Where to Get a Chemical Peel for Radiant Skin

Chemical peels are non-surgical skin care treatments designed to improve skin texture and promote a clear, glowing complexion. These facial peels can remove dead or damaged skin cells from the skin's surface to encourage the growth of new, healthy skin cells. Chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and blemishes, while stimulating the production of subsurface collagen fibers to improve skin elasticity and firmness. Different facial peels are available to achieve a wide range of results. Patients can opt for lighter peels to achieve modest improvements in skin texture, while deeper chemical peels can achieve more substantial results.

At Dermatology, Laser and Surgery of Flatiron, our talented dermatologists offer numerous types of facial peels to restore a radiant complexion. Chemical peels are used to treat certain skin conditions or to improve appearance by improving skin tone and texture. A chemical peel, also known as a chemical peel or dermapeeling, uses a chemical solution to improve the appearance of the skin. Different types of chemicals cause controlled injury, each penetrating through a different depth of skin and then peeling off to reveal a new layer of skin. If done incorrectly, a chemical peel can cause complications such as infection and permanent scarring.

Chemical peels can be done in the doctor's office or in a surgical center as an outpatient procedure. Learn more about the chemical peel options offered in Flatiron Dermatology, Laser and Surgery below. Some skin types are more likely to develop a temporary or permanent skin color change after a chemical peel. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing it to blister and eventually detach. Facial peels use a specialized chemical solution to remove dead or damaged skin cells from the skin's surface.

Acne scars, sun damage, pigmentation problems, blemishes, wrinkles, and fine lines can all be improved with chemical peels. The solution is applied to the skin for a certain period of time (depending on the type of chemical peel chosen) before washing off. At Flatiron Dermatology, Laser and Surgery our doctors and staff will be happy to discuss your chemical peel in more detail. Sagging, bumps, deep scars, deep facial lines, and more severe wrinkles don't respond well to chemical peels. Potential candidates for chemical peels include those who are bothered by acne scars, blemishes, sun damage, and pigmentation problems.
