Find out if a chemical peel is exactly what you need to improve your skin’s appearance.
Does the phrase “aging gracefully” seem false? Do you feel like years of sunbathing or not giving your skin the proper care it needs has left you dealing with sun damage, wrinkles and lines, and an uneven skin tone? Are you looking for ways to reverse some of these changes to improve the overall appearance of your skin? If so, then it might be time to ask our Encino, CA, dermatologist, Dr. Alex Eshaghian, about chemical peels.
What is a chemical peel?
During a chemical peel, a special solution is applied to the skin. The purpose of this solution is to remove the outer layer of dead skin to reveal softer, smoother and more radiant skin underneath. The skin won’t immediately peel away during your procedure. The peel will cause a blistering effect, but after a few days the old, dead skin will peel away to show healthy, new skin. Your recovery time will really depend on the intensity of the chemical peel (superficial vs. deep) you choose to get.
What issues can a chemical peel actually address?
A chemical peel can provide a host of awesome benefits for the right candidate including:
- Reducing the appearance of superficial scars, lines and wrinkles
- Improving acne
- Evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of brown patches, sunspots and age spots
- Boosting the tone, texture, and radiance of your skin
Who is a good candidate for a chemical peel?
There are so many different dermatological options out there that it can often be difficult to figure out which one is actually the best one for you. This is where our Encino skin doctor can come in and help you decide. Let’s sit down and chat about your treatment goals. This treatment is great for minor-to-moderate lines, wrinkles, scars and acne but it won’t treat sagging or severely wrinkled skin. By letting us know your goals for treatment we can also determine if other options like cosmetic fillers or a brow lift may also be a great complementary treatment to your chemical peel.
