A chemical peel is an anti-aging treatment that improves uneven skin tones and gives the skin a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. A chemical peel is a procedure where the top cell layers of the skin are removed by applying a chemical solution. This allows for replacement of the skin with a fresh, new surface. Chemical peels are used to improve a variety of skin conditions. If you would like to improve fine lines, acne, texture, discoloration, scarring or decrease a sun-damaged appearance, ask about the chemical peels offered at Gardner Dermatology & Med Spa. For more advanced skin transformations, medical strength chemical peels may be the answer. Specific chemicals and solution strengths can be very effective for treating deeper wrinkles, acne, dry, sun damaged, or even sensitive skin.
Chemical and enzyme peels are topically applied solutions to rejuvenate the skin’s surface by shedding layers of damaged skin cells. This exposes new, undamaged layers that are softer and smoother with more even skin tones. These treatments also stimulate the dermis to create new collagen and elastin, which tighten the surface of the skin.
A consultation may be needed prior to scheduling chemical peels. With deeper peels, medications may be necessary. During your consultation, recovery time and contraindications are discussed, along with how to prepare the skin for your treatment. Sun avoidance is extremely important and an adequate UVA and UVB sun block is recommended.
