Skin Care Peel Q & A

What is a skin care peel?

During a skin care peel, Dr. Mei applies a specialized solution to your skin that causes old, dull cells to exfoliate and peel off. The process reveals smoother, less wrinkled, and more resilient skin. You look younger, with a brighter, smoother complexion.

Skin care peels come in a variety of intensities. Botanic versions improve minor skin discoloration and rough skin. Medium-level botanic and medical peels are best when you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and minor discoloration.

The deepest intensity of medical peels removes damaged skin cells to resolve shallow scars, age spots, and moderate lines and creases. Deeper intensity skin care peels do require a longer recovery time.

Skin care peels are safe for a wide range of skin types.

What happens during a skin care peel?

Prior to the application of the peel, your skin is thoroughly cleansed. Dr. Mei then applies the solution to your face and neck. You sit for a short time so that the application can soak into your skin. Over the course of the next few days, the outermost layers of your skin peel and flake away, revealing the healthy, smooth, unblemished skin underneath.

Should I schedule downtime after having a skin care peel?

Expect some slight facial redness and increased sensitivity to the sun following your skin care peel. You recover quickly from a light intensity peel, but the more intense formulations may require you to take a few days off from work or daily activities to heal. Dr. Mei will help you understand exactly what to expect following your particular procedure.
