Chemical Peels for Beautiful, glowing skin
Do you want beautiful, glowing skin?
Do you want FAST results with little to no downtime?
I’m board certified dermatologist Dr. Dina Strachan. I have over 10 years of experience helping my patients address a variety of skin problems using no-to-low downtime chemical peels. Chemical peels are one of the most popular procedures in my practice. They take just a few minutes and results may be seen in as little as 1 week. If you suffer from acne, acne scars, fine lines, blemishes, sun damage, razor bumps, or simply want a glowing, more youthful complexion, getting a chemical peel may be an effective, affordable way of addressing your condition.
WHAT is a chemical peel? It’s a procedure in which a chemical agents is applied to the skin causing the top layer to exfoliate and stimulation of collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. The new skin is usually smoother, and has a more even color. All of the chemical peels available at Aglow Dermatology are safe on all skin types.
