Chemical Peels in Chattanooga
Wanting to restore damaged layers of skin on a tight budget? A chemical peel may be your answer.
A chemical peel is pretty much what it sounds like. It involves the application of chemical solutions to damaged layers of skin which cause the damaged skin to peel away, revealing more youthful and healthy layers of skin. We offer light, medium and deep chemical peels. The classification of a chemical peel depends on the type and strength of the chemical used. Therefore, a light chemical peel is the least envasive form of peel. Regardless of the strength of chemical peel, pain is usually not associated with a chemical peel.
Light Chemical Peels
Light chemical peels are accomplished through the use of Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), such as lactic,glycolic or fruit acids. These chemical peels penetrate less layers of skin than a medium or deep peel and are best suited to treat minor wrinkling,dry patches, uneven pigmentation or acne.
Medium Chemical Peels
A medium chemical peel involves the application of Trichloroacetic acids (TCA). Depending on the severity of your skin issues, Trichloroacetic acids can be used in various concentrations for the treatment of fine surface wrinkles, pigment dilemmas or superficial skin damage .
Deep Chemical Peels
Deep chemical peels use the strongest classification of chemicals known as Phenol. Phenol effectively combats coarse facial wrinkles and blotchy, sun damaged skin and penetrates at the deepest level possible. During your consultation, our cosmetic surgeons can help you choose the appropriate level of chemical peel for your condition.
Although there is no down time with a chemical peel, patients should avoid scheduling any activities that would cause them to feel self conscious about the flaking of their skin. The flaking should only last a few days. Restore your skin without destroying your wallet.
