For those who have rough, pitted, scarred or just sagging or aged skin, a chemical peel may have a great deal of appeal. Unlike plastic surgery techniques such as face lifts, a chemical peel doesn’t involve surgery nor does it require extensive recovery or downtime. In fact, a chemical peel can actually help more than a face lift for those with scars or rough skin texture.

If you are about to have your first chemical peel, you may be wondering exactly what takes place during the procedure. A member of our medical staff will, in essence, place a chemical on your face, hands or throat that will remove the top layers of the skin. Once this layer has completed its work, the skin left behind may look red or irritated for some time.
However, once this redness fades, the skin will begin to look fresh, much smoother and much younger. Many old acne scars, discolorations and even some fine lines may be greatly diminished or even gone completely. Unfortunately, most chemical peels will not reduce pores, large wrinkles or lines, broken capillaries and they cannot help tighten the skin.
There are a variety of chemicals that are used in each peel, and they can include glycol or alpha hydroxy acid. Each type of chemical peel will have their very own specific uses based on your unique skin issues. This is one reason why it is so crucial to go to a licensed professional for these procedures – like those on staff at Rejuvenate MedSpa. The professionals have all of the information and range of products available that will help ensure you get specifically the type of peel you need.
The side effects of a chemical peel can range greatly, but often include redness, irritation and even some soreness. However, overall the results of chemical peels are very positive. You may need to stay out of the sun for a few weeks until your skin is fully healed. You may also need to use special lotions or creams for a time to help your skin recover from the irritation and redness.
This procedure is conducted as an out-patient basis and requires little, if any, down-time. For those busy men and women who just want better and younger looking skin in a hurry, this is an excellent and very affordable procedure that can remove many of the signs of aging and damage.
