One of the first places that many San Francisco residents hear about a chemical peel is on television. Usually, peels are misrepresented in the media. Some view this as a treatment that is too harsh, and others are afraid that it is going to damage their skin. The truth is that modern peels are drastically different than what was used years ago.
What is a Chemical Peel?
The Mayo Clinic defines a chemical peel as a skin resurfacing treatment. During this treatment, a chemical solution is put on the outer layer of the skin. This leads to exfoliation. The skin that grows back after the chemical peel should be smoother and younger-looking.
One of the reasons why many turn to this treatment is because they are dealing with discoloration and scars on their face. This is especially true of individuals who have skin that is prone to hyperpigmentation.
Some of the results of this treatment are going to be seen immediately once the treatment is done. In the days and weeks that follow the treatment, you’re going to notice that your skin is getting smoother, it is taking on a nice glow, and it looks healthy. Individuals who are battling with pigmentation issues are going to be happy as their skin starts to even out.
What to Expect During the Treatment
People who have had this treatment performed are surprised at how easy and uneventful the treatment process is. It takes place in the comfort of our office, including the consultation.
During the actual treatment, we are going to prep your skin and then apply the chemical peel solution. The strength of the solution, the types of chemicals used, and the length of time the solution is on your face will vary, depending on your skin’s health and the results you are trying to achieve.
