Chemical peels from your anti-aging specialist in Beaverton
For patients wishing to take years off their appearance, chemical peels are an excellent solution to rejuvenate reveal clearer, smoother skin. Aging takes a toll on our skin. Years of sun exposure, acne, and wrinkles can leave you unable to recognize your own reflection in the mirror. Dr. Maddox is a specialist in anti-aging services such as chemical peels that can help patients in Beaverton look and feel their best.
Our skin is the largest organ on our body. Years of exposure to UV rays and pollutants in the air can leave you with fine lines, deep wrinkles, blemishes, and sunspots. We naturally shed our entire skin about once a month and our body’s healing process begins immediately replenishing skin cells. Chemical peels build on this natural body process by removing the top layers of damaged skin and allowing new, healthy skin cells to grow. The result is an elimination in imperfections, uncovering a more even texture and skin tone.
Depending on your individual need, you may need one chemical peel or several peels to achieve desired results. Dr. Maddox will continually monitor your skin and adjust the strength of the chemical solution used. There are three types of chemical peels: light, medium, and deep.
Recovery from chemical peels depends on the level of peel received. You will be given aftercare instructions to take care of the skin properly to speed healing, prevent infection, and prolong results. All patients must use daily sunscreen, as new skin cells are very susceptible to sun damage. It is important to keep the skin hydrated and maintain a simple daily skincare routine.
