Chemical Peels Q & A
During a chemical peel, a formulated solution is applied to the surface of your skin. This causes your skin to exfoliate, a process during which the top layer sloughs off and peels away.This reveals the newer skin cells under the surface. Because these skin cells haven’t been exposed to the sun, pollutants, or other sources of damage, uncovering them gives your skin a younger, more even appearance.
Specifically, you can use chemical peels to address:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scars, including acne scars
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone or texture
A peel can do a lot for your skin, but it’s important to know that many peels come with downtime, a span of about a week during which your skin actively peels.
It depends on your skin goals and your upcoming schedule. If you want to gradually improve your skin without having to worry about any downtime, the Obagi Blue Peel is a great option for you. If you’re looking for a dramatic transformation, a deeper peel like a TCA peel may be a better fit.Our specialists can help you select the right chemical peel for your ideal results.
