Chemical Peels in Exton, PA
Chemical peels are used to rejuvenate skin by removing the top dead layer of skin, improving tone, texture, pigmentation, and overall skin health. They work to shrink pore size, correct fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve acne and hyperpigmentation.
Immediately after the peel, your skin may feel tight and may be red. Depending on the type and depth of peel, you may or may not experience actual skin peeling afterwards.
A chemical peel is a very safe procedure when performed by Dr. Liu, and there are peels for every skin type.
Why Should You Choose A Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Depending on the skin problems you would like to address during your appointment,
- Light chemical peel. A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine lines, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light peel every two to five weeks. There is usually little to no "down time" with light peels. Many patients will even get these over the lunch breaks and go straight back to work or school.
- Medium chemical peel. A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. A medium deph chemical peel may come with a few days of "down time", however it will take fewer treatments to reach your goals compared to a light peel.
- Deep chemical peel. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Deep peels are used to treat more severe wrinkles and skin concerns.
How To Prepare For Your Chemical Peel:
- Don’t exfoliate. Since a chemical peel is an in-depth exfoliation, it’s important that you do not exfoliate for at least 1 week before your appointment. You should also stop any retinol products 1 week before your appointment.
- Refrain from using make-up on the day of your appointment.
- Avoid the sun.
- Stay hydrated.
