Chemical Peels (Chemexfoliation)

Chemical peels are a quick, convenient and effective way to revitalize dull or damaged skin. At the Vein Care Center, board-certified physician Dr. Manu B Aggarwal and her experienced team perform chemical peels to help patients restore and improve their skin health and quality. For patients in Lima, Celina, Findlay and beyond in Ohio, the Vein Care Center offers various minimally invasive procedures to help you reveal your healthiest, smoothest and most radiant complexion.

When the face loses its youthful, natural glow, it can diminish your entire appearance. Sun exposure, harmful toxins and the natural aging process can gradually make your skin look dull, worn or tired. A chemical peel, or chemexfoliation, is designed to refresh your profile by removing the outermost layer of skin to reveal new, healthier tissue. At the Vein Care Center, chemical peels are performed by Dr. Aggarwal, or our professional nurses Kendra and Robin, to help patients reduce blemishes, rejuvenate their skin and achieve a brighter, more youthful profile.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that works by exfoliating the skin’s surface to reduce imperfections, smoothen skin texture and restore overall skin health. The procedure uses a safe chemical solution to clear away dead and damaged cells from the outer layer of skin and expose healthier tissue underneath. By stimulating cell turnover, this treatment helps to soften the effects of age and sun damage and reveal a cleansed, refreshed layer of skin. Chemical peels vary in strength, from light superficial peels to deeper and more aggressive ones, and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.

At the Vein Care Center, we offer three types of medical-grade peels from the award-winning Skinceuticals range: gel peels, micro-peels for sensitive skin, and the 20/30 peel. In your consultation, Dr. Aggarwal or one of her expert nurses will examine your skin type and cosmetic needs to determine which formula will most effectively address your concerns. Based on this examination, your procedure will be customized to your needs to ensure personalized and satisfying results.

What Concerns Can Be Treated?

Chemical peels boast a myriad of benefits for patients seeking to rejuvenate their skin. Since there are various formulations available, the procedure can be tailored specifically to your needs and concerns. Some of the most common issues treated with chemexfoliation include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Facial redness
  • Skin discoloration and pigmentary issues
  • Facial and acne scarring
  • Blemishes and imperfections
  • Dull, damaged or worn skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture

How is a Chemical Peel Performed?

The chemical peel application will depend on your skin type, the type of peel used, the concentration of the solution, and the skin’s reactivity to treatment. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and numbing cream may be applied if necessary. During a chemical peel, a predetermined quantity of the solution is applied to the targeted area for a specified amount of time. The chosen formula interacts with the outer layer of skin to efficiently dissolve the surface cells and reveal smoother, healthier skin underneath. Most patients experience a tingling or stinging sensation during the procedure, through this mild discomfort generally subsides once the solution has been neutralized. Chemicals peels are performed in-office and take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.

Types of Chemical Peels

The type of peel used will depend on your skin type, sensitivity and the extent of exfoliation required to address your concerns. Whether you’re seeking to soften under-eye wrinkles or achieve a more even skin tone, there is a chemical solution designed specifically for your needs. The types of chemical peels available fall into one of the following categories:

Superficial or Light Peels

These peels usually contain alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acids. Light chemical peels can generally be performed in a lunch hour and require no downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily routine immediately without noticeable signs of treatment. With regular sessions, a light peel can deliver the results of a medium or deep peel, without the need to take time out for recovery.

Medium Peels

These peels are typically composed of trichloroacetic acid and glycolic acid, which are designed to remove a few more layers of skin than light peels. There will be noticeable downtime with a medium peel.

Deep Peels

Deep peels can dramatically improve your complexion, but are often very aggressive. Deep peels require a more extensive recovery process, which can be uncomfortable, though the outcome is highly satisfying and may last for years.

At your Vein Care Center, we offer light peels to our patients, as this can help you achieve outstanding results, without the same level of risk or downtime as a medium or deep peel. Lighter peels are also suitable for all skin types and tones. For patients who desire even more transformative results, our skin experts can help you design a custom treatment plan that combines light peels with the other treatments that we offer, including laser treatments and microneedling with radiofrequency – that also do not require downtime.

What to Expect After A Chemical Peel

We perform light peels, which do not require any downtime. However, to ensure you get the best possible results from your treatment, Dr. Aggarwal will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to ensure you are prepared for what to expect and how to care for your skin during recovery. From recommending the right sunscreen to ensure the newly formed skin is well-protected, to a moisturizer that can ease the look of flaking skin as the dead cells are sloughed off, we will ensure you are well-prepared with a good post-peel skin regimen.
