Removing Age and Sun Spots with Chemical Peels

January 1, 2020

The wonders of the skin, the body’s largest organ, are simply underappreciated. In its many layers, the skin performs essential functions for us that range from as simple as “holding everything in” to a task as complex as helping metabolize fuel into energy. One of the dynamic features of skin is that the outer layer is constantly doing its job and then leaving.

We don’t shed our skin in a dramatic transformation, but rather we lose particles of it naturally through the course of a day and when we dry after a bath or shower, for example. Our skin is continually renewing itself. Yet, that outer layer begins to need some help, for most of us, as life goes on.

Lines, folds, and wrinkles begin to appear eventually, and the appearance of these can be reduced noticeably with a well-established process known as chemical peel. Uneven coloring, too, can be addressed with the chemical peel. Several different approaches to chemical peels are available, and each in its way can help reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth; relieve wrinkles and sun damage; reduce the appearance of mild scars, age spots, freckles, and dark patches; and leave your skin feeling and looking fresher and younger.

Numerous Options for Selection

At Dermatology Consultants, our experience has led us to offer numerous approaches to the chemical peel. The array is intended to offer a suitable option for each person’s unique situation and goals.

Our Beta Peel is a PCA treatment the exfoliates and supports cell turnover on the skin’s surface, making it an excellent choice for uneven skin tone, fine lines, or even rosacea. Enzyme Delight uses natural fruit acids – cherry-berry, pumpkin, and orange – to brighten and nourish the skin. The mandelic acid peel adheres gently to the skin and peels away to allow new skin growth, fading the effects of sun damage, dark spots, and uneven skin tone.

You may have heard of Retin-A, a peel enriched with vitamin A that removes dry skin and permits better absorption of topical nutrients and medications. Our Smoothing Body Peel gets to hard-to-reach places such as the back and areas that see lots of wear-and-tear, including the hands and feet, to exfoliate, nourish, soften, and hydrate the skin. The Vi Peel goes to work at the cellular level, building elastin and collagen to smooth and tighten the skin, shrink enlarged pores, and address fine lines and wrinkles. Vi is particularly effective with pigmentation issues and acne.

At Dermatology Consultants, we have applied our wealth of experience to pre-screen the many methods of chemical peels and offer you a proven variety to assure you of access to the one that suits you best. Here you’ll meet professionals dedicated to helping you look the way you want to look – and feel the way you want to feel about it. Just contact us to get started.
