Facial Chemical Peels Los Angeles
Facial chemical peels offer a fast, extremely effective way to transform your skin without the need for surgery or other invasive procedures. Peels can reduce the appearance of large pores, erase discolorations, combat acne, brighten your complexion and leave your skin glowing and healthy. Dr. Peyman Ghasri, our expert in facial chemical peels in Los Angeles, can help you decide if a chemical peel may be right for you.
Two of the most common types of chemical peels include glycolic acid and TCA. These chemicals offer significant improvement for skin that is prone to acne, pigment irregularities, fine lines or sun damage. Both can be considered light chemical peels. TCA in higher concentrations can also function as a medium-depth peel. Medium peels penetrate through the epidermis, or the outer layer of the skin, and into the top layer of the dermis. These deeper peels are excellent for managing mild to moderate wrinkles, actinic keratosis, severe acne and some cases of melasma. Dr. Ghasri, our expert in facial chemical peels in Los Angeles, can help you determine the most appropriate type of peel for your needs.
After your chemical peel, you will need to take steps to protect your skin. The treated area may blister or crust over. Picking at it or peeling the flaking skin could lead to discolorations and scarring. Moisturizing or antibiotic ointments may facilitate the healing process. Dr. Ghasri, our expert in facial chemical peels in Los Angeles, can make specific recommendations or prescribe the necessary medications to ensure your complete satisfaction with your results.
The best candidates for chemical peels are those with fairer skin tones. Patients with darker skin tones may also be candidates for peels under some circumstances. Let Dr. Ghasri, our expert in facial chemical peels in Los Angeles, know if you have a history of cold sores or scarring. You may also need to quit taking or using certain medications, or you may need to use certain topical medications before the peel to ensure even penetration.
