Chemical Peel in Santa Monica – Skin Care Tip of the Week

Want your skin to look years younger? While the fountain of youth hasn’t been discovered yet, there are things you can do to make your skin appear more youthful without the aid of scalpels and bandages. A chemical peel is one of the quickest ways to restore youth and vitality to your face.

These treatments are used most commonly for the following:1. To eradicate fine wrinkles around the mouth and eyes
2. To reduce age spots, melasma and freckles
3. To treat mild to moderate acne

While chemical peels are appropriate for all skin types, they tend to work slightly better on individuals who are fair skinned.

Chemical peels are done right here in our office at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica. It is a quick procedure that requires no anesthesia. Your esthetician may suggest lotions to apply to your skin a few days before the chemical application. You may also have to abstain from medications like Renova, Retin-A or any others that contain glycolic acid.  Please call us for more information.

Once you arrive for your peel, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned before the chemical agent is applied. You may feel a slight burning or tightening sensation for about 10 minutes after this happens. We may recommend an over-the-counter pain medication and a cold compress if you experience minor discomfort post-procedure. You will also have to protect your skin from the sun after your peel.
