Chemical Peels

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to exfoliate the skin, leading to the removal of dead skin cells and the regeneration of new skin cells. This process can improve the skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and other skin imperfections. They can also help to stimulate collagen production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

What types of chemical peels are there?

PM Aesthetics offers a range of chemical peels to suit different skin types and concerns. These include superficial peels, which are gentle and require little downtime, as well as medium and deep peels, which are more intensive and may require some recovery time.

Do chemical peels hurt?

Most patients experience a mild tingling or burning sensation during the peel, which subsides once the peel is neutralized. After the treatment, you may experience some redness and peeling, but this is temporary and should resolve within a few days to a week.

How long do chemical peels take?

The treatment itself typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the type of peel being performed. However, you may need to allow additional time for consultation and preparation.

How many chemical peel treatment do you need?

The number of treatments required will depend on your skin type, the condition being treated, and the desired results. In general, a series of peels is recommended for optimal results, spaced a few weeks apart.

Is there downtime after a chemical peel?

The downtime after a chemical peel will vary depending on the type and strength of the peel. Superficial peels typically have minimal downtime, while medium and deep peels may require several days to a week of recovery time.

How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel, it's important to follow your provider's instructions for post-treatment care. This may include using gentle cleansers and moisturizers, avoiding sun exposure, and avoiding harsh skincare products.

Are chemical peels safe for all skin types?

Chemical peels are generally safe for most skin types, but they may not be suitable for everyone. Your provider will assess your skin and medical history to determine if a chemical peel is right for you.
