To remove the damaged outer layers of skin, Drs. Jenson and Edwards can provide a chemical peel in Orem, Utah. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to smooth your skin’s texture. They are usually used on the face, but they can also be used to improve the skin of the neck and hands. A chemical peel is a noninvasive way to improve the appearance of skin left uneven, wrinkled, spotted, or scarred by sun exposure, acne, or age.

A chemical peel can lessen:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin

If you have any of the following, you may not be a good candidate for chemical peeling:

  • A history of abnormal skin scarring
  • Abnormal pigmentation
  • Afro-Caribbean or Asian skin
  • Warts on the face
  • Red hair and pale, freckled skin
  • Had certain acne treatments performed in the last year

If our dermatologists determine that a chemical peel is right for you, they will adjust the formula used to meet your individual needs.
