Chemical peels can be very beneficial for a number of reasons. They can reduce rough patches, diminish age spots, soften wrinkles, and help reduce scars. There are many different levels of chemical peels. We recommend the Refinity® Glycolic Peel, which is a 70% superficial chemical peel. The Refinity® Peel can be safely used on most skin types and has minimal to no downtime.

If you are looking to reduce brown spots, we would recommend a series of six Refinity® chemical peels in combination with the use of either an over-the-counter bleaching cream with hydroquinone or a prescription bleaching cream. Once you are evaluated by board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Yoash Enzer, he will be able to decide which bleaching cream is best suited for you.

Chemical peels will not be your answer to every concern. If you desire a stronger, deeper treatment, we may recommend a Fraxel laser treatment or the CO2 laser. Both of these lasers will target deeper layers of your skin and will require about 3 to 10 days of downtime.

As you can see, we offer many different options for all skin types. Please contact us today to set up a consultation with Dr. Enzer to discuss how you can give your skin the healthy glow that it’s been missing.
