Chemical peels are a skin resurfacing technique that may help with uneven skin tone or texture cause by sun damage, age spots, genetics, and hormonal changes. This will help to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. A chemical will be placed on the desired area to penetrate deep into the skin and activate your body’s natural inflammatory response. This will allow the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce more collagen in the area, improving elasticity.
After a chemical peel, you can expect to have skin discoloration for 5-10 days. This procedure is not painful but skin discoloration and/or peeling may keep you out of work until it resolves. Charleston Plastic Surgery will provide make-up services at 10-14 days to help cover up any discolorations.
