Chemical peels at Wilmington Dermatology Center help to remove the outer layer of skin that has been damaged by the sun, aging, and environmental conditions. The specific peel required to meet your skin goals will be determined by our Aesthetician and our providers.
From acne scars to uneven texture and tone, Rosalyn George, M.D., and our team of aesthetic professionals have over 75 years of combined experience in customizing your treatment plan based on your skin’s needs and goals.
What is a Chemical Face Peel?
Prior to Treatment
We ask that you protect the target areas from sunlight for several days before treatment, and stop taking other treatment products, like retinoid and glycolic-based solutions, for up to seven days before treatment. Regular sunscreens and moisturizers are no issue. Just before the procedure, we’ll cleanse your skin and cover sensitive areas.
After Treatment & Results
Your downtime will vary depending on your level of peel, but typically you may expect redness and some flaking or peeling for a few days following treatment. Most aesthetic goals require multiple treatments, and we generally recommend a peel every four to six weeks, for anywhere from three to six treatments.
