Chemical Peels

Chemical peels

Chemical peels at Elite Medicine Clinics DFW are a way to exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin. A chemical peel is a chemical solution that an aesthetician applies to your skin – usually your face, neck, and/or hands. The solution is left on for a few moments and then removed. The result initially may be red or sunburnt looking skin that then exfoliates and leaves the skin underneath smoother and less wrinkled.

After you’ve had a consultation, our physicians and aestheticians will work with you to decide the best chemical peel process for your skin. There are three general types of chemical peels to choose from.

For a mild chemical peel we use a mild acid solution – such as alpha-hydroxy acid. We apply it to your skin and allow it to gently exfoliate. A mild peel can be expected to refresh your skin’s appearance as well as improve mild discoloration and rough skin.

For a medium peel, you can expect a chemical such as glycolic or trichloroacetic acid. As we apply it, it penetrates the outer and middle skin layers to remove damaged skin cells. You can expect the result to be smoother skin, with improvement in age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines.

If a deep peel is chosen, you can expect a chemical such as tricholoracetic or phenol acid to deeply penetrate the outer and middle skin layers. You can expect a dramatic improvement in your skin’s condition and fewer lines, age spots, and freckles. A deep peel can only be done on your skin once.

The others, mild and medium, can be repeated.

Chemicals peels are not painful, but there can be some stinging associated with them. You can expect redness and skin peeling in the days after a peel. Your aesthetics team at Elite Medical Clinics DFW is aware of these side effects and will make sure that you have creams and gels to help reduce and soothe the side effects.
