Excited to try a new chemical peel for a fresh young look? Chemical peels rid your skin of unsightly acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. What’s the best chemical peel for wrinkles and clean skin? What do you need to know before you go in for your first treatment? Let’s go over the basics that you must know first!
Your First Chemical Peel
When you schedule your first chemical peel, the most important thing to know is that you are working with a professional. Be sure to ask a lot of questions, like what is the best chemical peel for wrinkles or if you will experience any risk or inflammation. Find out what peel works best for your skin type, age, and condition. You want more information, not less. At Urban Organic Spa our friendly staff will be happy to answer all of your important chemical peel questions.
What is the Best Treatment for Acne?
While there are many effective options, one of the most popular chemical peels include beta hydroxyl acid. Talk with your aesthetician about which chemical peel works best for your skin. You want a treatment that reduces inflammation and has minimal irritation. Suffer from rosacea? Peels with salicylic acid may be best. Ask our Urban Spa experts when you schedule your first appointment.
Hyperpigmentation and Darker Skin
Chemical peels may affect skin pigmentation, and not always in the way you want. A chemical peel can help minimize hyperpigmentation from acne. The treatment may involve a number of different acids to rid your body of acne and scarring.
For clients with darker pigmentation like African-American clients and those with Mediterranean skin types, a superficial peel should have the desired effect you want – beautiful fresh skin. Almost all chemical peels will not affect darker skin types. However, if you will need to talk with our Urban Organic Spa staff about how deeper chemical peels may affect your pigmentation. Additionally, if you have a history of hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, or keloiding, you should sit down with our experts and find the chemical peel best for you.
After the Treatment
Expect several peels to treat most skin conditions. A light superficial chemical peel will result in almost immediate beautiful skin, without flaking or peeling. In a few days, your skin will look even better. Deeper peels may result in redness and swelling, but usually, the irritation is minimal. Over the next few weeks, the skin improves. Deeper chemical peels and scarring take longer to have desirable results. Talk with Urban Organic Spa about how to care for your skin during this process. We will recommend cleansing options, lotions, and avoid the sun.
