If you are looking for a fast, safe and effective treatment to revitalize your skin, contact Rejuvenate Med Spa today to schedule a chemical peel.
Based in Oak Brook, Illinois, Rejuvenate Med Spa’s trained aestheticians use a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing damaged outer layers. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Peels help skin that has been damaged by sun exposure, acne, or just getting older.
Chemical peels can combat signs of aging on your:
Chemical peels help you to:
- Decrease lines and wrinkles.
- Achieve a more even skin tone.
- Gain a brighter complexion.
- Get smoother skin.
- Reduce the appearance of age spots.
- Treat rough skin.
At Rejuvenate Med Spa, our team will take the time to discuss your skin issues with you and help you select the chemical peel treatment that will offer you the best results. Depending on the type of peel you receive, you may have to take some pre-treatment action. Our Rejuvenate team will help you develop a pre-treatment skin care plan, if needed.
What to Expect
Every patient and every peel is different, so each chemical peel treatment will be different.
Typically, most people will have their skin cleansed before treatment. Deeper peels may require some form of anesthesia, which our medical team will review with you before your treatment.
After prep work is done, peels are applied, and we’ll watch your skin to determine when it should be removed. After your peel is removed, skin can be treated with cold compresses, creams and lotions, depending on your particular treatment.
Here are some post-treatment tips:
- Use moisturizer to keep skin moist. If skin dries too much, it can scar or crack.
- Don’t scratch or rub treated areas. This can lead to infection.
- Avoid indoor tanning.
- Use sunscreen as advised.
If you have any questions or concerns after treatment, contact Rejuvenate Med Spa and we’ll be happy to help you.
You should see results after skin heals. Recovery time varies depending on the type of peel you received. For some patients it can be one day, for others it can be longer.
Results are not supposed to be permanent and many patients return for follow-up treatments.
Side effects are generally mild, but again, this depends on the patient and the type of peel performed.
Some patients may experience:
- Skin redness.
- Some temporary skin darkening.
- Skin lightening.
Most of our patients experience no significant side effects and return for more peel treatments because they are happy with their results.
Patients who do not follow post-treatment instructions are far more likely to experience side effects. You risk developing post-treatment problems if:
- You don’t properly protect skin from sun exposure.
- Scratch or pick at treated skin.
- Use makeup too soon.
But in the vast majority of cases, patients have no post-treatment problems and peels have been performed safely and effectively for more than half a century. Chemical peels are safe for people of varying skin colors and types.
If you are searching for a safe and effective anti-aging treatment that will help take years off your appearance, a chemical peel may be the best option to achieve your aesthetic goals.
