Types of Chemical Peels
ZO Controlled Depth Peel®
The ZO Controlled Depth Peel (CDP) is a highly advanced, in office chemical peel that can restore healthier and more beautiful skin to the face, neck, chest, and hands of our Fort Worth and Weatherford patients. The CDP can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions, such as uneven pigmentation, shallow acne scars, sun-damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and freckling. Although some results may be seen right away, patients will continue to experience gradual improvements up to 30 – 40 days following treatment, as new healthy and vibrant skin replaces the old. During this time, the texture of the skin will become firmer, cleaner, smoother, healthier and younger-looking. The ZO Controlled Depth Peel provides maximum skin tightening benefits. It is safe and can be customized to each patient’s unique skin care needs and the current condition of their skin. For example, patients who wish to remove minor skin blemishes and improve skin tone may require 1 – 2 layers of the CDP. To treat moderate to severe skin damage, our experienced skin care providers may recommend all 3 layers and a series of multiple CDP sessions to correct damage over several months.
Obagi Radiance Peel®
Used to improve a range of skin types and skin concerns, including photodamage, the Obagi Radiance Peel is a salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel provides tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin instantly. With little to no downtime, this peel exfoliates and helps improve texture, tone, and overall complexion after just one use, or reveals your best results from a series of 4 – 6 peels.
The process for applying a chemical peel is generally the same for each type, but will vary slightly depending on the level of solution being applied. Anesthesia is not used during this procedure. However, it may be considered for Phenol peels. First, the face is thoroughly cleaned. Then, the chemical agent is then brushed on to the skin. Patients will experience some mild stinging at this time. The face is then washed and a cool saline compress is applied to act as a neutralizer. Patients will need to wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure as much as possible.
Chemical Peels FAQs
A chemical peel does not hurt. However, it may cause some discomfort. Most patients will feel tingling and a slight burning sensation, which will subside shortly after the procedure has been completed. Phenol peels result in a greater degree of discomfort, but the practitioner should plan for this before the procedure begins.
It is very common to combine a chemical peel with another procedure. Microdermabrasion is one such procedure that provide effective results when combined with a peel. This will be considered a combination program that can be repeated every six weeks.
There are many alternatives to consider. Individuals looking to reduce fine lines, blotchiness and other mild skin conditions may benefit from a chemical peel, which removes dead skin cells and accelerates the generation of new skin. If deep wrinkles are the issue, a Phenol peel may help, but patients may also want to consider another treatment such as BOTOX or Dysport.
