If you are seeking a way to revive the appearance of your skin without painful surgeries, there are few options able to deliver the results that chemical peels can. It is a relatively quick treatment option that works much like an intense facemask to diminish lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. If you want vibrant, beautiful skin, here at Texas Laser and Aesthetics in Austin, TX, we can help!
How Often Should You Get Chemical Peels?
This is going to be different for each person depending on the results that they want, the age of the skin, and other factors. On average, most people can safely have this treatment every 4 to 6 weeks. However, it is important to note that you should always take the advice of our staff when it concerns how long you should wait in between treatments so that you and your skin are getting the most benefits.
The Great Benefits of Treatment
There are a ton of great benefits for the skin that this treatment offers. Not only can these treatment options help skin look and feel better, but they can also aid in dealing with a number of skin concerns to help you look and feel your best. Let’s outline a few!
Shrinks Enlarged Pores
Enlarged pores can be an issue for many people and they are usually the result of dirt, oil, and other residue being trapped deep in the pores. This treatment is going to clear out those pores resulting in any enlarged pores being shrunken down significantly.
Helps with Acne Scarring & Sun Damage
Scars left behind on the surface of the skin from previous acne issues can be a pain to get rid of. This treatment can really fade the look of any scarring! It can also help get rid of any sun damage that caused discoloration or “age spots” on the skin as well.
Fades Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Many people decide to have this treatment because of how well it can fade the appearance of any fine lines or wrinkles especially around the eyes, the mouth, and on the forehead. This treatment can help fade mild to even severe fine lines and wrinkles. Most people with mild wrinkles even see that their wrinkles are erased altogether following this treatment!
Brightens Dull Skin
Dull skin is an issue that many people also struggle with. No matter how much moisturizer or serums they use, the skin just seems to remain dull. This is likely because there are so many dead skin cells left on the surface of the skin, preventing the radiant skin underneath from coming to the surface. This treatment can make even the dullest skin bright and radiant again!
Delivers Younger-Looking Skin
If you want your skin to appear younger, there are few treatment options that can deliver what a peel can. It is going to make skin appear firmer, plumper and eliminate many of the most common signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, and discoloration due to “age spots.”
This treatment is also going to boost the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. Collagen is what keeps skin firm and plump. It can do this because it promotes the deeper layers of the skin to produce more collagen, giving you younger-looking, healthier skin!
Evens Out the Texture & Tone of the Skin
Uneven skin tone and texture is another issue that a lot of people struggle with and using only at-home options can take forever if they even work at all. This treatment will take care of any redness or otherwise uneven skin tone and give you an even, glowing complexion. It will also smooth out any rough and bumpy skin, leaving you with smooth skin.
Does This Treatment Hurt? No, this is not a treatment that is going to be an invasive or a surgical one. It is simply a peel that is applied to the surface of the skin and then left on for a period of time before it is “peeled” away. Our staff will make sure that you experience no pain or discomfort during your treatment session. This is not a treatment that is going to cause any pain.
Is This a Safe Treatment Option?
Absolutely! This type of treatment has been being performed for a long time and has been totally perfected to be safe for you and your skin. If you are in fear of the safety of you or your skin, don’t be!
How Long Does a Treatment Session Take?
Most peels take about 30 minutes in total. Yes, just 30 minutes! When you consider all of the amazing benefits for you and your skin as a result of this treatment option, 30 minutes is certainly not a long time!
How Do I Know That This Is a Good Treatment Option for Me?
If you are a person who wants to revive dull skin, deal with fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone or texture, or otherwise want to have beautiful, glowing skin, it is safe to assume that this is a great treatment option for you to consider! But, just to be sure, during your consultation, let our staff know all about your goals and expectations so they can let you know if this treatment is going to be able to get you there!
When Will I See My Results?
This may be different for each person depending on a number of variables but most people will begin to see their results in the week following their treatment session but it may take up to 14 days or so before you are going to see the full results. Either way, you do not have to wait for a long period of time before you get to see your newly invigorated skin!
How Long Will My Results Last?
Most people will see their results lasting for 4 to 6 months and sometimes even longer. However, it is important to note that there are some people who may see their results fading more quickly than that and that will depend on the age of the skin, how you care for your skin, and other factors. Either way, once you do notice your results fading, you can have another peel to maintain those results.
Is This a Treatment That Is Only for Women?
No, this is a treatment option for any person who wants to rejuvenate the appearance of their skin without surgery. More men are deciding to have this treatment and others like it to also deal with the same skin concerns that women have like signs of aging, uneven skin tone, discoloration, acne scarring, and more! Anyone who wants refreshed skin can enjoy the benefits of this treatment!
Is This Treatment Good for the Skin?
Yes, this treatment option is actually good for the skin because it promotes collagen production and encourages the growth of fresh, new skin tissue to form. It is going to help your skin look healthier, feeling smooth, and appear younger. It is not a treatment that is going to cause negative effects to the skin so it is actually good for it!
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
You will come in for your treatment session where our staff will prep you which involves cleansing the skin deeply. The peel will then be applied over the surface of your skin and our experts will ensure that it is applied evenly so that you get the best results. The peel will be left on your skin for a period of time and then carefully removed. Then, you are free to go on with your day and await your amazing results!
Does This Really Work?
Yes, this is not a treatment option that is going to make promises it does not deliver on like a lot of passing fads. This treatment has been being used and perfected for many years and there are lots of great before and after pictures that further detail the power of this treatment option. There is also a lot of science to back up that this treatment does indeed work.
Can It Cause Lasting Damage to My Skin?
Of course not! This treatment has been formulated and designed to improve the skin, not damage it. You do not have to be concerned about lasting damage to your skin as it will look better than ever after your treatment session! There is no risk of lasting damage whatsoever.
Can It Help With Deeper Wrinkles & Fine Lines?
If you do have what you consider deeper lines and wrinkles, this treatment can still help. Because it boosts collagen production, it is going to help smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even the deeper ones. However, during your consultation, you should let our experts know what your goals are so they can keep you informed throughout the process and ensure this treatment is going to be able to meet your expectations.
Can I Do This Myself at Home?
Even if it were possible for you to get your hands on the necessary tools, it would be highly unwise to attempt this type of treatment on your own. Our staff is highly trained on exactly how to use this treatment so that you not only get all of the benefits but that it is also safe. Trying to do this yourself could result in skin damage and a lot of pain.
When it comes to this treatment and to others like it, it is always a smarter choice for both you and your skin to let the professionals do it. You would not want to hurt yourself, your skin or not get all of the amazing benefits that are possible from this treatment option. For your safety, do not try anything like this at yourself at home.
