Skin Peels

Over time, skin health can be negatively affected by a variety of factors, including sun exposure, aging, gravity, environmental conditions, and more. A highly popular and effective way to renew skin health is to get a skin peel. Sometimes called a chemical peel, a skin peel can rejuvenate your skin and restore a more youthful and vital appearance.

Skin Renewal Treatment

Skin peels can rejuvenate the skin by correcting the following:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Irregularities in skin texture
  • Age spots (sun spots, liver spots)
  • Melasma
  • Freckles
  • Shallow acne scars
  • Skin blemishes, including certain types of acne
  • Discoloration
  • Uneven skin tone

Popular skin peel treatment areas include the face, hands, neck, and d├ęcolletage.

Getting Treatment

A skin peel is a quick treatment administered in our dermatology office. First, a unique chemical formula will be created to meet your precise skin needs. This chemical solution will be applied directly to your skin and may cause a short-lived burning or stinging sensation. During the following week, your skin will react as though to a sunburn and will at first redden, then develop scales, and finally, begin to peel. This exfoliation of the outer skin layers will lead to renewal from within as your skin heals itself.

Chemical peels can be administered in various depths. Mild peels cause mild to moderate skin peeling over one week while deep peels may lead to blisters and crusts that can take up to two weeks to heal. Therefore, mild skin peels may be performed more frequently while deeper peels are usually reserved for more serious and infrequent cases.

After recovering from your chemical peel, your skin will appear more youthful. It will be smoother, softer, and more even in tone. A peel is an excellent way to rejuvenate your appearance and keep your skin looking healthy and radiant!
