Chemical peels are topically applied acids that create a uniform and controlled shedding of skin layers. Depending on the type and strength of acid, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and sun damage can be obliterated. There are various types of Chemical Peels available in Mountain View by the office of Dr. Jean Gordon, read on to learn more!
Types of Chemical Peels available in Mountain View:
- Superficial – Glycolic or salicylic acid peels improve texture and even out skin tone. No downtime!
- Medium – Trichloro acetic acid (TCA) peels (15 -20%) improve fine lines and more serious pigmentation problems. Recovery time is from 3 to 5 days.
- Deep – TCA (20-30%) produces the most dramatic results for deep lines. These target the mid to deep dermal layer and result in a week of peeling.
Skin is refreshed for over 6 to 12 months. A special variant, the Blue Peel, can be used for darker skin types to ensure a complication-free result.
