West Palm Beach residents enjoy some of the best climate and outdoor activities in the country. Although these recreational activities are fun, they can come with a price. Environmental damage from the sun and other factors can prematurely age your skin, leaving you with sun spots, wrinkles, and rough skin that makes you look old and weathered before your time. Other skin problems can be caused by other factors. For example, scars are often the result of childhood acne, trauma, or some surgical procedures. Many area residents are left wondering about their treatment options, and a growing number of them are looking for alternatives to surgery. The good news is that chemical peel treatments can help with skin problems like these and do not involve surgery and the risks that come with it.
What are Chemical Peels?
A medical-grade chemical peel treats conditions like lines, wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone by gently removing the outer layer of skin. This epidermis layer contains much of the skin imperfections you are dealing with. Its removal forces your body to push up newly developed skin tissue that is fresh and displays fewer skin imperfections.
It is important to understand that chemical peel treatments are not one-size-fits-all. We can develop a customized skin care regimen for you that aims to minimize any skin imperfections and maintain beauty, healthy skin for the long-term. A simple TCA chemical peel treatment at our office near West Palm Beach may be used in that plan, depending on the situation.
What Happens During a Chemical Peel?
When you visit our office in Stuart or Palm Beach Gardens for a chemical peel treatment, our skilled professional applies the solution and allows it to sit on your skin for a set period of time. The solution is eventually removed, and the body responds to the treatment by gradually replacing dull and damaged skin with new and healthy skin.
