Chemical Peels FAQ
How do chemical peels work? Chemical peels use different active ingredients to chemically exfoliate the outer layers of the skin. This causes more rapid skin cell turnover and brings fresh cells to the surface for brighter, smoother skin. Some peels formulated for acne-prone skin also help to eliminate acne bacteria, resulting in clearer skin.
What can chemical peels treat? Chemical peels are suitable for a wide range of skin problems. They are often recommended for dull, dehydrated, or stressed skin that lacks luster and radiance. Chemical peels are also intended to reduce age-related symptoms such as lines and age spots.
What types of chemical peels do you offer? We offer a variety of peels to provide each patient with a customized treatment for his or her skin. Patients can choose from light, medium or deep peels that use active ingredients such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, retinoic acid, and more. Your skin will be evaluated during your consultation, and our medical aesthetician will make the appropriate recommendation based on your goals for treatment and your skin type. For our deep resurfacing peels, the physicians administer this procedure.
How many treatments will I need? Although you will see results with just one chemical peel, most people benefit from ongoing treatments on a regular basis. For light or moderate peels, a series of 4 to 6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is usually suggested. Deeper peels may need to be repeated only once or twice a year.
