Nothing is as good as a beautiful face. There are many procedures that aim at making sure you have an amazing face and a chemical peel treatment is one of them. Here are skin care tips to make sure the procedure is a complete success.

A chemical peel is a treatment which involves the use of an acid solution to eliminate the outer skin layers that are damaged. Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), phenol or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) are used by our aesthetician at Jefferson Facial Plastics to perform the procedure. Chemical peels can be used on almost all types of skins and is a great way to ensure your face maintains a youthful glow.

Benefits of chemical peel treatments

The procedure enhances and also smoothens your skin texture. A chemical peel treatment is very effective when it comes to wrinkles, facial blemishes and uneven skin pigmentation. When the outer layer that comprises of dead skin is removed, a new layer is revealed. The new facial skin layer has an improved tone, a smooth texture and a glow, giving you a youthful appearance. Chemical peel treatments are among the most popular cosmetic treatments that have been used for decades to achieve skin that is more beautiful. It is very popular since it offers almost immediate results and the procedure is done right here at Jefferson Facial Plastics in Philadelphia.

One of the great benefits of a chemical peel is that there is virtually no downtime after the treatment. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after a chemical peel, so we instruct our clients to make sure they wear plenty of sunscreen when they’re outside for the first couple of days after the chemical peel. Our aesthetician will provide you with post-treatment instructions on the best way to care for your skin.

For the best results, Jefferson Facial Plastics recommends clients get a chemical peel treatment every four to six weeks. This will keep the skin smooth, clear and with a nice even tone that will make you look young and healthy. Our aesthetician will also recommend products to use at home to complement the chemical peel to keep your skin looking great.

Is A Chemical Peel Painful?

No. Most clients describe it as a slight tingling and/or itchy sensation during the treatment. After the acid is neutralized there should be no discomfort. Your skin will feel (and look!) great afterwards. If you have any concerns about the chemical peel, talk to our aesthetician before the treatment begins. She will examine your facial skin first so that the right chemicals are used.
