I’ve seen a lot of over the counter facial peels. How are these different from chemical peels at a doctor’s office?
A chemical peel offered at a doctor’s office includes ingredients which are not available over-the-counter. These ingredients will be targeted at the specific concern of the patient and will allow for a deeper treatment with more comprehensive results. We also perform surgical strength peels in which the entire epidermis and a portion of the dermis is removed to allow for an even greater degree of improvement. These are performed under anesthesia.
