are chemical peels too harsh for my skin, chemical peel orlando

Many people want to reduce the scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and aging skin on their face, but they worry that a chemical peel may be too harsh on their skin. HZ Plastic Surgery offers a wide variety of chemical peels ranging from mild to advanced in order to meet your skin’s individual needs. But, is a chemical peel in Orlando actually too harsh on your skin? We're uncovering the truth.

What Is A Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic, dermatological technique which aims to improve the appearance of your skin on your face, hands, or neck. A chemical solution is applied to the affected skin in order to exfoliate it. This exfoliated skin eventually peels off revealing brighter, rejuvenated skin. The new skin is temporarily more sensitive to sunlight, but you can return to normal sun exposure relatively quickly.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Recommendations for a chemical peel should be performed by a licensed esthetician or dermatologist based on your individual skin type and needs. Typically, chemical peels work best on light-haired or fair-skinned patients, however, many people with darker complexions or hair colors have had success with these procedures. Chemical peels are generally not recommended for patients with infections, active skin disease, sunburns, or cut skin.

Other conditions that may affect your ability to get a chemical peel are being pregnant or nursing, having psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, or rosacea, or having taken Accutane in the last six months. Before having a chemical peel you should use Retin-A, Renova, prescription skin care products, products that contain ascorbic acid, bleaching or skin lightening agents or other acid-based products for at least 48 hours.
