You come to Vedas Medical Spa & Wellness Center for a monthly facial to moisturize and soothe your skin. Perhaps you are a member of our Skin Fit Program that helps you schedule and budget treatments over a full year. Skin Fit includes three Oxygen Facials and three HydraFacials, among other treatments. But when you notice age spots, aging skin, hyperpigmentation, and melasma, it’s time to consider a chemical peel.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel can improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. The outer layer of skin is literally peeled off using a chemical solution that exfoliates it. New skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled, although it is temporarily more sensitive to the sun.
Different Peels for Different Purposes
The mildest superficial chemical peel is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin, and uses alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid that penetrates only the outer layer of skin. More than one peel might be required, depending on the amount of discoloration.
A medium peel using glycolic or trichloroacetic acid penetrates the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells, and is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration, as well as smoothing rough skin. More than one peel might be required, depending on the extent of improvement required.
To remove moderate lines, age spots, freckles, and shallow scars, and to give a dramatic improvement in skin appearance, a deep peel using trichloroacetic acid or phenol penetrates the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. This deep peel can only be performed once.
Chemical Peels Can Help With…
Acne scars, aging skin, crow’s feet, hyperpigmentation, melasma, scars, sun damaged skin, sagging skin, and wrinkles, among other conditions. If you have any of these, call Vedas for your complimentary consultation for a thorough evaluation to discuss your options, contraindications, and potential side effects of chemical peels.
After the Peel
Recovery and healing after chemical peels are crucial. You will avoid all sun exposure until healing is complete for up to a week after a superficial peel, two weeks after a medium peel, and up to six months after a deep peel. You must apply mild lotions, creams, and moisturizers daily and follow post-procedure care strictly. You may be scheduled for one or more follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
