If your skin shows acne scars, age spots, or discoloration and wrinkles from photoaging (skin damage from the sun), chemical peels at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, CA may be the answer. Chemical peels are non-invasive skin treatments that remove skin damage with a special solution that removes skin layers to reveal new skin. Here are some common questions you may have about chemical peels.
What Kind of Chemical Peels Can I Get?
A light chemical peel is a good option for skin with dryness, light scars, or uneven pigmentation, since it removes the top layer of skin – the epidermis. Medium and deeper chemical peels are ideal for wrinkles, uneven skin texture, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. Basically, the deeper the peel, the deeper it goes.
Am I a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?
You are a good candidate for a chemical peel if you are overall healthy and have skin issues that a peel treatment can fix. Contrary to the belief that darker skin tones shouldn’t get chemical peels, they can usually be treated effectively with superficial chemical peels.
How Do I Treat My Skin Before and After the Peel?
Before the treatment, do not spend too much time in the sun to avoid abnormal pigmentation. Wear sunscreen before and after the treatment, as you should be doing anyways. Of course, our team will make sure to give you exact instructions.
