Your skin loses its elasticity over time, experiences sun damage and acne, and goes through many other damaging changes. As a result, your skin develops fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and creases. All of these aesthetic issues can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed.
These skin issues can be addressed in a number of ways. For those who find the concept of surgical rejuvenation too daunting, we offer chemical peels.
The chemical peel is for people who wish that they could just peel away the wrinkles and other signs of aging, uncovering smooth new skin layers. As the name suggests, this is in fact exactly what we can do. A chemical peel can help you correct signs of aging in your face, hands, neck, and even chest.
A chemical peel is very effective in treating aging skin with lines and wrinkles, along with certain skin conditions like acne and discoloration. You can start seeing results almost immediately after the procedure.
• Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
• A brighter complexion
• A more even skin tone
• Smoother skin
While some chemical peels require that you spend time recovering, most are quite straightforward and allow you to get back to your day almost right after your treatment.
Skin Issues That Chemical Peels Can Treat
Chemical peels are quite versatile and can correct a number of issues:
• Age spots
• Uneven skin tone or blotchy complexion
• Dull complexion
• Fine lines
• Skin that feels rough to the touch
• Skin that has moderate to severe sun damage
How Does a Chemical Peel Work?
The chemical peel works by using accelerated exfoliation of dead and damaged skin cells caused by caustic agents. This leads to the release of inflammatory mediators and cytokines, resulting in a thicker epidermis, the accelerated deposition of new collagen, and the rearrangement of structural elements.
We apply an acidic solution to your skin and wait for a period of time, letting the chemicals soak into the skin layers. Over time, the damaged upper layers of the skin peel away, giving way to newer undamaged skin layers. A peel can effectively correct issues with skin tone and complexion while also decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The whole process results in better-looking skin that’s smoother and softer to the touch. Chemical peels will leave your skin looking and feeling rejuvenated and youthful.
