As we age, the sun and other environmental factors can take a toll on our skin, leaving it dull and feeling damaged. Over time, these weakened skin cells can cause wrinkles and discolorations to develop, which can make us appear older than we truly are. Fortunately, the chemical peels offered at our Greenville practice are effective at treating fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, acne, and other skin conditions to reveal healthy, glowing, rejuvenated skin. We offer a variety of non-invasive chemical peels, including the modified Jessner's and glycolic acid chemical peels, which can be customized to meet the individual needs and goals of each patient.
Glycolic Chemical Peels - One of the lightest chemical peels offered at our Greenville practice, Glycolic acid chemical peels provide mild, yet effective treatment for acne, fine wrinkles, dry skin, and skin discolorations. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from fruit that exfoliates oily skin, revealing the smooth, healthy skin underneath. These gentle chemical peels also unclog pores as well as promote skin cell regeneration with little-to-no irritation. Multiple treatments may be needed for optimal results.
Modified Jessner's Chemical Peels - For individuals who desire a deeper treatment than glycolic acid chemical peels, we offer modified Jessner's chemical peels at our Greenville practice. Jessner's chemical peels are made of a combination of resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid that work to improve the appearance of acne-prone, sun-damaged, or hyperpigmented skin. Jessner's chemical peels penetrate deeper into the epidermis than glycolic acid chemical peels, but remain gentle, even on sensitive skin. The result is smoother, more even skin texture and tone.
