Chemical peels available at Coastal Aesthetics

At Coastal Aesthetics of Wilmington, North Carolina, patients seeking medical chemical peels for wrinkles, fine lines, and overall skin enhancement are encouraged to talk to our providers about the options available to them. Knowing how chemical peels work for skin resurfacing will help you better understand the many benefits they provide.

What is a chemical peel, and how does it work to clear the skin?

A professional chemical peel is a procedure in which a trained esthetician applies a chemical solution to the skin, typically the face, neck, or hands. This solution causes the outer layers of the skin to peel, revealing newer, smoother, and often less wrinkled skin beneath.

Our patients use chemical peels to improve the skin texture, diminish the appearance of acne and pores, and treat skin pigmentation. They can address various issues, such as age spots, acne scarring, sun damage, etc. Regular use of chemical peels can be beneficial in stimulating collagen, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin.

Chemical peels have varying levels of intensity, ranging from superficial to deep. We choose a formulation of chemical peel based on the desired outcome and the specific issues that need to be targeted. Recovery time will vary between one to seven days, depending on the depth chosen.
