At Padgett Medical Center we offer chemical peels to our patients. a chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, chest, or hands. Our chemical peels penetrate the layers of the skin to remove sun damage, age spots, moderate skin discoloration, shallow scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Chemical peels do sting but do not cause a great deal of pain. To ensure proper healing, it is advised to avoid sun exposure until healing is complete. Mild lotion maybe applied and make up can be worn after the first 4-5 days.
