Chemical peels are used to successfully treat a wide range of skin conditions, such as acne scars, traumatic scars, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and several other conditions. They help minimize the appearance of these skin conditions and create fresher, younger-looking skin.
There are several different types of chemical peels. We customize each peel to ensure the correct treatment is performed for your skin type and the severity of your skin condition.
It’s not unusual for you to feel a slight stinging sensation when undergoing a chemical peel. The deeper your peel, the more significant the sensation may be. Before a deep peel, we may prescribe a mild sedative to help relax you while also using a topical anesthetic cream or gel to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure. At-home care is extremely important to ensure proper healing during recovery. It’s important to avoid sun exposure immediately after a chemical peel until your skin has healed.
