Improving Skin’s Tone And Texture

Chemical peels are designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone dramatically. The peeling process can gently eliminate the surface layer of dead, damaged cells, making brighter, clearer skin. These minimally-invasive skincare treatments will also reduce fine lines, deep creases, spots, sun damage, acne scarring and more.

Why Choose A Chemical Peel?

Your skin protects your body from the damaging effects of the sun, wind and harsh chemicals daily. Over time, your skin will lose its youthful elasticity and its natural collagen products. This can lead to brown spots, sun spots, acne scars and more. Chemical peels can treat signs of aging and damage from both inside and out, restoring a smoother, brighter appearance.

Recovery And Downtime After A Chemical Peel

There are few damaging side effects or potential complications, but there is a slight risk for swelling, redness, skin irritation and tenderness after a chemical peel. Patients should avoid prolonged sun exposure in the days following the chemical peel. Many chemical peels require little to no downtime, allowing patients to return to work or school the following day. Deep chemical peels can take one to two weeks for the dead skin to shed, so patients may opt to avoid public-facing activities until this process is complete.
