What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that helps to decrease skin flaws, such as scars, wrinkles, fine lines, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels are ideal to produce a more luminous, radiant skin appearance on the face, neck, and décolletage. At Contemporary Dermatology, your treatment will utilize custom-blended exfoliating solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) to cause the top layer to peel off. When your skin heals and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should notice a smoother, clearer complexion. To learn more about chemical peel options at our Marstons Mills, MA office, contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert Nossa.
Our Chemical Peel Technique
At Contemporary Dermatology, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will ensure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the customized solution to the face and/or neck, which will set for an appropriate length of time. Finally, we will clean the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. You are encouraged to bring a light sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside following the treatment to avoid UV exposure. Depending on the strength of the peel you choose, you should expect the treated area to peel and itch, from several days to two or more weeks. Our team will discuss ways to treat your skin during your consultation. It's not helpful to pick at the flaking skin, as this could produce scarring.
