How Can Chemical Peels Address Poor Skin Texture and Tone?
Chemical peels are an excellent way for Houston, Texas, patients to rejuvenate the appearance and health of their skin. At Houston Dermatology Associates, we work with patients to help them choose the chemical peel right for their needs and enhance their skin’s texture and tone using tried-and-true methods. Let’s learn some more about chemical peels and how they work!
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are skin care treatments used to improve the appearance of the skin. They involve the application of a chemical solution, such as glycolic or lactic acid, to remove the top layer of dead and damaged skin cells. This reveals brighter, smoother skin underneath and can also help with issues like acne, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.
What results might I expect from a chemical peel?
Our chemical peels come in different strengths, so it is essential that you talk to a board-certified dermatologist before undergoing treatment. With proper skin care and follow-up treatments, chemical peels can lead to long-term improvements in the texture and appearance of your skin.
What aftercare is needed following a chemical peel?
After a chemical peel treatment, it is vital that you keep your skin protected from the sun and adequately moisturized. Your aesthetician or dermatologist at Houston Dermatology Associates will give you specific instructions for caring for your skin during the healing process. It is also important to avoid picking or scratching at any flaking or peeling skin, as this can cause scarring or infection. Following the instructions closely will reduce the risk of complications and ensure a positive experience and noticeable, desirable results!
