Underneath the dull, aged, and dry skin surface, you have radiant, glowing skin waiting to be revealed. The team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa removes the dry outermost skin layer, using chemical peel Memphis, to eliminate your skin imperfections and help you achieve your skin care goals.
What you should know about a chemical peel
Dermapeel, commonly known as a chemical peel, is a cosmetic procedure that removes the dry outer layer of your skin, improving your skin texture and appearance. With cell regeneration, the old cells tend to get damaged and die to provide room for the new cells. These dead cells can accumulate on your skin, making it appear aged, dull, and dry. Exfoliators remove some dry skin cells, but chemical peels go deeper, removing dirt and dry skin cells and leaving your skin smooth and radiant. The results of a chemical peel improve over time as the outermost layer sloughs off, revealing the new, glowing skin underneath. The specialists at A Beautiful You Medical Spa offer the best chemical peels with products from leading brands such as ZO Skin Health, GlyMed Plus, and Skinbetter science. If you are looking for a solution for dry, dull skin, don’t hesitate to consult the team.
Preparing your skin for a chemical peel
The first step is locating a board-certified dermatologist to prevent future skin complications. Your results will rely on your provider’s expertise and the type of chemical. An improperly done chemical peel can lead to permanent scars and infections. Before the procedure, the team will discuss your goals and expectations, review your medical history and perform a thorough physical exam. After determining your eligibility for the treatment, your provider may educate you about the available chemical peels, their risks, and their benefits. Your doctor may advise against using retinoid cream, bleaching agents, and certain cosmetic treatments before your chemical peel. You may also need to take antiviral medication before and after the procedure to minimize your risk of infection. You may also need to arrange for a loved one to drive you home, as it is unsafe to drive while sedated.
What to expect during a chemical peel
Dermatologists often perform chemical peels in a surgery center as an outpatient procedure or in their offices. Your doctor cleans your skin using a special agent to eliminate excess oil. During this time, your provider protects your hair and eyes. The team then applies a chemical solution consisting of carbolic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or trichloroacetic acid. The solution creates controlled injury to your skin and penetrates your skin layers, causing the outermost skin layer to peel off, revealing new healthy skin. There are different chemicals, including a light chemical peel that subtly improves skin appearance, a medium chemical peel that gives your skin a glowing, rejuvenated look, and a deep chemical peel that provides dramatic results, unlocking the most beautiful you.
