We use chemical peels to treat fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes, dull or blotchy complexions, freckles, rough feeling skin, acne, acne scars, sun damaged skin, and skin discoloration. When treating acne scars, chemical peels can induce controlled skin damage and speed skin exfoliation. Chemical peels can restore the appearance of youthful skin on the neck, chest, hands, and face.
To explore your candidacy for a chemical peel, we recommend scheduling a consultation. At your appointment, we perform an examination and inspect the area of skin to be treated. To determine which chemical peel is right for you, we will examine the tone and thickness of the skin. We will review your medical history, including current and past medical conditions and any medications you currently take. We will ask if you use retinoid cream, because it can enhance the penetration of the chemicals used during treatment.
Not everyone is a candidate for treatment. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, we may caution against a chemical peel. Certain types of medication you take may also restrict your candidacy. However, we can explore several other options to restore youthfulness and beauty to the skin.
If you are a candidate for a chemical peel, we will devise a treatment plan with you. For treatment, we apply a chemical solution to the area of the body you want treated. The chemical peel helps repair and rejuvenate the skin.
