Superficial Chemical peels contribute to radiant complexions
Would you like to have healthy skin with fewer imperfections and a youthful glow? The aesthetics team at Orchard Park Dermatology in Orchard Park, NY delivers those results using chemical peels customized to the patients’ needs.
How skin peeling works
Skin is comprised of multiple strata. As new cells form in deep layers, damaged and dead cells make their way to the surface. Without effective exfoliation, they clog pores and give the complexion a dull, tired look. A face peel is a carefully controlled exfoliation using chemical agents rather than abrasion to loosen and lift old cells away.
Skin is cleansed and the peel solution is applied. The formulation is left on the skin for a calculated period to achieve optimal results. Throughout treatment, your comfort is ensured with topical numbing (if necessary) or a cooling device. Skin is cleansed again and protected with a pampering moisturizer.
There may be some residual tingling or pinkness. Then, within a few days, skin begins to flake lightly, or has more significant peeling – depending on the strength of the peel. Shedding can last for up to a week, as fresh new skin emerges. You may continue your normal skin care routine and wear makeup. However, it is very important to apply high-quality daily sun protection during and after healing to maintain beautiful results.
You see a noticeable difference after just one chemical peel, and maximum improvement with a series of three to six treatments. Thereafter, skin quality can be maintained with a few peels during the year.
