A chemical peel is an effective, non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to improve your complexion’s tone, texture and appearance. People choose to have chemical peels done for a variety of reasons, but how do you know if you’re a good candidate for the procedure?
What Chemical Peels Can Treat
Chemical peels are typically performed on the face, but they can be safe on other areas of the body, too. They’re an effective way to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns without any needles or incisions.
Most often, a patient opts for a peel when they are trying to eliminate or reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles and dark spots. Peels are notorious for restoring a youthful appearance because they reduce fine lines under the eyes or around the mouth, and they also reduce the prominence of wrinkles resulting from aging or sun damage.
Even if you don’t have any of these concerns, your skin can still benefit from a peel. A peel improves uneven skin tone, dry skin and smooths out the surface of the skin.
Types of Chemical Peels
At Breeze Laser Center, we have a variety of effective chemical peels available to choose from. Some of our peels are specifically designed for the hands, back or around the eye area, while others are specially formulated for a man’s face, such as our gentleman’s facial. Our peels range in levels of strength and intensity, so you are sure to find the perfect chemical peel for your unique situation.
Who Can Get a Chemical Peel?
The best candidates for a chemical peel have superficial skin problems, like minor blemishes and imperfections. Things like severe wrinkles, deep acne scarring and intense sagging don’t respond well to a chemical peel. These may be better treated with laser resurfacing.
Most healthy people are considered to be good candidates for a chemical peel, and the likelihood of a complication is very rare. As always, it is important to be honest with our doctor about your medical history for the best results.
