What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure that treats wrinkles, scars, uneven skin tone, and skin discoloration. A chemical solution is applied to the face to remove the top layers of skin, and the skin that grows back is smoother. Chemical peels can be done at various depths of the skin. In general, lighter peels have faster recovery, but typically require more than one treatment. Dr. Truesdale or Nurse Jess will provide an expert opinion on the best peel for you based on your desired results.

Is a chemical peel good for your skin?
Yes, a chemical peel can be very good for your skin. A chemical peel resurfaces the skin, rejuvenates the skin from fine lines and wrinkles, and helps with pore size and skin discoloration. The new skin after a peel is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is essential.
How long does a chemical peel last?
The length of time the effects of a chemical peel will last depend on the strength and type of chemical peel. Over time, age and new sun damage can lead to new wrinkles and changes in skin color, so you may want an additional treatment.
Is a chemical peel painful?
Most facial chemical peels are not painful. You may experience mild stinging, burning, redness, and swelling. Aggressive, deeper chemical peels need to be done in the operating room and require the patient to be sedated, but most can be done in Dr. Truesdale’s office with minimal pain.
