CHEMICAL PEELS IN RIVERSIDE, CA
What Are Chemical Peels?
Bloom Aesthetics Riverside provides you with several excellent chemical peel options. Your customized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you more radiant skin. At our Riverside, CA office, our staff offers chemical peel treatments that help to solve skin abnormalities, including wrinkles, fine lines, scars, rough patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels clear away dead or damaged skin cells by applying a personalized peel on your skin, which causes the upper layer to peel off. As your skin recovers and starts to rejuvenate and repair itself, you will notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel facial is a noninvasive method to make your complexion luminous and is appropriate for the face and neck.
In our Riverside, CA office, we offer chemical peels on a few levels (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate our patients’ skin care goals.
Light peels: You can receive a light peel on a lunch break and return back to your day. This type of peel will remove the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a more radiant appearance and softer texture. We usually recommend that you get a light treatment about once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of peel goes deeper into your skin, and you’ll usually decide to have this type of facial treatment over an extended weekend. You may also want to ready yourself for more discomfort during and up to an hour following the chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have deeper damage to their skin, like deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of chemical peels is the deep chemical peel, and it does require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that may leave your face itchy, peeling, and swollen for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who have a deep chemical peel typically have age or dark spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, and deep-seated scars. Since this strength of peel is generally uncomfortable for most patients, your aesthetician may provide you with an anesthetic prior to your peel.
What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
According to the intensity of your peel, you may discover a mixture of these upsides from your session at Bloom Aesthetics Riverside:
- Minimization of pores and different skin imperfections
- Minimization of wrinkles and aging marks
- Evened and calmed skin tone
- Hydrated, rejuvenated skin texture
Am I A Candidate for Chemical Peels?
Getting the recommendations of an aesthetic specialist is the first step in the journey to smooth, healthy skin. A team member at Bloom Aesthetics Riverside can evaluate your skin in an exam in our Riverside, CA office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for optimal results. Chemical peel patients, both women and men, typically have noticeable issues with their skin like scaly patches, hyperpigmentation, flaky skin, sun spots, fine lines, and much more. We can recommend multiple levels of chemical peels to meet your needs and goals.
What to Expect from Chemical Peels
Based on the strength of the chemical peel you receive, you should expect the treated area to itch and peel from several days to a couple of weeks. A member of our team will discuss ways to care for your skin during your consultation. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches during the recovery, it is never helpful to pick the skin off. You may cause scarring to your skin!
