Chemical Peels

 

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are an in-office treatment option for revitalizing the appearance and health of your skin. The procedure involves a special chemical that you provider at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss applies to your face to remove the surface layer of your skin.

Once the outer layer is gone, the healthy skin underneath shines through, giving your skin a fresh appearance.

eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss can determine which type of chemical peel is best for treating you based on the depth of skin damage. He may recommend a surface peel or a deep chemical peel for addressing skin issues like:

  • Age spots
  • Sunspots
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Discoloration

You can also use a chemical peel to rejuvenate dull, lifeless skin to give you a fresher, healthier look.

What happens during a chemical peel?

During your treatment, your eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss specialist applies a special chemical agent, usually a glycolic or salicylic acid, to the surface layer of your skin. The chemical may need to set for a few minutes before he wipes it away and thoroughly cleans your skin.

The new, healthy skin is immediately noticeable. You may need to apply a moisturizing lotion or serum to continue to hydrate and nourish your skin.

For many people, chemical peels do cause redness and mild irritation that goes away on its own in a few days. You may also have some mild swelling. As swelling begins to dissipate and redness subsides, you’ll see the maximum benefit of your chemical peel.

The team at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss can discuss how long you can expect it to take your skin to fully heal during your consultation. Deep chemical peels take longer for the skin to heal than surface peels, with redness and swelling last a week or more. 

You may wish to avoid social engagement until your skin heals fully. Otherwise, you can resume normal activities right after your appointment.

Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun so it’s important that you use a daily sunscreen and moisturizer to prevent burns, dryness, and flaking.

How long will chemical peel results last?

Your initial results can last for several months, but the team may recommend additional chemical peels to help you achieve optimal benefits of treatment.

Following your procedure, the skin looks brighter and evenly toned. Areas of discoloration should disappear, and you can see a noticeable reduction in the severity of facial creases and wrinkles. 

You can maximize the results of your chemical peel by following a good skin care routine, using sunscreen, and eating a healthy diet.
