Many people choose to have a chemical peel done to their face to rejuvenate their appearance. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the face (and sometimes neck area) and allowed to soak into the skin. After an allotted amount of time, the solution is wiped off of the face. There are different levels of chemical peels, and each level uses a different based chemical solution. The desired results typically help to determine how deeply a chemical peel needs to penetrate into the skin.
Dr. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC understands the structure of the skin and how a chemical peel can help slough off dead or damaged cells to reveal a brighter, more youthful appearance. During consultation, the experts at Kalos can help you determine which peel option is the best for your skin. Because chemical peels “wound” the skin in order for new skin growth to appear, not all chemical levels are appropriate for every patient. By thoroughly examining the skin, our skin experts will be able to recommend the best peel option for you.
After a chemical peel the skin that has been treated will begin to peel or flake off. This is exactly what you want to happen. The old skin that you were not happy with is now being replaced with fresh, more youthful skin. Many patients see results after just one treatment, but most patients see the best results after a series of peels. Kalos is your trusted source for facial chemical peels.
