5 Conditions That Can Be Helped with Chemical Peels

5 Conditions That Can Be Helped with Chemical Peels

If you are concerned about the effects of premature aging, you’re not alone. Many women feel discouraged by seeing the early signs of aging once they reach their 30s and 40s. You may look tired and your skin may not seem to bounce back as quickly as it once did.

At the Center for Women’s Health in Richmond, Sugar Land, Texas, we take a holistic approach to women’s health, which includes looking and feeling your best. That’s why, in addition to comprehensive gynecological care, we offer aesthetic treatments such as chemical peels to improve the appearance of your skin. 

Wondering if a chemical peel could be right for you? Here our providers explain five conditions that could benefit from a chemical peel. 

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to rejuvenate your skin’s look and texture. During your treatment, these chemicals gently remove older, dead layers of your skin, revealing fresher and younger-looking skin underneath. This means your skin is smoother and has a better texture than before.

Chemical peels range from surface treatments that only address the top layer of your skin to more in-depth treatments that penetrate the layers underneath. When you make an appointment, we can address which treatments are most likely to be effective for you based on your unique skin and the condition you are treating.

5 conditions that chemical peels help

When you’re considering a chemical peel, you may wonder about what skin conditions a chemical peel can improve. Here are five of the most common conditions that a chemical peel can help with.

1. Wrinkles

Aging often comes with the appearance of fine lines and eventually deep-set wrinkles. Chemical peels can soften those fine lines and minimize wrinkles, revealing smoother skin underneath. 

2. Acne and acne scars

Although acne is common, it’s troublesome. Peeling away the outer layers of your skin can reveal clearer skin with fewer scars. 

3. Sun damage

Many women have sun damage caused by tanning when they were younger. Chemical peels can reverse many of the effects of sun damage including sun spots and discoloration.

4. Age spots

Age spots are a normal part of the aging process, but may not be a part that you like. Chemical peels can reveal fresher-looking skin by lightening age spots. 

5. Freckles

Freckles are completely normal and don’t cause any health concerns. Some people love their freckles, while others may dislike them. If you don’t like your freckles, chemical peels can help reduce their appearance. 

If you want to get a chemical peel, make a consultation to see which ones we recommend for your skin. To learn more, request an appointment online or contact your nearest Center for Women’s Health location.
