Peels can be an effective way to rejuvenate the surface layers of your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars. A variety of different compounds are used for the process. At ELITESKIN the basic entree is a facial peel determined by your skin type, the problem you are trying to correct, and any medications you may take. A careful analysis of your skin helps determine the best peel for your skin’s unique needs. You know when your skin is sensitive, dry, over-processed, on the verge of a breakout, wrinkly or oily–and WE KNOW how to clinically treat, correct, and cure these conditions.
Chemical peels use stronger compounds such as phenols and are generally applied to the face, hands, and neck to smooth the appearance and refine imperfections. A liquid-base peel is applied to the skin, which makes skin peel over the course of a few days. After the skin heals, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and dark patches are reduced in appearance. You’d never have thought it could be this easy. Pain medication or cold packs may be necessary to relieve any burning sensation. You may need to be driven home. The skin will be red and will peel for (7 to 14 days) after the treatment.
