Chemical Peels Q & A
What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are aesthetic procedures that improve the skin’s appearance by sloughing away the uppermost layers of old and dull skin. During a chemical peel, specially formulated chemicals are applied to the skin causing a deep exfoliation. The fresh new skin underneath is revealed as the skin peels and flakes away. Chemical peels improve the texture and tone of the skin while also reducing the appearance of fine lines.
What skin concerns do chemical peels treat?
Chemical treatments effectively aid in the reduction of fine lines and hyperpigmentation, improve skin texture and clarity, and treat acne. Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands and are usually done in a series or for maintenance. A consultation with one of our medical estheticians at Sonoma Skin Works can help determine which peel is right for your skin type.
Are there different kinds of chemical peels?
There are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. A superficial peel is best when treating mild skin discoloration and rough spots. The medium peel is effective in improving the look of wrinkles, moderate skin discoloration, age spots, and freckles. A deep peel is best used for moderate to deep lines, shallow scars, dark freckles, and more intense age spots. Chemical peels also vary by the kind of chemical used on the skin. Your medical esthetician will work with you to identify your skin concerns and make a recommendation on the best peel to give you the desired results. The different intensities of chemical peel will each require different levels of aftercare. With deeper peels, you may need to use special cleansers and moisturizers during the healing period. With all chemical peels, you should take care to avoid the sun in the days directly following treatment and ensure that a broad spectrum sunblock with a high SPF is part of your everyday skincare regimen.
