Which Skin Conditions Can Chemical Peels Treat?

Are you struggling with embarrassing skin issues like acne, wrinkles, or sunspots? Well, you are not alone as countless Americans also report various skin conditions. Many people, regardless of age or gender, struggle with skin issues that can make them feel uncomfortable in their own skin. Acne, for instance, affects up to 50 million Americans annually.

But no matter how many toners, creams, specialty face washes or masks you try, nothing restores your natural glow. Luckily, a chemical peel can be just the ticket to giving your skin a fresh start. Board-certified plastic surgeons, like Dr. Sanjay Lalla, deploy chemical peels as treatments for a broad swath of skin conditions, ranging from age spots to skin discoloration.

In this blog post, we will explore the diverse types of skin conditions that chemical peels can treat and why they have become so popular in recent years.

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical Peels, also known as skin resurfacing or chemexfoliation, improve your skin tone and texture by using a chemical solution to remove the damaged layers of skin, allowing healthy ones to take their place.

Chemical peels harness special acids to eliminate dead cells from your face without any pain or discomfort. Depending on the type of chemical peel used, it can penetrate deeper layers within your epidermis to eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, or uneven pigmentation such as age spots & freckles.

Additionally, some chemical peels yield an anti-aging effect by stimulating collagen production, which keeps your complexion looking youthful longer than other traditional skincare methods.

Skin Conditions Treated with Chemical Peels

Are you fed up with dull, lifeless skin? Have pesky problems like acne and sunspots been driving you crazy? Then you may want to rethink the benefits of chemical peels! For skin conditions ranging from acne and acne scars to hyperpigmentation, chemical peel treatments are waiting! Here’s how chemical peels help treat common skin conditions affecting countless patients across the country.

Acne & Acne Scars

It can seem embarrassing and frustrating for people to treat and look at acne and acne scars. Superficial chemical peels can treat mild acne as this type of peel targets the outer layer of your skin. The chemicals in this mild peel – salicylic and glycolic acid – contain anti-inflammatory properties; so, say, “Goodbye” to large pores and excess oil! But for those looking to treat their acne scars, your plastic surgeon may suggest a more advanced chemical peel to dig deeper than the surface. Knock out those annoying breakouts and acne scars with a quick chemical peel!

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s Feet, the fine lines that appear when you smile, are the initial sign of aging. Crow’s Feet manifest as your skin begins to lose its elasticity. This type of treatment reduces the appearance of lines while encouraging the growth of new skin cells. Furthermore, mild chemical peels leave your skin’s texture feeling soft and smooth!

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

This may seem like a hard pill to swallow, but fine lines and wrinkles are natural signs of aging. Since chemical peels exfoliate the first layer of skin, the stimulation supports collagen production. Collagen is a protein within your skin that improves your skin’s elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Undo the aging process and have confidence in your skin.

Sun Damage

Each summer, we all hope to achieve the perfect summer tan. But lounging out in the sun for a long time can cause sunburn, dark spots, sunspots, and an uneven skin tone. With some help from chemical peels, the sun-damaged skin gets replaced with fresher, even-toned skin. Meanwhile, a deep chemical peel will target the melanin-producing cells in your skin to repair any hyperpigmentation and visible dark spots.

Skin Discoloration

Chemical peels are the perfect treatment for anyone noticing skin discoloration. For patients who notice more age spots, have patchy brown spots across their face or do not enjoy their freckles, a mild chemical peel will fade each condition away. Afterward, you will finally feel comfortable and confident in your bright and even skin tone!
