Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use a chemical solution to improve the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), the mildest of the peel formulas, can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin and are used to treat fine wrinkles. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), a medium-depth peel, is most commonly used in a variety of concentrations to treat fine wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems. Phenol is the strongest of the chemical solutions and produces a deep peel. Dr. Kutlu may offer you a choice of peel techniques or suggest a combination of peels to obtain the best result for you.
