Chemical peels address a variety of skin concerns, ranging from acne to photoaging (damage to the skin induced by sun exposure, including textural abnormalities, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation). Superficial peels can be divided into beta-hydroxy acids (i.e. salicylic acid) and alpha-hydroxy peels (i.e. glycolic acid). Superficial peels induce controlled injury to the outer layers of the skin, helping to provide a youthful, radiant complexion. Superficial peels are well tolerated with minimal downtime. In certain instances, we offer medium-depth peels, but depending on the individual problem, fractional lasers may offer more predictable and noticeable results.
