Facial Chemical Peels
January 12, 2016
2016 is here, and it is the perfect year for you to feel and look your best. The most popular New Year’s resolutions revolve around becoming a healthier version of yourself, and there is no better kick-start than a simple procedure that will motivate you to keep on track. Facial chemical peels are simple, non-surgical procedures done to reveal more beautiful and younger skin. Dr. Hunter Moyer is an experienced plastic surgeon that offers chemical peels to significantly improve your facial appearance.
Chemical peels are most commonly done on the face, neck, and hands. Facial chemical peels focus on the face and neck in order to enhance your appearance and bring a youthful glow to your face. Facial chemical peels are done to:
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage
- Reduce skin discoloration, age spots, and dark patches caused by pregnancy or taking birth control pills
- Improve the appearance of mild scars
- Treat certain types of acne
- Improve the overall appearance and feel of the skin
Facial chemical peels are non-surgical procedures done in an approximate 30-minute appointment. After the face has been thoroughly washed and dried, a chemical solution will be applied to the face that will cause “controlled wounds.” These wounds are burning off old skin cells to reveal fresh and vibrant skin. There is some burning and stinging involved, but cold compresses will be applied to your face to reduce any discomfort. Following the procedure, your skin will begin to slough off (peel) dead or damaged cells, revealing a more youthful and energetic look to your face. It is very important to wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day to prevent damage to your new skin.
