Chemical Peels

Chemical peels smoothe the facial skin by regenerating collagen which helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles. It also corrects areas of uneven pigmentation to provide a more consistent skin color.

  1. A fresher, smoother facial complexion.
Best Candidates:
  1. Patients with fine lines, especially around the eyes.
  2. Patients with vertical lines around the mouth.
  3. Patients with facial scars caused by injury, accident or acne.
  4. Patients with areas of uneven pigmentation such as “age spots”.
Typical Recovery Timeframe:
  1. Skin will peel by day 7 to 8, leaving softer smoother skin.
  2. Patients can apply makeup at about 10 days.
  3. Careful attention to using sunscreens is important.
