Back to 30™ offers several advanced chemical peels at their Upstate South Carolina offices. These non-invasive treatments remove the top layer of damaged skin to reveal the healthier, unblemished skin below. In this way, they can help you achieve a glowing and more youthful complexion. Chemical peels can also address different types of skin damage, including acne scars, sunspots, and fine lines and wrinkles. These treatments can be performed with different products for varying effects. Our skilled team can help you choose the right peel, depending on your goals and the severity of your skin damage. They also know how to administer chemical peels safely.
A chemical peel can help remove damaged skin to reveal the healthier layers beneath.
Is a Chemical Peel Right for You?
During a chemical peel, a member of our team will apply a peel solution to your face. This safe, gentle product will be left on your skin for a carefully chosen amount of time, allowing the chemicals to penetrate upper, damaged skin cells. Your body's natural healing process will cause the top layer or layers of your skin to dry and slough off over the next few days. Damage and aesthetic blemishes are located in these top tissues. As the old skin is removed, the smoother, younger skin beneath can be revealed.
You may be a candidate for a chemical peel if you want to cosmetic concerns such as:
- Dull skin
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Uneven pigmentation
- Rough patches
- Sun damage
You should have healthy skin before undergoing a chemical peel. If you are considering a deeper peel, your practitioner will take your overall goals and skin health into account. Deep peels are quite safe, but they can require some recovery time.
Types of Chemical Peels Offered at Back to 30™
When you visit one of our medical clinics, you can choose from four different types of chemical peels. Deeper wills can have more significant effects, but will result in more visible peeling and many patients prefer to spend time recovering while their skin exfoliates. Our options include:
- Illuminize Peel®: This mild peel can gently exfoliate your skin to give it a youthful glow and improve the color and texture. Many patients prefer this lighter peel because it does not involve any visible peeling or recovery time.
- Vitalize Peel®: The Vitalize peel is a medium peel, designed to enhance both the texture and tone of your skin. It can also improve acne scarring and melasma. Vitalize is gentle on the skin, so peeling will typically last just only two to three days.
- Vi Peel®: The Vi Peel® is our strongest and deepest, medical-grade peel that can treat acne and acne scars, wrinkles, age spots, sunspots, large pores, and hyperpigmentation. It can also enhance your skin’s overall health. This peel is effective for all skin types. Patients should expect about three to four days for their skin to shed older, damaged cells.
Chemical Peel Results and Recovery
No matter what type of peel you choose, you can enjoy enhanced skin and a rejuvenated appearance after your treatment. Your results will not be immediately apparent, as the old layer of skin will need to slough off first. However, after just a few days, your skin will be smoother with a more consistent tone. You should also notice a significant reduction in lines and wrinkles.
A chemical peel can remove damaged skin to reveal a more youthful glow.
Following a lighter peel, you will likely experience some redness, and mild stinging, similar to a mild sunburn. Recovery from a deeper peel can involve more obvious peeling of the skin that lasts for a longer period of time. However, you can enjoy an even greater degree of skin rejuvenation and can notice a marked difference in the appearance of scars and early signs of aging.
