Peels & Resurfacing Procedure
In Little Rock a chemical peel can come in 3 levels; light, medium, deep. Recovery time and intensity of the peel determine its level. To perform a chemical peel, the face must first be rid of any dirt or makeup. Then, the peel solution is placed on the skin. Depending on the level of the peel, treatment time varies.
Dermabrasion removes layers of skin to improve the surface texture and create a soft feel and appearance. For the procedure, a monitorized brush is used to smooth the outermost layer of skin. The procedure time depends on how large of an area needs to be treated.
For light peels, most patients experience minimal downtime. For medium peels, slight swelling and redness may occur, however this will decrease in the following days or week. For deep peels, recovery will take longer. After a dermabrasion treatment, the skin may be red and somewhat swollen. During the next several days, the skin will scab and fall off, leaving fresh new skin. Specific recovery instructions will be provided to you before your treatment.
