As your body ages, the visible signs of aging can begin to take a toll on your appearance, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles, dull or uneven skin tone, loss of volume, loss of firmness, sun spots and age spots. A chemical peel dissolves the outermost layers of skin to reveal fresh, revitalized skin, with lines and wrinkles smoothed, and skin discolorations resolved.
What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are a tried-and-true way to remove layers of dead, lackluster skin cells and stimulate your body to produce new, healthy cells in the process. They may be used to revitalize the skin of the face, neck, décolletage, or hands to improve a number of skincare concerns. Chemical peels come in varying strength levels from light to deep and intense.
Why are chemical peels performed?
The level of exfoliation and revitalization that can be achieved with a chemical peel is impressive and includes:
- Smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing acne breakouts
- Softening the appearance of acne scars
- Reducing the appearance of sun damage and hyperpigmentation
- Improving skin tone and texture
- Giving your skin a youthful, refreshed glow
What is the recovery from a chemical peel like?
With lighter or medium chemical peels, skin peeling is less extreme, requiring only a few days to resolve. Deeper peels can result in peeling for seven to ten days and require a bit more aftercare. Dr. Leeman will provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions for how you can best care for your skin and encourage your body’s healing processes. It is imperative that, with all levels of chemical peels, you wear sufficient sun protection to shield the newly-revealed skin from the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays.
