Chemical peels are a very effective way to remove the outer layers of the skin on the face, neck, and décolletage. The top layer of your skin has been exposed to the elements and may have lost its youthful glow. Once removed, new skin cells are revealed, with a bright, healthy, smoother appearance. Chemical peels can help to reduce scarring, blemishes, and in some cases, remove pre-cancerous growths.
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are designed to solve various facial concerns such as acne, acne scars, fine lines, brown spots, and wrinkles. With a custom chemical peel, a medical-grade chemical solution is applied to the skin. The degree of exfoliation reflects the type of peel. Once the new skin is revealed, it is brighter, smoother, and glowing. Dr. Ardesh will evaluate your skin to determine the best type of peel for you. Chemical peels generally fall into the following categories:
- Superficial peels: This type of peel will gently exfoliate only the outer layer of skin.
- Medium peel: This peel goes deeper than a mild peel and can be used to remove damaged skin, improve ages spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
- Deep peels: These peels are reserved for those seeking dramatic results. Deep peels can effectively remove freckles, scarring, wrinkles, and damaged skin cells. The overall effect is a marked rejuvenation of the skin.
