Who needs a chemical peel anyway?

Chemical peels are for patients who have a bit more skin damage than a skin care regimen can improve. They can be used to improve the overall skin color and contour. Peels may be used in lieu of a facelift for patients with mild facial aging, or may be used prior to a facelift to improve the overall surgical results. In some areas of the face like the lower eyelid, chemical peels may be better than surgery!

How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels work by creating injury! By creating a controlled injury to the skin, the skin will act to remodel itself which can improve fine wrinkles and sun damaged areas.

Chemical Peel FAQ’s

What is the recovery like for a chemical peel?

As you might suspect, this will vary depending on what intensity of chemical peel (depth of injury) you receive and in what areas of the face. After the peel, there will be an immediate injury stage with redness, swelling, and discomfort. During this period, if you are prone to "cold sores", Dr. Albright will prescribe a medication to try to prevent a viral outbreak. This will typically be followed by flaking of the skin as the skin starts to heal itself, and takes weeks to months for the improved new outer layer of skin to mature. It is important to protect the skin during this sensitive time period.

Dr. Albright and his staff are extremely skilled and knowledge.
