Chemical peels are a wonderful option for the treatment of a number of skin concerns. Widely available, chemical peels provide the best results when they are conducted in the office of an experienced physician. At Franklin Skin and Laser near Cool Springs, our level of expertise is complemented with a large selection of outstanding products capable of addressing specific skin concerns.
Some of the conditions that can be safely treated with a customized chemical peel include:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
Truly customized treatment, a chemical peel may be performed using substances such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, or salicylic acid, all derivatives of sugar cane. A peel may also be based on other substances or technology. The foundation of a peel is carefully selected, with the intent of treatment the elimination of dead, damaged cells that lie on the surface of the skin. As old cells slough off after a peel, the growth of new, healthy cells is accelerated and the appearance of the skin is significantly improved. With decades of experience and hundreds of patients treated with chemical peels, Dr. Bengelsdorf has the in-depth knowledge of the approach most suitable for each of our patients’ needs.
Light, medium, or strong peels promote smoother, fresher skin that shows fewer lines and spots. Lighter peels may be performed as often as every two weeks, with stronger peels recommended on a yearly basis. This type of regimen encourages the ongoing production of collagen for healthier, younger looking skin. The amount of healing needed after a chemical peel is determined by the strength of treatment. Our patients are provided with all of the information they will need before chemical peel treatment to ensure a comfortable, efficient process.
Our team has administered chemical peels to hundreds of patients with wonderful success. Patients of Franklin Skin and Laser can feel confident in the knowledge that Dr. Bengelsdorf and our skin care specialists will make recommendations with precise accuracy, based on skin type and specific needs.
