What if you could reverse the aging process and go back to your skin the way it was a decade ago? That’s exactly what a chemical peel is for. A chemical peel removes the top layers of your skin, leaving fresh, smooth skin underneath. This treatment can help to improve to signs of aging, uneven skin tone, and even scarring.
A peel uses medical chemicals to gradually eliminate the top layers of your skin, boosting the production of new skin cells.
You may not be able to stop time, but a chemical peel can halt aging on your face.
After a Houston chemical peel appointment, you can expect to see: Smoother skin — Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles — Smoothing of scars — Elimination of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and age spots — Even skin tone — Boosted collagen production
When you come in for a chemical peel, we’ll first cleanse and degrease your face to make sure there is no makeup or skincare that might interfere with the treatment. We’ll also cover your eyes to protect them. Then, we use a cotton applicator to apply the chemical peel to your face. Our peel contains a carefully calibrated combination or acids, anti-oxidants, and vitamin C. Over the next week, the top layer of your skin will peel away, and new skin will appear underneath. You’ll need to give your skin time to recover. Within about two weeks, your skin will be healed and look beautifully smooth and bright.
It’s normal for your skin to be red and sensitive for 1-2 weeks after the treatment. Remember, the way a chemical peel works is by shedding the top layer or layers of your skin. This means your skin has to go through a peeling and healing process. As your skin recovers, it might also feel slightly red or tight. In rare cases, your skin may look a couple of shades lighter or darker. This typically goes away as your skin heals.
A light chemical peel is a surface-level treatment that removes the top layer of skin. It’s ideal to treat uneven or dull skin tone, fine lines, and dryness. It will take about 5-7 days for your skin to heal. A medium chemical peel penetrates through the outer layer of skin to the middle layer, the dermis. It’s a stronger treatment that works well for treating deeper wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. It will take about 7-14 days for your skin to fully heal.
This will depend on the level of chemical peel you’re receiving. A light chemical peel is fairly painless.
We will provide you with aftercare instructions and aftercare kit to soothe and moisturize your skin. You also need to stay out of the sun while your skin heals. In the long term, we recommend wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF.
We recommend waiting until you are completely done with peeling and your skin is healed. Many of our clients prefer to schedule a chemical peel when they know they can stay home for 1-2 weeks to give their skin time to recover.CHEMICAL PEEL INSTRUCTIONS
