A vibrant, refreshed skin layer can do a lot to rejuvenate your appearance. With chemical peels, you can remove old, dead layers of skin and clear up pores that have become clogged with oil and dirt. Skin peels can even remove minor skin blemishes like fine lines and acne scarring.
Chemical peels work as a topical treatment during which a chemical formula, typically a glycolic acid, is applied to the skin. The treatment lasts about fifteen minutes but can be tailored in duration and formula strength to increase or decrease the peeling strength. Patients often report a slight stinging sensation, which is why cold compresses are available to alleviate discomfort. Even after just one treatment, patients notice that their skin is smoother and more even in tone.
Consult with an experienced practitioner like Dr. Perhez Jaffer to learn more about the results you can achieve with chemical peels.
