Chemical peels are used for the treatment of rough, discolored, sun-damaged skin. They also aid in the treatment of acne and improve fine lines by promoting the growth of new collagen and improving the texture and tone of your skin. The results will leave you with soft and smooth, evenly-toned, glowing skin. A series of peels is recommended in order to achieve the best results. Ask Dr. Rasmussen which chemical peel is right for you.
