What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is used to accelerate and facilitate the renewal of skin cells through the removal of existing skin cells. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin for a specific time period. Eventually, the top layer of skin sloughs off, revealing more refreshed skin. The team at Pure Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics, LLC in Orlando offer chemical peels to help rejuvenate the skin and restore a more youthful appearance. Our dermatologist, Dr. Debra Grayman, is highly skilled at performing chemical peel treatments on different skin tones.
Treating various skin conditions
We use chemical peels to treat:
Skin pigmentation concerns
Various types of peels provide different benefits
We offer superficial and medium depth peels. Each varies in strength and the ingredients used. Superficial peels are light peels that can be used to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and appearance. Ingredients such as salicylic acid, lactic acid and mandelic acid can provide optimal results with minimal downtime.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a typical ingredient used in medium peels, which penetrate the skin deeper than superficial peels. Medium chemical peels can result in healthier, more youthful looking, and attractive skin. There is typically minimal downtime required.
