Your Chemical Peel with Dr. Margoles
Chemical peels use one of several types of chemical solutions. The most commonly used are phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs), or blended acids using a combination of exfoliating acids, tyrosinase inhibitors and skin-strengthening agents. Depending on your skin type, age, and situation, Dr. Margoles will work with you to determine how to best approach your chemical peel needs.
The procedure may take anywhere between 20-60 minutes. Your face will be thoroughly cleansed before the solution is applied across the target area. Some stinging may occur during this process. Once the peel is on, your skin will begin to repair itself by flaking away the dead skin to reveal your fresh new layer. Most chemical peels can penetrate deep enough to remove the layer of dark skin and even out the skin tone.
What to Expect After Your Chemical Peel
After your chemical peel, you may experience swelling, redness or scabbing depending on the depth of your peel. Your skin will be very sensitive and flaking may occur for several days after the procedure. It is important to follow Dr. Margoles’ post-treatment care instructions to fully benefit from your peel. Sun protection is necessary and ointment may be required as directed.
