Light Chemical Peels in Greensboro, NC

Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, P.A. offers light chemical peels to the residents of Greensboro, Burlington, and surrounding North Carolina communities desiring medical spa treatments.

Understanding Chemical Peels

Chemical peeling involves the application of a solution to peel away the top layers of the skin. During the healing process that follows, the top cell layer is replaced with a fresh new skin surface. Chemical peels can erase, fade, or reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of sun-damage, help clear acne, smooth some scarring, and reduce the appearance of melasma.

A variety of chemical solutions can be used to produce peels of varying depths. The outcome of the peel is dependent upon the chemical solution and the way it is applied. A chemical peel may reduce or remove freckles, age spots, and uneven pigmentation. Some peels can be repeated on a regular basis to maintain fresh, smooth skin.

Who Is a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Men and women of all ages can benefit from a chemical peel. We have many types and strengths of peels which can be combined and layered to address your skin’s needs. However, the best candidates for deeper peels are individuals with fair skin who have a tendency toward fine wrinkling.

Before the Procedure

During the consultation, Dr. Coley assesses the patient’s skin type and areas of concern. General health and medical history also help Dr. Coley individualize the timing and type of peel that best fits each patient.

During the Procedure

The procedure begins with cleansing of the skin. Then the chemical solution is applied to facial areas. Most patients experience a light burning sensation that quickly subsides. The procedure usually takes 15 to 30 minutes.

Understanding the Recovery

Dr. Coley prescribes a specific routine based upon skin type and the solution that was applied. Some redness and swelling may occur and should be expected to resolve within a few days. Most patients resume normal activities within one to seven days. Care should be taken to avoid direct sunlight and to wear sunscreen.

Understanding the Results

Most patients enjoy the noticeable improvement in texture, reduction in acne, hyperpigmentation, and sun-damage from a chemical peel. The slight inconvenience and a few days of social downtime are a small price to pay for younger, smoother, clearer looking skin.
