Chemical peels are skin treatments that have been used for over 50 years with success for many issues in the skin. The name chemical peel is misleading because while some peels cause skin peeling and scaling for days after the procedure, Cenla Dermatology offers chemical peels with no downtime, no missed days of work, and very minimal superficial skin peeling.

Chemical peels are skin treatments that have been used for over 50 years with success for many issues in the skin. The name chemical peel is misleading because while some peels cause skin peeling and scaling for days after the procedure, Cenla Dermatology offers chemical peels with no downtime, no missed days of work, and very minimal superficial skin peeling.

Chemical peels allow for rapid skin cell turnover, production of new skin cells, and/or penetration into the skin to affect specific skin concerns. Cenla Dermatology offers a variety of chemical peels to treat many different skin conditions and concerns. At Cenla Dermatology, one of our well-trained dermatology providers hand chose the right chemical peel specifically for your skin type, in order to best treat your individual skin concerns.

What skin concerns do chemical peels help correct?

Peels help to improve the overall appearance of the skin by improving skin texture and tone. They work gradually and are often performed in a series of 3-6 treatments, depending on the type of peel selected. Certain peels can even be used on pregnant patients and nursing mothers.

At Cenla Dermatology, we offer a number of peels, including superficial and medium depth peels. Superficial peels often cause minimal dryness to a few days of peeling. Examples include salicylic acid peels, mandelic acid peels, and lactic acid peels. Ask about our special package pricing available for Cenla Dermatology patients.

Medium depth peels cause injury to both the epidermis and the top portion of the dermis, producing more of a skin peeling effect. These can cause shedding and dryness for up to one week. Medium depth peels have a greater effect on fine lines, blotchy skin, and sun damage. At Cenla Dermatology, we offer medium depth chemical peels for the face, neck, arms, and legs.
