Chemical Peels TampaMost of us have been taught that peeling is a bad thing. When peeling is the result of a bad sunburn, this lesson is true. There are other times, however, when a controlled peel can be extremely beneficial to the appearance of the skin. Tampa dermatologist Dr. Lombardi uses safe and gentle chemical peels to minimize the appearance of sun damage through the removal of dead and damaged cells.
For more than a century, skin care professionals have been performing chemical peels, treatment designed to produce controlled exfoliation of the top layer of skin cells. Peels also carry the benefit of promoting the production of elastin and collagen, two ingredients that are vital to the supportive structure beneath the skin. After treatment, our patients enjoy renewed vibrancy and smooth texture that lasts for weeks.
Some of the conditions that improve with chemical peel treatment include:
- Enlarged pores
- Sun spots
- Fine lines
Types of chemical peels
Stronger chemical peels may be suited to men and women with extensive sun damage or wrinkling they wish to correct. The increased strength of ingredients such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA) reaches deeper layers of skin and it will produce a greater extent of peeling. As such, the deeper peel may require a few days of "downtime" away from the sunlight. As old, damaged cells detach from the surface, the skin will reveal a healthy glow.
