Chemical Peels for Treating Melasma

Chemical peels are a great option in the treatment of melasma because the intensity of the peel can be controlled to best suit your needs. This can help you to remain comfortable and only treat the skin as deeply as necessary. It?s important to remember, though, that the more deeply your skin peels, the better melasma-removal results typically occur. If you would like to reduce or potentially eliminate the appearance of surface skin issues like:

  • Melasma
  • Wrinkles
  • Age-Spots
  • Acne Scars

?and are otherwise healthy, a chemical peel may be a good option for you.

Your specialist will apply the chemical combination to your skin after a thorough cleansing, and any discomfort can be managed with cooling agents and topical anesthetics. Typically chemical peels take less than an hour to complete, and side effects including redness and pain occur more or less frequently depending on the depth of the peel.

Your improved skin tone and texture can last for years with proper care; contact your specialist to find out is a chemical peel is the best treatment option for you.

Chemical Peels also treat Age Spots and Freckles.
