Chemical Peels for Skin Rejuvenation

Chemical Peels

Although there are several ways to rejuvenate your skin with cosmetic treatments, chemical peels were recently rated among the top five best minimally invasive procedures for restoring the overall health of the skin. This fast treatment provides real, immediate results with zero downtime and no surgery.

Are Chemical Peels Right for You?

Usually, light-haired and fair-skinned men and women make better candidates for getting chemical peels. Dark-skinned individuals can also have great results as well, based on the particular kind of problem that needs to be treated. However, there’s also an increased risk of uneven skin tone following the procedure for darker skin tones.

Severe wrinkles, bulges, and sagging skin do not respond well to a chemical peel. Those particular issues may require other types of cosmetic-based procedures, such as eyelid lift, brow lift, facelift, laser resurfacing, or soft tissue fillers such as collagen and fat transfer. Our medical team, led by Dr. Virender Singhal, will help you figure out the most appropriate treatment that suits your needs.

Everything from clogged pores to excess sun exposure can leave your skin looking uneven along with scarring, fine lines, and a dull complexion. If you desire younger looking, vibrant, and smoother skin, a chemical peel can successfully create your desired results without any major side effects. Mild chemical peels have the ability to exfoliate and give the skin’s surface a more appealing look. Chemical peels improve hyperpigmentation, enhance cell turnover, and help improve melasma, which can be challenging to treat.

How Chemical Peels Work

Contrary to the name, the layers of your skin do not peel off during this treatment. A diluted chemical solution is applied to your skin, dissolving the uppermost layers of your skin. As your skin’s tissue begins to dissolve, the skin naturally heals itself and new, fresh tissue emerges, leaving your skin soft and smooth. The strength and depth of the peel will depend on your skin type and the problem you are correcting.

What are the Main Benefits of a Chemical Peel?

Due to their safety and natural results, chemical peels offer several benefits over other skin rejuvenation treatments.

  • Boosts collagen growth
  • Helps diminish wrinkles and fine lines
  • Makes skin radiant and vibrant
  • Helps acne scarring and acne in general
  • Naturally increases your confidence
  • Quick and easy procedure
  • Improves skin texture
  • Minimal cost
  • Reduces the appearance of melasma and sun damage

Deep chemical peels require a strong solution, but also get dramatic results by smoothing out deeper wrinkles and providing a more thorough exfoliation. A stronger chemical peel increases the risk for redness, discomfort, and a longer recovery time, however.
