When you typically think of chemical peels, you associate them with middle aged women who are looking to get rid of sun damage, treat wrinkles, and help improve their skin’s elasticity. However, did you know that chemical peels are also great for teenagers and individuals in their twenties and thirties? Read on to learn more.

Chemical peels are great at treating not just acne scarring but acne itself. By targeting the top few layers of your skin and encouraging the growth of new skin, chemical peels are great at treating acne scars and acne that is already present on the skin. Depending on either the severity of your acne or your acne scars, you and Dr. Goldman can determine how often you will need to get a chemical peel in order to get the results you desire.

Sun Damage
You don’t have to be middle aged in order to start noticing some signs of sun damage. In fact, many individuals in their twenties and thirties will start to notice the negative effects of the sun on their skin. Luckily, chemical peels are a quick, easy, and affordable way to help treat minimal sun damage and get you younger looking skin. Just as with acne treatments, chemical peels work to target the top layers of the skin in order to encourage the production of new skin and collagen— leaving you with a healthier and smoother looking complexion.

When it comes to chemical peels, you can start getting them in your late teens and twenties in order to treat acne, acne scarring, and early signs of sun damage. However, make sure that you communicate with Dr. Goldman in regards to what types of oral or topical medications that you’re on in order to ensure that you don’t cause further damage to your skin.
