Chemical peels are performed in the office surgical suite by Dr. Kiesnowski. Several different types of chemical peel are offered by our office. Superficial peels will improve skin condition and improve smoothness of the skin. Mild redness may last for several days. Medium depth peels will also affect the structure of the skin decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Medium depth peels also have a significant effect on abnormal facial pigmentation. Redness and peeling can last for five to ten days. Deep chemical peels produce dramatic changes but require a general anesthetic.
