Our Chicago, IL dermatology office offers the most effective chemical peels for skin rejuvenation

We all have that desire to continue to look youthful, even as we age. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin loses collagen and elastin while the elements begin taking their toll, directly impacting our skin’s tone and texture. At Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery, we offer chemical peels, which are a great way to rejuvenate your skin. We provide a wide range of the most effective chemical peels, based on your need.

Choosing the right chemical peel

Picking a chemical peel depends on the extent of your skin damage. Some patients simply need to restore lost hydration and balance oil production. Other patients may have years of sun damage that is more difficult to reverse. During your consultation, we’ll be able to assess your skin concerns and come up with a recommendation based upon your desired results. There are three main types of chemical peels: light, medium, and deep.


What skin conditions do chemical peels correct?

Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, stripping off the top layer of dead and damaged skin cells to allow healthy cells to surface. They can be used to correct the following conditions:


Irregular pigmentation

Enlarged pores

Acne

Sun damage

Rough skin texture

Scarring

Lines and winkles

Preparation and recovery

Prior to receiving a chemical peel, you’ll be instructed to use a special cleanser and apply sunscreen daily. This helps ensure that the skin peels evenly. Depending on the type of peel you receive, we may use one acid or a combination of acids. Superficial peels have almost no down time, while medium and deep peels may require several days or weeks of recovery. After your peel it’s important to follow our skin care guidelines to promote proper healing.
