Chemical Peel Tallahassee
A chemical solution applied to the face which removes surface layer skin damage like sun spots, fine wrinkles and blemishes is called a chemical peel. The main ingredients in chemical peels may include alphahydrozy acids (AHA), phenol or trichloroacetic acids (TCA), though the exact formula is catered stronger or weaker to meet each patient’s individual needs. As with all procedures, there are risks and potential side effects. Though rare, infection or scarring is possible. Chemical peels may cause stinging, redness, crusting or irritation which generally subsides as your skin adjusts to the treatment.
It’s important to have a trained physician with experience in chemical peel procedures to administer your treatment. Chemical peels are generally performed in your plastic surgeon’s office or outpatient surgical center, unless they are being done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. Depending on the type of peel and the amount of skin being treated, the procedure may take anywhere from 10 minutes for an AHA peel or two hours for a full-face phenol peel.
As the chemical takes its effect, your new layer of skin will be very sensitive and it’s important to keep it safe from the sun. AHA peels wont prevent you from getting back to work and regular activities straight away. TCA peels will take about a week to ten days to return to work and activities, while phenol peels may take up to two weeks to return to work, activities and makeup. Ask your plastic surgeon about camouflage cosmetics for makeup tips while your skin heals.
Chemical peels can offer an improved skin texture and a more youthful and healthy appearance, though chemical peels do have their limitations. Talking to your plastic surgeon is the best way to determine if a chemical peel may be right for you.
