To help patients extend the beautiful results of these and other facial rejuvenation procedures, he offers a number of cosmeceuticals – highly specialized medical-grade products targeting a variety of skincare needs. In the paragraphs below, Dr. Sanders explains the chemical skin regeneration procedure and the remarkable results Los Angeles chemical peel patients can achieve through this treatment.
Chemical Peel: Is It For Me?
Chemical peel is a popular skin rejuvenation procedure that improves the appearance of skin by promoting generation of new, healthy skin cells. In fact, more than 1 million chemical peels are performed in the United States each year. As a leading LA chemical peel expert, Dr. Sanders has helped numerous patients from throughout the greater Los Angeles area, including San Fernando Valley and Encino, achieve a refreshed facial appearance. He recommends and performs chemical peels to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores, lighten sun damage and age spots, and lessen the appearance of certain scars. In addition to beautifying facial skin, chemical peels can also be performed to improve the appearance of the neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. Depending on the unique needs of each chemical peel LA patient, Dr. Sanders customizes the treatment to provide light, medium or deep exfoliation.
Chemical Peel Procedure
Dr. Sanders and his staff begin each chemical peel procedure by administering appropriate anesthesia, after which they appliy customized chemical solution to the area in need of treatment. The chemical agents penetrate the skin, “peeling off” the outer layers containing dead skin cells. This process stimulates the production of new cells, thus revealing fresh, youthful skin. The chemical peel procedure is typically completed in less than one hour, during which time patients might experience warm sensations and mild stinging. Most chemical peel Los Angeles patients fully recover within several weeks.
To protect the newly generated skin and extend the rejuvenating effect, Dr. Sanders recommends that patients use special skincare products. Referred to as cosmeceuticals, these medical-grade creams and ointments deliver vitamins and essential nutrients to the skin. As a result, these patients experience youthful skin that radiates health and vitality.

Skin Rejuvenation Frequently Asked Questions
Skin Rejuvenation Frequently Asked Questions
- How Do I Determine Which Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Is Best for Me?
Knowing which skin rejuvenation treatment is best depends on a couple of important factors. First, San Fernando Valley patients must first decide on which areas they’d like to target. For example, some treatments work better for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, while others help to boost the tone and tautness of the skin. Targeting a specific problem makes it far easier to decide which treatment to use. Second, patients need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sanders at his San Fernando Valley office. Not every skin rejuvenation treatment is appropriate for every patient, and by further examining patients, Dr. Sanders can rule out or suggest different options. Together, Dr. Sanders and the patient can collaborate and concoct a plan of care that’s specific to each individual.
- What’s the Best Skin Rejuvenation Treatment for Wrinkles?
Numerous skin rejuvenation treatments can treat wrinkles, so much of that answer depends specifically on the San Fernando Valley patient. One important thing to consider is whether or not the wrinkles are static or dynamic. Static wrinkles are etched in the skin’s surface as a result of sun damage or age, while dynamic wrinkles are creases in the skin that occur because of contracted facial muscles. What works to treat static wrinkles in San Fernando Valley patients will not work to treat dynamic wrinkles and vice versa. Some of the better treatments for static wrinkles include chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing, which help to create a new layer of fresh skin. Facial injectables, such as Botox, are better options for dynamic wrinkles, as these paralyze the muscles underneath the skin.
Because skin rejuvenation treatment encompasses a wide variety of techniques, these can be used to treat a number of facial blemishes. Some of the most common conditions Dr. Sanders treats in his San Fernando Valley patients include:
- Dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by facial muscle contraction.
- Static wrinkles, which are caused by aging, sun, and other factors.
- Dull skin tone, which makes the face look pale and lifeless.
- Sagging cheekbones, which often result as fat starts to break down with age.
- Acne scars and spots, which can often stand out and affect confidence.
Most skin rejuvenation treatments work by stimulating the production of collagen so that the skin creates a fresh new layer, which revitalizes a San Fernando Valley patient’s appearance.
What Causes Dull Skin?
There are many factors that can cause dull skin in San Fernando Valley patients. Some of these include:
- Smoking, as this limits how well skin can heal itself.
- Drinking too much, as this also damages skin cells.
- Not staying hydrated, as the skin needs lots of water to stay plump and full.
- Not eating well, as the skin requires numerous vitamins and nutrients to stay healthy.
- Not exfoliating, as this allows a layer of dead skin cells to sit on the skin’s surface.
There are certain preventative measures San Fernando Valley patients can take for dull skin, such as not smoking, eating healthy, and staying hydrated. However, if these efforts fail, skin rejuvenation from Dr. Sanders can be a useful tool to restore a youthful appearance.
