A chemical peel is designed to remove the damaged upper layer of your skin in order to reveal the smoother, finer texture of the skin beneath it. When chemical peels are performed by a skilled professional – such as our experienced aestheticians here at Facial Aesthetics –they can safely minimize wrinkles and improve your skin tone.

Chemical peels side effects are rare, but can include mild redness, irritation, and peeling. However, these effects usually only last for a few days. The stronger the chemical peel, the longer you can expect your recovery to take. As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks like scarring and permanent pigment change, which is why we will ask you for your complete medical history before treatment. If you have a tendency to scar, recurring cold sores or fever blisters, or a history of heart disease, all of these factors must be taken into consideration before we can determine whether or not a chemical peel is right for you.

At Facial Aesthetics, our medically safe chemical peel programs are designed with your well-being in mind. Before your peel, we will customize a skin care regimen for you to perform at home every day. This will help prepare your skin for the medical peel on the day of your procedure, as well as contribute to the longevity of your results. We will closely examine your skin to determine which of our six different peel types would work best.

If you have further questions about chemical peels, we can answer all of them during a free initial consultation. Please contact Facial Aesthetics today to schedule your Denver skin care consultation. We serve patients throughout the metro area.
