Whether you want to treat discolored skin, scars, and wrinkles from your face or want more youthful and healthier skin, you want to give a shot to chemical peels.
As the name indicates, chemical peels are the chemical solutions applied to the skin to peel off the top layer of skin, revealing the more youthful and healthier skin underneath. In chemical peels, acid solutions are used to exfoliate the skin. Chemical peels are performed either alone or in combination with other procedures and can be done at different depths, from light to deep.
Let’s talk about how a chemical peel is done and where you can go in Dallas, TX, for outstanding aesthetic care.
Before Chemical Peels
Chemical peels can be performed in an outpatient surgical facility or at an office. Before the actual procedure, your face will be thoroughly cleaned with agents to remove excess oil. Your hair will be protected, and your eyes will be covered with ointment, gauze, goggles, or tape.
In the case of light peels, pain relievers aren’t needed, while for medium chemical peels, painkillers are used before the procedure. Deep chemical peels require sedatives.
During Chemical Peel Procedure
The procedure varies based on the type of chemical peel. Firstly, during a superficial chemical peel, your doctor will apply a chemical solution containing salicylic acid or glycolic acid on your face with a cotton ball, brush, gauze, or sponge. While a chemical solution is on your face, you might feel a little stinging sensation on your face. Your treated skin starts to whiten. Then the chemical solution will be removed from your face either with a neutralizing solution or washed off.
After Chemical Peels
Following a superficial and light chemical peel procedure, your skin will be red, dry, and mildly irritated. Your doctor will apply a protective ointment like petroleum jelly to soothe it. You must avoid rubbing, picking, or scratching your skin.
Following redness, you will also notice scaling on your skin that usually lasts anywhere from three to seven days. Even though you can wear make-up the day following the procedure, it will take about one to seven days for your skin to heal after the procedure. After the peels, your new skin will temporarily be lighter or darker than normal.
To achieve your desired results, typically, three to five peels are needed that may be repeated every two to five weeks.
