Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a technique used to rejuvenate skin by removing the outermost layers of skin. To accomplish this, the peel works from the inside out and is considered a controlled injury.

 

Benefits:

 

Chemical peels work to:

 

•             Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth

•             Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging

•             Improve the appearance of mild scars

•             Treat certain types of acne

•             Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills

•             Improve the look and feel of skin

 

Areas of sun damage may improve after chemical peeling. After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say "broad-spectrum" on the label, meaning it protects against the sun's UVA and UVB rays. Also, it should be a physical sunscreen and be above SPF 30. Limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and wear a wide-brimmed hat.
