Aging can bring about several changes in your skin, especially in your face. At Artistic Contours, we want to help you feel and look young and energetic as long as you want to, which is why our cosmetic surgeons offer chemical peels in Warwick, Rhode Island. Chemical peels are specifically designed to remove signs of aging and restore your skin’s youthful, tight appearance. If you have questions about chemical peels, and if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mo Banki and Dr. Frank Paletta, we welcome you to contact us today at 401.732.1440.
Chemical peels are treatments specifically designed to reduce signs of aging and restore your skin’s naturally young look. Chemical peels are considered outpatient procedures, which means that you will be allowed to return home when your treatment is complete. In order to perform a chemical peel treatment, our Doctor received specialized training. This ensures that your treatment remains safe and effective.
To carry out a chemical peel treatment, our Doctor will carry out the following steps:
- Clean and wash the facial skin thoroughly
- Apply the chemical solution in small areas. In some cases, our Doctor may apply multiple solutions.
By applying a chemical solution to specific areas of the skin, our Doctor can create a controlled blister that will peel off, revealing newer, smoother, and tighter skin underneath. When the solution is first applied, some patients may experience a tingling or burning sensation for the first several minutes. To soothe any discomfort, you may apply cold compressed to the inflicted areas. Our Doctor will provide any additional recommendation for post-operation care.
After you have received a chemical peel, it is important that you protect your new skin. Because the newer skin is hypersensitive to the sun, be sure to wear sunscreen of at least 30 SPF until directed otherwise. Our Doctor may also recommend using an at-home regimen to further protect your new skin and maintain long-lasting results.
