About Chemical Peels with SkinMedica®
Chemical peels for anti-aging skin care can be an important part of helping you maintain a youthful appearance. Chemical peeling is an accelerated form of exfoliation that began in ancient Egypt more than 5000 years ago. During the crusades, old wine with tartaric acid became a popular skin care remedy. In that late 1800s sugar cane derived acids were used in Polynesia and the Caribbean. These combinations of chemical agents contained alpha hydroxyl acids, the active ingredients responsible for skin exfoliation.

Physicians soon began using skin peeling for therapeutic benefits. In the late 1800s, they found that a variety of chemicals applied to the skin would reduce age-related skin changes, freckles and acne scarring. They also found that the process reoriented the new skin connective tissue. Collagen remodeling is the main goal of chemical peels and the reason they improve sun damaged skin by improving the texture and reducing wrinkles. From the 1980s to the present, chemical peels still remain effective therapeutic options for skin rejuvenation. Their simplicity and low cost make them an ideal complement to every skin care regimen.

At The Eye Care & Surgery Center we are pleased to offer our patients a variety of SkinMedica® anti-aging skin care chemical peels and products. These medical grade products are a must have for optimal skin repair and rejuvenation and utilize a combination of light peeling agents that induce sloughing of the cells in the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) with little or no downtime. The epidermis heals in only a few days giving the skin an improved appearance, more even skin color, smoother texture and a healthier glow. Deeper chemical peeling products create inflammation to the Dermis (the second layer of skin) where regeneration can take weeks, even months.
