Erase Summer Damage With a Chemical Peel

As summer comes to an end, all of that sun exposure may have taken a toll on your skin. As your tan fades, you may notice areas of spotting, freckling, and wrinkling. For a minimally invasive makeover in a short amount of time, a chemical peel is the way to go.

While there are several at-home peels on the market, they don’t meet the quality and potency of a chemical peel administered by a board-certified physician. That’s why Surinder Sandhu, MD, at New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, suggests you come in when you’re ready to enhance your appearance with aesthetic treatments.

From microneedling to laser hair removal to fillers and Botox®, Dr. Sandhu offers a range of services to meet your needs and goals. If you’re ready to seriously brighten your skin, get to know the benefits of a chemical peel.

Understanding chemical peels 

A chemical peel is a specialized skin treatment that’s designed to improve the appearance of your skin, especially after a summer outdoors. Chemical peels address a wide range of problematic skin conditions, such as:

A chemical peel isn’t like a spa facial mask. The peels use a chemical solution to slough away dead cells and dirt in order to lighten and brighten your skin’s appearance. The intensity of your results depend on whether you receive a superficial peel, a medium peel, or a deep peel.

Regardless of which chemical peel you select, Dr. Sandhu helps you prepare for your treatment and then teaches you how to care for your skin after a chemical peel. Your after-care and downtime depend on which type of chemical peel you choose.

Brighten up with a chemical peel

When you think about exfoliation, you might think about a scratchy facial scrub for your face or a metal grater for your rough feet — but these aren’t the only options for exfoliating dry, tired skin. Chemical peels are also called chemexfoliation.

The customized chemicals in a professional peel solution eliminate dead, dry skin. With deeper treatments, dead skin just peels away. Because those dead skin cells are what create that dull look to your skin, your skin’s appearance is much brighter afterward. 

Unlike a facial or other exfoliation therapies, a chemical peel can penetrate your skin more deeply, which is why you can get impressive results from the procedure. Chemical peels improve rough texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, minimize facial redness, and soften the appearance of unsightly blemishes.

At New Image Medical Spa, Dr. Sandhu’s highest aspiration is to help you achieve beautiful, healthy, glowing skin. Whether you’re considering a chemical peel or another aesthetic service, she can answer your questions and help you reach your goals.
