Best Chemical Peels Lone Tree, CO
During the treatment, we clean the skin and all oils are removed. The peel solution is applied to the treatment areas in layers. We wait between each layer for the solution to dry. With each layer, we observe the response of the skin. We are looking for redness, swelling, development of frosting or dryness, tingling, and burning. These symptoms help us to determine the number of layers necessary to achieve our desired outcome. When we reach the desired outcome, some peels require neutralization. Neutralizing a peel means stopping the active ingredient from continuing to interact with the skin. In some cases, there is a special solution required for neutralization, in other cases, we gently wash the solution off.
Detailed instructions will be provided for aftercare. Many peels require the solution to be left on the skin for up to 12 hours after application. We will discuss the necessary steps during the appointment and provide any necessary aftercare products for you to take home. That’s when the magic happens. You will notice your skin feels dry and tight for several days before peeling begins. The peeling often begins in most mobile areas like the mouth, chin, and around the nose. It will progress outward and finish with the hairline and jawline. The length of this process depends on the solution we choose. In some cases, the peeling is very mild and acts more like dryness or flaking. In other cases, the peel can be very thick and sheet-like.
Tip: These are best done in fall and winter when you will be out of the sun!
