Chemical peels have been around for years and can improve the texture and tone of the skin. At the same time, it can benefit patients with conditions such as those above to provide all-over facial rejuvenation and improve both active acne and mild acne scars. Chemical peels come in a variety of types and strengths. They use a combination of ingredients to help in stimulating skin cell turnover quickly and easily.
Chemical peels may be mild or aggressive. Mild peels are lighter and gentler to the skin, but will not provide the same benefits in one treatment as more aggressive services. However, more aggressive peels do require some time off of work and social engagements for healing and recovery, which can take a week or longer. The results from a more aggressive peel are much more noticeable and patients are urged to weigh the benefits of each option when deciding which is right for them.
Dr. Mary Lupo and the team of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology believe in using chemical peels for overall enhancement of the skin. Chemical peels can also be used in conjunction with other services available in our practice, such as dermal fillers, neuromodulators, Exilis radio frequency treatments, etc.
