If you want to keep your facial skin looking smooth, healthy, and full of life, having a proactive skincare routine is imperative. Otherwise, it’s very easy for fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and other cosmetic skin issues to get out of control and take over your facial appearance. One of the easiest ways to keep your skin youthful and vibrant is to periodically undergo chemical peel treatment.
What Should I Expect During the Treatment?
Your chemical peel treatment will be an outpatient procedure performed right at our facility. First, you’ll have a quick consultation with Dr. Arroyo, who will help you determine which chemical peel treatment is best for you.
If you’re undergoing a VI Peel, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed before the chemical solution is applied to your face in several layers. Although you’ll be able to return home after only 30 minutes, the solution will need to remain on your skin for approximately four hours.
The process will be different for the SkinCeuticals MicroPeel. After your skin is cleansed, it will be exfoliated using a special dermaplaning tool. Next, Dr. Arroyo will apply the MicroPeel chemical solution to your skin, which will remove the outer layer of skin and stimulate the production of collagen. Finally, carbon dioxide will be applied to your facial skin to reduce the inflammatory response, unblock the pores, and slough off dead and damaged skin cells.
