When You Think Spring, Think Chemical Peels and Dermal Fillers

With winter over and summer just a few months away, this spring is a good time to think about some simple strategies that can pay off big-time where the appearance of your skin is concerned. That’s why we say, when you think spring, think chemical peels and dermal fillers from DermSurgery Associates, Houston’s most-trusted network of dermatology clinics and dermatologists.

What do chemical peels do for the skin?

Chemical peels, as the name implies, are just that: a peeling process rather than a surgical procedure. When administered by a skilled dermatologist, chemical peels are perfect for restoring a more youthful, natural appearance to problem skin areas. This treatment is ideal in most cases for:

  • Fine lines near the eyes and mouth
  • Acne and the scarring acne leaves behind
  • Freckles and other skin discoloration such as age spots and brown spots
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Areas of rough or scaly skin

Known medically as chemexfoliation, a chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to targeted areas of the skin and then peeled away, removing outer layers of skin that are damaged. Chemical peels are regularly used on the face, neck, chest and hands.

If you’re ready to address some of these unsightly skin conditions, ask one of our dermatologists today if a chemical peel is a good choice for you this spring. Peels are offered at most of our many service locations.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are among the very best treatments for wrinkled skin and related conditions. Why do we get wrinkles? The main reason is, as we age, we lose subcutaneous fat, which results in various levels of skin recession. Dermal fillers are introduced beneath the skin to add more volume and literally push wrinkles away.

Conditions that respond well to dermal fillers include:

  • Smile lines
  • Thin lips
  • Crow’s feet
  • Recessed scars
  • Shallow areas

Along with fat loss beneath the skin, other age-related factors can contribute to wrinkling such as skin laxity and skin damage. In the majority of these cases, dermal fillers are a proven method for restoring the smooth skin you may have thought you’d lost forever.
