Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are aesthetic treatments designed to improve your skin’s tone and texture. After a chemical peel treatment at A New You Health & Wellness -The Woodlands, your skin looks and feels smoother and glows with vitality.

There are a variety of different types of chemical peel, so your provider takes time to assess your skin type before applying the peel that’s most suitable for you. Some chemical peels are mild and best for imperfections like skin discoloration. Other chemical peels are more intense, providing better results for problems like fine lines and wrinkles.

What skin problems do chemical peels treat?

Chemical peels can treat a broad range of skin problems and blemishes, including:

  • Acne Enlarged pores
  • Dull or rough texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is the production of excess melanin in the skin that causes darker areas. Age spots, freckles, liver spots, sun spots, and pregnancy mask are all types of hyperpigmentation.

How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels are powerful exfoliants, removing dead skin layers to uncover the newer, healthier skin underneath. Your provider at A New You Health & Wellness -The Woodlands uses the chemical blend that’s right for your skin and the type of blemish you wish to treat, applying it to your face and leaving it to work.

Once the chemical solution’s been on for the right length of time, your provider removes it, after which the top layer of skin begins to dry out. The drying skin then peels off to uncover the new skin.

One peel can improve the appearance of your skin straight away, but if you have three or more peels, you should start to see a significant difference.

Do chemical peels hurt?

Chemical peels are quite aggressive treatments, so a level of discomfort is likely. During your treatment session, you might feel a burning sensation as the chemicals begin to work, which is followed by some stinging.

After having a chemical peel, your skin could swell, feel hot, and get redder. Deeper chemical peels might cause blistering as well. You can apply cold compresses to your skin and take over-the-counter pain-relieving medication to help ease the discomfort. You might also need to wear bandages after some types of chemical peels, and you should avoid the sun to prevent it from damaging your skin as it heals.

The results of a chemical peel can be dramatic though, so it’s worth a little discomfort. Find out more by calling A New You Health & Wellness -The Woodlands today, or book an appointment online.
