Get in the Know: Chemical Peels
Are chemicals are bad for you?
For some people the thought of putting a chemical on their face seems a little scary but with New Generation Peels performed by a qualified medical provider there is no need to worry. The active acids in most peels are natural, including glycolic acid which is derived from fruit acids or lactic acid which comes from milk.
Do chemical peels require a lot of downtime?
There are options available that give you almost no downtime. You can usually resume your daily activities right away with a New Generation Peel. For patients who want a stronger peel, the skin may feel tight and dry for a couple of days, followed by a couple more days of light peeling.
What do chemical peels actually do for the skin?
Medical grade chemical peels can improve acne, acne scars, melasma, sunspots, fine lines, stimulate collagen production, exfoliate dead skin and improve the texture of the skin. They are often applied weekly to every other week for several sessions, then monthly as an anti-aging maintenance therapy. Medical grade chemical peels can make a great improvement in the appearance and quality of the skin. They often result in an appealing youthful “glow” to the skin. Chemical peels are performed by our highly trained medical professional staff.
