After the elements have taken their toll on our skin, the complexion can appear dull and lifeless. Harmful UV rays may also lead to the appearance of brown spots and fine lines. A chemical peel is a great way to reverse the damage and rejuvenate the skin. At our Skin & Laser Center, Dr. Leber and his staff offer a variety of chemical peels that can be tailored to your specific needs and desired results.
What Is A Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is an exfoliating treatment that uses specific solutions to remove outer dead layers of skin, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath. The procedure can also effectively minimize the appearance of some type of sun damage including brown spots and fine lines. Different ingredients might be included in your peel formulation to brighten or hydrate the skin while rejuvenating the overall complexion.
A chemical peel in performed in the office and generally does not require any type of anesthesia. The procedure usually takes one hour or less. Patients are able to return home as soon as their treatment is completed and lighter chemical peels do not require any type of downtime.
Benefits of Chemical Peels
There are a number of potential benefits of chemical peel, including:
- More even skin tone and texture
- Smoother, softer skin
- Minor imperfections such as fine line and shallow scarring are improved
- Brown spots and freckles will be less visible
- Produces more vibrant, radiant looking skin
Some chemical peels offer results after the very first treatment. However, lighter peels may require a series of treatments in order to achieve full results.
