Chemical Peels

Facial Peels

What Is A Chemical peel?

A chemical peel is the application of an acid to the skin to achieve a controlled burn to the top layers of skin. Chemical peels are used to remove fine lines, especially around the mouth small scars discolorations such as freckles or liver spots areas of sun damaged skin and spots of precancerous keratoses.

 

Peels can be applied to the whole face or to an isolated area, such as the upper lip. A full-face peel is usually done as a separate procedure before or after a face lift or eyelid surgery. However, if only a small area is being treated, the peel may be done at the same time as the surgical procedure. Chemical peels cannot be done around the eyes.

 

The type and concentration of acid controls the depth of the burn used to achieve superficial, medium, and deep peels.

 

Superficial peels are produced using alphahydroxy acids (AHA) (glycolic, lactic, and fruit acids). AHA peels are used to treat rough, dry skin and improve texture. These acids can be mixed with a bleaching agent to correct uneven pigmentation.

 

Medium peels are most often done using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA peels are used to treat fine wrinkles and superficial blemishes.


Deep peels are produced using carbolic acid (phenol). It is used to treat coarse wrinkles, blotches caused by sun, birth-control pills, or aging, and precancerous growths. Phenol is almost always used only on the face. It may cause scarring on the neck or other areas of the body.

GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL

 

The Glycolic acid peel is a non-invasive, non-surgical facial treatment that can refine the texture of your skin and improve your appearance by revealing younger-looking skin and a clear, radiant complexion. Glycolic Acid is the most versatile and easily absorbed of the Alpha hydroxy Acids. Glycolic Acid is derived from sugar cane. It was developed through scientific research and found to be extremely effective in the treatment of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How does the Glycolic Acid Peel work?

The peel removes a micro-thin top layer of skin, ridding skin of damaged cells and treating wrinkles and fine lines, age spots and skin discoloration, and surface sun damage. Treatments are often administered in combination with microdermabrasion. The chemical peels are applied through a series of sessions, beginning with a 20-30% glycolic solution and increasing to 70% over the course of treatment.

 

Does the procedure hurt?

Peels can best be described as uncomfortable. The smell – of burnt butterscotch – can be a bit unsettling, but the solution itself causes no pain as it is applied to the skin, much like a face mask. A slight discomfort is felt as the technician applies the glycolic acid solution. The patient will feel a light chill followed by overall tingling and finally, a light burning sensation as the treatment begins to take effect. The technician will ensure that you remain comfortable and that your skin is cooled properly.

 

What does a typical session involve?

The technician will cleanse the patient’s skin before the treatment, and will apply a glycolic acid solution followed by a neutralizing solution. Immediately following the treatment, the skin will feel simultaneously tight, and greasy.

 

How long does the treatment take?

Glycolic acid peels are considered “lunchtime” treatments because a typical session lasts between 35 and 45 minutes, and patients can go back to work immediately after the procedure. The skin will look good, albeit slightly oilier than usual. A light scent will linger, reminiscent of cucumber, or avocado. This is the neutralizing solution, still resting on the skin’s surface while the peel continues to work on the skin’s layers. In most cases, no one will even know that you just had a glycolic acid peel.

 

Will my insurance cover the Glycolic Acid Peel?

Cosmetic procedures and treatments that are not considered medically necessary are generally not covered by medical insurance companies.
