Chemical peels are all the rage right now in terms of facial beauty techniques, and this very simple form of plastic surgery is nothing to be afraid of. At Accent on You our board certified plastic surgeon can help you to get truly beautiful skin through the benefits offered by a chemical peel, and the only thing you need to worry over is just how you will best showcase your new look after all is said and done!

What Is A Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a simple process that uses collagen stimulation in order to free the skin of blemish marks, sun damage, dehydration, and collagen depletion. For a simpler take on the chemical peel, we at Accent on You also offer a micro peel that aids with skin exfoliation in order to leave you with a brighter and more even complexion.

How Does A Chemical Peel Work?

The first step in getting a chemical peel is the consultation, and this is where our Accent on You professionals will determine which areas are in most need of the chemical peel process. Often, this will be within the T-zone or other areas susceptible to blemish or sun damage, and you will be able to set up the appointment for your peel.

During your peel appointment, the area or areas will be thoroughly cleansed and prepared for the peel, and the peel will then be applied to the regions with a clean and soft pad. The chemicals associated with the peel may create a warming sensation that is not often uncomfortable, but in order to make this a pleasant process, a nurse will often provide a high powered Zimmer cooler to keep you comfortable and relaxed.

A nurse will then neutralize the chemical peel after it has been sitting on the skin, and apply vitamins as well as a sunscreen to keep the skin nurtured and safe. Some redness, dryness, and flaking can then be expected for around the next 24 to 48 hours, and it is recommended that only mild cleansers, moisturizers, and products be used during this time to avoid any further skin irritation.
