Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an excellent, non-surgical treatment to restore a more vibrant, youthful appearance to the skin. At the practice of Dr. Georges Kaado, we perform our signature Virginia Beach chemical peel using cutting-edge techniques to achieve dramatic improvement in blotchy, sun damaged, or aging skin.

What Are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a procedure involving an acid solution used to remove dead and damaged upper layers of skin. This technique is used to smooth and refine texture and improve the appearance of skin on the face, neck, and hands. The chemical solution applied to the skin causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off, leaving new, regenerated skin that is smoother, less wrinkled, and more refined.

What Are the Different Types of Chemical Peels and What Benefits Do They Provide?

Chemical peels provide a non-surgical treatment option to restore a more youthful look to aging or sun damaged skin. There a several different types of chemical peels, each with its own unique benefits for the skin.

 

Superficial Peel

Also known as a “lunchtime peel” or light chemical peel in Virginia beach, this treatment uses alpha-hydroxy acid, or another mild acid, to penetrate only the outer layer of skin. This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates the skin’s outer layer to remove dead and damaged skin and encourage cell regeneration. A superficial chemical peel can improve acne scars, skin texture, and mild discoloration to refresh the face, neck, chest, or hands.

Medium Peel

In a medium peel, glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to the skin to penetrate the outer and middle layers and remove damaged cells. This treatment can improve fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, freckles, acne scars, and moderate skin discoloration. A medium peel produces more dramatic results than a light peel with no extended recovery time.

Deep Peel

A deep peel uses trichloroacetic acid or phenol to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove age spots, shallow scars, freckles, and moderate lines. This treatment is only performed once and requires some recovery time. It produces the most dramatic improvement of any type of chemical peel.

MicroPeel

A MicroPeel is an innovative treatment that combines procedures to enhance your results:

  • First, dead skin cells are removed in a technique known as dermaplaning. An alpha-hydroxy acid solution is brushed on and allowed to remain on the skin for approximately 10 minutes to exfoliate the skin and prepare it for a chemical peel.
  • Next, a chemical solution, carefully and individually tailored for you, is applied to the skin to remove the damaged outer layer and stimulate collagen production. The chemical solution is removed to reveal a fresh new layer of more youthful-looking skin.
  • Finally, cryotherapy is performed. This finishing freezing treatment promotes cell turnover, fights bacteria and inflammation, and leaves the skin looking and feeling refreshed.

A Micro-Peel benefits the skin in several different ways. This cutting-edge combined treatment:

  • Smooths the skin
  • Improves the appearance of photo damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles
  • Leaves the skin feeling softer and looking more radiant
  • Stimulates collagen production for firmer skin over time
  • Promotes faster natural exfoliation for a fresher appearance of the skin

Chemical Peel – Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a great way to rejuvenate your skin. Brighter, healthier looking skin that improves your overall look are just a couple of the reasons it is worth having a chemical peel. Other benefits include:

  • Reduce skin imperfections
  • Minimize any superficial scars
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce skin damage caused by sun exposure
  • Improves skin clarity, which helps reduce acne
  • Enables skin care products to be absorbed more deeply into the skin

Who is the Perfect Candidate for a Chemical Peel in Virginia Beach?

Over time, your facial skin can start to look dull. If you are unhappy with the tone or texture of your skin, a chemical peel can improve the appearance and leave you feeling more refreshed fewer visible lines and wrinkles. If you have struggled with skin problems such as hyperpigmentation, a chemical peel promotes the growth of new and healthy top skin layer that looks supple, firm, evenly-toned, and glowing.

Should I Avoid Applying Products or Undergoing Procedures Before Treatment?

You should not have any waxing, laser hair removal treatments or use any hair removal creams one week prior to a chemical peel. Stop using any products that contain retinol, hydroxyl acids, or benzoyl peroxide at least three to four days before the peel. If you have had any recent procedures that have caused your skin to be more sensitive, it is important that you wait until you have completely healed before you have a chemical peel.

Are There Any Preparations That Should be Make Before a Chemical Peel?

Most peels in Virginia do not require any preparation. If you tan regularly, it is important to stay away from the tanning beds or sun exposure for at least three weeks prior to your treatment. Prepare your skin by applying any prescribed lotions Dr. Kaado recommends.

How Do I Care for my Skin After a Chemical Peel?

Recovery time can vary significantly by patient and what type of chemical peel was performed. Some peels are stronger and meant to significantly penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. These can require a longer recovery time. The actual peeling of your skin will last approximately three to seven days depending on the peel’s strength. Let the skin peel off naturally; do not pick or peel off the dead skin. The use of a good UV sunscreen is important as the top layer of your skin has been removed to make way for the new, healthy layer.
