Chemical Peels | Before and After Images

Skin imperfections, in large part, are the result of sun damage, acne, aging or build up of dead skin cells that clog the pores making the skin appear dull, wrinkled, spotty, scarred and/or patchy. Chemical peels can dramatically improve the appearance of the skin on the face, hands, neck and décolletage, and leave skin looking smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter. Chemical peels can be used to treat the following: reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and wrinkling, improve the appearance of mild scars, treat a variety of types of acne, reduce age spots, freckles, and ark patches due to pregnancy or birth control pills and improve the look and feel of the skin. Review our before and after skin peel photos to determine what imperfections a chemical peel may aid you with. Our before and after chemical peel images show results a week prior to receiving a chemical peel. The chemical peel before and after photos show results such as skin tightening, acne removal and scars removal.

How does a chemical peel work?

Chemical peels cause the top layer of skin to “blister” which eventually peels off. The new skin after the peeling process is smoother and less wrinkled than the old top layer. The procedure casues very minimal pain (if any at all) and improves the skin texture and appearance almost instantaneously. Chemical peels will not correct sagging skin, bulges and/or severe wrinkle cases. It is highly recommended that you wear sunscreen every day after having a chemical prior to a chemical peel treatment. Your skin will temporarily be more sensitive to the sun and may burn more easily. Your sunscreen should have the label “broad-spectrum” on it, which initially means the product protects against UVA and UVD rays. After a chemical peel is completed, it is highly recommend that time spent in the sun is limited during sunlight hours, especially when the sun is at its peak/strongest.

Who is a good candidate for chemical peels?

The best candidates for a chemical peel are those who are fair-skinned and light-haired. If you have darker toned skin, you are more likely to have uneven toned skin after a chemical peel. However, your results will still be optimal, depending on the skin complication being treated. Always remember, chemical peels cannot be used for severe wrinkles, skin sags and/or bulges. If you are interested in receiving a chemical peel treatment, view our before and after chemical peel photos and see the progressive optimal results achieved by the procedure. Our before and after chemical peel photos display a wide variety of treatments that have had optimal results. The below before and after chemical peel images show results that differ from patient to patient depending on the severity of their skin conditions. Some of these results required more than one treatment to achieve optimal results.
