Chemical Peels Lehi Utah

Chemical Peels is a cosmetic treatment that uses a customizable chemical solution topically applied to treat skin concerns like acne, fine lines and wrinkles, certain scarring, and uneven skin tone and texture. Performed in a clinical setting, a chemical peel will benefit the skin and restore a youthful appearance and glow while combating dermatological issues. Chemical peels are versatile based on your personal needs; the solution prepared can include various ingredients specifically selected to address the skin problems you’re experiencing. Adult men and women are candidates for this treatment.

Though a chemical peel is generally thought of as a facial procedure, other areas can benefit from this treatment. The complete list of chemical peel treatment areas includes:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Smoothed skin tone
  • Improved skin texture
  • Clearer skin
  • Skin tightening
  • Increased collagen production
  • Increased elasticity
  • Breakout prevention
  • Balanced skin tone
  • Wrinkle and line reduction
  • Improved skin firmness

First, you will have a consultation to determine what strength of chemical peel is appropriate for your needs. There are three types including light, medium, and deep. Only the deep peel requires a local anaesthetic. Otherwise, the procedure is quick and conducted by brushing the chemical solution onto the treatment area and applying a neutralizing agent upon completion. Light and medium peels are generally not considered painful by most clients.  Depending on the strength of your peel, side effects and downtime will range from 0 to 3 weeks; that is, a light peel requires almost no recovery period, a medium peel may have a recovery period up to 2 weeks; and a deep peel may take up to 3 weeks to recover.
