A chemical peel is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that aims to improve skin issues like acne marks and dark spots. There are different types of chemical peels, and usually, these are based on the specific chemical or solution used. Whatever the type however, the best chemical peels in Chicago or anywhere else in the country for that matter, are those that are performed or administered by licensed and experienced doctors, aestheticians, or other authorized healthcare practitioner.
But for the sake of first-time patients, the best chemical peels in Chicago or anywhere else, have these things in common:
1. It is a primary service offered by a reputable clinic
One of the things first-time patients need to make time for is finding the right clinic for the job. Understand that a chemical solution will be applied on your skin, which can cause damage to it if it isn’t done right. This is why your choice of clinic and doctor is important. The wrong one can cause more harm than good, and the right one can give you rejuvenated skin like you’ve never seen before.
On that note, make sure the clinic offering the service has a good reputation. That means its success rate is practically 100%, affiliated doctors and staff are well-trained and have all the necessary licenses and certifications to practice in your location (and in the capacity of the services they are offering), and their bedside manners are impeccable. Why are all these things important? Because they will affect your overall experience, from consultation to treatment, and most of all, results.
Why does the chemical peel need to be a primary offering of the clinic? Because it shows that the service is one of their areas of expertise/specialty. You wouldn’t want to entrust your face to a clinic that isn’t known for the service you need.
2. Treatment is customized to each patients’ individual needs
The best chemical peels in Chicago at Gold Coast Plastic Surgery are those that have been specifically developed for each patient, which means the treatment plan was designed based on their specific needs. If a clinic offers a one-size-fits all chemical peel treatment, you’d best look for another facility. Any reputable clinic knows that cosmetic treatments are customized for each patient because their situation, needs, and goals are unique. Their physical and physiological attributes are unique as well, and these need to be taken into account, too.
There are different types of chemical peels: light, medium, and deep. There are also different chemical solutions used, including glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and trichloroacetic acid. For the patient’s needs, it could be a simple chemical peel exfoliation, a superficial peeling to improve wrinkles and acne inflammation, or a deep peel for depressed acne scars or skin discoloration.
3. The best chemical peels in Chicago and elsewhere have a realistic goal
If the clinic you’re eyeing makes promises that are too good to be true, they probably are so you’d best check that clinic off your list. During consultation, your doctor will discuss with you the process and what it can achieve. They should give you a realistic goal. If you feel that it’s an “exaggerated” promise, consult with other doctors first before making your decision.
