Our Chemical Peel Procedure Can Improve Your Appearance

Discover how our chemical peel treatment can provide a major enhancement to the complexion and appearance of your face.
How Does a Chemical Peel Work?
A chemical peel is a procedure that causes a superficial wound on the patient, but with the intention of healing back with improved aesthetics. By strategically applying a toxic solution to the discolored or scarred areas of your face, we intentionally cause the death of your top layers of skin tissue. When they heal, many of the scars, acne, discoloration, and other problems will be gone, greatly improving the patient’s aesthetics.
Types of Chemical Peel Treatments
Chemical peel treatments are defined by how deep they go into your skin. The most common categories are light or superficial, medium, and deep, each signifying how far they protrude into your skin. The type of chemical peel we use will depend on the extent of the scarring or damage that we’re trying to remove.
Who Can Benefit Most from a Chemical Peel?
Patients with the following types of conditions may benefit from a chemical peel procedure:
- Sun damage
- Uneven pigmentation
- Actinic keratoses
- Thinning skin
- Sunspots and liver spots
- Acne scarring
Who Shouldn’t Get a Chemical Peel Procedure?
Patients with darker skin pigmentation are not ideal candidates for a chemical peel procedure because there’s a significant risk that their skin may become a different color in the treatment area.
