The beginning of a new year is a special time of hope and redemption. It’s a time where we address any of the regrets we had in the past year and try to grow from them. As the years pass, some of these regrets might become related to your appearance. The inevitability of wrinkles, age spots, and other skin imperfections as you age does little to curb the self-consciousness that you can feel, so why not start off the new year with a new focus – your skin.
At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, we love to help people feel more confident in themselves and their skin — that’s why we offer chemical peels. Chemical peels are an effective, safe way to improve the overall quality of your skin. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how to look your best for 2016.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a non-invasive method of improving the appearance of skin on the face, neck, hands, and chest. The name of this procedure explains how it is carried out. A chemical solution is first put on the skin. This solution exfoliates the skin and eventually causes it to peel off, revealing a rejuvenated, younger looking layer underneath.
Why a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are one of the most effective ways to breathe new life into the appearance of your skin without needing to undergo an invasive treatment. The recovery time is relatively short on light or medium peels. Side effects following treatment are typically mild, with most patients reporting no major adverse reactions.
What are the Cosmetic Benefits of a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel leaves your skin looking refreshed, rejuvenated, and new. The overall texture, appearance, and quality of the skin is improved. Specifically, it can:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and age spots
- Balance your skin tone
- Brighten your complexion
- Smoothen the feel of your skin
- Improve rough skin
Solving all of these aesthetic problems at once leaves your skin with a radiant, youthful glow.
What Should I Expect During my First Treatment?
Typically, a chemical peel treatment begins with a skin cleansing. Depending upon the intensity of the chemical peel that you’re undergoing, you may or may not need anesthesia to numb the treatment area. Once this pre-treatment preparation is complete, the chemical peel solution is applied. Upon its removal, your skin can be treated with creams, lotions, and cold compresses to ease any discomfort.
If you’re interested in setting the tone for a successful year, a chemical peel could be just what you’re looking for. Contact Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center today to schedule your initial consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
