Following a chemical peel at Aria Medi Spa, your new skin will feel smoother and appear less wrinkled than ever before! At Aria MediSpa, chemical peels can performed on your face, neck, or hands. With our Sterling facials, our qualified medical professionals can reduce fine lines under your eyes and around your mouth, treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging, improve the appearance of mild scars, treat certain types of acne, reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills, improve the look and feel of your skin, as well as improving areas of sun damage. After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so we recommend that you wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. We always recommend that you limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Usually, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. Depending on the type of problem we are treating, you can also get good results if you have darker skin. You may, however, be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure. Skin sags, bulges, and severe wrinkles don’t respond well to chemical peels and may need other types of cosmetic procedures such as laser resurfacing, facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift, or soft tissue filler. Our doctor will consult with you to determine whether Sterling facials are the best option for you. We will want to know if you have any history of scarring, cold sores that keep coming back, or facial X-rays.
Before you get a chemical peel, our Sterling facials expert may ask you to stop taking certain drugs and prepare your skin by using other medications, such as Retin-A, Renova, or Glycolic acid. Antibiotics or antiviral drugs may also be prescribed. We will work closely with you and find out as much information as possible in order to determine the depth of your peel. This decision depends upon the condition of your skin. Come visit Aria MediSpa today to receive a chemical peel and other amazing aesthetic services.
