Chemical Peels Doylestown
What are Chemical Peels?
At Plastic Surgery Associates in Doylestown, the chemical peel process utilizes a variety of chemical solutions to remove damaged outer layers of skin, resulting in healthier and smoother facial skin. Chemical peels are helpful for our Pennsylvania clients who have facial blemishes, wrinkles, or uneven skin pigmentation.
Is a chemical peel right for me?
Chemical peels are often performed to reduce visible signs of aging, such as sun spots, although they are also effective on acne scars and other facial blemishes not related to the aging process. While this treatment is usually used on the face, other areas of the body, particularly the neck and hands, may benefit from a facial peel.
Patients undergo chemical peels for a variety of reasons, including:
- Reduction of fine lines, including those found underneath the eyes or around the lips
- Improvement in wrinkles caused by heredity, sun damage, or aging
- Reduction pigmentation irregularities such as dark spots or freckles
- Smoothing of rough or dull skin
In general, patients with light hair and fair skin respond best to chemical treatments, although newer formulations are able to effectively treat patients with darker skin.
How are chemical peels performed?
Chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove or peel the damaged outer layer, thereby greatly improving the texture of your skin. There are several levels of peeling, ranging from very superficial to deep. During your free chemical peel consultation, the right level of chemical peel as it applies to you will be explained.
