Call the office to schedule an appointment or use the online booking feature today.
The team at Saba Med Spa performs chemical peels by applying a medical-grade chemical solution to your face's surface. Several applications may be used and left to remain on for several minutes. Once the chemical solution is removed, the old skin will slough off over the coming days.
During the peeling phase, your skin will become rough and dry. The old skin will begin to crack and fall away as the new skin underneath starts to show through.
As the outer layer of skin peels away, the fresh skin may look shiny and pink. This skin will also look soft, tender, and sensitive to touch. It may feel as if the skin has been sunburnt.
Common side effects of chemical peels include irritation or a reaction to the chemical solution. The team at Saba Med Spa takes a complete medical history and will use a milder solution if it's your first peel to prevent issues.
The entire area where the chemical was applied will be tender to the touch. The face's surface may look rough and chapped until the old skin slips away. The sensitivity to the touch after the new skin has been exposed usually lasts only a day or so.
Most discomfort associated with the procedure will completely disappear within a few days. You will need to wear sunscreen religiously after your treatment as the new skin will be susceptible to burning.
The results of a chemical peel last between one and three months, depending on the strength of the chemical peel and the time it stayed on your skin.
Receiving a chemical peel every month for four to six months can help clear away many different types of blemishes like sun spots or light wrinkles, but they won't permanently remove them. Complimentary treatments may be used depending upon your expectations.
