Chemical peels are a phenomenal, non-invasive treatment for reversing the aging process. The procedure is administered by applying chemicals that can peel away a layer of skin, triggering a healing process.
Why choose chemical peels?
Peels can correct several skin concerns including dark spots, wrinkles, and acne, but are also very useful for sun-damaged skin, rosacea, and skin laxity. Chemical peels can also help reverse the aging process, and restore blemished, unevenly pigmented, and wrinkled skin to a beautiful, clear state.
How do chemical peels work?
A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it blister and eventually peel off. The skin underneath is smoother and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, etc. is reduced.
How do I prepare for peels?
Minimal preparation is required, but safety measures are recommended, including avoiding unprotected sun exposure, and certain cosmetic treatments and/or hair removal.
What can I expect during treatments?
During a chemical peel, a topical solution is applied directly to freshly-cleansed skin. This solution can vary in strength and may be left on the surface for 10 minutes or more, depending on the type of peel used.
Typically, chemical peels take about 30 minutes and can be done on both the face and the back.
Are chemical peels painful?
Most patients feel a burning sensation during the treatment that lasts 5 to 10 minutes, followed by a minor stinging feeling. At TKI, we aim to leave you feeling as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
Following a chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn will occur. Redness will be followed by scaling that ends in 3 to 7 days. Peels may be repeated at 1 to 4 week intervals until the desired result.
