VI Peel® Chemical Peel In Gainesville, FL
Chemical peels can improve and smooth out the texture of facial skin. This cosmetic procedure involves the use of a chemical solution that causes dead skin cells to peel off and compel the generation of new skin. Chemical peels can range from light peels, to help make the skin look fresh and glowing, to deeper peels, which are intended to reduce signs of sun damage and aging. The results are often dramatic.
Ideal Candidates For A Chemical Peel
If your goal is to alleviate acne, smooth wrinkles, improve skin texture, age spots or sun damage, then a chemical peel may be right for you. During the consultation, your skin will be assessed and Dr. Tyrone will determine the chemical peel to use accordingly.
Types of Chemical Peels
The mildest type of chemical peel that can be used on all skin types.
Penetrate the skin more deeply than superficial peels, causing the skin to experience a second-degree burn.
Several layers of skin are penetrated with a deep peel, also causing a second-degree burn. In most cases, a deep peel can be done only once and is to be used only on the face.
Results & Recovery
The length of time for recovery will vary, depending on the type of peel the patient receives. The amount of redness, dryness, and flakiness that may develop after treatment is also dependent upon the type of peel used. These side effects are normal and will steadily disappear.
Limiting sun exposure is a must, and wearing sunscreen whenever possible will protect your new skin. Keep hands away from the face as this can cause discomfort and irritate sensitive skin. Complications, such as scarring or infection, are rare.
