Chemical Peels

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.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

In addition to improving the tone and texture of skin, patients who undergo chemical peels report that they notice the following benefits:

  • Softer, more refreshed skin.
  • An improved, healthy, and youthful look.
  • Less visible scarring or discoloration.

Preparing for a Chemical Peel

Depending on the type and extensity of the peel, you will need to cleanse your skin at least twice daily using a special solution and then apply a moisturizer or cream and wear sunscreen each day. Dr. Aycock will give you a specific skin care regimen designed to help the skin peel more evenly and improve your healing and recovery time.
