Chemical Peels Q & A

How does a chemical peel work?

During a chemical peel, Rhiannon applies a chemical solution to your skin, causing your outer layer of skin to slough off. Dull, old cells are removed, prompting the reveal of fresh, new skin and a boost in collagen production. The result left behind is smoother, less wrinkled skin that’s healthier and more resilient.

Chemical peels are available in a variety of intensities. A superficial peel results in mild exfoliation and improves minor skin imperfections. Medium-intensity peels can address deeper lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and acne scars. Deep peels are the most thorough, removing damaged skin cells and address moderate to severe lines, age spots, and scarring – resulting in a dramatic change in skin appearance.

Rhiannon evaluates your skin goals, and together you decide the peel that’s right for your needs.

Who should consider a chemical peel?

If you have any of the following skin concerns, a chemical peel may be right for you.

  • Acne scars
  • Melasma and/or hyperpigmentation
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Age spots
  • Sagging, aging skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Rhiannon carefully examines your skin type and goals to determine how a peel can help you.

What is the VI Peel®?

Rhiannon offers the VI Peel to patients who desire:

  • To smooth away rough skin texture
  • An evener skin tone
  • A softening of fine lines and wrinkles

VI Peels are effective at addressing the effects aging has on your skin. Improvements in lax, pigmented, and rough skin are evident in as few as seven days. You experience maximum results with minimal downtime.

Do chemical peels hurt?

When first applied to your skin, the chemicals may cause some stinging.

A chemical peel isn’t especially painful but can cause immediate side effects such as redness, swelling, and crusting following treatment. The degree of recovery and post-peel healing depends on the degree of peel you receive; milder peels result in less redness and crusting.

Rhiannon gives you a complete post-treatment plan to help you heal efficiently and effectively. She wants you to experience fresh, smooth skin as quickly as possible.
