Medical grade chemical peels are powerful facial exfoliants that work to improve the skins tone and texture. There are many types of chemical peels, from light, superficial ones, to deep and rejuvenating medical grade peels. Chemical peels are one of the most popular treatments for facial skin and can produce profound results.
What is a Medical Grade Chemical Peel?
A medical grade chemical peel is a facial exfoliant used to improve skin tone and texture. It is also a clinical resurfacing procedure that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, diminishes acne, improves uneven pigment distribution and enhances moisture retention. The primary function of chemical peels is to remove the dead cells on the surface of the skin. The results reveal smoother, healthier skin by exfoliating blocked pores and dull skin.
Chemical peels are one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments available. They can be performed alone to effectively treat a number of complexion concerns, such as pigmentation irregularities, roughness, freckles, acne, minor wrinkles and lines, photo-damage and dullness. Alternatively, it can be performed in conjunction with another cosmetic skin treatment, such as hydra facials and fillers, to achieve a well-rounded complexion rejuvenation.
The intensity of the chemical peel, from light to deep, is determined by the condition being treated and the patient’s skin type. The clinician will go over what type of chemical peel will work best for you during the consultative process prior to treatment. You should also express any medical conditions you may have or medications you may be taking and also to express your goals of the treatment. This will assist you in making the proper selection.
What kind of chemical peels do dermatologists use?
At Maki Wellness & Medical Spa we offer custom, medical grade chemical peels for patients seeking to even out their facial complexion and texture by gently exfoliating the top layer of dermis. The chemical peel treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. The strength of the chemical peel used during the treatment depends on the skin type of the patient and also their skin care concerns. Maki Wellness & offers light, medium, and strong chemical peels, providing an effective skin care solution for every skin type.
How long do the results last from Medical Grade Chemical Peels?
The duration of the results of chemical peels depends on what type is being used. Light or superficial chemical peels typically last around one to two months. These last the shortest as they do not penetrate as deeply. Medium chemical peels generally last around two to six months, lasting longer than light peels as they work deeper within the skin, correcting more problems. Deep treatments are the most intense of chemical peels, and since they penetrate so deeply into the dermis, results can last for several years. In order to prolong the results of a chemical peel, it is important to be vigilant about sun protection after any peel treatment. This can be achieved by applying sunscreen, wearing a sunhat, or staying indoors.
