Most people experience acne at some point in their life – usually as a teenager. But for others, acne never really goes away. It can be embarrassing and frustratingly hard to get rid of. The key to healing acne is to open the pores and cleanse the skin of dead cells and acne-causing bacteria. Chemical peels with glycolic acid can help. Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in sugar cane. When used in skincare products, it offers many rejuvenating and moisturizing benefits to the skin. In its raw state, glycolic acid is a powder made up of colorless crystals that have no scent. Glycolic acid is found in many chemical peels. It’s a safe and effective way to exfoliate and remove the outer layer of the skin. This encourages new skin cell growth and removes dead or damaged cells. Exfoliation and removing dead cells prevents cell build-up on the skin, which causes a dull complexion and clogged pores, leading to acne. Oily and acne-prone skin usually has slower rates of natural exfoliation, making it [...]
Unwanted pigmentation problems, like sun damage, brown spots, redness, or splotchy skin can cause our faces to age prematurely. A smooth, even complexion is often associated with youth. Though the best treatment is prevention through use of sunscreen, flawless skin is attainable. Laser Skin Care Center offers several treatments to treat hyperpigmentation and sun damage specifically. Chemical Peels Chemical Peels come in several different intensities (mild, medium, and deep) and remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face for smoother texture, diminished blemishes and pre-cancerous growths, improved scarring, and glowing skin. Chemical peels enhance cell turnover and improve collagen production. Fraxel Fraxel laser produces thousands of microscopic laser columns, which penetrate deep into the skin. The heat from the energy bursts removes damaged cells but does not cause significant damage to surrounding healthy tissues. This treats uneven pigmentation commonly associated with sun spots, melasma, and even precancerous conditions.

Acne affects approximately 80% of people at some point in their life – typically as a teenager and young adult. What should be a temporary inconvenience can turn into a lifetime of redness, blotchiness, and scarring, even after the acne itself has faded. When over-the-counter acne skin care products and prescription acne preparations such as Accutane® are not effective in reducing, controlling, or eliminating an individual's acne, a chemical peel could help. During a chemical peel, chemicals are applied to the skin to destroy the outer layers of the skin – the layers damaged by acne. A chemical peel speeds up our body’s natural exfoliation process. Chemical peels have different strengths and depths of penetration, including deep, medium, and light. Their technical names are: alphahydroxy acid (AHA) or glycolic acid peels, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels, and phenol peels. AHA peels are the lightest and most gentle; TCA peels are a bit stronger; and phenol peels are the strongest.
