Your skin has been hiding something from you–it is flawless. Under that surface layer of blemishes and imperfections, a new, beautiful layer of skin is waiting to reveal itself.
Breeze Laser Center offers a wide variety of chemical peels, which eliminate the superficial layer of skin in a controlled, targeted manner, making way for a new layer of skin to grow in its place. By promoting the growth of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin, chemical peels reduce the appearance of blemishes, smooth out the texture of skin, and, depending on the strength of the peel, can help reverse some sun damage and other signs of aging.
Bottom line: The purpose of a chemical peel is to erase imperfections and improve skin tone and texture by removing layers of damaged skin. Read on to learn what’s involved in different types of chemical peels and which might be best for you.
What Kinds of Chemical Peels Are Available?

What Can I Expect from a Chemical Peel?
The experience of a peel varies greatly, and is dependent on the strength of the peel. In a light chemical peel, patients might feel some discomfort or mild stinging, but the deepest peels often require anesthesia. A consultant at Breeze Laser Center will help you decide which treatment is most suitable for you.
How Many Chemical Peels Will I Need, and What Will Recovery Be Like?
This is also dependent on the depth of your peel. Light peels require little to no down time, whereas a deep peel may require several weeks of recovery time. Light to medium peels may be repeated on multiple visits to achieve the desired results, whereas a deeper peel will usually only need to be applied once, and the results may last up to ten years.
Patients will often experience some redness, dryness, or peeling after a treatment, and we will recommend exactly which products and sunscreens are safe to use as a part of your after-care regimen. We recommend that patients avoid the sun while recovering in order to protect their fragile new layer of skin.
