Chemical peels are designed to restore the skin’s health and improve the appearance of skin tone, reduce
hyperpigmentation and fine wrinkles.
- Softens and smooths the skin’s surface texture
- Decreases the frequency of acne breakouts
- Fades the appearance of blemishes and post-acne discoloration
Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of conditions, depending on the type of peel: wrinkles, light
acne scarring, irregular pigmentation (e.g. freckles and age spots), and pre-cancerous conditions such as
keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths).
There are several types of chemical peels: Light peels to remove superficial wrinkles
- Medium peels
- Deep peels for more severe conditions
The type of peel will be determined after you have a consultation. More dramatic results are seen with
deeper peels; however, there is longer down time with these procedures, as well. This is the process of a chemical peel treatment: After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure
is repeated on other areas. The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient’s skin. Significant improvement of damaged skin has been achieved, which can produce dramatic results.
