Your epidermis, otherwise known as your skin, is the largest organ your body has. The natural aging process, as well as other external factors, can leave your face with unwanted blemishes. The professionals at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery are dedicated experts that recognize the importance of healthy facial tissue. We provide clients with several top-of-the-line chemical peel treatments to choose from. It is always best to get an expert opinion, especially when it comes to the facial skin. Dr. Kenneth Sumida and his team can help you determine if a chemical peel is right for you during a consultation, or we can discuss other options. However, the information below will provide you with a baseline before your initial consultation.
What is a Chemical Peel?
These peels use a chemical solution to target the uppermost layer of the skin. This process consists of the chemical solution being applied to the skin, and then it is gently removed after a set amount of time. Chemical peel treatments are designed to enhance the texture and clarity of the skin. There are different types of chemical peels, all of which vary in strength. At your initial consultation, we will go over your medical history and skin goals, which will help to better determine which peel or process to use.
What Can It Treat?
Chemical peels are amazing facial treatments that allow clients to experience skin rejuvenation. If you have struggled with acne in the past or are left with acne scarring, a chemical peel can help to even out your overall skin texture. If you notice your skin has uneven pigmentation or is sun-damaged in some areas, a peel may alleviate that issue. Light wrinkles and fine lines can also vanish thanks to a chemical peel.
It is important to note that chemical peels should not be used to treat everything related to your facial skin. Deep wrinkles and facial lines may not be affected by a peel. If you have loose or sagging skin, a peel will not really help to tighten it. Although a chemical peel should not be used in certain instances, Dr. Kenneth Sumida and his staff can help to determine other procedures that may be able to help you.
