As we go through the aging process, sun damage and age spots become a common dilemma. Thankfully, a chemical peel can be used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face while reducing or eliminating these imperfections. A chemical solution that removes the dead skin cells is applied and new skin regenerates that is smoother and free of many imperfections that were previously there.
Most age spots are caused by exposing the skin to direct sunlight. The sun rays break down the proteins, collagen and elastin fibers within our skin, which support the structure of the skin and make it healthy. To defend itself, the skin uses pigments in the form of tanning and brown spots. After years of sun exposure, the skin begins to sag, discolor and brown spots begin to form.
Chemical peels can help in reducing the appearance of age spots, fine line and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, dead skin cells and enlarged pores. When the deeper skin is exposed, new collagen is formed resulting in a healthier, more youthful appearance.
When you have a consultation with our specialist, your skin will be examined and your concerns discussed. Our medical team would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have with the treatment. The type of chemical peel we use depends on the characteristics of your skin and your desired results. Here at the Med and Spa we offer multiple kinds of chemical peels, from lighter lunchtime peels to medium depth peels, like the Vi Peel®.
The procedure can be done in the comfort of our office in Burr Ridge. Procedure times will vary depending on which chemical peel is deemed right for your skin issues. After the procedure, your face may feel like it has been sunburned. This means that your skin is beginning the healing process, and this will resolve itself within a few days.
