Chemical Peels

Dr. Blose’s tailored approach matches chemical peels and clients in Downey

Two of the 10 cities with the highest concentration of dermatologists are in Los Angeles County.

Dr. Blose and his team stand out in Downey and the surrounding area by understanding the options for chemical peels, and matching each client with the best procedure to get him or her looking and feeling great.

A darker-complexioned client with deep wrinkles and a flexible schedule, for example, doesn’t need the same type of a peel as a fairer-skinned client with fine lines and limited time.

Your options

There are two different types of chemical peels, as follows:
  • Superficial peels penetrate the outermost layer of skin, the epidermis.
  • Medium peels reach the next or middle layer of skin, the dermis.
You may be a good candidate for a superficial peel if …
  • You have very light or very dark skin at risk of permanent pigment changes from stronger peels.
  • You have acne or minor lines.
  • You want to reduce the look of discoloration caused by melasma (“pregnancy mask”) or sun damage.
  • Your schedule requires minimal healing time.
  • You are outdoors a lot for your job.
  • You don’t mind repeating the process to get desired results.
You may be a good candidate for a medium peel if …
  • You have moderate skin discoloration.
  • Your lines and wrinkles bother you.
  • You have precancerous lesions, like actinic keratosis.
  • You can handle seven days of healing time.
  • You don’t have to be in the sun (for work or otherwise) during the healing process.
  • You are prepared to repeat the procedure six to 12 months later.

Other considerations

Some of the more gentle peels may be used with other treatments. Chemical peels may not be right for you if you have skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema, or if you have taken medications like Accutane recently. Dr. Blose builds treatment around you.
