Chemical peels using alphahydroxy acids such as glycolic, lactic or fruit acids are a mild but effective way to smooth and improve the texture of the skin. As one of the many skin treatments offered at our Mt. Pleasant area practice, chemical peels are an in-office procedure that take only a few minutes. Once your face has been cleansed, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. Over the course of the next several days, you may experience some redness and flaking. When the dead layers of skin have peeled away, the younger, healthier layers of skin will be revealed. Best results are seen when the peels are performed in a series of treatments spaced three to four weeks apart and a good skin care regimen is being used at home. Chemical peels are a recommended treatment for those individuals with facial blemishes, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.
Chemical peels are an effective and affordable way to help restore that youthful glow to your skin. In addition, they are a great way to prepare for and enhance your surgical results. We offer a variety of peels including glycolic, modified Jessners, lactic acid, and the Vitalize Peel®.
