What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A precise chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother, vibrant and, brighter than the old skin. Ageless RX is proud to utilize SkinMedica chemical peels.
Chemical peels can dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tone and texture. Chemical peels are among our most popular skin treatments, treating a variety of skin concerns. Many patients enjoy the benefits of chemical peels to simply clarify, brighten and polish the skin while other clients may choose a series of stronger chemical peels to improve more severe freckling, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and age-related facial lines and wrinkles.
Chemical Peels can benefit all complexions, even the most sensitive, and can be performed on any part of the body, most commonly face, decollete, hands and, back. A chemical peel has dual cosmetic and medical benefits. Cosmetically, skin renewal improves pore size, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. Medically, a chemical peel can improve acne, benign keratoses, and actinic keratoses. Chemical peels are recommended to those who want a more rapid improvement than a topical product could provide, and who don’t have time for laser treatments. We recommend a series of treatments with a minimum of six for optimum results.
