Chemical Peel in Oklahoma City
Chemical peels are treatments that improve skin tone and texture by removing the damaged outer skin layers. The dead, dull surface cells are peeled away, revealing brighter and more youthful skin.
This short treatment can have long-lasting results, improving the skin on your face, neck and chest.
When to Undergo a Chemical Peel in Oklahoma City
With a chemical peel, you can treat a wide range of skin problems. Because chemical peels are available in light or deep variations, you can also customize the treatment for different patients.
Chemical peels are often used to treat:
- Fine lines
- Blotchy complexion
- Rough skin texture
- Some visible scars
People of all ages can experience the benefits of a chemical peel. The younger patient may get a peel to reduce the appearance of acne, while mature patients do it for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does it work?
The treatment is quite simple and can often be done in just 15 minutes. First, your skin is cleansed. Next, the chemical peel solution is evenly applied to your facial skin. For some patients, the solution is applied to the neck and chest as well. The chemical solution penetrates for a short time before it is removed. Some patients may require more multiple treatments to reduce certain skin problems.
How will my skin feel after a chemical peel?
Just as the name implies, your skin will begin to peel somewhat following your treatment. The dead, dull skin cells on the surface are removed. Your body's natural healing process allows fresh new skin to emerge.
For a light chemical peel, this flaking should be minimal and you will not need to apply an ointment. You should, however, continue to apply a daily SPF to protect your skin.
What is recovery like after a deep chemical peel?
After a deep peel, your skin will begin to shed its dull outer layers in the days that follow treatment. Some redness, swelling and scabbing should be expected with the deep peel. You will be advised to apply ointment and keep your skin protected from the sun.
