Chemical peels rejuvenate the skin on the face, neck and decollete improving fine wrinkles, blemishes, uneven skin pigmentation and acne. Chemical peels accomplish this by exfoliating the superficial dead skin layers and stimulating collagen production. Highly skilled at administering chemical peels in Orange County & Newport Beach, Dr. Grover uses a trichloracetic acid (TCA) gel to peel the skin. Superficial and medium depth peels can be performed. No sedation or anesthetic is required because a gel is used.
There is no blue discoloration following the peel as with other techniques. The procedure takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Flaking or peeling will not occur for several days following the peel. Patients may prefer a series of several light peels to achieve their desired results, thereby eliminating any “downtime”. Sun avoidance is important. Pre-treatment with topical vitamin A may be required. Patients with olive or darker skin types may undergo light peels without difficulty.
Your rejuvenating Orange County chemical peel formula will be chosen specifically to match your current skin condition. Various formulas are available, from mild to deeper peels to restore and revitalize sun-damaged, aging skin.
Your custom chemical peel experience should be pleasant overall. You will lie comfortably on a treatment table, and your skin thoroughly cleansed to remove any oil that could inhibit the formula entering the top layer of your skin. The peel solution is then applied. The TCA gel may create a slight stinging sensation but is not particularly uncomfortable and requires no anesthetic. The gel is then removed, and an ointment applied.
A chemical peel can produce a remarkable improvement in skin tone, quality, and glow. Our chemical peels in Orange County have the following benefits for your skin:
The peeling process varies with the strength of the peel formula. With a medium TCA peel, you can expect the treated skin to begin to peel after about two to three days, and the peeling process to continue for about one week. After the peeling is completed, the newly revealed skin surface will appear slightly red, as if you have a sunburn, which fades as the days pass. During healing, it critical that you avoid sun exposure for one to two months to protect your fresh, new skin.
