Not All Chemical Peels Are The Same

Beautiful asian woman with clean fresh skin on white background Even as cosmetic and aesthetic treatments are becoming more and more common, as well as more accessible than ever, many people overlook the surface of their skin as an area affected by aging and the elements.

Many minimally and non-invasive treatments provide great results in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but the addition of a chemical peel can make your skin even more radiant and look more youthful.

Like injectable dermal treatments, there are many different chemical peels available. While the overall goal of revealing fresh and healthy skin is the same, certain peels work better with certain skin tones and aesthetic goals than others.

Dr. Edwin Austin at Oregon Plastic Surgeons offers a variety of medical-grade chemical peels and can match the best one with your skin tone and the results you hope to achieve.

The Medical Micro-Peels are a multi-step process that safely removes the outermost layer of skin, revitalizing the new skin below and helping reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and some acne-related conditions. This peel takes about 45 minutes and has no downtime or recovery after.

For a more specialized treatment, the MicroPeel Plus® works best at reducing the appearance of enlarged pores, acne scars, and dark spots or areas of hyperpigmentation. This particular peel takes 30 minutes per session. While these take less time, Dr. Austin recommends patients receive six treatments spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart to see the best results.

To reach deeper below the skin, Dr. Austin also offers the Micro-Infusion Peel. While still non-invasive, the Micro-Infusion Peel tightens the pores and improves overall skin elasticity by adding vacuum pressure with a handheld wand. This helps stimulate blood flow and collagen production beneath the skin, improving tone and tightness.

Whatever your skin tone or dermal condition or what results you are looking for, Dr. Austin and the team at Oregon Plastic Surgeons in Salem, OR, can find a peel that is perfect for you and has the best chance of helping you meet your aesthetic goals.
