What are Chemical Peels?
Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic is pleased to offer chemical peel treatments for men and women who want to resolve skin flaws, including scars, wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, rough patches, and hyperpigmentation. At both of our San Antonio, TX offices, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher provides patients with multiple options for high-quality chemical peel facial treatments. Chemical peels involve the use of medical-grade chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) that cause the visible layer to peel off and dissolve dead, damaged skin cells. Each of our noninvasive chemical peel treatments can be personalized to fit your specific needs and concerns.
How Are Chemical Peels Performed?
Our professional team at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic can assess your skin in a consultation in order to create a customized treatment plan for your skin type. We will make sure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the personalized solution to the face and/or neck. Next, we will brush the solution onto the skin and allow it to work for a set length of time. Then, we will wash the peel off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. You may want to bring sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside after the peel to avoid sun exposure. You can expect the treated area to peel and itch, from several days to a couple of weeks. We will provide instructions on how to care for your skin at home. To avoid any scarring, it's essential to remember not to pull the skin off during the flaking process. When your skin recovers and begins to repair itself, you should see a smoother, clearer complexion.
