Chemical Peel Sarasota, FL
Each time we step outside, we are exposed to numerous factors that are damaging the skin. While we may not notice the effects on a daily basis, it is important to know that those factors are mainly responsible for dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and breakouts. Our bodies try to diminish these effects by shedding the damaged layers of the epidermis, but sometimes this simply is not enough. This is where chemical peels come in and help us to shed those damaged cells faster.
A chemical peel at American Dermatology Associates in Sarasota, FL, is a chemical solution that is applied to the face and neck to slough away dead skin cells and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Chemical peels reveal new, younger skin for a smoother, more youthful look.
