Medical grade chemical peels are an amazing option for individuals who are looking to reverse sun damage or other minor or major imperfections in their skin. These chemical peels allow you to remove dead skin cells and address fine lines, hyperpigmentation and unwanted freckles in a safe and effective way. They are extremely controlled treatments that are performed in the comfort of our office.
Not all medical grade chemical peel are the same. They come in different strength levels and are designed to accomplish different goals. Most chemical peels are performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to go home immediately after the treatment is complete. They are designed to make your face look brighter, tighter and younger.
The level or grade of medical chemical peel that you use will vary depending on the color of your skin, the texture of your skin, how elastic your skin is and the condition you want to treat. Peels come in the form of very superficial, superficial, medium and deep.
Very superficial and superficial chemical peels are designed to be a surface level treatment. They may get rid of some dry skin, address some problems with texture and treat some minor discoloration in your skin. This type of chemical peel usually allows you to go on with your everyday life with little to no downtime.
The next level up is a medium medical chemical peels. This is generally designed to address fine lines, acne and other facial conditions. Depending on your situation, you may need to have multiple treatments spaced out a set amount of time apart. This procedure can require a little bit of downtime, depending on how quickly your body can recover and heal from the procedure.
Deep chemical peels are the most intense. There is downtime involved with this peel. You will need to stay out of the sun for a set amount of time, and you will need to take steps to keep yourself protected as your skin recovers. This type of skin peel tends to deliver the best results, and the results can last for a long time. However, they are not for everyone. Some people only require a superficial peel, while others may only benefit from a deeper peel.
