Feel like getting rid of those lines and imperfections on your face? Then chemical peels could be your solution.
Chemical peels can be performed on the neck, hands and face. They are particularly indicated in reducing fines lines below the eyes and around the mouth. Various peels can also be used to treat acne, as well as skin damage due to age or sun exposure.
Operative discomfort is minimal. However, because the chemical peel brings new skin to the surface, the treatment area will be temporarily sensitive to sun exposure following treatment. Your experienced physician will provide you detailed instructions on limiting your sun exposure following treatment.
The treatment starts by applying a chemical solution that soaks into the skin, causing it to blister. Over the next few days depending on how deeply the solution has penetrated, the skin then peels off to reveal fresher, softer skin under the old layer.
There are three main types of peels which are used to improve the appearance of pigment changes in the skin, acne scars, mild sun damage or fine wrinkles in all skin types. Chemical peels can also be carried out in conjunction with laser treatments for a more dramatic result.
