With SO many skin regimens out there theses days we are all looking for something that is affordable and that actually works! I know I have spent countless dollars trying to find what works for my skin and how to fight the signs of aging. Chemical peels are a fantastic way to combat aging skin and give you a fresh rejuvenated look! At Plastic Surgical Arts we offer three types of skin peels, but what is a chemical peel exactly and how will it help your skin?

A chemical peel is a treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin, resulting in a peeling effect, revealing fresh, new, healthier skin that is smooth and younger looking. Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck or hands and generally take 20 minutes for the entire treatment . We generally use chemical peels for our patients who want to treat superficial wrinkles caused by sun damage and the effects of aging and are looking for a less invasive way to correct these issues. They are great for reducing the appearance of minor scars, freckles, and dark spots and are able to treat certain types of acne. Chemical peels overall improve the look and feel of skin. We offer three types of Chemical Peels here at Plastic Surgical Arts that will fit your individual needs.

The first peel I’m going to touch base on is the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel.  This peel is perfect for patients suffering from mild to moderate skin imperfections as it smooths the appearance of fine lines, skin roughness and wrinkles. You will see noticeable results after just ONE peel but for best results we recommend doing a series of three.

The next peel we offer from the SkinMedica line is the Rejuvenize Peel.  This peel is wonderful for patients who are suffering from moderate to severe skin imperfections and want to improve their overall skin condition.  Rejuvenize smoothes out the skins texture and improves overall skin clarity improving the appearance of fine lines, skin roughness and superficial wrinkles with noticeable improvement after just one peel, however, for more compelling results we recommend a series of three to six.

The last peel that we offer is from Obagi, and is the Blue Radiance Peel. This a quick superficial salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel and what is so incredible about this peel is it actually exfoliates and helps improve your skin’s overall complexion with just ONE use. This peel provides smoother, firmer and brighter looking skin and for optimal results a series of 4 to 6 peels is recommended.

In conclusion, there is a Chemical Peel for all skin types and for all ages. It’s basically a secret weapon of ours here at Plastic Surgical Arts for people who are wanting to improve their skin with less invasive techniques. Be sure to check out our December special!!
