More and more women and men are turning to one of today’s most popular aesthetic cosmetic procedures – a chemical peel – to treat acne scars, blemishes, large pores, age spots, uneven pigmentation and pre-cancerous growths.
It’s true. A chemical peel is a great way to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
The facial peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world – it was even popular in ancient Rome and Egypt. Today, peels are trending because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
A chemical peel is a controlled injury to the skin. An alpha or beta hydroxide acid, resorcinol or other acid solution is applied to the skin, removing its damaged, outer layers, smoothing and enhancing its texture.
Patients with light hair and fair skin are great candidates for chemical peels, but those who have darker skin may still achieve good results. Although chemical peels can improve the appearance of fine lines, they are not designed to treat deep wrinkles.
Dr. Guarnieri offers a variety of peels, such as the VI Peel and the Vivite Peel – peels which range from lighter, skin-sensitive peels to deeper, more potent peels. He tailors the strengths of the peel to your individual needs to achieve optimal results with the least risk and down time.
Dr. Guarnieri will carefully evaluate your skin to determine how to provide you with the best possible results.
