Many patients from the Thousand Oaks area visit a dermatologist such as Dr. Panagotacos, of the Skin Care Centre, to undergo treatments that are targeted to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and appearance. They may also visit with a dermatologist to address troublesome skin conditions. Many patients may find that chemical peels are a wonderful, versatile treatment that can improve the skin’s appearance while also addressing problems such as:

  • Aging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Sun spots and sun damage

Chemical peels may sound scary, but they are completely safe and effective when done by a qualified professional. They use a combination of chemicals that are applied to the face and left on for a specific time. Then, the chemicals are washed off of the skin. This process helps eliminate the epidermal skin (upper layer) and triggers the turnover of skin cells and the production of collagen from the dermal layer (middle layer) of the skin. By doing this, the treatment can rejuvenate the face and bring forth younger, more supple skin. At the same time, this process can address imperfections of the skin and reduce the visible signs of aging.

There are several types of chemical peels available. Most are lighter, superficial peels that help exfoliate the epidermis. Stronger peels are available for severe issues, but often require more time to heal, and may cause some minor discomfort. Mild chemical peels can be done regularly for drastic improvements in the skin’s overall texture and appearance, usually done a week or two apart for several weeks. This is determined based upon the strength of the peel, the condition being addressed, and the way the skin reacts to the treatment.

Dr. Panagotacos, of Westlake Village, California offers a variety of chemical peels for patients who want relief from dry, dull skin. They can also help patients who are struggling from a skin condition that is not reacting to over-the-counter treatments. Patients who just want to rejuvenate their skin can also benefit from an occasional chemical peel to keep the skin looking youthful and healthy.
