Chemical Peels Bellevue
Because every individual has unique skin issues, skin care treatments must always be customized to suit the needs of the patient and to provide them with their desired results. However, there are some skin care treatments that offer universal beauty and health benefits.
Chemical peels are simple and highly effective treatments for exfoliating and cleansing the skin, providing it with essential nutrients, and stimulating the production of collagen and other essential proteins. This helps to revitalize your skin and restore its youthful glow and appearance.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
Chemical peels are composed of a special blend of different acids, alcohols, and other chemicals that have been carefully measured and blended to produce specific results. Some peels are specifically designed to exfoliate the skin to improve texture, while others may be used to improve the evenness and vibrancy of your skin tone.
The application of the chemical peel will vary depending on the type of peel you receive, but the process will normally begin with a gentle surface cleansing of the skin. The chemical peel will be prepared and then carefully applied to the face so that it is spread evenly and does not spread onto unwanted areas.
The peel will then be left on the face to dry. Some patients may experience a slight tingling or burning sensation, but this is to be expected and should not cause major discomfort. Once the peel has dried, it will be gently peeled off of the face and any excess residue will be cleaned.
Once the treatment is complete, you may notice some redness and irritation, but this is completely normal. The redness may last for up to a week, but this varies between patients. Once you have fully recovered from the treatment, you should see noticeable improvements in the texture, tone, health, and appearance of your skin.
