Chemical peels are a cosmetic procedure that can improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and address a variety of skin issues. They can range from superficial and requiring no down time to deep peels that have a recovery period. Chemical Peels are a very popular choice for renewing skin cells among Dr. Grayman’s patients at Pure Skin Dermatology in Orlando.

Chemical peels work by removing the outer most layers of skin, taking away any damaged and dead skin cells. This leaves the patient with a radiant looking face. The new skin is smoother and fresher looking than the older skin. Patients can expect an improved appearance almost immediately after the procedure. There may be peeling and redness that appear several days post treatment. This is common and will go away to leave patients with a rejuvenated appearance.

All of our appointments for chemical peels begin with a consultation in which patients can discuss the concerns they have with their skin and the appearance they are trying to achieve through chemical peels. This allows Dr. Grayman to determine which course of treatment is best for your individual situation. Some patients may want to get rid of deep wrinkles and would benefit more from Restylane or Botox. Other patients may have severe acne problems that would be best treated with an alternative procedure. We believe in presenting all of the options and developing the treatment plan that fits you best.

Once it is determined that a chemical peel is right for you, Dr. Grayman will set up an appointment for the actual peel. She will apply a mixture of chemicals to the face where they will remain for a specified period (typically a few minutes). From there, the chemicals are neutralized and the treatment is complete. Patients are sent home with instructions and products for caring for the skin, including specialized moisturizes.
