Chemical peels are one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Depending on the type of chemical and the technique used, chemical peels can treat mild to severe acne, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin and scaly patches, some scars, and sun damage.

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

There are three levels of chemical peels, light, medium and deep. Sometimes referred to as a superficial chemical peel, a light chemical peel is an accelerated form of exfoliation. Using a chemical element that penetrates the outermost layer of skin, light chemical peels bring forth a youthful glow. A light peel removes damaged layers on the skin’s surface and stimulates new epidermal skin cells along with the production of collagen.

Medium chemical peels in Jacksonville are very popular. For many Florida residents, extended time in our sunny climate brings the unwanted side effect of freckles or sun spots. The medium peel penetrates the upper layer of the dermis, eliminating sunspots as well as the brown discoloration known as age spots or liver spots. Medium chemical peels also stimulate collagen production, smoothing fine lines and facial wrinkles.

Deep chemical peels penetrate further into the dermis to rearrange collagen, melanocytes and other support structures of the skin. Since these are the most intense of the three facial peel levels you will likely experience swelling as a normal tissue response to injury. The most critical component of achieving great results with rapid recovery time following your deep chemical peel, is strict adherence to post-procedure instructions.
