We all know the importance of taking care of our skin to help delay the signs of aging. However, it's hard to escape time and despite all our good intentions and hard work we often end up with fine lines, wrinkles, and more. Fortunately, while we can't turn back the clock we can refresh our appearances with a chemical peel.
For over a decade, our highly trained staff at Cascade MedSpa & Laser Centre in Baxter, Minnesota, has been rejuvenating faces, hair, and bodies using only FDA-approved products and devices. Whether you're looking for a chemical peel, skin tightening, acne treatment or something else, let us help you achieve your goals.
Time and aging take their toll on the skin in a variety of ways. Neglecting to wear sunscreen or take other protective measures from the sun's harmful ultraviolet radiation can lead to wrinkles, age spots, leathery skin, and more — including skin cancer. Using a tanning bed can cause these issues as well.
Wrinkles can begin to appear around the age of 25 as the skin starts to lose some of its elasticity and support due to a decrease in collagen. This phenomenon becomes more pronounced as the years pass with wrinkles becoming most obvious after the age of 65. Unhealthy habits like smoking can also prematurely age the skin.
There are a number of anti-aging treatments available to help combat signs of aging and refresh one's appearance. One popular example is a chemical peel.
This non-invasive treatment is typically performed on the face, neck or hands. It can improve a variety of skin imperfections including fine lines and wrinkles, dark patches, mild scarring, and certain kinds of acne. Blemishes like freckles, age spots, and sun spots as well as scaly patches and rough skin can also be addressed with this treatment. Finally, a chemical peel can aid in evening out skin coloring and brightening a dull complexion.
Chemical peels work by using a special solution to remove layers of skin to reveal the smoother, more youthful layer underneath. They are available in three different depths ranging from light to medium to deep depending on the issue being addressed.
Treatment begins with a consultation that includes an examination of the skin, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals. Next, we create a personalized treatment plan that includes what depth of peel and, if applicable, how many treatments will likely be needed. Recovery time depends on the specific procedure and includes being careful to avoid the sun in order to protect the new sensitive skin.
