Plastic surgery is not something most people think they will want or need. then, you start aging. while some of us age gracefully, some of us do not. sometimes you get undesirable age spots, or perhaps you have acne, freckles, or fine lines. have you ever considered trying to get those chicken pox scars removed?
A chemical peel is available over the counter. Perhaps you even have a friend who tells you how easy it is. maybe for them it was. Perhaps it would even be just as easy for you. it is recommended that you seek the advice of your doctor before you try to do this at home. even if you just want to be sure you’re not allergic to any of the chemicals you might introduce to your skin. so what does a chemical peel accomplish?
A chemical peel is when you use chemicals to cause your skin to blister. it is similar to sunburn. the skin underneath is going to have less visible scarring and hopefully give you a better appearance. A chemical peel is done to face, neck or hands. this will be done as outpatient plastic surgery. First they will wash excess oils from your skin. Caution will be taken with eyes and hair. A combination of chemicals will be applied to your skin. the skin will begin to blister and peel as though it has sunburn. during the chemical peel some patients feel stinging and burning. Some chemical peels will be done with pain relief. sometimes it is appropriate to just have a cool compress. Now what happens once you have this fabulous sunburned look?
As the skin peels new skin is visible. the effect is a more pleasing appearance. it will be vital that you use sunscreen, as this skin will be quite sensitive to actual sun exposure. Some patients may be prone to scarring, and sometimes you will find that you have some discoloration. Fair skinned, fair haired people tend to be the most responsive. while someone with a darker complication can have great results, uneven skin tone is more likely.
While most of the reasons people want chemical peels are cosmetic it is not only a cosmetic procedure. Chemical peels can help remove pre cancerous cells. These growths are not likely to grow back on the regenerated skin. your surgeon will discuss your reasons and expectations. You are a peel away from fresher, more vibrant, perhaps healthier skin.
