Acid Peels in Glendale AZ

Acid Peels are widely used in cosmetic clinics to treat a whole range of skin disorders. These peels have often been used to treat sun damaged skin, remove pigmentation spots (freckles, sun spots), melasma and fine lines.

The basic principle behind any peel is that they function by removing the most superficial layers of the skin. This results in an even skin surface with a brighter color and a softer texture. Acid peels are frequently used by therapists or nurses in beauty clinics.

Acid Peels in Phoenix AZ

Peels come in various different forms, and your acid peel in Phoenix AZ, at the Millennium Laser and Aesthetic Center, will depend on your skin type and desired results.

Types of Peels:

The higher concentration peels are generally applied by physicians.

The milder acting peels can be applied once every 3-4 weeks but the more concentrated peels are applied once every 4-6 months. The most common acid peels used today include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and Trichloracetic acid.

The mild acids can be used to treat skin during lunch time and work well at removing the superficial pigments and skin debris. Most individuals do not see a good response after a single session, but after repeated sessions there is a significant improvement in cosmoses.

The low strength peels are painless, fairly well tolerated and require no preparations. The higher concentration peels like phenol, may require either a local or a general anesthetic.

After the application of all peels, there is mild facial redness and occasional swelling. These side effects resolve in 2-3 days. The majority of individuals can resume their normal lifestyle and make-up can be applied to conceal the redness.
