If your reflection in the mirror looks a little more fatigued or timeworn than you'd like, chemical peels can help rejuvenate your skin.
Chemical peels are a popular, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that help to invigorate the skin. A solution is applied to the face in a dermatologist's office, which encourages the damaged layers of skin to disperse, uncovering the pristine skin underneath. Your North Shore dermatologists are excited to offer this procedure to their patients.
What Chemical Peels Do
Chemical peels exfoliate the outer layers of facial skin that have been exposed to the sun or have signs of aging or scarring. With these layers cleared away, the pristine skin underneath is revealed. A consultation with your Brookline dermatologist will help determine which peel formula is best for your skin.
Once the course of peels is complete, your skin will look remarkably refreshed. Chemical peels not only even out skin tone and texture; they also reduce fine lines, fade scars, sun spots and other environmental damage, and improve the appearance of pores by unclogging them and reducing their size.
How Chemical Peels Are Applied
After you arrive at the Rockoff Center for Dermatology, Laser & Skin Surgery, you'll be prepped for the for your peel with a thorough cleansing of your face. Your Brookline dermatologist will then apply the peel to cover your face evenly. The dermatologists at the Rockoff Center are highly trained to know the precise time at which the peel should be removed for the best possible results. Afterward, a refreshing cream will be applied.
What Happens After a Peel
You may see some results immediately following your session. However, the new skin will be reddened at first, and you may experience some peeling as it heals. Your Boston dermatologist will instruct you on what kinds of creams or lotions you should apply during the healing process, which usually takes between 1 and 7 days. You may need one or more repeat procedures to get your desired results.
