Chemical Peels Lemont IL

Chemical peels work by resurfacing the top layers of the skin. By lightly, or deeply exfoliating these old damaged cells, your skin will naturally produce younger, more uniform cells. The beauty of peels is that there are many combinations of ingredients and depths that we can use to treat a broad range of conditions including acne, sun damage, fine lines, texture, and pigmentation. Downtime ranges from no downtime to 5-7 days depending on depth. Chemical peels are a wonderful adjunct to other treatments such as laser, microneedling, and facials.

Three levels of chemical peels are available. Choose the one that is right for you.

Light Chemical Peel or a superficial chemical peel removes the outer layer of your skin cells or the epidermis. A light chemical peel is used to treat fine wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dryness, and acne. Light chemical peels are available as often as every two to five weeks.

Medium Chemical Peels work on your epidermis and a part of the middle layer of your skin or the dermis. Medium chemical peels treat wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tones. A medium chemical peel can be redone after three to nine months to help you preserve your youthful-looking skin.

Deep Chemical Peels remove the skin cells from the top layer of your skin and portions of the mid to lower layers of your skin. A deep chemical peel can help deep wrinkles, deep scars, or pre-cancerous growths.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are also commonly known as chemexfoliation or derma peeling, and involve the application of a chemical solution to your facial skin. Chemical face peels are meant to simulate irritation to the top layers of your skin, which are then peeled away to reveal youthful looking skin that is smoother, has fewer lines and wrinkles, has more color and brightens your complexion.

What are Chemical Peel Treatments Like?

Prior to your chemical peel your Solana Aesthetician will recommend no sun exposure, and to avoid topical retinoids for one to two weeks prior to treatment.

A consultation with a Solana Aesthetician will help you decide which kind of chemical peel treatment is best for you. There are three levels of chemical peels that are available, which are light, medium or deep chemical peels.

Upon treatment, your face will be thoroughly cleaned prior to a solution being applied to your skin. Then, one of three face peels will be applied:

Light Chemical Peel – A light chemical peel, (also known as a superficial chemical peel) removes the outer layer of your skin cells, or the epidermis. A light chemical peel is used to treat fine wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dryness and acne. Light chemical peels are available as often as every two to five weeks, as they are designed with repeat treatments in mind.

Medium Chemical Peels – A medium chemical peel works on your epidermis and a part of the middle layer of your skin or the dermis. Medium chemical peels treat wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tones. A medium chemical peel can be redone after three to nine months to help you preserve your youthful-looking skin.

Deep Chemical Peels – A deep chemical peel removes the skin cells from the top layer of your skin, and portions of the mid to lower layers of your skin. A deep chemical peel can help deep wrinkles, deep scars or pre-cancerous growths. Deep chemical peels are generally performed under anesthesia.

It’s possible that you won’t have to endure any downtime after your chemical peel, but some patients have reported up to 5-7 days of downtime depending on depth. Generally, the deeper the chemical peel treatment, the longer the downtime.

Who Should Get a Chemical Peel?
