Enhance Skin with Peels and Facial Treatments
Some issues with complexion go beyond your beauty care routine. Skin with acne scars or uneven skin tone can benefit from the transformative qualities of chemical facial peels. Newly revealed and regenerated skin offers a smoother and less wrinkled complexion.
What is the procedure?
A facial peel also called a chemical peel, is a procedure that uses the application of a chemical solution to improve the appearance of skin on the face, neck, or even hands. The solution causes the skin to peel off and exposes regenerated, new skin. This is ideal for anyone looking to treat wrinkles, acne scars, aging skin, crow’s feet, hyper-pigmentation, scars, sun damage, and melasma.
Although a patient could seek to undergo chemical peel treatment at a medical spa, the chemical peels performed by the team in our office exceed the offerings available at your everyday medical spa. Some of our peels are only available in a physician’s office and may have transformative results that exceed that of a chemical peel from a medical spa.
Chemical facial peels generally work best on patients with fair skin tone. New, regenerated skin will be extremely sensitive to sunlight, so precautions should be taken to protect your skin after a chemical facial peel.
How it works
A facial peel or chemical peel procedure works by creating a controlled wound, which allows new skin to replace the previous epidermis. Although this sounds scary, the professional staff at Kevitch, Chung, and Jan Aesthetic Surgery Associates takes special care to make it as comfortable as possible. Most patients have a reaction similar to a sunburn, depending on the chemical peel, with a burning sensation that should not last more than five to ten minutes. A cool compress can help ease the stinging as well as minor pain medication if you are particularly sensitive to pain.
The process of applying a chemical facial peel is relatively quick. After thoroughly cleaning your skin, we will apply the chemical solutions to small areas of your skin. Healing time depends on the depth of treatment and the type of chemical facial peel administered.
