What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are minimally invasive treatments to address a range of skin issues, including cosmetic imperfections and conditions like:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Dryness
  • Melasma
  • Uneven complexion
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin discoloration

The goal of a chemical peel is to remove layers of dead skin cells that dry out and dull your complexion. Peels are available at different depths to address mild to severe skin flaws.

Visiting Medical Clinic, LLC, offers chemical peels for adults at the Las Vegas office. Amanda completes a comprehensive skin evaluation to ensure you’re a candidate for a chemical peel and can recommend which type of peel is a good fit for you.

What happens during chemical peels?

During your chemical peel at Visiting Medical Clinic, LLC, Amanda applies a special chemical agent to the surface of your skin.

The chemicals remove the outer layers of your skin to reveal the healthy skin below. The new skin appears more youthful and fresher to enhance your overall complexion.

Eliminating the dull, dry skin cells also minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, sunspots, and other skin imperfections that prematurely age your skin.

How long does it take to recover from chemical peels?

A light chemical peel removes only the outermost layer of skin. After treatment, you can expect your skin to be red, slightly swollen, and tender to the touch.

Treated skin might also be dry and flake off. Amanda recommends a high-quality moisturizer to nourish your skin. She can also suggest cleansers, sunscreens, and other skin care products you can use.

Recovery from a light chemical peel can take a few days before your skin heals fully. However, many people can return to their usual activities in a day or two without limitations. If Amanda performs a deeper chemical peel, you may need more downtime to recover to lower your risk for skin damage, infection, and other complications.

Amanda might recommend additional chemical peels to maintain your fresh appearance. She discusses how often you should schedule a peel based on your skin health and aesthetic goals.
