Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?

Are you looking for a nonsurgical way to refresh your skin while getting rid of discolorations and fine lines? A chemical peel may just be the answer! This popular procedure gives new skin a chance to grow, giving you younger looking, radiant skin.

The chemical peel procedure

Chemical peels are often done on the face, but they can also be used on the arms, hands, and even chest. In this procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which blisters and peels off. When the new skin grows back, it is smooth and younger looking.

Typically, there are three kinds of peels: light (for the upper layer of skin), medium (for the middle layer), and deep (for the damaged cells that are deep within the skin). However, Amara Medical Aesthetics goes beyond just the regular chemical peels to offer the ZO 3-Step Peel, which boosts collagen production and protects skin from damage, and the VI Peel, which uses powerful ingredients for healthy, younger looking skin. These peels can be used on any skin type or color. Your doctor will help you decide which peel is appropriate for your skin and for the results you are looking for.

A chemical peel won’t help saggy skin or severe wrinkles, although a peel can be used in combination with other procedures that can help these issues. Peels can help with fine lines, acne, freckles, and age spots.

After the peel

Immediately after a chemical peel, your skin may feel irritated and dry, and there may be some redness. Your doctor might prescribe a painkiller, or you can use an over-the-counter pain reliever. Your downtime will vary depending on which peel you have done – one peel may require no downtime at all, while another one may require a week of recovery. You should make sure to stay out of the sun as much as possible after your peel, and make sure to use sunscreen when you do go out.

A chemical peel is a great way to refresh your skin without surgery. The staff at Amara Medical Aesthetics in Bellevue, Washington, can discuss your facial peel options with you. Call (425) 278-9233 today to schedule a consultation!
