CHEMICAL PEELS – WESTPORT, CT

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

With the aid of chemical solution, chemical peel is designed to smooth and enhance the texture of the facial skin, by ridding it of damaged outer layers.

It is beneficial for those with wrinkles, blemishes and uneven pigmentation. Chemical peel may also be used to eliminate pre-cancerous skin growths and treat acne.

The formula for each peel is adjusted to suit each patient’s needs.

WHAT TYPES OF CHEMICAL PEEL ARE AVAILABLE?

Westport Medical Spa offers:

  • Alphahydroxy acid (glycolic, lactic or fruit acid) peel
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel

Alphahydroxy acid peels produce light peels. These types of peels are a suitable skinacare treatment option for providing brighter-looking, smoother skin if you do not have time to recover from a TCA or phenol peel. AHA peels can be utilized to treat acne, dry areas, subtle wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), a medium-depth peel, is typically used to treat problems with pigmentation, subtle surface wrinkles and shallow blemishes. Compared to a phenol peel, results are generally less dramatic and do not last as long. Recovery time is also usually shorter.
More than one peel may be necessary to obtain optimal results.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

When performed by a skilled, knowledgeable physician, chemical peel procedures are generally safe; however, some risks, including infection and scarring may occur.

Patients may experience redness, irritation, stinging and crusting after an AHA peel. However, these side effects will diminish as the treated area adjusts to the peel.

TCA peels may cause skin discoloration.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE FOLLOWING SKINCARE TREATMENT?

Following a TCA peel, you should avoid exposure to the sun for several months, to protect the newly developed layers of skin. As a result, you will always have to protect the treated area from the sun.
