A Chemical Peel is a non-invasive technique for restoring wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented, or sun-damaged facial skin. A chemical solution is used to peel away from the skin's damaged outer layers. The new cells and collagen are stimulated during the healing process to produce a smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin surface. Chemical peels can be used on the entire face or on specific regions such as the forehead or areas around the mouth. A peel does not eliminate sagging or excess skin. Each treatment is customized for patient skin type, specific problem areas and the delicate areas of the face. The depth of the peel is dependent on the concentration and type of acid, and a person's skin type and sensitivity. Treatment issues will be discussed during your aesthetic consultation.
These peels are mild and will enhance appearance by providing smoother, brighter-looking skin. Experience has shown that when a series of peels are performed within a short time interval, the effect is greater than one deep peeling procedure with a long and inconvenient recovery time. Improvements from peels may be very subtle at first. At first, you may detect a healthier glow on your skin. With continued treatments, you will notice a general improvement in the texture of your skin.
