What are chemical peels and what can they achieve?

Patients of the Williamsville, NY area who are dealing with tired, dull, and discolored facial skin may be seeking ways to rejuvenate their appearance. If you are seeking younger, healthier-looking skin, Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics may suggest the benefits of chemical peels.

What is a chemical peel?

Many patients hear “chemical peel” and think of a painful and maybe harmful procedure. However, chemical peels have been safely used for decades in achieving healthier skin cells by exfoliating away old, dead skin cells and stimulating the replacement of new skin cells. This not only clears away dull skin, but also allows the body to create new collagen that plumps and volumizes the skin. This can also smooth away fine lines and wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance.

What happens during the process of a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are done right in our office under the care and expertise of our doctor. A special blend of chemical agents are hand-selected by our provider to give the patient the correct strength and boost they need based on their unique skin conditions. More superficial chemical peels apply chemicals onto the skin and leave them for the remainder of the day, while others require the chemical peels to be removed after just a few minutes as the ingredients are activated. Superficial chemical peels are more comfortable, but take several treatments to provide the same results as a more aggressive, deeper peel may. During a consultation appointment, our doctor will consult with a patient to determine the best type of peel for their needs, and explain any downtime or recovery expectations.
