There are lots of cosmetic treatments that can be used to help reduce the effect that aging has on the skin and our general appearance. One of the most popular is known as a chemical peel. A chemical peel is a form of exfoliation that uses a chemical solution to remove the topmost layers of skin and reveal newer skin beneath it. The process causes little to no discomfort in most instances. The first couple days after a chemical peel, you will need to follow special care instructions while your skin heals. Dr. Green at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center will be able to give you specific information on how to look after yourself during this time.

There are many different types of chemical peels, enabling patients to choose the variety that best suits their skin type and their cosmetic goals. This is important since some peels are deeper and offer more significant results than others.

Benefits of chemical peels


There are many different benefits associated with chemical peels. The most obvious is brighter, smoother and younger-looking skin which is one of the main reasons why people choose to undergo a chemical peel in the first place. The way this works is very simple. The chemical peel damages the skin in a controlled manner, producing a superficial wound that the body then needs to heal. This stimulates new collagen and healthy skin cell growth, and this will help to produce fresh, new and unblemished skin that is stronger, more supple and more youthful in appearance.


Some of the other benefits you can expect when you choose a chemical peel include:

  • The color, clarity, tone and texture of your skin will be improved.

  • Discoloration caused by sun damage will be reduced.

  • Skin will be healthier and more hydrated.

  • The appearance of pores will be minimized, creating a smoother base for any cosmetics that you want to use after healing.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles will be smoothed away so that their appearance is diminished.

  • Chemical peels can help to get breakouts of acne under control.

  • Any other visible imperfections such as acne scarring will be reduced.

Another key benefit of a chemical peel is that by removing the uppermost layer of the skin, any skincare products that are used can be absorbed more easily and penetrate deeper into the skin where they can potentially be more effective.

Many people choose to have a number of chemical peels spaced over a number of weeks and months in order to achieve the greatest result, without necessarily having a deeper peel which requires a more significant recovery. However, your dermatologist in Deerfield Beach will be able to advise you which chemical peel will be right to address the issues that you are concerned with and will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.
