Does the quality of your skin not meet your standards because of problems like acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles or discoloration? If so, a chemical peel might help you. Millions of people have had a chemical peel treatment to even out their skin tone, fade scars or remove fine lines and wrinkles.
Chemical peels come in different forms. They vary in strength, ingredients used, and recovery times, but they all can improve your skin condition in sometimes dramatic ways. We offer the Jessner, glycolic and TCA peels to treat a wide variety of issues.
How Chemical Peels Work
A chemical peel aids in resurfacing your skin through removing the outermost layers of skin. This process encourages the growth of new, healthy skin and can improve conditions like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin texture.
The types of peels are defined by what ingredient they use, how strong it is and treatment duration. We offer light and medium chemical peels. Let’s take a look at the different types of chemical peels available so that you can get a better idea of which one might be right for your individual skin condition.
A light peel is the gentlest form available and can be performed over lunch time, having you back at work immediately after your treatment. Light peels can help instantly brighten your skin and even out its texture. They can also minimize wrinkles, scars, sun damage and dry skin.
Our glycolic peel does an excellent job of gently exfoliating and brightening the skin. Fruit enzymes are a common recent addition in these peels. Advanced peels are also available that provide similar results as medium peels, but with minimal side effects. Patients may need multiple treatments for optimal results.
Light peels are effective, but you can treat deeper issues with a medium peel. The TCA peel can be used to penetrate more deeply into the skin. Medium chemical peels are helpful in the treatment of wrinkles, sun damage and uneven pigmentation. Patients looking to truly exfoliate the skin and clear up acne may benefit from the Jessner peel.
Each type of chemical peel comes with its benefits, so we can help you decide on the best one for your situation during your consultation.
