Am I an Ideal Candidate for Medical-Grade Chemical Peels?
As you can imagine, there are no two skin types considered to be identical; therefore, at Elite Aesthetics we begin all treatments with a complementary and comprehensive consultation in which we discuss your goals, your challenges, and your unique skin chemistry; Afterwhich, our skincare experts guide you on how we have selected the right peel for you and what to expect.
As we mentioned, chemical peels can be ideal for boosting the benefits of daily and monthly skincare maintenance or in combination with other intensive skincare treatments such as lasers or injectables. We will address this during your consultation in order to achieve your most optimal results.
Those suffering from severe acne, extremely sensitive skin, heart disease, and or cold sores are less likely ideal candidates.
Is There Downtime Involved with Medical-Grade Chemical Peels?
While it is extremely common for medical-grade peels to induce deep exfoliation—a true peeling effect and “turn-over” of the skin—and different degrees of redness, Dr. Lieman continues to seek out the most effective, yet practical and efficient peels to keep patients comfortable and able to spring back into daily routine with a fresh face sooner rather than later. The immediate effects of our chemical peels induce mild peeling with little to no downtime. In most cases, peeling and skin turn-over subsides within a few short days with proper aftercare and maintenance.
Are Chemical Peels Safe?
Chemical Peels are safe; however, they must be administered by a professional skincare expert or medical professional. As with any treatments involving aggressive ingredients including acids, there can be adverse reactions such as infection, numbness, or scarring; however, this is very rare and we are able to help determine your candidacy by taking a close look at your skin and asking a few medical questions in advance. And, of course, you are less likely to experience any of these reactions if you closely and carefully follow the pre- and post-care guidance we provide.
