Various factors such as aging and sun damage can make the skin appear blotchy, rough, wrinkled, or dull. An effective non-surgical method to rejuvenate the skin is chemical peels.

Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and types. These peels should be administered by a skilled and experienced provider for safe and sustainable results.

Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain provides a range of chemical peels to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding communities.

Superficial Peels

People with minor skin issues may be recommended to use superficial peels. These kinds of peels can be administered on all types of skin with negligible risk of complications. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, and does not involve anesthesia. Further, it causes little to no discomfort during and post-treatment.

A practice that offers superficial peels will usually make use of a mild type of glycolic acid. The healing happens fast after the treatment with no need for downtime in a majority of the cases. The skin can turn pink for certain duration of time, but this can be hidden using make-up until it is fully healed.

Medium Peels

While these peels are also carried out on an outpatient basis, they typically involve some amount of downtime. The peeling agent most commonly used for medium peels is TCA acid. This chemical goes deeper into the skin than a superficial peel. The patient can use makeup after about a week when the skin has healed adequately.

There is minimal discomfort or pain after the peel procedure. The skin turns reddish brown in the areas that are treated in about two or three days and subsequently becomes flaky. Peeling and flaking will happen over the next few days to unveil younger, brighter skin.

Deep Peels

For candidates seeking significant skin improvement without surgery, deep peels provide maximum strength treatments. These peels contain stronger concentrations of TCA that remove the uppermost layers of the skin. The growth of new skin takes approximately two weeks after a deep peel procedure.

A majority of the patients will need about a week or two off from work or social engagements. The redness in the skin will completely subside in three weeks in most cases. Complete results will be visible over several, and substantial improvements can be seen once the full results are established.

Advantages of Chemical Face Peels

Chemical peels are used to provide a radiant and more youthful look and improve blotchy, wrinkled, and sun damaged skin. The mild chemical peel enhances the skin texture, softens acne scars, and decreases damage caused by the sun.

The medium peel is also effective on acne. The medium peel also smoothes fine lines, and improves pigmentation issues such as age spots. The deep chemical peel can treat skin damaged by the sun, remove coarse and deep wrinkles, and eliminate pre-cancerous growths.

Guidelines for Patients

In many cases, the aesthetician will be able to offer appropriate treatment options for a tailored skincare routine involving facials. Sometimes they may also recommend a combination of treatments, depending on your needs.

The provider will also educate you about how and why a specific customized facial treatment may be beneficial for your skin. Once you can make the right choices, it will be easier to create and maintain your radiance after the customized facial treatment. The way to achieve a healthy, bright complexion is to understand which products work best for your skin.

Aging can affect the skin in various ways. Typical concerns include appearance of expression lines, loss of fat volume and bone structure, and sun damage.shutterstock_123714850

Nearly three-fourth of what we see in the mirror after the age of 50 is due to the damage caused by the sun. No single treatment can address all skin issues and types, and a cosmetic surgeon may advise an appropriate procedure for a particular patient.

Some skin treatments take time to have the desired effect. For instance, collagen-producing methods create optional results only at about six months. Outstanding and dignified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain provides a wide range of skin treatments to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding communities in this region of the southeast.

Customized Facials

Customized facials provide excellent relaxation and healthy skin therapy. Tailor-made to the patient’s specific requirements, these facials may offer deep cleansing, exfoliation, a treatment mask, hot towel steaming, and an invigorating massage of the face, neck, shoulders, and scalp.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels range from light to moderate strength and increase skin cell renewal, making the skin regenerate much quicker. Some of the stronger peels can dramatically decrease the appearance of dark spots, aging, acne, and scarring due to the accurately blended acids.

Enzyme Peels

Enzyme peels are milder than chemical peels, and use natural ingredients to eliminate dead skin cells on the surface to reveal a dazzling complexion. These treatments usually do not cause any peeling making them perfect for beautiful, smooth skin before a special occasion. Enzyme peels added to a facial.

Acne Treatment

This treatment commences with a therapeutic oxygenating mask to open pores and eliminate bacteria that cause acne. It is followed by extractions to remove any debris leaving the skin radiant and smooth.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a process involving manual exfoliation, and is painless with no downtime. This treatment sloughs away dead skin cells and helps soften acne scars and fine lines. Further, it can remove villous hairs or peach fuzz on the face. Dermaplaning can be followed by a chemical peel if needed.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a highly efficient exfoliation method that re-texturizes the skin surface. These treatments do not have downtime, and can soften fine lines, decrease enlarged pores, and renew dull complexions. In addition, mircroderabrasion helps the skin to absorb products better and provides it with a luminous glow.

Obagi Skin Care Products

Appropriate prescription skincare products can make the skin appear smoother, brighter, and firmer. Obagi provides a wide array of prescription-strength skin care products. The treatment provider can recommend one or more products that can help a patient restore or maintain natural radiance.

Obagi produces advanced products for every age and skin type. Products may range from skin rejuvenation systems and eye care to vitamin-based topical solutions.
