Chemical Peels

Many men and women choose chemical peels in San Jose, CA to reduce wrinkles and tighten skin without surgery. Chemical peels remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new cells to improve the complexion by correcting uneven pigmentation, reducing acne scars, reversing sun damage and minimizing age spots. Dr. Hoffman offers the Obagi Blue Peel®, which is a TCA peel that addresses uneven skin tone, discoloration and surface wrinkles.

Through his medical training at Stanford and many years of experience, Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman has learned how to successfully fine-tune chemical peel concentration and duration to cater to each of his patients’ needs.

The Procedure

The skin is cleansed and the peel is applied and allowed to set for a specific amount of time before being removed. Your skin will have a slight bluish tint for 12 to 24 hours after treatment.

Recovery and Results

Light swelling will occur following the procedure, and after about 2 to 3 days the top layers of skin will start to peel. This peeling may last up to 7 to 10 days, and as peeling occurs, younger and healthier skin will be revealed. Additional improvements in skin texture and tone can be expected over the next 4 to 6 weeks. A series of peels may be needed over time to keep your skin looking fresh, and it is important to maintain your refreshed complexion with the Obagi skin care products Dr. Hoffman recommends.

Many San Jose facelift, eyelid surgery, and brow lift patients use chemical peels to enhance their results after surgery. Combining skin-restoring treatments can help you achieve the most out of your cosmetic enhancement experience.
