The best chemical peels in Westlake Village
Over time, the appearance of your skin changes, it loses its youthful glow, and it is no longer as smooth and supple as it once was. Chemical peels can help to rejuvenate the skin. The result is skin that looks and feels younger.
The benefits of a chemical peel
Chemical peels can address a number of issues with the appearance of your skin. Some common reasons patients request them include:
- Lines and wrinkles – The lines and wrinkles in the vicinity of the eyes and mouth can be greatly reduced.
- Scars – Scars that are light or faint, particularly those that are the result of acne, can be reduced or eliminated depending on their severity.
- Pigmentation – Sun spots, freckles, or dark patches will have a noticeably improved skin tone.
- Texture – Skin sometimes becomes rough or dry and this treatment will reveal fresh new skin.
The benefits are not always immediately noticeable and for some issues such as scarring and pigmentation it may take several sessions to achieve the full potential of the treatment.
Who is a good candidate?
This procedure can be beneficial to most patients. While it can be used to correct the skin’s texture, tone, and reduce wrinkles, many patients choose this procedure to rejuvenate their skin. A light peel can work to exfoliate the skin and help keep it healthy.
Dr. Panagotacos’ offers two different options of chemical peels. A glycolic peel is a light peel that is great for exfoliating the skin and keeping it healthy, treating minor sun damage, and some pigmentation issues. In some cases when dealing with skin pigmentation or sun damage it may take a few treatments before you begin to see noticeable improvement in your skin. Glycolic peels can be repeated approximately every eight weeks. The treatment takes about 15 minutes to complete, and involves no downtime. TCA peels are appropriate for skin that has suffered more damage. This treatment is suitable for wrinkles, scarring, and severe sun damage. This procedure takes about 30 minutes and some discomfort may be associated with this treatment.
Your doctor will explain the benefits and side effects of both treatment options. They will help you choose what is best for your needs.
