How are chemical peels performed?

A chemical peel is a treatment that removes layers of skin by application of an acid to the skin surface. The technique of application is an important factor in determining the effectiveness of the peel. After healing, new, regenerated skin gives the face a more youthful and balanced appearance. Common problems such as dullness, roughness of the skin, blocked pores, acne, uneven pigmentation and wrinkles on the skin are improved. Different kinds of acids, in different concentrations and formulas are available for correcting different problems. You will have a pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Diwan in order to determine the appropriate type of peel based on your unique skin type and condition. Dr. Diwan is trained in effectively treating patients of all different skin types and colors. Different peeling agents are used for the different conditions mentioned above.

How long is recovery after a chemical peel?

The healing time depends on the type of peel and can range from one hour to two weeks. You should feel well enough to return to work shortly after a superficial peel, but may choose to take a couple days off or work from home if you are experiencing high levels of peeling. 2016-11-11-10_55_04-chemical-peel-before-after-gallery These photos are from a specific patient. Results may vary. Schedule a personalized consultation with our doctor to learn more.

When will I notice the results of my chemical peel?

Once the skin has healed, the treated area will appear younger and healthier as a new glowing layer of skin is revealed. You will notice improvements in the tone and texture of your skin and signs of aging or sun damage including wrinkles, will also be reduced or eliminated. Patients often see impressive results with their chemical peels and choose to make these treatments a part of their professional skin care regimen. Dr. Diwan and her staff can perform regular light chemical peel treatments to help you maintain beautiful looking skin at any age.
