Your skin is the first thing that people see when you look at you. A chemical peel in Beverly Hills, MI can refine and refresh your skin and improve its look and texture. Dr. Indira Misra-Higgins of Beverly Hills Skin Care Institute provides the services you need to have the skin of your dreams.
What a chemical peel can do to improve your skin depends on the type of peel that you receive. Peels vary from light to deep and are used to treat many different issues. You can receive multiple light peels, but if you opt for a deep chemical peel, it can only be done once in a lifetime.
Before getting any type of chemical peel in Beverly Hills, MI, you need to discuss your expectations with our dermatologists and get an evaluation. We want to do our best to meet your expectations and that requires the skin and expertise that only an experienced dermatologist can provide.
A gentle peel uses alpha hydroxy acid to remove the epidermis, the top layer of skin. It only takes about 30 minutes to work its magic. It brightens your skin and gives you a more youthful glow. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne, and uneven skin tones. To maintain the new brighter skin, you can get a gentle peel every two to five weeks. The recovery time after a light peel is between one day and a week. It can take more than one light peel to get the desired results.
A medium peel uses glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid. It goes deeper in the skin than a gentle peel. The results will be more dramatic and the healing time will be significantly longer. A medium peel can help with acne scarring, age spots, mild to moderate wrinkles, and uneven skin tones. The recovery time after a medium peel is between five and seven days, and you will have redness and may experience swelling. The peel will need to be repeated to maintain the improvement.
A deep peel is a medical procedure. It may be done in a surgical center and anesthesia will be used. Trichloroacetic acid or phenol acid is used and the recovery time is between 14 and 21 days. Because it goes deeper into the skin, the results will be more dramatic and can last up to 10 years. It is best for extensive sun damage, precancerous growths, and moderate wrinkles.
