Salem Chemical Peel Treatment
A Salem chemical peel treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, silky and beautiful! Best of all, this is a non-surgical procedure, which means you don’t have to be put under general anesthesia or stay overnight in a hospital. The process itself is very easy, though you will need to take extra good care of your skin for the next few months since it will be fragile.
Let’s learn more about a Salem chemical peel and what this cosmetic procedure can do for you!
How is a Chemical Peel Done?
The reason why this procedure is called a “chemical peel” is because a chemical solution is applied to the skin so that it blisters and falls off. What’s left behind is a brand new layer of skin that is smoother and less wrinkled. For your convenience, a Salem chemical peel treatment can be done directly in our office. Here is what to expect.
- Your skin will be cleaned gently.
- A chemical solution will be applied to the skin, which usually contains one or more of the following: glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid or carbolic acid.
- During the chemical peel in Salem OR, you may feel burning or tingling. This is the skin reacting to the chemicals.
- After the procedure, you can use cool compresses and pain medication to manage pain. Bandages may also be applied where the skin was treated.
What About After the Salem Chemical Peel?
Your skin will be fragile following the procedure. Many people report that it feels like they are sunburned for the first few days, but this usually ends in 3-7 days. You can have additional mild chemical peels to achieve your look but deep peels cannot be done until at least 6-12 months later. Over time, your skin will heal from the chemical peel treatment in Salem OR and offer an improved look that is free of wrinkles, scarring and age spots.
