One of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate the skin, chemical peels can also effectively treat some types of chronic skin conditions without the use of harsh abrasives or inactive ingredients that do not directly benefit the skin. At Empowerment Med, we offer a variety of chemical peels depending on your individual skincare needs.
Empowerment Med serves the College Station and Bryan areas in Texas. Contact us today to find out how chemical peels can revitalize your aging or damaged skin with minimal to no disruption to your downtime.
What are Chemical Peels?
The chemical peel process is typically comfortable for the patient and involves the application of medicated solution to the face in either a few or several layers, depending on the amount of correction needed. The solution is left on the face for a specified amount of time to absorb into the skin, and is then neutralized as the face is cleansed.
Over a matter of days, the face begins a peeling process that is more gentle with lighter peels but can be more extensive with deeper peels, revealing fresh, new skin while also reducing visible signs of aging and clearing skin imperfections.
What Do Chemical Peels Treat?
This non-invasive skin rejuvenation solution can treat a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines around the eyes, nose and mouth
- Signs of aging
- Mild scarring
- Certain types of acne
- Age spots
- Dark spots
- Uneven texture and tone
What Types of Chemical Peels are There?
Chemical peels typically come in three different varieties – light, medium, and deep. The type of peel that is right for you depends on the level of correction that you need:
- Light peels are ideal for light exfoliation and for correcting superficial concerns
- Medium peels penetrate a little deeper below the skin surface to target more pronounced visible signs of aging and some skin conditions such as acne.
- Deeper peels are the strongest type and are used to target the most severe types of skin conditions. Our medical team will explain what this treatment process entails.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
Depending on what type of peel you receive, a small recovery period may be necessary. Light peels typically only results in a few days of peeling and slight flushing of the skin. Medium peels may result in slightly more redness and swelling and can take a few weeks to subside, while deeper peels may require more extensive healing time. Our medical team will let you know when you can return to your normal activities.
