What is the Chemical Peel Procedure?
A chemical peel is performed with a chemical solution that is acidic in nature to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. Also known as a facial peel treatment, this procedure not only enhances the beauty of your skin, but also improves its texture. A chemical peel is one of the best ways to eliminate facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. The most commonly used and mildest Chemical Peels are phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). The specific combination of these chemicals is based on the individual needs of the patient.
Who can Benefit from the Chemical Peel Procedure?
A chemical peel treatment is not as effective as surgery, and the procedure will not slow the aging process. However, the value of the treatment mainly lies in increasing the look and appeal of the skin in the shortest possible time. Chemical peel treatments are also helpful in removing pre-cancerous skin growths, softening facial scars and controlling acne. The strength of the chemical peels varies depending on the applicable active ingredient. We selectively use these solutions to give you smoother and brighter looking skin. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is used across a wide range of concentrations and is most commonly used for medium peeling action. The strongest chemical peel is phenol. It is used for its intense cleaning action in treating coarse facial wrinkles, and excess sun exposure that has led to blotchy or damaged skin.
Dr. Ginsburg will determine the levels of chemicals that are needed for each patient. Typically skin type and level of correction is considered when preparing the chemical formulation. This ensures that every patient is completely satisfied with the results of the chemical peel. The treatment is very effective in increasing levels of self-confidence, and the best part is that it doesn’t cause infections and scarring.
How Much Does a Chemical Peel Cost in Philadelphia?
