Everyone’s skin is unique, and it is important that men and women feel comfortable with the appearance and health of their skin. The facial skin is often the first to show the signs of aging, and due to its exposure to the elements every day, it can develop concerns including photodamage, fine lines and wrinkles, and even dull complexion and skin tone. The easiest way to brighten the facial skin and address a wide range of cosmetic concerns is by choosing to have chemical peels performed.
What is a chemical peel?
Many patients cringe at the idea of having a chemical peel, as it sounds like a painful or unpleasant experience. Fortunately, the chemical peel can be more superficial and mild while effective at smoothing out the skin tone and reducing imperfections. Mild chemical peels exfoliate the upper layer of the skin to remove dead skin cells and bring forth healthier skin from beneath. Patients who want to aggressively treat their skin may instead choose one of our stronger chemical peels, which can dramatically enhance the skin’s appearance in just one appointment. However, the more aggressive chemical peels require patients to take more time off of social activities, work, and school to allow the skin to peel, flake, and heal properly. Patients can choose the type of chemical peel they desire.
What can be achieved with chemical peels?
Many skin concerns can be addressed with chemical peels. Patients with the following concerns are encouraged to speak to a professional about undergoing this treatment to enhance the skin:
- Sunspots/age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Poor skin texture and tone
- Hyperpigmentation concerns
- Acne scarring
