A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that removes dead skin cells, promoting healthy cell growth and a clear, smooth complexion! In addition to a bright and glowing face, chemical peels can also treat some skin conditions.
But did you know that you can get the most out of your peel by combining it with other treatments? Whether you've had a chemical peel before, or have been considering one, read on to learn which procedures can optimize your results.
Pair Your Peel with a Clinical Facial
Clinical facials can treat dry, aging or sun-damaged skin, razor burns, acne and more! This treatment can even be customized for your specific skin type—providing the perfect formulation for deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, hydration and acne extraction.
Getting a facial and chemical peel in the same visit is beneficial because your nurse or aesthetician will be familiar with your skin type and its sensitivity. Your facial’s unique formulation will be customized accurately, making the results even more impressive.
Address Lines and Wrinkles with Botox
Believe it or not, receiving a cosmetic injectable in addition to your chemical peel can be done! A Botox treatment generally takes anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, so it won’t add much more time on to your original session.
Botox is a great way to smooth out lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between the brows—something a bit deeper than what a chemical peel can reach on its own. This injectable is FDA-cleared for cosmetic use, providing natural-looking rejuvenation for up to six months.
Combining Treatments with Your Chemical Peel
To get the most out of your chemical peel, the specialists at Anders Dermatology recommend pairing the treatment with a clinical facial or Botox injections. While we feel these are the safest and most effective options, be sure to speak with a nurse or aesthetician if you have questions about any other cosmetic procedures.
