Save Your Face With A Facial Chemical Peel

Mar 19, 2008
Your face is a part of you that everyone sees and recognizes, so it is important to keep it looking fresh and youthful. Of course we cannot fight age all together, but there are several skin-care type procedures that push back the years and also help diminish any unwanted dark spots or blemishes. One way to improve your appearance is to undergo a facial chemical peel, which are used to treat photo aging, wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration. A facial chemical peel causes injury to the skin, but promoting new skin to grow, giving your skin an improved more youthful appearance.

The procedure can be done in less than an hour, depending on the size of the area that needs treatment. There are different kinds of peels, and each one is performed differently. Very light peels penetrate only the dead skin cells on top of the epidermis and do not injure your skin. Light peels to deep peels; progressively injure your skin more, depending on the condition of the skin being treated, and the desired final look. After the facial chemical peel, your skin may require some down time in order to recover. If you experienced a light to medium peel, you will endure very limited side effects, but with a deeper peel, healing may takes weeks.

Facial chemical peels have been proven to be a safe and effective method to achieve the desired look. In fact, they have been used for hundreds of years and have a safe record if used with the proper hands. The procedure however, is not for everyone, and if you are seriously considering undergoing with a facial chemical peel, be aware of the potential side effects that can arise due to your general health, susceptibility to scarring, and or skin diseases. A skin care physician will be able to best decide if the procedure is right for you. Safety is always the first thing that should be considered, and understanding the effects that such a treatment can cause will help you make the right decision.

The cost of a facial chemical peel ranges from a few hundred to a thousand dollars. It all depends on the depth of the peel and how many are required to achieve the look that you desire. You will be able to notice the success of the peel after the first treatment, and be able to better estimate how many more are needed and what the costs there will be overall. Results will generally last months to years with good sun protection, depending on the depth of the peel. The deeper the peel, the longer lasting are the effects.

The facial chemical peel is also a good precursor as to what the rest of your skin should look and feel like. If you are worried about any cancerous lesions on your face and desire a peel, seek a physician to find out if other parts of the body that have had significant sun exposure need examination and treatment for any possible cancerous areas.
