When it comes to skin rejuvenation, patients have a wide range of different treatments to choose from. If you’re looking for a way to improve the overall quality, appearance, and health of your skin without the need for laser therapy or injectables, you may want to consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels are a simple, easy, and non-invasive way to reveal younger, healthy-looking skin. We’ve chosen to offer these exciting treatments at Orange County Hand Surgery Specialists because they are an excellent alternative for patients that are hesitant to undergo other types of aesthetic treatment.
A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation and resurfacing procedure that removes the topmost layers of the skin to stimulate the creation of younger, healthier-looking skin. Exfoliating the upper layers of the skin is so beneficial for its overall appearance and health because these layers tend to accumulate dead skin cells, dirt, and other facial impurities. A chemical peel can help clear away these contaminants, and leave your skin feeling renewed and refreshed.
In addition to cleansing the skin, chemical peels also help stimulate the formation of newer, stronger skin tissue. The new skin that develops after a chemical peel is smoother, tighter, and more youthful looking than the skin that came before it.
Through this exfoliation and regeneration, a chemical peel can help improve a broad range of specific skin issues. These include:
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Superficial scars
At Orange County Hand Surgery Specialists, we’re proud to offer our patients the PCA Sensi Peel®. This peel is gentle enough to be used on highly sensitive skin but strong enough to bring patients beautiful skin brightening results. Each of these treatments typically lasts no longer than 30 minutes. During this time, many patients experience a warm, tingling sensation. While this sensation can escalate into a stinging or burning feeling, most of the discomfort felt is minimal.
Nearly anyone interested in improving the look and feel of their skin is a potential candidate for a chemical peel. However, if you are physically unhealthy, have active acne or skin infections, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, a chemical peel may not be safe for you. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Chi will examine your skin and take into account your medical history and current state of health in order to decide if a chemical peel is right for you.
