Dermatologist West Los Angeles | Studio City | San Fernando Valley
Chemical peels remove the outer layers of skin on the face and neck to improve the texture and appearance producing healthy, glowing skin.
Peels can lighten dark spots that result from the natural aging process, sun exposure, and/or post-pregnancy. Certain peels can improve acne and their scars, while others are used to clear the skin of pre-cancerous growths.
Dr. Kassabian tailors peel formulas and strengths to each patient. Below is a list of chemical peels that Dr. Kasabian provides:
- Glycolic acid
- Salicylic acid
- Modified Jessner’s
- Cosmelan bleaching system
- VI Peel
After a peel, the treated face will usually be pink or red and the skin may peel. Sunscreen use and sun avoidance is strongly recommended. A series of 3 peels spaced 4-6 weeks apart produces the best results.
