When you’re dealing with aging skin, acne, melasma, or other recurring skin problems, you may need some help to uncover the healthy skin hiding below the surface. Chemical peels encourage skin cell regeneration while helping you shed dead and damaged skin cells. At Flawless Med Spa in Albuquerque, New Mexico, friendly aesthetics experts customize your chemical peels for your particular needs and lifestyle. Book your appointment online or by phone today.
Cell turnover is important in helping to manage acne, melasma, and the aging process. When a skin cell is created, it starts in the lower layers of the epidermis and travels to the top layer of skin over the course of its life. Once the cell gets to the top of your skin, they reach the end of their life and you shed them. The regeneration of new cells and the shedding process is what keeps dead cells from building up on the surface.
This is important because as we age, skin cell turnover slows down significantly. As babies, our cells regenerate every 2 weeks. However, by the time we get to 25, the rate slows to 30-35 days. This slow down is natural, however, there are many things we can do to help our bodies increase cell turnover – a facial peel being one of them because they help the body regenerate.
At Flawless Med Spa, we offer a number of different chemical peel options, including:
Each chemical peel produces specific results, so our experts can help you pick the right chemical peel based on your particular needs.
You’re a good candidate for a chemical peel if you have complexion issues like aging, hyperpigmentation, acne, uneven skin texture, acne scars, and more.
A typical chemical peel treatment takes about 30-40 minutes to perform.
Over time, your skin will look clearer and younger. Many patients even report that their skin feels firmer, thanks to the increase in cellular turnover. Blemishes will fade and you will look refreshed.
We recommend that patients give their skin a rest and refrain from exercising for 36-48 hours. The area that was treated may be red and dry. This reaction is normal. After the treatment, we will apply NeoCutis Hyalis, and Elta MD Sunscreen. Some people will start to peel 2-3 days after their treatment and new skin will start to form 4-7 days after a peel.
