What Is A Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.

There are several types of chemical peels:

  • Light peels to remove superficial wrinkles
  • Medium peels
  • Deep peels for more severe conditions.

Chemical peels are also based on the concept of creating controlled skin “damage”. It removes the dead skin, which stimulates natural, regenerative skin processes and collagen production. This results in new, healthy skin growth, providing a younger look.

At Miami Plastic Surgery, we only use the highest quality chemical peels. With VI Peel and BioRePeel, a gentler, more organic chemical peel solution, we offer fully customizable skin rejuvenation services to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What Can I Expect During A Chemical Peel?

After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas.

The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient’s skin, and some patients may need multiple treatments over time.

The application of the peel can take up to 30 minutes.  In the days following you will notice your skin begin to shed, the severity of this depends on the strength of your chemical peel.  Ask your aesthetician what to expect with the specific peel she applies.  A chemical peel can be done alone or in combination with another treatment like a HydraFacial.

Benefits Of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels may be regarded as the elixir of youth by patients who have reaped the benefits of treatment by a skilled aesthetician. Typically, a chemical peel will reveal a youthful, vibrant appearance to a previously wrinkled, sun-damaged and blotchy skin.

Are Chemical Peels Safe?

With most chemical peels adverse reactions are rare. Adverse reactions following a mild to medium peel may include:

  • Scarring
  • Numbness
  • Infection
  • Mild irritation
  • Redness
  • Peeling

These side effects will usually last for only a few days.

Patients with sensitive skin may benefit from BioRePeel, which is a more organic, gentler alternative to traditional chemical peels. With little to no visible skin shedding, BioRePeel is versatile and suited for a wide variety of skin types and concerns.

Do Chemical Peels Hurt?

Pain is an individual experience. Generally, however, chemical peels do not hurt. You may experience a little tingling, tightness, or a change in temperature.

While you should not feel pain during or after the procedure, slight increased sensitivity may be experienced after. To avoid irritation or discomfort on your newly resurfaced skin, adhere to the following advice:

  • Do not exfoliate for 48 hours after your chemical peel, and
  • Steer clear of the gym for 24 hours after the procedure

Recovery Time After A Chemical Peel

VI Peel and BioRePeel provide effective skin resurfacing and rejuvenation without the uncomfortable post-peel shedding of other chemical peel solutions. With gentle, skin-nourishing ingredients, our chemical peels don't interfere with your day-to-day activities. You don't have to worry about hiding away while your skin heals -- Miami Plastic Surgery chemical peels allow you to get right back to everyday life.

It is important to follow post-care instructions following your Miami chemical peel. Don't pull off any visibly shedding skin. Instead, using a gentle exfoliator can help to loosen and remove the excess skin and reveal your clearer, healthier skin beneath. Likewise,  because your skin is more sensitive to UV damage after a chemical peel, be sure to wear sun protectant and avoid overexposure to the sun.
