Our chemical peels can address a variety of skin conditions by revealing fresh new skin cells. Chemical peels are non-invasive cosmetic treatments used to improve the aesthetics and feel of the skin. Forever 30 offers several types of chemical peels for Prosper patients.
Which Conditions Can Chemical Peels Treat?
Peels can treat a number of skin issues, including the following:
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Liver spots, age spots, and freckling
- Rough patches
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone or redness
- Wrinkles/fine lines
The main options for treatment areas are the face, hands, and neck.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
Chemical peels are composed of various acidic chemicals that penetrate into the skin layers, loosening damaged and dead skin cells. This reveals healthy skin cells that do not have imperfections or damage. The production of collagen is also stimulated, ensuring that the new skin is strong and smooth.
VI Peel is a chemical peel trademarked by Vitality Institute Medical Products. It is a medium-depth chemical peel that can reach down to the dermis. It not only exfoliates the skin but also stimulates the production of new proteins. The conditions it can treat are signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles), rough texture, and pigmentary issues like sun spots and discoloration.
There are 3 popular SkinMedica chemical peels: The Illuminize Peel, the Rejuvenize Peel, and the Vitalize Peel.
Illuminize Peel: Perfect for treating mild skin imperfections. The Illuminize Peel makes the skin more vibrant and radiant, and it creates a more uniform complexion. It requires only minimal downtime after treatment.
Rejuvenize Peel: Used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. The Rejuvenize Peel is ideal for patients with moderate to severe skin imperfections. It can also treat skin unevenness, acne scars, and pigmentation issues. Although significant results will be apparent after just 1 treatment session, ideal results can be achieved after 3 to 6 sessions.
Vitalize Peel: An excellent choice for patients with mild to moderate skin imperfections. The Vitalize Peel can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and skin roughness after 1 session. However, 3 to 6 peel sessions are still recommended for best results. Patients may experience a temporary yellowish tinge for 2 to 3 hours after the treatment session.
Ideal Candidates for Chemical Peels
Healthy candidates who do not want invasive cosmetic treatments for their skin issues are ideal candidates for chemical peels. The best candidates have realistic expectations and do not have serious skin conditions like skin cancer. Patients with lighter skin tones and patients who have not received acne treatments within the last year are good candidates.
Your consultation will be handled by one of our skilled skincare experts. They will carefully examine your skin to better understand the specific issues that you would like to address. Your medical history will also be reviewed.
Next, the skincare expert will go over our peels and recommend an ideal option for you. The peel process will be discussed in great detail, from the preparation stage all the way through aftercare. Your peel session will then be scheduled.
Your Treatment Session
Depending on the treatment plan, the peel session can last from a few minutes up to an hour or longer. The treatment areas will be cleansed before applying the chemical peel. A brush, cotton ball, gauze, or sponge may be used to apply the peel.
Once the chosen peel has had time to permeate through the skin layers, either a neutralizing solution will be applied or the treatment area will be washed to remove the chemical peel.
After Your Peel Session
The patient can go home after the peel session. Minor redness, tightness, irritation, or swelling may be experienced for a few days. Symptoms may vary depending on the strength of the chosen chemical peel and may require some social downtime/recovery time.
Aftercare instructions will be provided, including how to deal with these after-session symptoms. Once the peeling process begins, patience will be vital. It will be important to avoid direct sunlight and to wear a proper sunscreen. An effective moisturizer will also be necessary.
Chemical Peel Treatment Cost
The price of a peel session will depend on the treatment areas and the chosen chemical peel. The overall cost will be impacted by the number of sessions needed to achieve ideal results.
