WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
To produce the best results from chemical peel facial treatments, Avanti Medical Center provides you with personalized options. Your customized chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you healthier, more radiant skin. At our Lehi, UT office, our expert master estheticians provide chemical peel treatments that help to minimize a wide range of skin abnormalities, including scars, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels remove dead, damaged skin cells via specialized solutions, which allow the surface layer to peel off. As your skin recovers and begins to repair and rejuvenate, you will notice a clearer, smoother complexion.
A team member at Avanti Medical Center will evaluate your skin before selecting a chemical peel treatment for ideal results. During your appointment, we will have you lying in a comfortable position to administer your treatment. We will make sure the skin is cleaned before applying the personalized solution to the treatment areas. We will then brush the solution onto your face and let it sit for a specific length of time that will be determined in your chemical peel planning session. Next, we will clean the peel off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients should bring sunscreen or a hat to wear outside following the peel to avoid environmental exposure.
CHEMICAL PEEL FAQ
How much does a chemical peel cost?
One of our experienced master aestheticians will talk about your costs in your consultation after they have decided on your custom treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel can vary depending on the intensity you choose. Avanti Medical Center accepts many payments methods, and you can ask about current specials on treatments like chemical peels. Buying a package with several chemical peel treatments can also help you save money.
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
Which level of chemical peel is best for you will vary based on your unique skin needs and aesthetic goals. In your consultation, we will help you decide which chemical peel is best for your skin. Some factors you might consider are your general health, skin type, how deep you want the peel to work, the time you can commit to recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. Initially, it may be better to select a light chemical peel and decide what you think of the results. After this, you and your provider might tweak your treatment plan to find the best chemical peel level for you.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are both facial treatments that correct surface imperfections to make your skin a rejuvenated appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion requires special tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush) to clear away the surface skin layer with a careful scraping process. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve damaged skin cells. During your initial consultation, we will go over the advantages of each treatment and help you choose whether a chemical peel or dermabrasion is better to achieve your skin goals.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the formula used, you might feel mild discomfort while it is actively treating your skin. If you have a light peel, you may feel a little discomfort, but it goes away quickly with a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are good for deeper skin issues and offer results that last a long time; however, they usually cause greater discomfort. Topical anesthetics, medications, and soothing ointments may be used to minimize your discomfort during the chemical peel. A member of our team will give you tips on post-treatment skin care to maintain your results.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
You may consider combining a chemical peel with another nonsurgical skin treatment at Avanti Medical Center. During your consultation, be open with your provider about your skin problems so they can develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve your goals. This might include an injectable treatment for wrinkles (such as BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) along with your chemical peel to refresh your whole face.
