Help Your Skin Heal Itself

If you’re experiencing skin problems like age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne, and other chronic concerns, finding a solution can feel impossible. However, there is a safe and effective way to renew the skin, and allow healthy skin cells to replace damaged ones. At The Piazza Center in Austin, Texas, our experienced nonsurgical team can help you get clearer skin with a chemical peel customized to your needs and lifestyle.

Why Are Chemical Peels Effective?

Skin cell turnover is the key to repairing damaged skin, whether that damage is caused by acne, melasma, or age. A new cell begins life deep in the lower layers of the dermis and travels to the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, over the course of its lifespan. Mature cells that reach the top are then shed. This skin cell rejuvenation cycle of shedding and rebirth is what keeps dead or damaged skin cells from accumulating on the skin’s surface.

As we age, skin cell turnover, unfortunately, slows down considerably. An infant’s skin cells renew every 2 weeks; a 25-year-old’s skin cells only regenerate every 30-35 days. This is a natural part of the aging process, but chemical peels are a proven effective way to help our largest organ increase cell turnover.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

In simple terms, chemical peels are chemical solutions of varying strengths that are applied topically. Many are acidic in nature, and they function by ‘burning off’ the damaged cells on the surface layer of the skin. The removal of these damaged cells allows healthy cells to emerge, improving conditions like acne scarring, irregular skin texture and tone, and hyperpigmentation, among others. 

For most patients, a series of treatments spaced months apart are necessary to achieve desired results. During your consultation process, our team will examine your skin and medical history after listening to your cosmetic concerns. Then, a determination about which chemical peels are best for your skin will be explained, along with suggested frequency.

Glowing, Smoother Skin

After a chemical peel with the highly-trained aesthetic team at The Piazza Center, you can expect your skin to be noticeably smoother and clearer. Any blemishes, discolorations, or scarring will be markedly reduced and, with repeat treatments, can be erased entirely. The tone will be evened out, and light wrinkles and lines will be minimized. Your face will have the dewy glow of youth.

What Happens During A Chemical Peel Treatment?

When you visit the serene spa-like office of The Piazza Center for a chemical peel, the first thing you can expect is to be situated comfortably while we cleanse your face of any creams, makeup, or residue and then prep your skin. 

The chemical peel is then carefully spread on the face and neck and left on for a specific period of time, which varies according to the strength of the peel. Then, after the removal of the peel, we give you a detailed guide that will walk you through how to carefully tend to your skin in the days following your treatment. 

What Is The Aftercare Like With Chemical Peels?

We advise patients to allow their skin to rest for 2-3 days, avoiding any treatments or ointments aside from those that we recommend. The skin may feel like a sunburn, slightly tender and dry. Redness is normal. 

Most patients see the dead skin cells start to peel off in about 2-3 days, and side effects clear up within a week. Patients must avoid direct sunlight and protect the skin with full-coverage hats and medical-grade sunscreen in the weeks following their treatment in order to keep the skin safe.

We Don’t Limit Treatment To One Area

At The Piazza Center, we believe a comprehensive, holistic approach to facial rejuvenation is key for results that look natural and last long. We assess three areas before performing any skin rejuvenation treatments. Those areas are:

  • The skin texture and tone
  • Muscle movement
  • Bone structure & fat volume

We find that treating these three areas simultaneously is the best way to address underlying problems and craft a customized Annual Beauty Plan that will effectively deliver results.
