24 Apr Facial Peels Customized for You
Just like Botox, sometimes chemicals peels get a bad wrap on TV and movies because they can be a great punch line. Refined Dermatology is happy to spend time with clients to explain the reality of chemicals peels, what to expect, and how to achieve the results you want without having to go overboard (you won’t have to wear a beekeeper hat to hide your face after a chemical peel like on Sex and the City).
It’s no surprise that sometimes cosmetic procedures are wildly misrepresented for entertainment. However, that can scare clients away from learning about the benefits and real recovery processes of such treatments. Chemicals peels come in a wide variety of strengths and use a myriad of ingredients. Some chemical peels are very mild, and you can easily return to work or your daily tasks after treatment. Others are more aggressive and should be planned around special events. No chemical peel should keep you housebound, although you will need to be extra vigilant about sunscreen for a couple of weeks post-treatment.
Chemical peels got their name from the fact that chemicals are used—rather than another type of product—to expertly remove the top layers of skin. When this happens, whether from a peel, exfoliation, or microdermabrasion, it simultaneously starts the production of more collagen while revealing younger-looking skin below the surface.
The skin is constantly shedding its top layers and creating collagen. However, collagen production slows down as we age. We also don’t always shed that dull, sun-damaged, lined top layer of skin as evenly and quickly as we’d like. A chemical peel speeds up both processes in a controlled environment. You are given clear after-care instructions to optimize your results.
