For many patients, chemical peels produce great results. Call to find out more about how you can address you skin ailments, so you can look your best. Chemical peels have been around for centuries. A chemical peel is a nonsurgical procedure which exfoliates (takes off) the Stratum Corneum (the top layer of skin) with mild, medium or deep reaching chemicals. [caption id="attachment_722" align="alignleft" width="300"] Chemical Peel: Before and after[/caption] Once removed, the layer of skin below replaces the removed layer with skin that is usually smoother, clearer and tighter. Mild and medium peels can be administered by an aesthetician. Deep chemical peels can only be performed by a board certified dermatologist, physician or plastic surgeon and members of members of dermatology associations About 413,000 women and 31,000 men have chemical peels to clear up their skin. Below are the different types of chemical peels. In all cases, the face is washed and then the solution is applied with a smooth and consistent layer, then removed after a predetermined time or appearance. The treatment is approved by the American Dermatological Association . Chemical peels are performed under a variety of treatments and goals. Alpha hydroxy acid peels Alpha hydroxy acid (AHAs) are naturally occurring carboxylic acid found in sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. Beta hydroxy acid peels Beta hydroxy acid peels can go deeper into the pores than AHA peels. Studies show that BHA peels control sebum excretion, which further helps relieve persistent acne from reappearing. Chemical peels can achieve fantastic results. Retinoic acid peel Retinoic peel is a facial peel that is also performed in the office of a plastic surgeon, or a dermatologist. This is a deeper peel than the BHA or AHA peels and is used to remove scars as well as wrinkles and pigmentation problems. The client leaves with the chemical peel solution on their face. The peeling process takes place on the third day. More dramatic changes to the skin require multiple peels over time. Croton oil / Phenol peel Formerly known as a phenol peel is a deep chemical peel, which deeply resurfaces the skin by removing the Stratum Corneum (top layer) and eventually results in regeneration of the dermal architecture, effectively restoring younger dermis in a way that cannot be replicated by other, more superficial peels. It is performed under the care of a physician and sometimes requires general anesthesia or sedation. Consult with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon for the best plan for your individual situation.
Am I a good candidate for a chemical peel?Good candidates for chemical peels experience sun-dried skin, uneven or blotchy skin, scars, and facial wrinkles. Because of the various strengths of peels most people can gain benefits from their use.
Post-treatment expectationsYou may experience peeling, soreness, discolored and blotchy skin before the new skin begins to heal in the place of the removed layer of skin. With deep peels your face may be visually alarming after a few days, but as the skin heals a smoother more youthful look will emerge. This can take 7 to 10 days, which will feel like a long time, but resist the urge to panic. During this time swimming and strenuous activities should be avoided. With light and mild peels there is no recovery required so you can resume your daily routines immediately after the procedure.
Averse reactions to chemical peelsNegative reactions do not occur often. Consult with a board certified dermatologist on risks specific to you and the chemical peel you are considering. Generally, negative reactions to chemical peels include: hematoma or Sarama "accumulation of blood under the skin" which may require removal. Infection, bleeding, skin sensitivity, inconsistent coloration, tiny whiteheads. For more information, click here
CostDeep chemical peels typically cost between $1500-$3000, depending upon the size of the area treated. Because these peels are done under a physician's care they can be a bit more expensive. Most insurance does not cover the cost. However, if it is prescribed for a medical condition such as, to treat precancerous skin condition or improve designated scars, coverage may be available. Consult with your medical service provider if you believe this situation applies to you.
