If you are looking for a relaxing treatment experience that can rejuvenate the skin and eliminate cosmetic concerns, look no further than chemical peels. Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness offers a range of chemical peel treatments to the residents of Winston-Salem, Fayetteville and Greensboro, NC.
What is Involved in a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are a facial rejuvenation treatment that use chemical solutions to cause controlled exfoliation of the skin. By carefully exfoliating the outermost layers of the skin, we can eliminate many signs of aging and cosmetic concerns. In fact, chemical peels can be used for all of the following concerns:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Acne and acne scars
- Sun damage
- And more
At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we offer PCA peels and TCA peels in varying strengths. Each peel is customized to the patient’s skin type, so even those with sensitive skin can enjoy the benefits of chemical peels.
Are Chemical Peels Right for Me?
If you would like to rejuvenate the skin or alleviate any of the cosmetic concerns listed above without the use of invasive techniques, you may be a good candidate for chemical peels. As with all our procedures, we are proud to offer financing options for the chemical peel treatment to make it a more affordable treatment for those who desire it.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
The first step in chemical peel treatments is cleansing the skin. This prepares the skin for the chemical peel solution, ensuring maximum efficacy. Then, we will apply the chemical solution to the skin, covering the whole surface of the face.
The chemical peel solution will rest on the face for a designated period of time. The duration of this step depends on the strength of the peel being administered and your treatment goals. Once this time is up, the chemical solution will be washed off and your treatment will be complete.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From a Chemical Peel?
The most significant part of the recovery process from chemical peels is the peeling of the skin that occurs a few days to a week after treatment. Your skin may appear red or irritated for a few days before transitioning into the peeling phase. This is a natural part of the skin’s healing process.
The skin will peel for a few days, revealing bright, healthy, and clear skin underneath. You may need to adjust your skin care routine during this period to prevent any damage to the skin. However, you should be able to resume most normal activities immediately after your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Chemical Peel?
You can expect to see results from your chemical peel treatment after the peeling has occurred and your skin has healed. However, you may need multiple chemical peel treatments to achieve optimal results, especially if you are trying to eliminate specific cosmetic concerns.
Most chemical peels can be repeated on a monthly basis until your desired results are achieved. After this point, occasional chemical peels can be enough to maintain your results.
