To prevent aging, you must take care of your skin and wash your face often. Many people also choose to go through proactive and preventative treatments to keep their skin looking fresh and youthful. One of the most proactive treatments that you can receive is a Chemical Peel. An acid mixture will be brushed onto your face and work its way into your skin to remove the outer layer of dermal tissue. This will spur your cells to grow and multiply and give you a more youthful appearance.
If you are thinking about receiving a Chemical Peel, consult Dr. Banks about the benefits and the procedure. Patients who have fine lines, acne scars and small imperfections in their face may benefit from this procedure. Dr. Banks will determine how severe the imperfections in your face are and decide which level of Chemical Peels may benefit you the most. If you require the most extensive Chemical Peel, you will be given anesthesia to sleep. However, if you only have a small amount of skin damage, the Chemical Peel will be an outpatient procedure. The results of a Chemical Peel can last for one month to ten years depending on the level you receive.
Recovery from a Chemical Peel is different for each patient. Everyone will experience reddening and flaking of the skin. However, depending upon the level of the Chemical Peel, you will have a different recovery time. If you simply receive a superficial Chemical Peel, your recovery time may be as little as one day. If you have a deeper peel though, your recovery time can last for two weeks. As your skin cells continue to grow and multiply, your skin will peel, and your new skin will appear underneath. During your recovery, only wash your face with water.
