WHAT IS IT?
A chemical peel is a rejuvenation technique that can be used to improve the health and appearance of skin on the face, hands, and neck. Over time, this treatment causes the uppermost layer of the skin to peel off, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin underneath.
Chemical peels can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Acne and blemishes
- Acne scars
- Minor wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
When compared to other cosmetic treatments, chemical peels are one of the most effective and least invasive ways to rejuvenate the skin. They are fast and relatively inexpensive ways to promote collagen growth. As additional collagen is formed, the treatment area becomes tighter and more evenly colored than before, promoting long-term skin health and wellness.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Before treatment, each peel is specially tailored to meet each individual’s cosmetic goals and skin health. While superficial peels often have a short, minor period of downtime, deeper peels feature a longer recovery period. The strength of each chemical peel determines exactly what cosmetic issues are addressed: minor peels can subtly enhance skin health and refresh the patient’s appearance, while deeper peels can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration.
