Chemical Peels Q&A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are anti-aging treatments that exfoliate dead skin cells, allowing newer and younger cells to form. The peels are safe, FDA-approved, and highly effective for reducing unwelcome signs of aging in people of all genders. There’s no pain, invasive procedures, or downtime associated with chemical peels. 

What benefits do chemical peels offer?

Chemical peels with Dr. Bickman provide the following advantages:

  • Reduced age spots
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin
  • Fewer blemishes
  • Reduced scarring
  • Less acne
  • Healthier skin
  • Exceptional results
  • Even-toned skin

Chemical peels are noninvasive to minimally invasive, depending on the type you choose. Mild peels cause few side effects, while stronger peels have more pronounced and longer-lasting side effects. 

Dr. Bickman uses top-quality peels to ensure superior results. She personalizes each treatment to your needs and beauty goals. 

Which chemical peels are best for me?

Dr. Bickman determines which chemical peels are best after discussing your desired results, examining your skin type, and reviewing your medical history. The type of peel that’s best varies from person to person, but the results are almost always remarkable.

What can I expect during chemical peels?

You relax comfortably during chemical peels with Dr. Bickman. She cleans your skin and numbs it to eliminate any discomfort. Then, she applies chemicals to the treatment area to remove outer skin cell layers. Next, she removes the solution or neutralizes it. Dr. Bickman may apply a healing serum to the treated skin. 

What happens after chemical peels?

After you complete a chemical peel, the treated skin is often swollen, tender, or red during the healing process. It’s vital to protect your skin from the sun before and after each peel. 

As the treated tissues produce new cells, you see the effects of the chemical peel. Depending on the treatment, you may be a candidate for periodic repeat peels. Call Dr. Bickman any time with concerns or questions or if you’re interested in additional cosmetic treatments, such as Botox®, fillers, or combination treatments.
