What is a Chemical Peel?
Gorgeous skin doesn’t happen overnight. The skin cycle becomes longer as we age, causing accumulation of dead skin cells and dull, dry appearance. The epidermis thins and the skin’s barrier weakens as our skin matures. Exfoliation stimulates new epidermal cell growth, which helps smooth, thicken, and strengthen the skin for a younger appearance. A series of chemical peels can provide a bright and radiant look to the skin. Chemical peels improve the skin tone, skin texture, reduce pore size, acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium, or deep. Superficial peels exfoliate within the epidermis which is the first layer of the skin. Skin Lab uses the highest quality of peels including AlumierMD.
A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin in order to remove the outer layers of dead skin cells. This can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, and can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and other skin imperfections.
At Skin Lab Med Spa, located in Falls Church, VA, the chemical peel process is performed by our provider. First, we will evaluate your skin and discuss your goals and concerns with you in order to determine the best type of chemical peel for your specific needs.
What Is The Chemical Peel Process Like?
The chemical peel process typically begins with the application of a pre-peel solution to the skin, which helps to prepare the skin for the peel and to minimize any potential discomfort. Next, the peel solution is applied to the skin and left on for a specific amount of time, depending on the type of peel being used. After the solution is removed, the skin is cleansed and a post-peel moisturizer is applied.
What Happens After The Chemical Peel Procedure?
It's important to follow the post-treatment instructions provided by your master esthetician in order to maximize the benefits of the chemical peel and to promote proper healing. This may include avoiding sun exposure, using sunscreen, and avoiding certain skincare products. Most patients will see some improvement in the texture and tone of their skin after just one chemical peel, but multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
