Glowing Complexion with Chemical Peel for Clearer Skin
There are many types of chemical peels (or facial peels when done on the face!) on the market to solve various problems from fine lines to discoloration, to chemical peel for acne and acne scars. Choosing the right chemical peel is important and it depends on your skin type as well as the underlying medical condition. For example, brown spots or pigment in your skin could be on the surface or deep within the skin. Therefore, a careful clinical examination is vital prior to starting a chemical peel treatment and should be done by a qualified professional. If you are considering a chemical peel for acne, careful consideration should be placed on how that chemical peel will react with your medications used for acne, as well as your skin type. Choosing a chemical peel for clear skin can be an art and glowing complexion is not an overnight event! Furthermore, a clear complexion or a glowing complexion may involve treatments for rosacea, skin cancer, acne or acne scars in addition to the treatments below.
The good news is that chemical peels can be very effective on scars as well. Multiple light chemical peels can be effective especially for multiple small, superficial scars. Because there are a variety of chemical peel agents to choose from, our office can combine peeling agents to help with aging skin even as we treat the scars.
It is important to take special care with sensitive or ethnic skin, to avoid discoloration. Chemical peels can be used on the neck and chest, as well as arms and legs for sun damage reversal treatment, as well as removal of brown spots. Acne patients use can use chemical peel as an add-on treatment once doing a facial peel for acne scarring. Chemical peel for acne can include face, chest and back treatments to remove discoloration, open closed pores, remove and clean follicular openings and help resolve acne.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
