FAQs on Chemical Peels:
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin, helping you look smoother and younger after aging, acne or sun exposure.
What can a chemical peel be used to treat?
A chemical peel can help improve:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age and liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough skin and scaly patches
- Sun-damaged skin
How does a chemical peel work?
During a chemical peel, Dr. McKenna will carefully apply a chemical solution to your skin that includes phenol, trichloroacetic acid, and alpha hydroxy acids.. This will remove damaged outer layers and improve its overall texture. Chemical peels come in three intensities depending on your specific needs as a patient -- light, medium and deep -- and Dr. McKenna will adjust his formula to suit your skin.
FAQs on Non-Invasive Spider Vein Treatment
What are spider veins?
Spider veins occur when small blood vessels on your skin become dilated, giving a clustered, purplish appearance many people find insightly. Spider veins can appear anywhere, but they usually affect the thighs, ankles and calves. A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in your legs, including:
- Hormonal shifts
- Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
- Weight fluctuation
What is the best non-invasive treatment for spider veins?
Dr. McKenna offers several non-invasive options for treating spider veins:
- Sclerotherapy is the most common method of treating spider veins in the legs and ankles. During this treatment, a sclerosing solution is injected into the affected veins. The injection irritates the inside of the vein, and over time the vein will collapse and fade from view. If you have multiple spider veins, the treatment will require multiple injections to collapse all the veins.
- Laser therapy involves an intense beam of light directed at your spider veins, breaking it up through your skin. More than one laser session may be needed to get the results you’re looking for, and laser therapy may be performed in conjunction with sclerotherapy.
After your treatment, the area may be dressed with compressive tape or stockings. If you feel and see bruising, don’t worry, as this will fade in several weeks’ time.
