When searching for the right skin solution for your specific concerns, you may feel overwhelmed by the long list of treatments and procedures available today. For many men and women, chemical peels are a fantastic place to start, as they can be completely customized to meet your particular needs and goals. Not only that, but chemical peels come in a variety of strengths, allowing you to select the intensity of your treatment and the downtime that fits your lifestyle. Scroll down for more information on how a chemical peel can improve your complexion, as discussed by Sarah Smith, M.D., and the knowledgeable team of medical aestheticians at Luxx Medical Spa and Wellness Center in Spanish Fork, UT.
What does a chemical peel do?
While most people know that a chemical peel can help improve your skin, you may not be sure exactly what the treatment does for your complexion, and the answer may surprise you! Unlike other treatments, many of which are designed to target a single complaint, chemical peels can address a long list of skin concerns simultaneously. This helps patients to achieve the most complete transformation possible in the fewest number of treatments. Common skin conditions and symptoms that can be improved with chemical peel treatment include:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Dull, aged skin
Which type of chemical peel should I get?
Because everyone’s complexion is unique, it is important to consult with your provider to determine which type and strength of chemical peel are most suitable for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your specific concerns and goals, explain the expected healing and recovery process associated with various treatment options, and evaluate your complexion. Based on this discussion, we may recommend one of the following kinds of chemical peels:
Light chemical peel
Medium chemical peel
Deep chemical peel
ZO stimulator peel
ZO 3-step peel
How often can I get chemical peels?
The frequency of your chemical peels will also vary based on the type and intensity of chemical peel that is used. While light chemical peels are gentle enough to be used as often as once per week, more intense peels may be reserved for use just once or twice per year after an initial round of treatments.
How long do the results of a chemical peel last?
This will also depend on the specific treatment performed, the strength of the treatment, and your at-home skin care routine. For the best and longest-lasting results, many patients choose more intense peels, but these may require several weeks of downtime while the skin sloughs away and new, healthy skin cells are generated. During the healing process after any chemical peel, patients should avoid sun exposure and harsh topical products and exfoliants, as these can compromise the quality or longevity of your results.
To help you keep your complexion consistently smoother, clearer, and healthier, we will recommend the best treatment schedule and at-home routines for you.
