What can I expect from a chemical peel and where is the best place to get a lite peel of any kind? Red Lotus Skin and Lash Salon in Beaverton, Oregon answers this question.
The results of a chemical peel vary depending on the peel that you receive. A superficial peel only slightly reduces the signs of aging and skin damage and the results are minimal unless used in cycles on a consistent basis. This way is generally the safer approach to take because you have less downtime and more peels can be used in a shorter amount of time. Typically it takes a few peels to start noticing a difference in blemishes. After one peel you should notice a difference in the texture and smoothness of your skin. It will feel much more refreshed after shedding the old dead skin cells off.
Medium peels are effective in reducing signs of sun damage and fine wrinkles but carry a higher risk and longer downtimes. With peels you can always have the option of applying it in multiple layers to increase the intensity and effectiveness of the peel on the skin. Layering is for more experienced users as the peel can penetrate a little deeper into the skin.
A deep peel noticeably tightens the skin and eliminates wrinkles and the effects are commonly dramatic. Repeated deep peels are not recommended. Deep peels can be performed at a physician's office and downtimes can last anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks.
One thing to remember is always be patient when using a chemical peel, many expect to see miracles in just one peel. The best approach is to take is slower and start with a lower strength peel, then you can work your way up to applying it on a regular basis, with consistency you will see positive results. Results will vary from person to person, each person will always have a unique experience with each peel.
