Are chemical peels good for the skin?
Chemical peels are a cosmetic treatment in which a chemical solution is applied onto the skin, especially facial skin. The outermost layer of skin blisters and eventually peels off, making way for a newer layer of skin that is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old one.
Chemical peels can improve your skin’s appearance, making it look more youthful and less wrinkled. They do not only combat the imperfections caused by aging, but also the ones caused by exposure to the sun, treating wrinkles and improving areas of sun damage.
Another benefit of chemical peels is that they improve the appearance of mild scars, whether it be acne scarring or other types of scars. This happens because when the old skin is removed, the new skin that grows to replace it is healthier.
While chemical peels in Port St. Lucie are always an outpatient procedure, almost always applied in doctor’s offices, the recovery time varies according to the type of peel. For superficial peels there is practically no downtime, and skin fully recovers between four and seven days. Medium peels take five to seven days, and in deep skin won’t regenerate until about two weeks later.
At the Oasis Med Spa, we offer medium chemical peels in Port St. Lucie that are designed to penetrate your skin and rejuvenate it. We have Rejuve Peel® (Jessner) and Vi Peel®, two peels that are recognized for being very powerful and causing less discomfort and swelling afterwards.
