Medium Depth Chemical Peels
Chemical Solutions in St. Louis
Chemical peels are made up of solutions that take off the worn outer layers of skin, exposing the smoother, fresher skin beneath. Peels come in different strengths and may be left on the skin for varying amounts of time, depending on a patient’s aesthetic goals. People typically seek out peels to improve the look of facial skin, though they are also often applied to the hands, neck, and décolleté.
Chemical peels (even medium depth chemical peels) are considered to be minimally invasive treatments for the wrinkles, spots, scars, and pigmentation differences caused by UV rays from the sun, acne, and the effects of aging.
Medium depth chemical peels at St. Louis’ West County Plastic Surgeons Spa include dermaplaning for maximum penetration of solutions.
