Chemical peels: A rejuvenating treatment for patients in Downey

The Downey, California area has a rich history that dates back to the 1700s, and its population continues to grow today. Part of the attraction is a comfortable, temperate climate with 287 sunny days each year, on average. Sunshine is great for golfing, tennis, sightseeing, and pool parties. Unfortunately, it can lead to premature signs of aging and a lackluster complexion. Dr. Douglas Blose helps women and men in the Downey area enjoy glowing, youthful skin with customized treatment plans that include chemical peels.

Getting a chemical peel

Please don’t be intimated by the name of this treatment. A chemical peel is actually a means of exfoliating dull, dead surface skin cells without abrasion. Treatment increases your natural cell turnover, resulting in a smoother, refreshed complexion.

Dr. Blose has a great deal of experience in custom-blending the strength and depth of peels, based on the condition of your skin and the results you want to achieve. A mild peel (sometimes called a lunchtime peel or a superficial peel) is a spa-like treatment. Your skin is cleansed, and a thin layer of peeling agent is smoothed over it to penetrate the outermost layer of skin. Treatment is carefully monitored, and the solution is removed at just the right time. You may feel some tingling or have a bit of pinkness, but there is no downtime. You must protect your skin from the sun for a few days after the peel.

A deeper peel may be needed to treat fine lines, brown spots, freckles, or rough-textured skin associated with sun damage. Once Dr. Blose determines the best formulation for your treatment, he will talk with you about what to expect during and after the peel. He takes extra steps to ensure your comfort throughout treatment, and recommends high-quality skin care products to soothe your complexion afterward. Expect at least a few days of redness, slight swelling, and flaking before a fresh new you is revealed.
