Professional Chemical Peels In Milwaukee
Medical Spa Chemical Peels For All Skin Types
Professional chemical peels can be done on the face, neck or hands. An esthetician will apply a chemical solution to a small area of your skin to create a controlled wound that will then blister off and allow new skin to resurface.
- Acne skin: Kill the bacterium that causes acne with a chemical peel containing salicylic acid.
- Mature skin: Reduce wrinkles and fine lines with a hydrating chemical peel rich in vitamin C and anti-oxidants.
- Sensitive skin: Get that youthful glow back with a lactic acid chemical peel for sensitive skin. Lactic acid is the weakest chemical used in peels, is non-abrasive and won’t aggravate skin that is already experiencing heightened activity. Some sensitive skin can tolerate the glow from a weak glycolic acid peel also.
- Hyperpigmentation: Diminish the appearance of scars and pigmented lesions with a glycolic acid chemical peel. Also, ask your esthetician about lightening creams you can add to your at home care.
Benefits of Getting a Professional Chemical Peel
Chemical Peel Recovery & Side Effects
After a chemical peel, the skin will be very sensitive to sunlight. Wear a "broad-spectrum" sunscreen (one that protects against UVA and UVB rays) of at least 30 SPF. The skin may also feel a slight burning similar to a sunburn, with a little peeling for up to a week after. Depending on the treatment, you may need little or no down time.
