Chemical and Glycolic Peels
Chemical peels are some of the most popular age treatments for the face to literally “peel off” old layers. Removing dead layers of skin reveals softer, brighter complexions. Chemical peels have been used for over 50 years, and are now refined to provide you with the best results ever. A chemical peel may be used in combination with other cosmetic procedures, such as Botox®, face and neck lifts, or laser resurfacing, to enhance your overall appearance. Additionally, chemical peels can also stimulate the growth of new cells and improve your skin due to the chemical agents in the peels. Chemical peels are most certainly a way to restore your skin as well as your self-confidence!
Remember, you should always have your cosmetic procedures performed by a trained professional to insure you receive the safest, optimal results. Our doctors are certified to perform chemical peels and recommend the solutions that will be most beneficial for your unique skin type.
Chemical peels may be helpful for many different people, and with so many types on the market today, your peel can be customized to you. Our doctors will recommend an ideal strength and combination of chemicals to meet your particular needs. In general, a chemical peel may help individuals who experience or wish to eliminate:
• Active acne
• Acne scars
• Uneven skin tone
• Enlarged pores
• Patchy skin pigmentation
• Age spots
• Sun damage
• Pre-cancerous skin growths
Your chemical peel can be preformed in our office, and only takes about 15 minutes. A chemical solution is applied to your face and the agents in the solution work to peel apart your facial layers. Dead and old layers are generally the layers peeled off, while new skin growth and health is stimulated in the process. Your recovery may take one to three weeks depending on the type of chemical(s) your doctor uses and your unique skin type. Specifics of every procedure will vary.
Glycolic peels are the mildest chemical peel formulas for light, yet significant results. These gentle peels are ideal for individuals wishing to receive all the benefits of a chemical peel, without taking time out for recovery. Fine wrinkles, acne and dryness among others, are some of the benefits of a glycolic peel. The strengths of glycolic peels can be varied to provide you with individual benefits for your skin concerns. If you are looking for a way to restore your skin without much of a disturbance to your life, a glycolic peel may the treatment for you!
