Acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles are common problems that are faced by most. Some people either learn to deal with these issues or they cover them up with makeup, but what if there was a way you could get rid of these problems altogether? Thanks to Urban Allure in San Francisco and chemical peels, this is now possible.
What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are a skin resurfacing treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands by removing the top layers. The skin that grows back is smoother and younger-looking. This can be done in the comfort of our office as an outpatient procedure.
Chemical peels can be used to treat:
- Acne scars
- Aging skin
- Crow’s feet
- Sun-damaged skin
How Does It Work?
A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually reveal new skin layers. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
What to Expect During the Treatment
When you arrive for your treatment, first your skin will be thoroughly cleaned and prepped to make sure the treated area is free from any oils. Then one or more solutions will be applied to areas of your skin to control the process. The solution is left on your skin for a set amount of time before it is removed and you are able to leave our office.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Ultimately, our skin care professional will let you know if a chemical peel is right for you. However, most people who are interested in these treatments qualify for them. Chemical peels are a perfect way to get rid of those crow’s feet that have been bothering you for years or those sunspots that seem to have appeared overnight.
