The chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves administering a chemical solution to the skin in order to damage and remove its outer layers. This treatment is typically performed by a plastic surgeon or other medical professional and can help exfoliate the skin to address a wide range of skin concerns. Dr. Sean R. Weiss of Metairie, LA, offers a number of different chemical peels to provide skin rejuvenation for adult men and women.
What Can Be Treated Using a Chemical Peel?
Patients with several issues can enjoy the treatment of them all with a single chemical peel! Chemical peels are used for treating various skin issues and conditions, which may include:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Surgical scarring
- Large pores
What Type of Chemical Peels Can I Choose From?
There are several types of chemical peels available based on the type of active ingredient used in the peel solution as well as factors such as intensity level. More aggressive peels use stronger ingredients that will result in more dramatic changes in the skin but also longer recovery and healing time. We also provide more superficial chemical peels, which may cause some redness of the face but allow most patients to return back to their normal activities. To see more dramatic results with these mild peels, patients may have to have them done more often over the course of several weeks.
Why Should I Choose a Chemical Peel for Skin Rejuvenation?
There are many benefits associated with getting a chemical peel done for your skin needs. Some of these benefits may include:
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Diminished appearance of surgical scars
- Reduced acne, acne scarring, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation
- A more youthful appearance overall!
