patients gain a better understanding of chemical peels and what they can offer.
There Are a Wide Variety of Chemical Peels Available
Here at Laser Lights, we offer several outstanding chemical peel options that vary in terms of strength and the aesthetic imperfections that they are able to address. We begin the process with a chemical peel consultation appointment. During this appointment, our licensed and experienced aestheticians will discuss the patient’s specific skin care concerns, evaluate their complexion, and make a determination about the best chemical peel for their specific needs.
“Peeling” Is Just a Form of Exfoliation
While we understand that the idea of skin peeling off can seem strange or even scary to some people, the process is far gentler than the name would suggest. And this peeling process is essential for shedding dead skin cells and revealing the healthier, glowing skin in the layers below.
Chemical Peels Are Not Just For The Face
It’s true that chemical peels are often thought of as a way to improve facial skin, but when applied by an expert provider like the cosmetic professionals at Laser Lights, chemical peels can provide benefits elsewhere. We have considerable experience using chemical peels to rejuvenate the hands, as well as the back, chest, feet, and other areas depending on the patient’s needs.
Some Post-Treatment Redness Is Normal
After undergoing a chemical peel, it’s natural for the skin to be red and irritated. This will increase for people who undergo strong and more penetrative types of peels. However, this is a normal and temporary sensation. We may apply a topical ointment to help soothe the treatment area, but this depends on the type of peel used and the patient’s level of discomfort after treatment. We recommend waiting at least a day after lighter peels before applying makeup, and at least a week for more powerful ones in order to let the skin heal properly. But we will review your aftercare during your consultation.
We understand that no two people are exactly alike, which is why our providers work so hard during consultation appointments to make sure our patients always feel comfortable, informed, and ready before any treatment takes place. Whether you are interested in a chemical peel, non-surgical fat reduction with SculpSure®, microneedling, or any other treatment, our experts do everything they can to make sure each of our patients has the most positive and satisfying experience possible.
