Chemical Peel Treatment

Chemical Peel Treatment improves your skin’s texture and appearance. It is used to treat primarily facial skin, discoloration of the skin, brown spots, and scarring. The process removes the outer layers of skin, the dead and dull skin cells. The peel solution is customized to achieve superficial, medium, or deep exfoliation.

Choosing a Dermatologist

Choose your dermatologist with care, so you end up with a person who has expertise in chemical peels. When done correctly, you avoid infection and lasting scars. Follow these steps to find a dermatologist specializing in chemical peels.

  • Ask your primary care physician for referrals. Check this list with family and friends to see if they use any of them.
  • Research each doctor’s credentials. Read reviews to gauge the quality of their experience.
  • Phone each dermatologist’s office to inquire if they are accepting new patients.
  • Set a consultation appointment if they are accepting new patients.
  • At the consultation appointment, review your medical history with the dermatologist. They should ask you about prior medical conditions and any current issues, plus any medications you take. They should also inquire about cosmetic procedures you have had.
  • Your consultation should also include a physical exam in which the doctor inspects your skin, especially the area where you want to receive the chemical peel.
  • During this exam, the doctor will recommend the type of chemical peel that your skin would most benefit from, and that would work best with your facial features.
  • Discuss your expectations of the procedure with the doctor. It would help if you shared with them your motivations. The doctor will apprise you of potential risks.

Make sure you understand how many treatments you might need, how long it will take to heal, and what your results might be. Chemical peels are one of the facial treatments many people have done once or twice per year to create lasting results.
