As we age, the dermal collagen and elastin content of our skin decreases. When combined with sun exposure, this leads to sagging skin and an uneven complexion. At Laser Aesthetics, we believe that perfect beauty should be a timeless thing. Our professional, friendly staff is here to meet all of your skin care needs. Our dedicated clinic is proud to offer Vi + Skin Medica Chemical Peels to our treasured Cape Cod clientele.
What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are skincare treatments that involve the application of mild acids directly to the skin. Commonly used acids such as Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and Beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) are safe for skin and act as exfoliating agents causing skin to eventually peel off. As old skin peels off, fresh, new skin emerges leading to a smoother and less wrinkled complexion. There are three common variations of peels: Superficial, Medium, and Deep. Laser Aesthetics uses superficial peels for mild treatments and deep, penetrating peels for severe conditions.
Chemical Peel Process
Before your treatment, it’s important to take antiviral medication if you are prone to developing cold sores. The application process can take just a few minutes. When the peel is applied, you may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation. After treatment, it’s extremely important to protect your treated skin from sun exposure by using a transparent zinc oxide sun-blocker before going outdoors.
Chemical Peel Results
Post-treatment, peels can cause a remodeling of collagen and increase the elastic fiber content of you skin. Collagen and elastin (an elastic fiber) are the key proteins needed to maintain skin radiance and tightness. There is some downtime with certain deep peels. However, the results can be seen after just 1 session!
