Understanding Chemical Peels of Today

Dermatologists use chemical peels to treat a variety of conditions, including acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and aging skin, by gently exfoliating the outer layers of your skin, smoothing and improving its tone and texture.

In the past, chemical peels were harsh and aggressive treatments that left skin red and peeling for several weeks. But, chemical peels we provide today are very different from the chemical peels of the past. At Renew Dermatology, we offer a variety of peels customized to your skin's needs. Superficial peels exfoliate your skin without excessive peeling.

Our peels are quick and have minimal to no downtime-most people return to their normal routines immediately. While many people choose face peels, we also offer peels targeting your chest, back, arms, legs and feet (one of our favorites!).

In a note from PCA SKIN, the chemical peel process is explained, "When performing PCA SKIN peels, clinicians use varying blends of peel solutions in a layering technique to determine the depth of penetration. This technique is possible due to the fact that PCA SKIN liquid peel formulations are self-neutralizing. Applying multiple layers increases the peel penetration in a controlled manner. After peel application, nutritive topicals and calming moisturizers with SPF are applied, and the patient leaves with a glowing, healthy complexion."

PCA Skin notes that, "When a little of something is good, more is not always better. This is especially true with skin treatments. Inflammation is the underlying cause of many skin conditions we treat, and triggering irritation with overly aggressive treatments will only worsen the situation. By treating the skin gently and infusing it with beneficial, nourishing and strengthening ingredients during professional treatments, you will consistently see faster, more dramatic results. This is our progressive, not aggressive, treatment philosophy. Chasing quick results through aggressive treatments typically leads to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, acne breakouts and other complications. If the goal is healthy, beautiful skin, a low-dose approach is usually the best choice."
