Chemical peels for renewed skin
Your highly certified Ballantyne dermatologist can turn the clock back on aging skin through a procedure known as a chemical peel. In one or two visits, you will notice remarkable improvement of aging skin on your face, hands, neck, and chest. Chemical peels are not the definitive cure for aging skin, but it can be a highly effective way to decrease wrinkles. Treatments will leave you with smoother skin and a brighter complexion.
Explaining chemical peels
Chemical peels are performed by highly trained clinicians, under the supervision of a Charlotte highly certified Ballantyne dermatologist. Chemical peels are also effective in the treatment of acne and skin discoloration. Chemical peels are also ideally used to remove fine lines under the eyes or around the mouth. Start by visiting a board-certified dermatologist. He or she will recommend the most appropriate type of treatment for your skin condition. Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, neck, or hands. They commonly are used to reduce or improve the following skin conditions:
- Wrinkles and thin lines
- Certain types of acne
- Mild scarring
- Liver spots and sun spots
- Uneven skin color
To make skin rejuvenation last longer, patients must be conscientious about avoiding excessive exposure to sunlight.
A simple process
Depending upon your recommended level of treatment, your highly certified Ballantyne dermatologist will recommend a skin care plan. Patients typically prepare their skin for 2 to 4 weeks before treatment. On the day of your peel, the clinician will perform a thorough cleansing of your skin. Once the chemical peel is being applied, your skin will be closely monitored, removing the peel at just the right time. If you are undergoing a deep peel, your skin will be treated one small section at a time. A medium peel may require the application of cool compresses and a soothing lotion or cream. A deep peel may require a surgical dressing for a short period. Healing for a light peel may only take a day, but a deep chemical peel take from 10 to 14 days for complete healing. Based upon your desired results, your dermatologist may recommend from 3 to 5 treatments.
