A chemical peel is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment for facial improvement. Patients often undergo a chemical peel in order to improve skin problems such as:
- Facial wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots and pigmentation problems
Ideal candidates for chemical peels are in good overall health and have minor imperfections on their skin. Although the procedure provides effective results, individuals should have realistic expectations.
The entire treatment is performed on an outpatient basis and is usually completed in less than an hour. After the skin is thoroughly cleansed, the desired chemical peel is applied to the face for an ample amount of time. After the peel is removed, the skin is neutralized and an ointment may be administered to aid in the healing process.
Patients are often very happy with the outcome that a chemical peel gives their face. There is little to no downtime associated with this type of procedure and patients can usually return to their normal activities soon after treatment. Many individuals develop a new sense of confidence because they no longer have to live with certain imperfections and blemishes that previously made them feel self-conscious.
