If you have never tried a chemical peel before, perhaps 2017 is the year for you to get “peel savvy.” New Visage is the perfect choice for your first experience in chemical peel treatments, since we offer a wide range of procedures that can be tailored to your specific concerns and desired results. Before you schedule your treatment, there are a few basic facts about chemical peels you need to know.
The Purpose of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a type of exfoliation treatment that works by removing the outermost layers of skin cells on the surface of the dermis. This reveals softer, smooth skin underneath that often has fewer imperfections and blemishes. The depth of a chemical peel can be adjusted based on the specific treatment targets and the desired results of the patient.
Superficial peels are a quick, easy way to refresh and revitalize the complexion without discomfort or downtime. The results are subtle and the treatment needs to be repeated regularly to maintain those results. Deeper peels work into more dermal layers to produce more dramatic results. However, they also may require a period of flaking and peeling as the skin shed the outer layers to reveal the new skin underneath.
Depending on the specific formulation and depth of the peel you choose, these treatments can address a variety of skin concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin texture and tone
- Enlarged pores
- Shallow scarring
- Pigmentation spots and freckles
Chemical peels can also be used to treat skin conditions like acne and rosacea. No matter what your reason for selecting a chemical peel, it is important to select an experienced provider to ensure the treatment you receive is geared directly to your skin needs. At New Visage, we perform chemical peels daily to help our patients treat different conditions and enhance the health and appearance of the skin.
Chemical peels are not “one-size-fits-all” treatments, which is why we provide a number of different peel solutions for our patients. Common choices include:
- Obagi Radiance Peel – a superficial peel usually performed in a series of treatment sessions to achieve the best results
- Skinceuticals Micropeel – a multi-step peel that can address a wide range of skin issues with minimal discomfort and downtime
- VI Peel – an effective anti-aging treatment that offers a host of benefits, particularly when combined with some of our other skin treatments
Our expert staff will take the time to discuss your concerns so that we can recommend the best chemical peel for you.
