Would you like to reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth?
Do you need to treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging?
Are you hoping to improve the appearance of mild scars or reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills?
Then a chemical peel may be perfect for YOU!
What is a Chemical Peel?
We will first clean your skin thoroughly then we apply one or more chemical solutions -- such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol) -- to small areas of your skin. That creates a controlled wound, letting new skin take its place.
What To Expect After the Chemical Peel
Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until you get the look you're after.
Medium-depth and deep peeling may result in swelling as well as blisters that may break, crust, turn brown, and peel off over a period of seven to 14 days. Medium-depth peels may be repeated in six to 12 months, if necessary.
After treatment, you may need bandages for several days on part or all of the skin that was treated.
