A chemical peel may be a good option if you have lines, wrinkles, dark spots, or blemishes in your skin. Your San Antonio, TX, dermatologist, Dr. Linda Banta of Stone Oak Dermatology, can help you renew your appearance and improve your skin tone with a peel.

How a chemical peel can improve your skin

Chemical peels remove the outer layers of your skin, erasing fine lines, wrinkles, shallow scars, acne lesions, and dark spots. They also brighten skin, improve texture, and reduce large pores.

You won't notice a change in your skin immediately after treatment, as it takes a little while for the chemicals to work. About two to three days after your treatment, your skin will begin to peel and will continue to peel for two to five days, depending on the peel. After peeling is complete, your skin will be smoother and free of spots and blemishes.

Chemical peel options

During your visit to the San Antonio dermatology office, one of these peels may be recommended for you:

  • Illuminize Peel: This gentle peel option improves tone and texture, yet only causes minimal discomfort. The Illuminize peel combines alpha-hydroxy acids with phytic acid to renew your skin. Alpha-hydroxy acids naturally exfoliate and brighten skin and also improve the production of collagen, a protein that keeps your skin firm. If you're concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, you may benefit from a series of Illuminize peels.
  • Vitalize Peel: The Vitalize peel combines alpha-hydroxy acids with several other acids to improve aging skin and minimize sun spots, acne, freckles, wrinkles, lines, acne scars, and dark spots. It's an excellent choice if you have mild to moderate skin issues. Depending on the condition of your skin, a single peel or a series of peels may be recommended.
  • Rejuvenize Peel: The Rejuvenize peel is a good option if you have moderate to severe skin imperfections. It not only improves skin tone and texture but also decreases lines and wrinkles, treats dark spots, and tones your skin. Although you'll see noticeable results after just one treatment, several treatments may be needed for the best results.
