There are several options for individuals who are wanting to improve the appearance of acne, texture and brown spots on their skin, chemical peels at your dermatologist office are an good option. There are several different types, which generally work promoting cell turnover on the skin. Chemical peels ultimately leave skin brighter, clearer, and with fewer visible imperfections.
While you may experience some light flaking following a peel, one of the beauties is that there is minimal downtime. Although you certainly can continue to work, etc, peels can range from a “freshening” with hardly any peeling to flaking for up to 10 days.
Chemical peels can involve hydroquinone, acids or retinoids. It depends on the condition of your skin and the desired results as to exactly which formula is best for you. Dr. Sharon Meyer is an experienced dermatologist who can evaluate you and help decide which chemical peel will achieve the best results for your skin.
