What are chemical peels?

Innovative Aesthetics offers chemical peels in Denver, CO. Chemical peels are a chemical exfoliation used to improve and smooth skin texture by removing its damaged outer layers. They can be used to treat acne, uneven pigmentation, mild scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, dry skin, rough, and sun-damaged skin. Pre-treating skin with topical skincare products may be necessary prior to chemical peels.

What to expect during chemical peels?

This depends on the chemical peel. The chemical solution is applied on clean and prepped skin and left on for varying lengths of time. Sometimes a neutralizing solution or water is used to remove the solution. In some instances, the chemical solution is left on the skin and it self-neutralizes. A moisturizer and sunblock are applied after. Post-care is discussed at the time of treatment, and take-home instructions are given.

We utilize various types of chemical peels, both pharmacy and specialty peels. The following are some of the most common chemical peels.
