CHEMICAL PEEL TREATMENTS

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL FACE PEEL TREATMENT?

Chemical peels are an effective and minimally invasive tool to improve the look and texture of your skin. As the name implies, this method of facial rejuvenation involves the application of dilute acid to the skin to cause a controlled injury to the superficial layers of the skin. 

Depending on the type and depth of the peel, they can be effective in treating sun damage, brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, melasma and more. Dr. Ortleb offers several types of chemical peels; each having different uses, expected outcomes, and “downtime”.

WHY SHOULD A CHEMICAL PEEL BE YOUR NEXT TREATMENT?

A LOW-RISK WAY TO IMPROVE THE SKIN’S COLOR, TONE, AND TEXTURE

Professional chemical peel treatments are a safe way to remove damaged skin cells to allow newer, healthier cells to the surface. While not all chemical peels are treated equally, most professional treatments are safe for all skin tones when administered correctly. A consultation with our experienced dermatologist, Dr. Ortleb will determine what type of peel is best for you based on skin type, your skin's current condition, and desired outcome. 

PEELS CAN MAKE YOUR SKINCARE PRODUCTS MORE EFFECTIVE

Not only do chemical peels increase collagen production, but they can also work to reveal smoother skin that is more receptive to face treatments, serums, and moisturizers. Your skincare products perform better after a chemical peel because there are no longer dead skin cells preventing their penetration. 

CAN HELP TO GET RID OF ACNE AND SOFTEN SCARS

Chemical peels such as salicylic acid deeply penetrate the skin to unclog pores, dissolve blackheads on the surface and can help to fade acne marks or scars. Most results depend on different factors including what type of peel was performed, how often you receive one, and your specific skin type.
