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.
