Facial Peels

Hard to ignore the vivid signs of aging

At some point, it’s hard to ignore the vivid signs of aging you see in the mirror little wrinkles around your eyes or lips, age spots, maybe some sagging skin.

But today, you can soften the effects of time on your face with many nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Areas of sun damage may improve after chemical peeling.

After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Also, it should be a physical sunscreen and be above SPF 30. Limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and wear a wide-brimmed hat.

 

There used to be few options for turning back the clock without going under the knife.

Who Is a Good Candidate For a Chemical Peel?

FacialPeels_p2Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. If you have darker skin, you may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated.

But you also may be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure. Skin sags, bulges, and more severe wrinkles do not respond well to chemical peels.
