Chemical peels are topical solutions used to refresh and rejuvenate the skin through the exfoliation process. Peel formulas work by removing dead, dry cells on the surface of the skin, leaving softer, smoother skin behind. There are many different formulations of chemical peels, allowing for customization of treatment to a patient’s specific skin type, needs and desired results.
Who is it for?
At Leber Skin and Laser Center, plastic surgeon Geoffrey Leber, MD offers the following chemical peel options:
- APPROPRIATE FOR: Mild skin imperfections as determined by your physician
- PURPOSE: Brighten the overall appearance of skin
- RESULTS: Radiant looking skin after one peel with very little down time
Neocutis Peel: This peel combines glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture and help promote renewed smoothness and radiance. Following a consultation with one of our skincare professionals, a series of 3 to 6 peels approximately every 2 weeks is recommended.
Apeele Peel: This peel is a next-generation revitalizing chemical peel designed to provide controlled exfoliation of damaged skin with significant visible results after just one treatment.
How does it work?
The patient’s skin is thoroughly cleansed before the peel solution is applied. Time for the peel to work varies based on the specific formulation used and the skin concerns to be addressed. When the time is up, the peel solution is washed off of the skin and neutralized. There is no downtime after light chemical peels.
What about results?
Immediately after a chemical peel, skin will feel softer and smoother. Results of a chemical peel are temporary and treatment will need to be repeated every month or two to maintain results.
