At Fountain of Youth MedSpa we use a variety of peels including lunchtime peels to achieve great cosmetic results.
Chemical peels are used to rejuvenate the skin, and can be used to improve the appearance of mild scars, and to treat acne, age spots, freckles, and fine lines and wrinkles.
ARE THERE OTHER PROCEDURES THAT CAN BE DONE IN COMBINATION WITH CHEMICAL PEELS? Chemical peels can be done in combination with Botox injections or dermal fillers treatments, to reduce fine facial lines.
Chemical Peel Care
PRE CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHEMICAL PEELS:
Before undergoing a chemical peel, patients are required to prepare the skin by cleansing twice a day. They should also discontinue using alpha hydroxy acid products such as glycolic acid, as well as topical acne medications like Retin-A. Patients that are susceptible to cold sores are pre-treated with an antiviral medication, 1 day before the procedure, to prevent the recurrence of cold sores as they heal.
HOW MUCH DISCOMFORT CAN I EXPECT?
You can expect minor discomfort after the procedure, but this can be easily managed with medication.
HOW LONG WILL THE REDNESS LAST?
The redness associated with chemical peels usually disappears within a few days, except in the case of a deep peel like a NuPeel®.
WHAT ABOUT POST OP CARE?
We recommend that you keep all areas covered with emu oil or vaseline, to prevent the skin from drying. Also, be sure to use sunscreen, and avoid direct sunlight for the first week after surgery.
