Are you concerned about your skin's appearance? Problems like wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars can affect your confidence and self-esteem. A chemical peel uses a solution to exfoliate the outer layers and reveal a more radiant complexion. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jaimie DeRosa is proud to offer comprehensive cosmetic solutions for patients in Boston, MA.

Here is a closer look at some of the most common skin concerns that can be improved with a chemical peel at The DeRosa Center. Call our med spa to schedule your consultation.

How do chemical peels work?

A chemical peel contains a blend of powerful agents like glycolic, salicylic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acid to remove dead or damaged skin cells. Once the top layers are shed away, clearer and smoother skin is revealed.

The DeRosa Center performs chemical peels on the face and neck areas. During a med spa consultation, we perform an exam and recommend a light, medium-depth, or deep peel based on your needs and goals. First-timers may start with a light peel, while those with more advanced skin concerns require deeper exfoliation. Dr. DeRosa creates personalized chemical peels, so you receive the best possible results.

What skin issues are resolved with chemical peels?

It is normal to have one or more skin issues as you age. With chemical peel treatments at our med spa, you can target multiple concerns at the same time for a more youthful and refreshed look. The DeRosa Center can address the following in Boston, MA:

  • Signs of aging: Fine lines and wrinkles often appear around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. A chemical peel can smooth out your skin and diminish fine lines.

  • Sun damage: Prolonged sun exposure leads to premature aging, wrinkles, and brown spots. Chemical peels reverse the cosmetic issues associated with sun damage and make your skin appear healthier.

  • Hyperpigmentation: Hormone changes and sun exposure cause unwanted brown spots to form. A chemical peel evens out your skin tone by lightening problem areas.

  • Acne scars: Frequent breakouts cause scars that last long after the acne has cleared away. Chemical peels improve the surface of your skin by stimulating collagen production and increasing cell turnover.

How long does it take to see the results of a chemical peel?

It depends on the depth of your peel and the condition of your skin. Dr. DeRosa can review your case and give you an idea of what to expect during your med spa consultation. Generally, patients start to see results after the peeling process is complete. You should expect some peeling and itching for up to two weeks or longer for more in-depth peels.

How do you prolong your results?

To maintain your results, we recommend wearing sunscreen daily and avoiding sun exposure as much as possible. You should also avoid picking or touching your face during recovery. You may need to undergo a maintenance peel every few months to keep your skin looking its best. Our team can provide post-peel care instructions to help you heal quickly and safely.
