Chemical Face Peels

Improve the look and feel of dull skin with a Chemical Face Peel from Newgate Dental Solutions

Chemical face peels, also known as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, use a chemical on the face which makes the skin peel off allowing new skin to replace it. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.

Chemical peels are performed on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to:

• Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth.
• Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, ageing and hereditary factors.
• Improve the appearance of mild scarring.
• Treat certain types of acne.
• Reduce age spots, freckles and dark patches due to pregnancy or taking contraceptive pills (melasma).

Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are ideal candidates for chemical face peels. Darker skin types may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated.
