The Benefits of a Chemical Peel

The Benefits of a Chemical Peel

A chemical peel can greatly improve the look and condition of your skin and leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. It involves treatment with a chemical agent that will prompt new skin growth. It is a common and largely effective treatment for sun damage and fine wrinkles, but can also be used for certain types of acne problems.

Over-the-counter chemical peels are not nearly as effective as chemical peels performed by a physician. If you are a Des Moines resident considering a chemical peel treatment, the team at Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery can answer your questions and schedule your appointment.

Conditions Treatable with a Chemical Peel

There are many possible benefits of a chemical peel. Most candidates use chemical peels to treat conditions such as:

  • Fine wrinkles under the eyes or around the mouth
  • Mild scarring
  • Certain types of acne
  • Sun damage
  • Dark spots or freckles

In addition to reducing the appearance of mild scarring, fine lines, and acne, a chemical peel will also leave you with soft, smooth skin and a healthy glow.
