ABOUT ZO Stimulator CHEMICAL PEELS
To provide the best results from chemical peel treatments, LCS Medical Spa provides you with numerous options. Your professional facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will give you healthier, smoother skin. At our Seguin, TX office near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio, Austin TX, our medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon and Aestheticians offer chemical peel treatments that help minimize skin irregularities such as wrinkles, scars, fine lines, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels dissolve damaged, dead skin cells with a special treatment on your skin, which causes the visible layer to peel off. As your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you will notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive option to make your skin luminous and may be used for the face and neck.
VARIATIONS OF CHEMICAL PEELS
At our Seguin, TX office near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio, Austin TX, we offer chemical peels in several strengths (light, medium, and deep) to accommodate our patients’ skincare needs and goals.
Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel on a lunch hour and go right back to your day. This type of peel will remove the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your facial features a brighter appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you schedule a light peel at least once a month for the best results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of chemical peel goes deeper into your skin, and you’ll usually prefer to do this type of facial rejuvenation treatment over a long weekend. You may also want to prepare yourself for more discomfort during and about an hour after treatment. Medium-depth peels are for patients who have significant damage to their skin like deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep peel, and it will require the longest recovery time. This is an aggressive treatment that may leave your face itchy, swollen, and peeling for a few weeks. Patients who have a deep peel may have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, entrenched acne scars, and/or deep-seated scars. As this type of peel is generally uncomfortable for most patients, we may provide you with an anesthetic as a part of your treatment.
