Chemical peels offer patients solution to reduce sun damage, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles quickly, giving patients almost immediate results.
Chemical peels acids to create a controlled burn of the outermost layers of this skin. Acids most frequently used in the procedure include alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, or acids derived from fruits. After the solution is applied, the skin will blister and peel away, revealing fresh, bright, new skin.
The type of acid used for the chemical peel is determined by the patient’s needs, as different solutions work better for different skin problems. There are also different levels of peels, from light (lunchtime) peels to deep peels that differ regarding how long the solution is applied, how deep the solution penetrates, and how long patients can expect downtime after the procedure. Infinity Medical Group also offers the VI Peel, a chemical peel that is safe to use for all skin types and tones.
Patients who choose chemical peels to rejuvenate their skin can maximize their results by having a peel every 4 to 6 weeks until they reach their desired look. Chemical peels are not effective on patients with severe creasing and wrinkles, sagging, skin bulging, or a reduction in facial volume. Chemical peels can also be combined with other procedures for dramatic results.
