Chemical peels are ideal as standalone treatments that reduce the effects of sun damage and aging. With the right chemical peel combination, you can achieve smoother and better-looking skin. For many patients, one of the most common results is increased collagen production that improves volume and restores more youthful looks.
Another benefit of chemical peels is that they can act as a supplementary or pre-surgical treatment option. Skin type often dictates the type of procedures that are suitable for a patient. Patients with darker skin are more likely to experience certain side effects such as blotchiness or increased pigmentation. With a specially formulated chemical peel treatment applied before the primary surgery, results are often improved.
Identifying Treatment Areas
When damaged layers of skin are removed and healthier skin grows, it is easier for your plastic surgeon to identify the areas that need the most attention. You can elect to have more invasive treatments as a first consideration, but chemical peels often reduce or eliminate unnecessary downtime when combined with minimally invasive procedures.
Certain skin types do not respond so well to laser treatments unless a pre-surgical chemical peel is used. Supplementary treatment is opening the doors to a broader range of laser treatments to patients. As technologies improve, patients with darker skin are able to benefit from laser treatments that were not previously recommended by plastic surgeons.
