Chemical peels are a skin treatment that involves the use of a chemical solution applied to the outer layer of your skin to cause a deep exfoliation and allow those layers to peel off naturally. The new skin that’s revealed underneath is smoother.
Chemical peels work exceptionally well to:
Most people are good candidates for a chemical peel. You might not be a good candidate for a chemical peel if you have a skin condition that makes your skin hyper-sensitive, or if you have a history of severe skin scarring.
A chemical peel is an in-office procedure. The Northpoint team will clean your face and give you protective eyewear.
For lighter chemical peels, pain relief isn’t usually required, but if you have a medium chemical peel, you can opt for a painkiller and a sedative.
Dr. Ciocchetti might numb your skin with a local anesthetic, depending on the severity of your skin problem, your tolerance for pain, and the strength of the chemical peel.
Dr. Ciocchetti will apply the chemical solution to your skin and leave it for a few minutes. A cold compress might be applied, and you might receive a fan, so you can cool your skin if it feels warm. You’ll be able to go home afterward.
After the peel, your outer layers of treated skin will gradually begin to peel off. Underneath, your fresh new layer of skin will emerge. The recovery time for a chemical peel depends; if it’s a light peel there is very little recovery time, but a medium peel might require up to two weeks until the skin heals fully.
For a deep chemical peel, it can take up to one month for your skin to fully heal. Time off from your work and daily activities might be necessary.
A chemical peel is a highly effective treatment that repeatedly shows impressive cosmetic results. Call or book your chemical peel online and visit the Northglenn, Colorado office.
