Chemical Peel in Knoxville
Our faces accumulate signs of wear and tear as we age. Fortunately, not every mark and blemish is skin deep. A chemical peel, available at The Breazeale Clinic in Knoxville, can remove that outer layer and expose the smoother, younger-looking skin that sits just beneath the surface.
While a chemical peel is most traditionally applied to your face, it can also be appropriate for hands, back, and legs.
What Does a Chemical Peel Involve?
There are several different types of chemical peel, but they all basically operate the same way: a chemical solution is applied to your skin to literally peel away the outermost layer. This is an ideal non-surgical treatment to prevent signs of aging in younger patients and reduces the appearance of a variety of skin problems, including:
- fine lines
- age spots
- sun spots
- some scarring
- pigment irregularities
- pore size
Your skin will be sensitive, particularly to sunlight after this procedure. Use of sunscreen is recommended.
If you're not so concerned with reducing wrinkles and lines, but are still looking for a skin care treatment to rejuvenate your face, you may want to consider microdermabrasion.
A Botox® injection can target forehead creases and lines, creating a smooth look as well.
