Chemical Peels- Effective, Medical Skin Care in Madison
The skin naturally sheds its outer layer regularly, but over time, this process tends to slow down. This, in addition to aging, is why it’s common for the skin to lose its youthful glow. To jumpstart the rejuvenation process, many men and women incorporate chemical peels into their skincare routine.
Chemical peels are minimally invasive treatments that exfoliate the skin, trigger cell renewal and stimulate collagen. This treatment requires little downtime and can be completely customized to your skin type.
A flawless complexion is within reach – renew your skin with a minimally invasive chemical peel in Madison at Aria DermSpa.
Explore Your Chemical Peel Options
Aria DermSpa offers a number of different chemical peels to suit your individual needs and preferences.
Some of the most popular options include the following:
Glycolic acid is one of the gentlest forms of alpha hydroxy acid. It exfoliates the skin’s surface to reveal a bright, even complexion. This type of chemical peel comes in different strengths, but the peel process is usually the same. Typically, the glycolic solution will be applied to your skin and left for about 5-15 minutes. You might feel a light tingling sensation, but it does not produce pain. Afterward, the solution is neutralized and removed. This gentle peel is perfect for those who are new to chemical peels, or for people who want to treat fine lines, dull skin, and moderate hyperpigmentation.
Combination peels use 2-4 different mild peeling agents to get a superior result. During treatment, the chemical peel solution is applied for a short time and then neutralized and removed. Afterward, patients might experience mild peeling as the skin is rejuvenated. Salicylic acid peels are great options for clogged pores, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, psoriasis, and acne.
TCA peels contain trichloroacetic acid, which is considered a relative of common vinegar. This type of chemical peel can achieve different depths of exfoliation based on the potency, but it is stronger than both glycolic acid and salicylic acid peels. After the solution is applied, it creates a controlled injury to the skin. The skin then peels in the days that follow, eventually revealing new, healthy skin. A TCA chemical peel can produce powerful results, and it is commonly used for severe hyperpigmentation, fine lines, skin texture issues, and it is even FDA-approved to treat precancerous actinic keratosis.
