The Benefits of Chemical Peels
Are you interested in a chemical peel treatment for your face, hands, or neck? The chemical peel can improve the skin’s look and texture in any of these areas. Our chemical peels can be used to ease away or reduce the appearance of several skin irregularities, including wrinkles and age lines, acne, uneven pigmentation, rough areas, sun damage, scars and acne scars, liver and age spots, and freckles. These issues typically come about as a result of the aging process and consistent sun exposure.
I love Laser MD. I have went for a couple services, Juvederm & chemical peels. They went great, and I have had some consultations about other services. Staff seems knowledgeable, I feel comfortable and the offices are very clean. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

How Do Chemical Peels Work?
The chemical peel process involves brushing a specially formulated solution of chemicals onto the skin. This solution creates a controlled removal of the injured skin cells of the superficial skin layers, causing them to slough away over a period of time. In their place, new, fresh skin cells grow, free of any irregularities. the rejuvenated layers of skin have a smoother, youthful, and more radiant appearance.
The Different Types of Chemical Peels
There are a wide variety of chemical peels with different solutions and different intensities designed to address different types of skin concerns. In general, there are three different depts that chemical peels come in:
Light chemical peels – Also known as superficial peels. This chemical peel focuses on addressing the surface layer of skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and treat acne, poor skin tone, and dryness. Recommended
