Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Chemical peels in Pomona can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a younger look. They may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemicals peels use an acid solution, such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA), alpha hydroxy acids (HCA), or phenol, to remove damaged skin layers. These are often used to treat wrinkles, facial blemishes, dullness, hyperpigmentation, light freckling, sun damage, mild scarring, fine lines, and enlarged pores.
The ideal candidates for chemical peels include light-haired and fair-skinned people who are unhappy with their skin. Good candidates do not smoke, are in good overall health, and have realistic cosmetic goals.
The Treatment Process
The skin will be cleaned thoroughly at the start of the chemical peel. A chemical solution will then be applied to small parts of the skin, where it will then soak into the skin layers. This will encourage gradual removal of the skin’s outer layers.
It is normal to feel a burning or stinging sensation that may last for five to ten minutes. It helps to put a cool compress on the area being treated.
The Recovery Process
After a chemical peel, the skin may break out or show signs similar to sunburn as it heals. It might also peel and experience redness for a few days. It is best to stop applying makeup, avoid the sun for two weeks, and apply SPF 15 sunblock or higher on the face.
The Cost of Chemical Peels
The price of chemical peels depends on the type of peel, cost of anesthesia, number of sessions required, maintenance treatments, and daily aftercare skincare regimen.
