Do you want younger-looking skin? Sun damage, wrinkles and discolorations can impact the tone, texture and youthfulness of your skin. One non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate your skin is with a refreshing chemical peel that removes the dead skin cells and gives your skin a refreshed appearance. Dr. John Anastasatos and our team at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offer chemical peels that can help you look years younger and keep your skin looking fantastic at any age.
Chemical peels work by removing the damaged outer layers of the skin to reveal the fresh, new skin cells waiting underneath. While the term “chemical” can sound harsh, we use natural acids that can gently remove the damaged skin cells and revitalize the skin. Chemical peels can be beneficial to those of all ages, with various levels of peels available to exfoliate and revitalize the skin. The natural acids used can include phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), depending on the type of peel and what issues are being addressed.
Benefits of Facial Chemical Peels
A chemical peel can help refresh the skin, especially for those beginning to see signs of aging. Fine wrinkles, discolorations, uneven texture and slight laxity issues can be improved with a chemical peel. Those with acne or other types of facial scars can also benefit from a chemical peel. At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, we offer mild, moderate and deep chemical peels, determined by the level of skin treatment needed.
Depending on the level of chemical peel you have, there can be redness, flaking and tenderness after the treatment. Moderate to deep chemical peels can take several days to completely heal. However, once the new skin cells are revealed, scars, discolorations and fine wrinkles can be diminished, and the skin can appear firmer and more youthful.
If you have signs of aging or blemishes on your skin, a chemical peel treatment may help you achieve smoother, even skin that looks years younger. To learn more about the chemical peels we offer, contact us at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
