What Is A Chemical Peel?

If you’re suffering from fine lines, skin discoloration, enlarged pores and other imperfections on your skin, consider having a chemical peel. One of the most popular skin treatments in the country, including in West Palm Beach chemical peels, also known as dermapeeling or chemexfoliation, uses an acid solution to remove the outer layer of the skin, effectively ridding it of wrinkles and light scarring. At Estetica Institute of the Palm Beaches, we are experienced in administering chemical peels to all of our patients in the South Florida area, including Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Tequesta. Call today to schedule your initial consultation and learn more about the procedure, including average chemical peel prices.

How Are Chemical Peels Performed?

During the procedure with Chemical Peels West Palm Beach patients' skin will be thoroughly cleansed before a trained technician paints the acid solution onto their face, exfoliating it and ridding it of the outer layer. You can choose between three levels of peels, including the superficial peel, the medium-depth peel and the deep chemical peel.

Depending on which level you choose, the procedure with Chemical Peels can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Also, lighter peels do not require any anesthesia, but the deeper peels do. The solution not only works to rid your skin of the dead outer layer, but also to stimulate new skin cell growth through the healing process.

Am I Good Candidate For A Chemical Peel?

The best chemical peel candidates are those suffering with the following problems:

  • Fine lines
  • Light sun damage or freckling
  • Hyperpigmentation or age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Slight scarring (due to acne, etc.)
  • Scaly patches and rough skin

While chemical peels work best on the face, they are also suitable for other areas on the body. Arms, legs, neck, chest and hands can all be enhanced though chemical peels. Chemical peels are not for everyone, though. If you are of Afro-Caribbean or Asian decent, if you have red hair and pale, freckled skin, if you have facial warts or abnormal pigmentation, or if you have a history of skin scarring, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. Check with your doctor before making any final decisions.

What happens after the Chemical Peel procedure? What is the recovery process?

Your recovery following this procedure will depend on the level of chemical peel you’ve chosen. Lighter peels may produce some redness and skin peeling, while deeper peels may leave you with blisters, scabs, swelling and extensive peeling. We will advise you to stay out of the sun for at least two weeks. And as well, to wear an SPF of 15 or higher when going outside. You should also avoid wearing makeup and follow a specific skincare regimen outlined by your doctor. We may also prescribe you some ointments, creams or oral steroids to take following your peel. Patients can expect a recovery time of about two weeks before their face is healed enough to go out in public confidently.

What Are The Typical Results Of Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a great way to improve the appearance of fine lines, age spots, light sun damage and other imperfections. Patients are thrilled with their new, refreshed, nearly flawless skin. However, since new lines and spots may appear over time, you may need to continue with a maintenance program to achieve the best results. If you’d like to see results up-close-and-personal, browse through some chemical peel before and after photos. These should give you a better idea of the results you can realistically expect.
