A chemical peel in Columbus is a cosmetic treatment commonly used to treat conditions such as acne, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
The procedure works by application of a safe chemical solution to the skin. The solution removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which stimulates new cell growth and improves the texture and appearance of the skin.
Chemical peels in Columbus are available in different intensities depending on need and skin type. Here’s how to tell which one is right for you.
LIGHT CHEMICAL PEELS IN COLUMBUS
Like all our chemical peels, light chemical peels at Columbus Facial Plastics result in healthier, glowing skin. Also called a superficial chemical peel, a light chemical peel is a good option for immediate results with fresher, brighter skin. These peels can be used to get your skin party, vacation, and photo ready.
Superficial (light) chemical agents can provide similar results to that of Microdermabrasion, and also similar to Microdermabrasion, these light chemical peels in Columbus are most effective when done in a series of treatments.
Benefits from a light chemical peel are evident immediately, and there is no downtime – you can resume normal activity as soon as the treatment is finished. You should notice brighter, more radiant skin immediately after the treatment, but light chemical peels in Columbus are not strong enough to change unwanted pigment or diminish lines and wrinkles.
MEDIUM CHEMICAL PEELS IN COLUMBUS
Medium-depth chemical peels in Columbus not only cause exfoliation of the outer epidermis, but also penetrate the top layers of the dermis. In so doing, medium-depth peels set off a chain reaction in the skin to reorganize and make new collagen, adding to the collagen-elastic matrix layer. The new skin is fresher, smoother and somewhat tighter.
The Derma Perfect Peel is performed by our skin care professionals. These medium chemical peels in Columbus will require a few days of downtime for recovery.
During your personal consultation, we will discuss the benefits and risks of chemical peels in Columbus so you can make a fully informed decision before our skin care professionals, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Nogan, help you with a comprehensive skin care treatment plan.
DEEP CHEMICAL PEELS IN COLUMBUS
Deep chemical peels at Columbus Facial Plastics are the deepest chemical peel available for skin resurfacing. Deep chemical peels not only cause exfoliation of the outer epidermis, but also penetrate into the top layers of the dermis. In so doing, deep chemical peels set off a reaction in the skin to reorganize and make new collagen. The new skin is fresher, smoother and tighter.
At Columbus Facial Plastics, board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Nogan believes in the tried and true results of TCA Chemical Peels. With a 35% Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) chemical peel, expect the recovery process to take at least a week. Makeup can usually be applied by the 7th day, when normal activity can also be resumed.
The TCA Peel will produce a significant reaction and, in turn, will produce a tremendous result. Results will typically last for 12–24 months. We provide the most effective deep chemical peels in Columbus, creating healthier-looking skin and reducing blemishes and signs of aging.
WHAT CAN SKIN RESURFACING TREAT?
Depending on if you choose light, medium, or deep chemical peel treatments, you will see different types of results. These are some of the conditions that can be treated with medium to deep chemical peel skin resurfacing that will not be improved with the light chemical peel:
- Static Wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible and do not change in appearance with facial movement.
- Dynamic Wrinkles: These are expression lines that may appear as folds when the skin is not moving and may deepen with facial movement or expression.
- Scars: As a result of acne or injury to the skin, scars may be rolling (a wavy appearance to the skin), pitted, discolored, or have raised borders.
- Pigmentation:Freckles, sunspots, melasma, or other darkened patches of skin result mainly from sun exposure.
- Vascular Conditions: Blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin, vascular lesions that appear as tiny blood-filled blisters, or even a constant flush of facial redness.
- Loss of Skin Tone: Weakening of the supportive skin structures (collagen and elastin fibers) that result in a loss of skin firmness or the development of cellulite.
