This lovely patient was unhappy with her complexion after years of sun damage, brown spots, freckles, and melasma. I treated her with a deep chemical peel to achieve this significant improvement in her evenness and skin tone.
A deep chemical peel has about a week of downtime. It is an excellent treatment to combine with a surgical procedure, when you might be taking time off of work anyway. If you don't have the downtime to be out of the public eye for a week, I also perform moderate-depth mixed-modality chemical peels that have minimal to no visible peeling and no downtime.
Deep chemical peels may not be suited for all skin types and are safest for fair-skinned patients with sun damage. They are excellent for lightening dark spots and getting rid of fine lines.
