As the skin ages, it becomes thinner and less elastic. Collagen and elastin, the tissues that keep the skin firm, become weaker over time. Gravity, internal, and external factors exert a constant downward pull. As a result of a lifetime of sun exposure, superficial blemishes may become more noticeable.

Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. It is typically performed on the face, neck or hands. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and sometimes to peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Our dermatologists have used various peeling agents for many years and are experts in performing multiple types of chemical peels.
Chemical peeling is often used to treat fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth. Wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors can often be reduced or even eliminated with this procedure.
Mild scarring and certain types of acne can also be treated with chemical peels. In addition, pigmentation of the skin in the form of sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, splotching due to taking birth control pills, and skin that is dull in texture and color may be improved with chemical peeling.
Chemical peeling may be combined with laser treatments to achieve cost-effective skin rejuvenation customized to the needs of the individual patient. Generally, fairer skinned and light haired patients are ideal candidates for chemical peels. Darker skin types may also experience good results, depending upon the type of skin problem encountered.
