Chemical peels have been used for decades in enhancing the skin’s texture and tone when certain problems and conditions arise. It is a reliable method of removing dead skin cells and stimulating skin cell turnover for a fresher, more attractive appearance to the skin. Many patients fear the idea of a chemical peel, though there are a wide range of types and strengths for patients to choose from. Dr. Pamela Carr and her team at Carr Dermatology in Sugar Land, TX encourage patients to ask about this treatment for their skin and choose the one most appropriate for them.
Why might I want a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is an effective way of rejuvenating the skin and can be done regularly to maintain skin health and appearance. There are many reasons why a patient might consider undergoing chemical peels. These treatments:
- Can improve the appearance of scars. Scarring on the skin, including acne scarring, can be significantly improved and reduced with the help of chemical peels, especially more aggressive treatments.
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Aging skin can cause patients to look older than they feel, and result in a reduction in self-confidence and self-esteem. With a chemical peel, the skin can be smoothed and refreshed for a more youthful look.
- Range in strength, so patients can choose the one that fits their lifestyle. Chemical peels can be more superficial or aggressive. Superficial chemical peels cause slight redness but most patients can return to their normal activities, while aggressive chemical peels provide dramatic results but do require some time to heal.
- Are versatile. Whether you want to improve the appearance of your skin or treat certain conditions such as acne or melasma, chemical peels can help. Since they address a wide range of skin concerns, they are a great solution for patients who want to avoid several treatments for different problems.
