Chemical peels can be helpful for wrinkles, acne, and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.
There are several types of chemical peels:
- Light peels to remove superficial wrinkles
- Medium peels
- Deep peels for more severe conditions.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face.
A skin rejuvenation program is often used in conjunction with either chemical peels or laser wrinkle removal to reduce the fine wrinkles of the face, lighten areas of hyperpigmentation (increased pigment) and produce a softer texture to the skin.

We invite you to inquire about laser skin resurfacing and hope it can help you achieve smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.
