Chemical Peels

  What Types of Conditions Can Chemical Peels Improve?

Chemical peels are powerful cosmetic treatments, but it is important that you first understand what types of conditions this treatment is designed to improve. Consulting with a dermatologist near me can help you determine if a chemical peel is going to get the results you are after. Below, we’ve listed the types of facial blemishes that a chemical peel can effectively de-emphasize:

 

The Appearance of Dark Spots on the Skin

 

Chemical peels can help reduce the amount of pigmentation present in upper layers of skin. This can reduce the appearance of dark spots or acne marks, and help to smooth out the tone, color, and pigmentation present on your face.

 

The Appearance of Large Pores

 

If you have large facial pores that make you uncomfortable, you may want to lessen their size. Make-up can get caught in large pores and make them appear larger than they are. It’s a better idea to go with chemical peels, which are able to gradually tighten up your large pores, making them less visible. 

 

The Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

 

Chemical peels have also been shown to be effective at minimizing fine to small wrinkles. It is important to note that deep wrinkles are not typically affected by chemical peels. As such, this type of treatment is best suited to clearing up some of the finer or newly developed wrinkles that you may have. It may also take multiple treatments until you begin to see the results of the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles through the use of chemical peels.
