Your skin is exposed to many things throughout the course of the year, including sun, wind, and moisture. You do what you can at home to take care of your skin, but if you’ve noticed discoloration, increased lines, or irregular textures, it could be a good idea to consult a cosmetic surgeon. At Cosmetic Surgery Hawaii, we’ve helped many people restore their skin to a beautiful and youthful appearance, and can discuss with you whether a chemical peel is a viable option for your body.

Before your skin is treated, Dr. Watkins and our staff will discuss with you the condition of your skin and the amount of treatment it needs. The amount of time that the solution is left on your skin is dependent on how deeply it needs to permeate, and that is reliant on the condition of your skin. It’s normal to experience tenderness following your chemical peel, and we will recommend the proper home skincare following the treatment. You will most likely experience peeling, as with a sunburn, and for those that received a deeper peel, your skin may crust in places. If you feel that something isn’t right with your skin following the treatment, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

If you feel that your skin could benefit from a chemical peel this summer, visit your cosmetic surgeons in Kaneohe today. We have helped many patients experience smooth and healthy skin, and will design a peel treatment that remedies discoloration, dull textures, and fine lines that have formed over the course of the past year.
