Dermatologists such as Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology are excited to offer Plano, TX area patients with a wide range of medical and cosmetic dermatology solutions to improve their skin. At DSA Dermatology, we are strong believers in rejuvenation of the skin to maintain a youthful, beautiful appearance even as patients age. There are many services available to patients who want to avoid the development of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as those who want to address hyperpigmentation concerns or acne blemishes and scarring. For most patients, they may be introduced by a professional to the advantages of chemical peels.
Chemical peels are skin treatments which are done to rejuvenate skin cell turnover and improve the texture and tone of the skin. They are done by applying specific chemicals to the skin and then washing them off. By doing this, it allows the chemicals to activate the skin’s natural healing process, stimulating it to boost collagen production and shed the old, upper layers of the skin. Chemical peels have been used for decades for concerns such as acne and aging.
There are several types of chemical peels that Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell provide in their practice. Determining which one is appropriate for your specific skin needs is done during the initial consultation visit at DSA Dermatology. Here are just a few of the common chemical peels performed at our practice:
- Glycolic acid
- Salicylic acid
- Lactic acid
- Trichloracetic acid
- Retinoic acid
Some of these peels are more mild while others are more aggressive. A consultation appointment and evaluation with one of our team members will allow patients the ability to choose the one best suited for their specific needs. Patients will also be educated on what to expect after their peel. Mild peels may result in some redness afterwards, while more aggressive peels can cause extensive peeling and flaking of the skin over the course of several days. Determining the one best for a specific patient must be done with the guidance of a quality dermatologist such as those available through DSA Dermatology.
