Chemical Peel in Scottsdale, AZ

What are Chemical Face Peels?

Men and women work to retain healthy, young-looking skin. However, time, sun exposure and other natural elements and life habits sometimes cause the skin to look less than perfect. Chemical peels in Scottsdale, AZ can help to change that. Chemical peels are topically applied acids that help to create a uniform and controlled shedding of several layers of skin. The level of exfoliation varies by product and is controlled by your aesthetician at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics.

Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale will conduct a pre-treatment consultation where we can discuss your medical history, goals, concerns, and expectations. With this information, we can help you determine if a chemical peel is right for you.

What Should I Expect after Chemical Face Peels?

Results from your medical-grade chemical peel treatment in Scottsdale will vary depending on the level of peel you have chosen. They include improvements in texture and skin tone, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and clearer, brighter skin overall. Results are typically noticeable as soon as the skin heals, and with a healthy at-home skincare regime and diligent attention to the guidelines provided by Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics, they can last six months to a year. For deeper results, some chemical peel treatments can be repeated as often as every three to four weeks. Discuss your goals and concerns with our aestheticians to determine a safe and effective personalized treatment plan.

What Does a Chemical Face Peels Treatment Consist of?

Chemical peels are relatively safe outpatient procedures. Little preparation is necessary in advance of your treatment. To protect your skin and prepare it for the peel, avoid direct sun exposure for about two weeks prior to your treatment. If you do spend time in the sun, use an SPF 30 or above sunscreen. Two weeks before your treatment, begin using Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics recommended products. One week prior to your procedure, stop using any hair removal products (with the exception of shaving). Also, discontinue using any exfoliating products, loofahs and other abrasive cleansing techniques. On the day of your procedure, do not shave or use any at-home glycolic products. Come to our office with a clean face, free of makeup.

Your chemical peel at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale will take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the area being treated, which product is used and whether your peel is superficial, medium or deep. Products used by our aestheticians include the Melanage Skin Brightening System, Zo Chemical Peel, VI Chemical Peel, Illuminize Peel and Rejuvenize Peel. We will determine the best product for your specific needs and discuss this with you at your consultation. During your treatment, the skin is cleansed, and then the acid peel is applied to the area being treated using a soft brush or gauze. The solution stays on the skin, usually for about 15 minutes. Some clients experience a burning sensation during treatment, but this is usually easily managed with topical anesthetic applied before your treatment begins. The solution is then neutralized using iced saline. Your skin will then be covered with a moisturizing ointment to promote healing.

After your peel, the skin will temporarily feel dry and irritated and it is often red in appearance. Peeling is also common and indicates the treatment is working and removing the upper layer of dead skin. Treat your skin gently. Avoid any rough scrubbing, and use a soft touch when applying moisturizer or other products. Wear sunscreen, and limit your time outdoors. Do not pick at our pull the flaking skin. This can cause scarring and unnecessary redness or irritation. Avoid exposure to heat and intense activity or anything that makes you sweat. The use of any kind of retinol skincare products should also be avoided.
