Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels services offered in Meridian, ID

Chemical peels rejuvenate your skin and repair cosmetic problems by removing one or more old, damaged skin layers. Skin problems disappear with the old cells, and then as new skin grows, it becomes firmer, smoother, and more resilient. Expert dermatologist Mary Ellen Luchetti, MD, has extensive experience evaluating skin and recommending the best peels to solve patients’ aesthetic concerns. If you have questions or want to schedule an appointment, call Integrated Dermatology of Boise in Meridian, Idaho, or use the online booking tool, which is fast and easy. 

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels encourage the turnover of the upper layers of skin to improve pigment and texture. A regular skincare and sun protection regimen improves your skin’s luminosity, radiance, and appearance while slowing the signs of aging. 

The three significant classifications of chemical peel are light (superficial peel), medium-depth peel, and deep chemical peel. Within these three major classifications are four common types of peels: Alpha Hydroxy acid, Beta Hydroxy acid, Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), and Phenol.

Which skin conditions are treated with chemical peels?

Your Integrated Dermatology of Boise provider can use high-quality chemical peels to target skin problems. Depending on the type of peel used, your provider can treat various skin conditions and issues:

  • Clogged pores and blemishes.
  • Skin redness.
  • Dry, dull-looking skin.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Acne and acne scarring.
  • Uneven skin texture.

Chemical peels can also help with age spots, sun damage, and other skin discolorations.

How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel, you should avoid picking your skin. Moisturize often, as letting the skin dry out may cause discomfort. Keep hydrated and wear sunscreen. 

Make sure to speak with your provider in more detail about caring for your skin after chemical peels and follow all their instructions for optimal results.  

How do I know if I am a good candidate for chemical peels?

A chemical peel can treat a wide variety of skin issues without surgery. It can resolve acne scars, wrinkles, crow's feet, moderate sagging, and sun damage. If you are bothered by any of these skin issues, you might be a good candidate for a chemical peel. 

Your Integrated Dermatology of Boise provider customizes chemical peels to match your aesthetic goals and individual needs. They review your medical history, examine your skin, and ask about your preferences. You might be a candidate for more than one type of cosmetic treatment to reap the most anti-aging benefits.
