Chemical peels are an excellent way to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including aging skin, actinic keratosis (scaly or crusty patches), solar elastosis (sun-damaged skin), pigmentation changes, solar lentigos (age spots), hyperpigmentation (dark patches), melasma, acne, acne scarring, and sebaceous hyperplasia.
How It Works
FreshSkin offers a wide variety of effective chemical peels, customized to treat your specific skin condition and skin type. In each case, the ideal formulation is applied and absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin where it acts upon abnormal pigment, blood vessels or sebaceous glands. The result is uniform and enhanced absorption, less surface trauma, faster surface recovery and enhanced collagen stimulation.
What to Expect
To begin, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and treated to remove any excess oils. One or more exfoliating agents will be applied to the skin and you may feel some temporary surface tingling. After a brief wait, the skin is once again cleansed and a soothing protectant applied.
Depending on the peeling agent used, you may be asked to keep the area free of water for up to twelve hours. Over the next few days, you may experience redness and surface scaling (flaking of exfoliated skin). This reaction, if it occurs, is normal and typically ends within 3-14 days.
Most peels should be repeated at 2-week intervals until the desired clinical effect is achieved, and then monthly. While improvement is often seen with a single peel, several treatments are recommended for optimal results.
