Learn About Chemical Peels
Women and men in Tucson may choose chemical peel treatments to achieve the following aesthetic goals:
- Treat acne and acne scars
- Correct uneven pigmentation and sun damage
- Smooth out wrinkles and fine lines
- Refresh and soften rough or scaly skin
Dr. Rao will spend time with you evaluating the color and condition of your skin and guiding you to the best treatment for your needs.
Chemical peel treatments are used to remove damaged outer layers of skin and range from light to deep. Deeper treatments may involve a pre-treatment process to achieve better results. During the treatment, the chemical solution is brushed on and left to penetrate for a specific amount of time, depending on your needs and the type of peel. Then the chemical solution is neutralized.
Following a chemical peel, a person's skin will gradually slough off over the course of days or weeks. The extent of the recovery from a peel depends on the type and depth of the peel. Ultimately fresh, healthier-looking skin appears to replace the old.
