Medical-grade chemical peels are more popular than ever, and this treatment might be just what you need to finally achieve your cosmetic goals. With these amazing products, our team can help you eradicate blemishes such as liver spots, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles. If you are no longer happy with your appearance because of your aging skin, then you might be the perfect candidate for chemical peels.
When we are younger, our bodies produce many different proteins that keep our skin firm and toned. Even when damage occurs, proteins such as collagen and elastin will nourish and protect the outer layers of the epidermis. Unfortunately, there may come a point when your body’s natural healing response is no longer as effective.
Sun damage, environmental toxins, and harsh beauty products will slowly begin to damage your skin over the years. Without those key proteins, you might develop a wide variety of age-related blemishes including fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and unusual discoloration. The primary goal of chemical peels is to trigger your body’s natural healing response so that your skin once again nourishes itself.
The Science Behind Chemical Peels
There are many different types of chemical peels, but most of these procedures follow the same basic principles. A specially designed solution is placed on top of the skin to gently remove the outer layer of the epidermis. After the outer layer is removed, your body is immediately going to flood the area with nutrients that revitalize the underlying soft tissue. Within a few weeks of your treatments, your skin will slowly become healthier, softer and smoother.
Your Treatment Options
All our patients have slightly different needs, which is why we suggest scheduling an initial consultation to learn more about this procedure. Many different products can be used during these treatments, and each one has its own pros and cons. For deeper blemishes, we might use a stronger chemical or let the product sit on the patient’s skin for a longer period of time. Minor blemishes such as fine lines and light freckles can typically be treated with a mild product.
A Look at Your First Set of Appointments
Most of our patients benefit from having at least five or six treatment sessions carried out, which are generally scheduled a couple weeks apart. The most common side effects include redness and inflammation, but these are common and typically fade quickly. You should begin to see improvements to your skin within a few weeks of your first treatment, and the results will continue to improve for up to a year.
We believe that all our patients deserve to have smooth, toned and youthful skin. That is why we are proud to offer safe and effective treatments such as medical-grade chemical peels at My Dermal Solutions in Texarkana.
