Most chemical peels are significantly less aggressive with nowhere near the dramatic results that are obtained with the CO2 laser. They do have the advantage of requiring little or no down time and minimal discomfort. Many are advertised as “lunch-time” peels.
The chemicals work by removing the damaged top layers of skin, allowing newer and healthier tissue to surface. Dr. Turkeltaub offers a variety of medical-grade chemical peel treatments that can be customized according to the patient’s unique skin type and aesthetic needs. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results.
