Chemical Peels

in Cleveland, Ohio at Neo Aesthetic Institute

Skin becomes wrinkled, inelastic, leathery, and dyspigmented with age. Common signs of aging are generally most evident in areas such as the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. Other factors such as smoking and excessive sun exposure can speed up the aging process, making us look much older than we may actually feel.

Anti-Aging Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a type of treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. The chemical solution is applied to the skin, creating a blistering effect and then eventually peeling off. The new skin is generally smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

This type of treatment is generally used on the face, hands, and neck as a way to reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, treat wrinkles from sun damage and aging, and improve the appearance of mild scars. Chemical peels are also used to treat certain types of acne. Along with that, this treatment is used to reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches, also known as melasma, due to pregnancy or birth control. Chemical peels generally improve the look and feel of skin.
