Do you have fine lines around your eyes and mouth or wrinkles caused by aging and/or sun damage? Do you have scarring from acne? Perhaps age spots or dark spots are bothering you. Maybe you’d like to improve the overall look and feel of your skin. If any of these conditions apply to you and you’d like to make a change for the better, chemical peels in Honolulu could be the treatment you need.
Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?
To determine if a chemical peel is the right course of action, you will first need to make an appointment with our professional, who will want to discuss your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and if you have any allergies or skin sensitivities. This professional will inspect the area you feel needs treatment, and this can help determine what type of chemical peel is right for you. This is a good time to discuss your expectations to help ensure you’ll be happy with the outcome.
Different Chemical Peels and What to Expect
Chemical peels in Honolulu are used to treat various skin conditions. Depending on your reason for getting a skin peel, different levels are available to suit your needs.
Light Chemical Peels
This is a superficial peel that will remove the outer layer of skin, also referred to as the epidermis. Light chemical peels can be used to treat uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles and dry skin. This procedure can be repeated on a regular basis until on when you feel you’ve reached your skin care goal. The same process used for the light chemical peel is preformed with a different variation of chemicals.
Medium Chemical Peels
Like the light chemical peel, the medium chemical peel also removes skin cells from the epidermis, but it will also remove skin cells from the portions of the middle layer of the skin known as the dermis. A medium chemical peel is used to treat pigment issues, uneven skin tone and wrinkles.
Deep Chemical Peels
A deep chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis as well as the mid to lower layer of the dermis. Our professional might recommend a deep chemical peel for more severe skin issues.
