Our skin is exposed to many environmental elements, including the sun, on a daily basis. Add the natural aging process to the mix, and you are bound to develop wrinkled, hyper-pigmented, and leathery skin over time. If you are experiencing signs of premature skin aging, and have not had success with creams and serums, chemical peels may be what you are looking for.
Who Can Benefit from a Chemical Peel?
Those who wish to correct fine lines, mild scars, age spots, freckles, and melasma can benefit from a chemical peel. Men and women who are light skinned with light hair can best benefit from a chemical peel. Darker skin tones can see effective results, but are at a higher risk for uneven skin tone. Also, those with sagging, bulging, or severely wrinkled skin should not receive a chemical peel.
During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. This causes the outermost layer of dull and dead skin cells to peel away to reveal a smoother, younger-looking complexion. During a peel, you may experience a temporary burning sensation. While lighter peels require little downtime, deeper peels are associated with a longer healing time. Any discomfort after a deeper peel can be controlled with pain medication.
Following a peel, patients will experience peeling, and the reveal of a radiant, even complexion! If you are interested in rejuvenating your skin for a refreshed appearance, contact our office in the Cleveland area today to schedule your consultation.
