Chemical Peels Q & A
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are like face masks but more aggressive and with much more drastic results. Chemical peels reverse signs of aging by removing the uppermost, aged, and weathered layer of skin on your face. In doing so, scars, blemishes, and wrinkles are diminished and you’re left with a youthful glow.
Many women opt to get chemical peels at least a week before a red carpet-worthy evening since a fresh face makes for the perfect clean canvas for glam makeup. However, you can choose to get a chemical peel if you simply feel like you need a refreshing update to your skin.
What can a chemical peel do for my face?
Chemical peels come with many benefits and can correct many types of imperfections that develop with time. They can:
- Reduce brown spots and discoloration
- Repair sun damage
- Diminish acne and acne scars
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the size of your pores
In essence, a chemical peel makes your skin appear younger. The treatment requires little preparation, so you can get one on a whim if you feel like you need it. If gorgeous skin is your end goal, then a chemical peel is a great option for you.
What should I expect during my chemical peel appointment?
Genesis Medical offers Vitality Institute Aesthetics peels (VI Peel). They are gentle on all types of skin. Your provider will choose the strength of peel to give you based on your skin sensitivity and the severity of your needs with the treatment. Then, your face will be cleaned to minimize the amount of oil that remains.
Once your face is thoroughly wiped, your provider applies the VI Peel solution. You might feel tingling as it is applied, but most patients say that it isn’t painful or particularly uncomfortable. The appointment lasts about 30 minutes, and your provider sends you home with care instructions to maximize your results. You’ll start peeling a couple of days later, and you’ll soon notice beautiful, rejuvenated skin.
Are chemical peels dangerous?
The VI Peel is safe and comes with very little risk of complications. One of the most common risks is an uneven skin tone following the peel, but you can take extra steps to prevent this by following the aftercare instructions closely. If you have a darker skin tone, you may be at a higher risk of seeing a darker or uneven tone after your peel. If you have concerns about this, the Genesis Medical team can help you decide if a chemical peel is your best option or help you to explore others.
If you long for refreshed, unblemished skin, a chemical peel can help you achieve it even at an advanced age. To schedule your chemical peel, call or schedule an appointment online at Genesis Medical today.
