If you have areas of pigmentation that bother you, such as age spots, sunspots, or even dark freckles, you may be a good candidate for the depigmentation peel at Silk, A Medical Spa in Encino, CA. Drs. George Sanders and Stephen Bresnick encourage you to learn about this and other skincare services at our state-of-the-art skincare practice.
What Is a Depigmentation Peel?
A depigmentation peel is a type of chemical peel specifically designed to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented areas. These peels contain ingredients that lighten the skin and help even out skin tone while also exfoliating away dead skin cells.
How Is a Depigmentation Peel Administered?
The process for a depigmentation peel can be done in-office or at home, depending on your needs and preferences. In-office treatments typically involve applying a solution containing an active ingredient such as glycolic acid to the affected area, which causes a reaction that removes melanin from the skin’s surface. At-home options are usually milder versions of in-office peels and require less time and effort than professional treatments. However, they may require more treatments to obtain the same results as a more aggressive depigmentation peel performed at the office of Silk, A Medical Spa.
What Are the Benefits of a Depigmentation Peel?
The advantages of depigmentation peels include the following:
- Improved clarity and evenness of skin tone
- Reduced appearance of dark spots, freckles, and age spots
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin texture
- Overall improved complexion and increased luminosity
Please note that depigmentation peels can only be used on specific areas of the body and should not be used on the face or lips. Additionally, these types of treatments can potentially cause irritation or other side effects, so it is critical that you speak with a provider at Silk, A Medical Spa, before undergoing any type of chemical peel to ensure your safety.
