Chemical Peels Explained
Those familiar with facials should consider a Medical Facial, or chemical peel. A Medical Facial is stronger than a regular facial because it uses physician-strength ingredients. We offer 2 different levels of chemical peels, both light and medium, with each level dependent on the intensity of the peel and recovery time.
In general, chemical peels are less expensive alternatives to laser treatments or IPL for Chicago women and men who are searching for affordable facial rejuvenation. Chemical peels can help reduce signs of aging, but are not as effective on facial wrinkles as BOTOX® Cosmetic in Chicago. However, chemical peels have many benefits, including:
- Facial rejuvenation
- Skin resurfacing
- Restoration of sun-damaged skin
- Improvement of blemishes
- Correction of uneven pigmentation
Our aesthetician administers chemical peels to our patients by first cleansing the face to remove any makeup or dirt. The treatment is then placed on the skin and removed. Light and medium peels usually only take around 30 minutes to perform. Also, depending on the peel, recovery time differs. For light peels, the skin may flake or become dry, but these symptoms typically disappear after a short amount of time. For medium peels, patients may experience swelling of the skin. This swelling usually subsides after about a week.
