Why patients in the Short Hills, NJ area should consider chemical peels
Patients with sun-damaged skin, scarring, or wrinkles on the face might approach a provider at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills to find out what treatment options are available to them to enhance their skin’s appearance and health. Patients of the Short Hills, NJ area will often find that chemical peels are a highly desirable, and effective, way of addressing various skin imperfections.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is the application of specific acid solutions onto the skin to remove the upper layer of dead skin cells. In doing this, patients will bring forth new, rejuvenated skin cells that restore youthfulness and the appearance of health. Chemical peels have been used for decades to rejuvenate the skin and address common skin concerns.
What can chemical peels treat?
Patients who use chemical peels may be dealing with conditions such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and complexion
- Clogged pores
- Acne scarring
Chemical peels are designed for addressing the issues above, though they should not be confused with other treatments that are known for improving pigmentation of the skin, removing broken blood vessels, improve deep scarring, change the size of the pores, or improve skin laxity that can cause the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
What types of chemical peels are available?
There are a wide range of chemical peel types, including superficial peels, medium peels, and aggressive, stronger peels. The more aggressive the peel, the longer the recovery time, but the more dramatic the final results. Patients who have stronger peels will find that they need to schedule downtime from social activities as the skin heals.
