What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are made of a solution that is left on the skin for a certain amount of time. During this time, the solution removes dead skin and makes way for the newer, healthier skin underneath.
The skin benefits in more ways than one when it is exfoliated regularly. Acne scars, for example, may disappear after just a few treatment sessions. Peels also offer one of the best ways to target and control melasma, a condition that results in dark patches on the skin.
Peel treatments can address both superficial and deep-set skin concerns. Certain types of peels can help you simply keep acne under control, while others encourage your skin to deeply renew itself and keep lines and wrinkles at bay.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This will depend on the results you’re looking to achieve. Most people get to enjoy noticeable results after a series of about six treatment sessions, each spaced a few weeks apart. That said, we’ll help you get a better idea of what to expect and how many treatment sessions you’ll need when you come in for your consultation.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels typically come in different strengths. Light peels can help you improve overall skin texture, medium peels address fine lines and wrinkles, and deeper peels work to reverse sun damage and deep wrinkles.
Because peel treatments come in many different forms and can address many different issues, you will likely be able to find one that works for you. The best way to find out is to schedule an appointment with our specialist and talk to us about your skin concerns in person.
