Banish Brown Spots and Other Sun Damage with a Chemical Peel

Both time and the elements take a toll on your skin, and there’s not much you can do about either one. Happily, a carefully chosen and expertly administered chemical peel can erase the effects of the sun, and even make small lines disappear. 

Dr. Matthew Lynch and his team are the experts you need when you’re considering a chemical peel. We have the knowledge and training to make sure you get the type of chemical peel most suited to your skin and its problems, and we’ve administered hundreds of them. 

Rejuvenation with a chemical peel

A chemical peel is a way to remove unwanted elements in your skin. The peel removes the outer layers of your skin, revealing healthy, fresh, new skin beneath. The chemical solution we use penetrates the top layers and stimulates your body’s natural rejuvenation process. 

Which acid we use depends on your skin tone, type, and needs. Different solutions penetrate to different depths and offer different results. Some of the common ingredients in chemical peel solutions include:

In most cases, we recommend the use of a chemical peel in conjunction with other treatments in order to maximize your results. 

Types of chemical peels 

Your needs are our top concern as we suggest a chemical peel type and solution for you. There are three main types of chemical peels, used to address various skin issues. 

1. Superficial chemical peels

A superficial, or light, peel can be part of your regular skin routine. It’s good to gently exfoliate and address skin issues such as: 

A superficial chemical peel removes the outermost layer of your skin. Gentle solutions, like alpha and beta hydroxy acid are usually used in a light peel. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, this may be a good choice, because the acids unclog pores and reduce inflammation. The result is more even skin with less acne. 

2. Medium chemical peels

A medium peel goes a bit deeper. We may suggest a solution containing trichloroacetic acid for a medium chemical peel. If you have sun damage, acne scarring, wrinkles, or pigment irregularities, this may be a good choice for you. 

A medium peel requires a few days of recovery time, and you should discuss how often it’s advisable with Dr. Lynch. Most people should only have one for maintenance every year or two. 

3. Deep chemical peels

If you’re looking for a dramatic change, a deep chemical peel may be right for you. This type of peel removes dark spots, addresses hyperpigmentation, and can even eradicate deeper acne scars. 

A deep peel does require some recovery time, but the results are surprising. It’s usually a once-in-a-lifetime experience with results that don’t require maintenance! 

Choose a chemical peel

When it comes down to deciding on a type of peel that gives you the results you want, trust the professionals. Dr. Lynch and his staff evaluate your skin and take your goals into consideration before making a recommendation. Once you decide, they make sure you understand what to expect and how to care for your skin after your peel.
