There are different types of chemical peel treatments. Each type contains a different combination of chemicals and is designed to reach different depths of your skin. Medium depth chemical peels are generally used for moderate photo aging, irregular pigmentation, acne treatment and smoothing of textural issues on your skin. At The K Spa, we understand the importance of developing a full skin care plan that includes preparation before you begin chemical peel treatments and follow-up skin care regimens after your peels.
Most patients see results from their very first medium depth chemical peels, but generally a treatment plan of three to six applications is recommended for the best results. These peels are effective on a number of different skin types and skin conditions. During the application you may feel some mild stinging as the chemicals begin to penetrate your skin. The entire peeling process usually lasts five to seven days, as the dead skin layers begin to peel off to expose the fresh layer of skin beneath.
Dr. Stong uses several different chemical peels in cosmetic skin treatments. One of the medium depth chemical peels which he has selected for use with our patients at The K Spa is the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel. This chemical peel has become a standard choice among plastic surgeons and elite medical day spas. Its chemical composition of lactic acid, salicylic acid, retinol and resorcinol is ideal for a medium depth chemical peel. It is also one of the chemical peels that is known to encourage collagen growth, a significant benefit when seeking to rejuvenate your skin and create a healthy, youthful appearance.
