Chemical Peels for Facial Rejuvenation
Chemical peels are a convenient way to improve your complexion because of how easy they are to fit into your regular skincare regimen.
Many of Dr. Lawton’s patients choose to get light chemical peels once a month to keep their skin looking radiant and youthful and delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Others choose it to combat acne scars or pigmented areas of skin.
Light peels only cause mild reddening of the skin and do not require any downtime at all, making them easy to fit into your schedule. You can receive a peel in the morning and then get on with your life in the afternoon.
Deeper peels tend to lead to more peeling and blistering, which means that you might want to take a short break from your regular social calendar. Recovery includes avoiding sun exposure and applying ointments and ice packs.
Candidate for Chemical Peels
Light chemical peels use mild acids and are, therefore, suitable for practically anyone. Patients who undergo the procedure typically do so to deal with fine lines, dryness, mild sun-damaged skin, and acne scars.
Medium chemical peels target the middle layers of the skin and are for moderate acne scars, wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin.
The deepest peels are for patients with the most serious wrinkles or severely sun-damaged skin.
If you’re unsure which treatment you should choose, Dr. Tenley Lawton can consult with you on the right course of treatment.
