When (and Why) to Consider a Chemical Peel

When (and Why) to Consider a Chemical Peel

Environmental influences such as sun exposure and the natural aging process inevitably lead to the formation of skin wrinkles. In addition, aging skin can show unwanted pigmentation or age spots as well as bumps on the surface. 

At Jordan Valley Dermatology Center in South Jordan, Utah, dermatologist Douglass Forsha, MD, offers several kinds of chemical peels for skin rejuvenation to quickly and efficiently revitalize your skin. 

chemical peel offers an alternative to surgical methods in an outpatient treatment that enables a new, fresh layer of skin to form. Wherever you receive the chemical peel treatment — face, neck, or hands — your skin is softer and firmer afterward.

Aging skin

Aging is a natural process, but behavioral and environmental factors, such as aggressive scrubbing and exposure to the sun, can accelerate it. Sun exposure contributes to photoaging, a process that wrinkles and discolors your skin. Photoaging is a direct result of all of the sun exposure you have had in your life. Excessive exposure is responsible for 90% of visible skin changes. Regularly being in the sun without sunscreen can cause your skin to become leathery and dry.

Chemical peels can prevent or even reverse mild symptoms of photoaging. The right chemical solution can target skin imperfections, reduce dark spots, and decrease acne scars and blemishes. Depending on the problem area we treat, our beauty specialists help you select the best chemical peel treatment for your skin.

Chemical peels for wrinkles and scars

Chemical peels are particularly suitable for treating smaller expression lines or crow's feet. They reduce the visibility of these early signs of aging and minimize wrinkles. 

If your complexion shows irregularities or you have acne scars, chemical peels even out your skin’s surface and smooth the affected areas. Chemical peels can also help with smaller scars on the face or hands but aren’t suitable for deep wrinkles and scars.

Chemical peel benefits

Chemical peels are highly effective and help you avoid going under the knife. Other benefits include:
