Find out if this cosmetic procedure could take years off your face.chemical peel

We are all looking for the Fountain of Youth. Of course, as we all know, there is no magical formula or destination you can go to be ageless forever. However, that doesn’t mean that our Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, dermatologist, Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, can’t still reduce and even eliminate some of those wrinkles and lines and get you looking years younger. One way to do this is through a chemical peel.

What is a chemical peel?

This cosmetic treatment involves applying a special chemical solution over the skin, which will remove the outermost surface of the skin. This outer layer of skin contains the most damage because of its exposure to UVA/UVB rays, harsh products, environmental elements and other factors. Once the skin blisters and falls off after your chemical peel, it will reveal the healthier, younger and more radiant skin that was underneath.

What skin problems can a chemical peel address?

There are many people who can benefit from getting a chemical peel. Don’t believe us? Then just ask our Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach cosmetic dermatologist to find out what it could do for you.

Certain kinds of acne, as well as superficial scars, can be reduced or even eliminated through chemical peels. Lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage can also be improved. Other imperfections such as dark spots, age spots and freckles can also be treated with a chemical peel. Plus, a chemical peel leaves your skin looking healthier, smoother and younger overall.

Just remember that not all issues can be treated with a chemical peel. Those with deep-set wrinkles or sagging skin will not be good candidates for chemical peels. However, a chemical peel along with laser treatment or cosmetic surgery (e.g. facelift) could provide you with the comprehensive results you want.

What should I expect from a chemical peel?

Besides having reasonable goals and expectations regarding any cosmetic treatment you undergo, it’s also important to understand that there may be extensive downtime. A lot will depend on the intensity of the chemical peel you choose to get. A mild peel may only take a couple days of recovery time while those who get deeper peels may deal with blistering, redness and other after effects for up to two weeks.
