If you want to get rid of those fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, but don’t want cosmetic surgery, consider chemical peels. Chemical peels help reduce the appearance of those lines and wrinkles, smooth the skin texture, and help with hydration, firming your skin.
What’s In A Chemical Peel?
At our skincare & laser offices, our skincare specialists use NeoStrata chemical peels. Each peel is personalized for the person in order to best address his or her particular needs. Depending on your skin, the peels can contain glycolic acid, mandelic acid, citric acid and retinol. Here’s a little more about of each of these chemicals:
- Glycolic acid: derived from cane sugar this exfoliates, increases skin thickness, evens pigment, clears acne and unclogs pores
- Citric acid: an antioxidant this also includes all the benefits of glycolic acid
- Mandelic acid: evens pigment, controls oil production and is antibacterial
- Retinol 3% peel: increases skin thickness, enhances collagen, and reduces acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
The Benefits of Chemical Peels
Whether you skin is oily or dry, chemical peels are safe for all skin types. Our skincare specialists recommend that you get a treatment every 3-4 weeks in the beginning with maintenance every 8-12 weeks thereafter.
These peels have proven results for a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines/wrinkles
- Teen and adult acne
- Keratosis pilaris - a common skin condition, that looks like tiny bumps on the skin
- Dry/dehydrated skin
- Other skin texture concerns
