What are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?
One of the most popular and least invasive “lunchtime treatments” we offer at Chelsea Skin & Laser is a chemical peel. A peel helps improve the look and texture of your skin while offering a host of skin benefits. Winter is the best time of year for a peel since sun exposure must be limited before and after treatment.
Chemical peels offer a fast-track to smoother, fresher, line-reduced skin. Creams, lotions and serums are important components of a skin care program but offer limited long-term improvement.
Treatment and recovery are fast. The treatment takes 15-30 minutes with minimal down time. You can head back to the office without worrying about shying away from coworkers. Slight redness and possible flaking resolve quickly.
The appearance of red spots, brown spots, sun damage and melasma are skin concerns we treat daily at Chelsea Skin & Laser. Chemical peels stimulate the skin to help heal itself, gently dissolving the surface layers of skin. Trade damaged skin and unevenness for clearer tone and smooth appearance.
A mild chemical peel can help reduce the effects of acne or some acne scarring and even minimize blemishes in some patients.
We’ve found that a series of 3 peels approximately 1 month apart give our patients “glowing” results.
