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.
Chemical peel treatment may be the solution for you if you feel like your complexion is making you look older than you are or are unhappy with acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, or dry and patchy skin. Certain medications and medical conditions may impact your ability to safely and effectively enjoy the benefits of a chemical peel in Scottsdale, AZ. 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. The information also helps us to decide which product to use and if a superficial, medium or deep peel is best for your needs.
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.
