Chemical Peels

Aging of facial skin can lead to many changes which include discoloration, wrinkling and lines of the skin. People who have struggled with acne may also have scarring as a result as well. Since great skin is our best accessory, glowing and healthy skin can boost self-confidence. Some people want to look younger, but are not quite ready to have surgery or want to have surgery yet. For these patients, procedures such as chemical peels can resurface and rejuvenate the skin.*

*Individual results may vary.

Chemical peel solutions are applied to the skin and work by removing the top layers. These layers “peel” off like a thin scab over the first few days. On a microscopic level, this creates “injury” to the skin, which then signals the deeper skin cells to create new cells. Discoloration is improved and wrinkles smoothed out. As a result, the skin appears more bright and youthful.*

*Individual results may vary.

Dr. Wong will perform a medical examination and discuss your concerns with you. She will work with you in planning the timing of this procedure as it can have approximately a week of downtime. Some peels are considered superficial and patients can return to work the same day. Medium-depth peels will penetrate deeper into the skin, which gives a more dramatic result, but also requires approximately 5 days of downtime. It is important to not try and speed up the process by picking at the flaking skin as this can cause permanent scarring. Instead, keeping the skin moisturized during this process is essential optimizing your results.

Two weeks later, the age spots were significantly improved and the overall appearance of her skin was more youthful. She is not wearing make up in both photographs.*
