What are Chemical Peels?
To give you the best results from a chemical peel treatment, Tulsa Surgical Arts provides you with multiple options. Your personalized VI Peel or one of our many other chemical peel products include exfoliating solutions, such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids. These solutions will help you attain healthier and smoother skin. At our Tulsa, OK office, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina offers chemical peel treatments to minimize skin abnormalities, such as scars, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven patches, or hyperpigmentation. Causing the upper layer to peel off, chemical peels reduce damaged and dead skin cells. As your skin starts to heal from the chemical peel, your complexion will look clearer and smoother. A chemical peel is a noninvasive treatment that brightens your complexion and reduces signs of aging.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At Tulsa Surgical Arts, we provide chemical peels in various levels, such as light, medium, and deep. Each one is designed to meet our patients' skin care concerns and goals. Each type of peel will require some recovery time. At your consultation, we will discuss which one works best for you and discuss the side effects.
Chemical Peel Reviews
"I recently had a girls night Botox party here and it was amazing! There were a lot of first timers at the party and the staff was informative and awesome. Everyone felt comfortable and there was no pressure. The esthetician also stayed for the party and offered hair removal and chemical peels. I will definitely be doing this again!! Loved it!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 29, 2020
Seeking the suggestions of a skin professional is the first step in the journey to healthier skin. During your consultation, a team member at Tulsa Surgical Arts will assess your skin and listen to your cosmetic goals. Based on your concerns, we can determine the level of chemical peel you need, such as light, medium, or deep. Usually, chemical peel candidates have noticeable problems with their complexion, including scars, rough patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, sun spots, and fine lines.
At the beginning of your procedure, you can relax in a comfortable treatment chair. Before applying the customized solution, we will clean your skin to remove any oils or makeup. For deeper chemical peels, we may apply a numbing cream to keep you comfortable. Next, the solution is applied to your skin, and we let it sit for a certain amount of time. The amount of time is determined during your chemical peel planning session. Once the solution has sat for the specified time, we clean the peel off your skin and place a neutralizing agent. After your treatment, you should wear sunscreen or a hat to protect your sensitive skin from UV exposure.
What to Expect
Depending on the level of the chemical peel we used, you may experience some uncomfortable symptoms, such as itching and peeling. For lighter peels, these symptoms may last for a few days; however, for deeper peels, they can last for at least two or more weeks. Dr. Cuzalina or a member of his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions. To ensure proper healing, you should closely follow these directions. Please keep in mind that no matter how badly your skin itches, you should not pull off the flaking skin. You could damage or scar your delicate skin.
