Chemical Peels in San Francisco, CA

Chemical peels are one of the most successful ways of restoring vibrant, softer skin, particularly on areas of the face plagued by blemishes, sun damage, wrinkles, and more. Chemical peels can be performed on the entire face or only certain sections such as the forehead or chin. They can also be performed on the hands and upper chest. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock performs chemical peels for San Francisco area residents.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels remove the damaged outer layer of the skin, the area which is often the brunt of UV damage, acne scarring, and more. A chemical agent is applied to the skin to help exfoliate the outer layer. Then, skin softening and revitalizing agents, including alpha hydroxyl acids are applied to the skin to provide it with a more youthful and softer look.
