Why consider chemical peels?

Chemical peels are versatile. They can be performed on the face, neck, or hands, for reduction of:
  • Fine lines around the mouth (smoker’s lip lines), and under the eyes.
  • Wrinkles caused by aging and sun exposure.
  • Acne.
  • Acne and other superficial scarring.
  • Freckles, age spots, and melasma.
  • Rough skin texture.
Chemical peels are not a solution for every skin problem, but they are an effective adjunct to combination anti-aging programs. Chemical peels can be used in conjunction with injectable neuromodulators and dermal fillers, and to refine skin before or after cosmetic surgery.

Who is a good candidate for chemical peels?
