Chemical Peels are a popular treatment performed to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. There are a number of surface skin issues that can be improved through Chemical Peels from  premature wrinkling to sun damage. Skin resurfacing through Chemical Peels works by the application of a solution which penetrates the skin and removed the epidermis and into the first layer of the dermis. chemical Peels come in a few different levels or strengths–the stronger the peel the deeper it penetrate into the dermis.

After the peel, Dr. Walker may apply a dressing, and some swelling and peeling is to be expected. Generally some ointments are use to keep the skin supple for seven to ten days after the procedure with initial healing occurring over four weeks. In just a few weeks after the procedure, your new skin will emerge pink, finer, and more youthful.
