What are Chemical Peels?

To provide the best results from chemical peel treatments, Lynch Vein & Aesthetics provides you with numerous choices. Your professional chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids) can give you healthier, smoother skin. At our Peoria, AZ office, Dr. Matthew Lynch and his skilled team offer chemical peel treatments that alleviate skin irregularities like wrinkles, fine lines, scars, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels remove dead, damaged skin cells by applying a specific peel on the skin that causes the upper layer to slough off. When your skin heals and begins to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should see a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical method to make your skin bright and may be used for the neck and face.

What Are the Variations of Chemical Peels?

At our Peoria, AZ office, we offer chemical peels in multiple strengths (light, medium, and deep) to meet our patients' skincare goals.

Light peels: You can have a light peel during your lunch break and return to your routine. This peel will remove the outer layer of skin (the epidermis), giving your facial features a brighter appearance and smoother texture. We typically suggest that you schedule a light treatment around once a month for the best glowing results.

Medium-depth peels: This strength reaches deeper into your skin, and you'll usually decide to have this type of facial treatment during a long weekend. You may also prefer to prepare yourself for increased discomfort during and about one hour after treatment. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have deeper damage to their skin, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation problems.

Deep peels: The strongest of the three chemical peel types is the deep peel, requiring the most recovery time. This aggressive procedure may leave your face peeling, itchy, and swollen for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who get a deep peel typically have age or dark spots, sun damage, prominent acne scars, and/or deep scars. As this type of chemical peel is generally uncomfortable for most patients, your Dr. Lynch or aesthetician may provide mild anesthesia as a part of your peel.

How Are Chemical Peels Performed?

During your procedure at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we will have you lie comfortably to administer your treatment. We will clean the skin before applying the personalized solution to your treatment areas. We will spread the solution onto your face and allow it to work for a specific time that will be discussed during your chemical peel planning session. Finally, we will wash the peel off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients should bring light sunscreen and a hat to wear outside following the peel to avoid UV exposure.

What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

Based on the strength of the peel, may experience several of the following perks from a chemical peel at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics:

  • Evened and calmed skin tone
  • Diminished pores and other skin imperfections
  • Reduction in facial creases and signs of aging
  • Moisturized, improved skin texture

Chemical peel FAQs

How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Lynch will discuss costs during your consultation, as soon as we create your personalized chemical peel. The cost can vary based on the intensity you select. Our team accepts many payment methods, and we strive to make these appointments affordable for every budget. Ask us about our financing options and current specials today.

What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The answer depends on your unique skin issues and aesthetic goals. At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we may consider factors such as age, skin type, desired results, and how long you can spend in recovery. Initially, it may be better to start with a less intense peel and gradually increase the intensity as needed. This allows your skin to acclimate and reduces the risk of adverse reactions.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the peel selected, you may have some discomfort afterward. If you get a lighter peel, you may feel some stinging, but this goes away quickly. Medium and deep peels are good for deeper skin damage and offer results that last a long time but are typically more uncomfortable. Our Peoria, AZ, staff can recommend soothing ointments to help you feel better during recovery.
