At Boston Plastic Surgery, we provide adult men and women with solutions for the skin and body. Imperfections on the facial skin can make patients feel self-conscious about how they look. Additionally, these imperfections can be contributing to an aged appearance, especially when fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. Dr. Samuel Lin and his team in Boston, MA are excited to offer chemical peels as a solution to improving the skin’s overall texture and tone.
Why do patients use chemical peels?
Chemical peels have been used for decades and continue to be a reliable and effective way of enhancing skin texture and tone. Patients continue to use chemical peels because of their safety. Chemical peels are also an affordable option, especially when compared to invasive plastic surgeries such as facelifts and browlifts. With a chemical peel, patients also have the opportunity to address several issues with one treatment. The chemical peel process can help with:
- Tightening the skin
- Closing in large pores
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing pigmentation problems
- Improving acne and reducing acne scarring
- Evening out skin tone and texture
Who is a candidate for chemical peels?
Most patients are considered appropriate candidates for chemical peels. It is best that patients book a consultation appointment with the team at Boston Plastic Surgery to ensure they choose one that fits their needs. Dr. Samuel Lin and his providers will assess a patient during the first visit and listen to the patient about his or her specific desires. Chemical peels range in strength and aggressiveness, and there are several different active ingredients to choose from. Patients who want gradual enhancement of the skin may consider gentler peels on a more regular basis, while dramatic results are achieved with the use of more aggressive chemical peels that may require time off of social activities for proper healing.
