Chemical peels are a popular choice for men and women wanting to correct minor skin imperfections such as wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Peels exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, to renew and rejuvenate the complexion.
A chemical peel involves the application of specific types of chemical solutions to the skin, in order to remove layers of damaged cells, and stimulate the production of new ones. The removal of damaged skin freshens and improves the smoothness of the skin. It creates a more youthful appearance, especially when done regularly.
How Chemical Peels work
Peels are categorized as light, medium, or deep, depending on the strength of the solution being used to perform the procedure. At Skin & Laser Center, we use medical grade chemical peels. These include various alpha-hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid,lactic acid, malic acid, and citric acid, as well as Betalift (betahydroxy) and Retinoic Acid (Vitamin A) Peels.
A chemical peel resurfaces the skin, and is therefore a good solution for changes brought on by sun, mild acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.
What it treats
A chemical peel resurfaces the skin, and is therefore a good solution for changes brought on by sun exposure such as sun spots, and age spots. It also treats concerns such as acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.
After the outer layer of the skin peels away, a younger and fresher layer will appear. There will also be a marked improvement in skin tone and texture.
