Skin treatment in Newport Beach through chemical peel

Chemical peeling or exfoliation is a doctor-controlled skin burn to achieve the desired cosmetic effect after recovery. The procedure is primarily aimed at exfoliating the top layer of skin cells. Its purpose is to smooth and cleanse the surface of the epidermis, as well as facilitate access to fresh, young, moisture-rich cells, giving the skin a radiant and fresh appearance. Peeling can be carried out using completely different methods – for example, there are procedures using ultrasound, laser, acid, enzymes, mechanical dermabrasion, etc. Medical Spa Newport Beach precedes this procedure under the supervision of its experts.

Procedure and Benefits of Chemical Peel

A solution is applied to your skin during a chemical peel. You may feel a warm to slightly hot sensation that will last a few minutes. A burning sensation follows this. A cold compress can be applied to your skin to relieve the sting. The chemical is then washed and/or neutralized. Your skin will be perfectly cleansed. If you have a deep chemical peel, you will receive general anesthesia (you will fall asleep). Skin Treatment Newport Beach provides full attention during the procedure.

Risk / Benefit

In certain skin types, there is a risk of temporary or permanent changes in your skin color. Taking birth control pills, pregnancy or a family history of brown discoloration of your face can increase your risk of developing abnormal pigmentation. There is also a low risk of scarring in certain parts of your face, and certain individuals may be more prone to scarring. If scarring occurs, it can be treated with good results.

History of herpes outbreaks

If you have a history of herpes outbreaks, there is a slight chance of reactivating cold sores. Your dermatologist can prescribe medication to reduce the chance of flare-ups. Follow your doctor’s instructions. Before your chemical peel, be sure to tell your dermatologist if you have a history of keloids (an overgrowth of scar tissue created at the site of a skin injury), any unusual scarring tendencies, any X-rays of your face, or a history of cold sores.

If you have light chemical skin

Expect a sunburn-like reaction after your peel, meaning you’ll notice redness followed by scaling that lasts between three and seven days. Apply the lotion or cream as directed until your skin heals. After your skin heals, use sunscreen every day. You can wear makeup immediately after the treatment or the next day.

Additional peels can be repeated every two to five weeks until you achieve your desired results. Usually, three to five skins are needed to achieve your goal.

Expect some redness

If you have moderately chemical skin:

Expect some redness, swelling, soreness, and peeling of your skin. Swelling may persist and worsen for 48 hours. Blisters can develop and will burst. The skin will crust and peel for seven to 14 days. Do the soaks every day as directed by your doctor. Apply ointment after each soak. Apply lotion or cream daily. Only expose your skin to sunlight once it is completely healed. Antiviral medication should be taken for 10 to 14 days. You can wear makeup after five to seven days. Additional medium-depth peels can be repeated at six to 12-month intervals, if necessary, to maintain results and come to Skin Treatment Newport Beach.

If you have deep chemical skin

The treatment area will be bandaged. Your bandage will be removed in a few days. Expect a healing time of 14 to 21 days. Do the soaks every day as directed by your doctor. Apply ointment after each soak. After 14 days, apply moisturizer as required. Do not expose your skin to the sun for three to six months. Antiviral medication should be taken for 10 to 14 days. Wait at least 14 days before using any makeup. You can only do one deep peel on your face from renowned Skin Treatment Newport Beach.


Do not use tanning beds or other indoor or outdoor tanning while your skin is recovering. After your skin heals, always use sunscreen every day. Apply moisturizer daily, as directed, to keep your skin moisturized to prevent scarring. Your new skin is fragile and more prone to complications. Skin Treatment Newport Beach will give post-treatment instructions to reduce the chance of developing abnormal skin colour after your peel and other complications.
