Chemical peels work by removing the outer layers of your skin 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.
- Superficial, medium and deep peels are available. Superficial peels are less painful, do not require downtime and result in subtle changes. They are used to improve acne scars, sun damage and fine wrinkles.
- Medium peels treat discolored skin, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and precancerous lesions. Redness of the skin can last for 1-2 days with this level of peel.
- Deeper, more aggressive peels address long term sun damage, scarring and many of the areas addressed by the other available peels. Deeper peels result in significantly more redness for longer durations.
At Wilmington Dermatology Center we offer a host of peel solutions including treatments from SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, and Apeele. Our experienced staff has year of experience performing peels and should be consulted with prior to your treatment to determine which solution would be best suited to meet your goals and downtime requirements. A typical treatment in our office last about an hour and prices start at around $160.
