Chemical peels are an adjunctive method for treating acne and rosacea, irregularly pigmented, sun-damaged and mature skin. Our experience with the different peeling agents allow us to determine the right one for your skin. Some chemical peels are formulated to treat the uppermost layer of your skin, such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid. These light peels will diminish roughness, improve texture and very fine wrinkles, and help minimize melasma or other hyperpigmentation problems. They are also helpful for removing superficial actinic keratoses which are considered potentially pre-cancerous. Other peels penetrate deeper, such as Jessner’s peels or peels using trichloracetic acid, TCA.
Patients achieve the most successful results when multiple peels are done in succession and are combined with a comprehensive at-home skin care system customized by the doctors at Dermatology & Aesthetic Center of El Paso specifically for your skin.
