The use of chemical peels for clearer, more youthful skin

Patients with imperfect skin may not realize all the options available to them, including surgical and nonsurgical solutions. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sanjay Lalla, understands how important it is to look and feel your best. Patients who are dealing with blemishes on the skin, the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and a host of other skin concerns can ask about options such as chemical peels.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a special procedure that is performed to significantly improve the skin’s texture and tone. It is often used to address:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin spots/blemishes
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Large pores
  • Sunspots/sun-damaged skin
  • Poor texture and tone

The chemical peel uses a special blend of ingredients that activate the skin cell turnover on the skin. It allows dead skins to be removed and freshens the face with more youthful, fresh skin underneath. This exfoliation process is done quickly and easily right in our office, and is considered a non-invasive treatment.

What type of chemical peel do I need?

There are a myriad of chemical peel options available to patients at the practice of Dr. Sanjay Lalla. Some chemical peels are very mild and can be performed on a more regular basis, while other chemical peels are more aggressive and might require downtime from school, work, and social activities. These stronger chemical peels, however, can be done once and help achieve dramatic changes to the skin over time. Deciding on the chemical peel right for your needs starts with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation to determine not only if you are a good candidate, but which one is appropriate in addressing your unique skin imperfections.
