Chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin and reduce wrinkles. They help reduce wrinkles by removing the damaged outer layers of the skin. Many people here in Tampa, Florida have noticed increased skin damage due to sun exposure.
There are many reasons why people look into chemical peels as an option to improve the appearance of their skin. You can, not only reduce wrinkles but, also improve:
- Age and dark spots
- Blemishes and acne scars
- Fine lines
- Rough patches
- Small scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Wrinkle reduction
There are three types of chemical peels which are available. The technique involves carefully applying a chemical to the skin to improve its appearance by removing the damaged outer layers. The new skin is generally smoother, less wrinkled and has a more youthful glow than the old skin.
Light or Superficial Chemical Peel
Removes the outer layer of skin and results in a healthier glow which improves with more treatments. It is generally used to improve blemishes, fine lines, rough patches and uneven skin pigmentation. It can be performed once a month to maintain your healthy glow.
Medium Chemical Peel
Removes the outer layer of skin as well as part of your middle layer. You will see noticeably smoother fresher looking skin from a medium chemical peel which is generally used to improve small scars (including acne scars), reduce wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. May be repeated every 6 – 12 months to maintain your healthy glowing skin.
Deep Chemical Peel
Offers dramatic results but, usually involves some sort of pretreatment to prepare your skin for the peel and facilitate in speeding up the healing process for up to eight weeks. The recovery from a deep chemical peel takes the longest. This peel is used to help reduce deeper wrinkles, scars, sun-damaged skin and blotchy uneven skin pigmentation. One deep chemical peel will produce dramatic results which can last up to 10 years.
According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board certified, plastic facial surgeon, “Living in Florida, I see a lot of patients that have damage from sun exposure. I recommend chemical peels which are a minimally invasive procedure to help remove the damaged outer layers and reduce wrinkles.” Elite Facial Plastic Surgery will help you decide which type of chemical and depth of peel will be most appropriate for your skin.
