Chemical Peel Treatments in Oakland

Before we get into facial plastic surgery procedures, let’s begin with skin. Having vibrant skin with a clear, smooth complexion is an immediate sign of looking healthy and youthful.

Our skin, especially our facial skin, is affected by the natural aging process, the joys and stress of life, exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays, and environmental damage. Over time, these factors cause lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and sagging skin.

But there’s good news: Yes, skin can be rejuvenated, and we can all have beautifully smooth, properly hydrated skin with an even complexion. A great way to rejuvenate skin is with chemical peels.

Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis, board-certified plastic surgeons in Oakland, offer physician-supervised chemical peels that will correct the signs of aging, reverse skin damage, and promote healthy skin texture and tone.

Benefits of chemical peels

Chemical peels can be applied to the face, neck, and hands. Chemical peels improve the look and feel of skin by:

  • Reducing the appearance of age spots and freckles
  • Treating fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage
  • Treating fine lines around the mouth and eyes
  • Reducing the appearance of mild scars
  • Treating some types of acne

How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels consist of specially formulated solutions that cause fine layers of old or damaged skin to slough or peel off. This reveals new, smooth, regenerated skin, resulting in a more youthful-looking you!

These special peels can treat different layers of the skin. An in-depth consultation with Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis will determine the type and depth of the chemical peel necessary to meet your aesthetic goals.

Chemical peels can make rejuvenated skin temporarily more susceptible to sun damage, so Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis advise their skin rejuvenation patients to wear sunscreen and limit exposure to the sun. The peels cannot treat deep wrinkles, sagging skin, or the loss of skin’s volume, so other minimally invasive procedures may be necessary. Luckily Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis offer these and other surgical procedures, such as facelift surgery, at their practice in Oakland.
