How do chemical peels enhance the skin?

iStock 1058389922At the practice of Dr. Sanjay Lalla of West Orange, NJ, patients have access to a wide range of services for the skin and body. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, he is known for his surgical treatments, but also provides a range of personal treatments that do not require surgery. For example, many patients who are looking to improve their facial appearance may not be a candidate for a facelift or brow lift, but might find results with other therapies such as chemical peels. 

How do chemical peels work? 

By blending certain ingredients together and administering them onto cleansed skin, they can provide deep exfoliation. Some chemical peels are more superficial and provide mild exfoliation of the skin. These chemical peels require far less downtime and recovery than more aggressive peels, though these deeper peels offer the best results in a single treatment. Determining which chemical peel is right for your depends on what you want to improve, how severe your skin is damaged, and how much time you can take off of work and other activities for recovery and healing. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Sanjay Lalla and his team will evaluate the skin and help recommend the chemical peel most appropriate for an individual’s needs. 

What can chemical peels do? 

Many patients choose chemical peels if they have a variety of concerns with their skin as these versatile treatments can address many issues with a single treatment. Chemical peels can address the following concerns: 

  • Poor skin texture and tone
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damaged skin

Chemical peels range from mild to aggressive, and should always be administered by an experienced professional for safety.
