Treat fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring with quality skin peels

Sometimes our skin needs a little help to look its best. That is why Aleta Sloan at United Medical and Aesthetics of Wilmington, North Carolina, encourages patients to take the time to learn about these amazing treatments that can improve the texture and tone of the skin in a single visit. That includes popular services such as skin peels.

What is the face peeling treatment?

Skin peels, sometimes known as chemical peels, can repair damage caused by aging, scars, acne, and the sun. They accomplish this by applying an acidic solution to the skin that causes it to peel off. This process reveals new skin underneath, which has a better tone, texture, and color than before. The way these solutions work depends on the type you choose: alpha-hydroxy acids (fruit-derived), beta hydroxy acids (using salicylic acid), trichloroacetic acid, or phenol. Aleta Sloan of United Medical and Aesthetics will be able to help you select one that’s right for your needs and determine how many treatments will be needed based on your individual circumstances.

What can skin peels treat?

Most patients who choose skin peels are looking for the treatment of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Skin imperfections
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Skin texture and tone

Who is a proper candidate for skin peels?

The best candidates for this treatment are those who have otherwise healthy skin but need to address imperfections and the signs of aging. By removing the top layer of dead cells from the skin, this process allows for new cells below to take their place and provides a noticeable improvement in the skin’s appearance and health. During a consultation appointment, Aleta Sloan and her team will evaluate a patient’s skin and determine if they are a suitable candidate for this or other skin treatments available at the office.
