Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a simple procedure, performed in the office, which involves application of a substance that damages the very top layer of skin. This can result in improved texture, reduction of brown spots, decrease in wrinkles, and rejuvenation of the facial skin’s youthful appearance.

Pain is usually minimal, and peeling is minimal enough to return to work the same day in some cases. Deeper peels may require as long as seven days to recover, but may be more effective in decreasing wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
