Find out if a chemical peel is the right cosmetic treatment for your skin
Are you looking to improve your skin tone? Do you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Do you hate having sun damage and age spots for all the world to see? If so, then our team of Encinitas, CA dermatologists Dr. David Thomas and Dr. Margaret Hobson Dupree are here to shed light on how a chemical peel can improve the look and health of your skin.
What is a chemical peel?
During the cosmetic treatment, we will apply a chemical solution over your skin. The purpose of this solution is to remove the damaged, outer layers of the skin. The new skin is generally smoother and less wrinkled.
This is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to even out skin tone. There are different types of chemical peels available. Be sure to share your treatment goals with our Encinitas dermatologists to make sure you get the right chemical peel for you.
What are the benefits of getting a chemical peel?
There is a lot that chemical peels can offer you. You may want to consider getting a chemical peel if you are looking to improve the appearance of:
Lines and wrinkles
Chemicals peels range from light to deep. Light chemical peels can help improve the texture of your skin and may even reduce the appearance of superficial acne scars. Deeper chemical peels, on the other hand, are able to tackle more deep-set wrinkles and sun damage. The type of chemical peel you get will depend on the severity of the skin issues you are looking to address.

Find out how your Encinitas dermatologist can give you smoother, younger-looking skin.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Youth is wasted on the young.” When we were younger we didn’t worry about issues such as sagging, wrinkled skin. Of course, as we’ve gotten older our skin has lost its elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles have begun to spread across our face. While your Encinitas dermatologists Drs. David Thomas and Margaret Dupree can’t give you your youth back, they can certainly help you look younger with any of these anti-aging treatments.
If you are looking for a non-invasive and quick way to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles of the face and neck, Botox injections could give you the results you want. In just a couple of minutes, you could be on your way to younger-looking skin. Just keep in mind that the results only last about four months before wrinkles return, but patients can opt for additional injections to maintain their results.
Chemical peels are also a great option for anyone looking to improve the look of their face, neck or hands. By removing the outermost layer of skin, this treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen. This helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage, as well as freckles, dark spots, superficial scars and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. Chemical peels also improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. However, if you are looking for a way to reduce severe wrinkles or skin sagging, you will want to turn to a stronger cosmetic treatment.
Want to get fuller lips? Want to add volume back into aging skin? Looking to reduce the look of superficial scars or hyperpigmentation? Then dermal fillers could be the answer. Dermal fillers won’t offer the same results as a facelift but it can be a great way to boost your appearance and reduce those early signs of aging. Heredity and sun exposure can take quite a toll on facial volume, and dermal fillers help you look younger.
Using a rotating handheld device your Encinitas dermatologist will remove the outer layers of skin to reveal radiant, healthy skin and to reduce the look of surface scars, wrinkles and lines, acne scars and enlarged pores. Skin will be red and possibly tender for several weeks after your procedure. It’s important that you are aware of the recovery process and to give your skin time to heal in order to see the results you want.
