To achieve almost immediate results and effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions, the best cosmetic option may be a chemical peel. Our medi-spa offers a number of chemical peel treatments for patients who suffer from conditions such as:
- damaged skin due to aging
- sun exposure
- uneven pigmentation
A chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that uses a chemical solution to eliminate the outer skin layers, encouraging new cell growth and the production of clearer, more youthful-looking skin. There are basically three different levels of chemical peel treatments, designed to treat a range of skin damage, from minimal imperfections to deeper, more noticeable skin conditions. Our skin care specialist will go over the types of chemical peels available at our office and discuss which one might be best for your treatment.
Chemical peels are typically performed on the face; however, they can also treat the arms, hands, neck, and chest.
Depending on the type of chemical peel you undergo, the procedure generally only takes about 15 minutes to perform. However, some treatments can last up to an hour or more if larger areas are being treated. During the procedure, patients feel a brief burning sensation and may experience some reddening or swelling afterward. The length of recovery time is dependent on how many areas of the skin are being treated, and whether you are receiving one of the lighter or deeper types of chemical peel. Some patients may be able to return to their normal routines within a day, for others it may take several days.
At your initial consultation, our skin care specialist will discuss the risks and benefits of treatment, go over the procedure, take a thorough medical history, and determine the best type of chemical peel for you. Our staff at Annapolis Aesthetic Surgery, Inc. will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
