Cosmetic Chemical Peels
from Maui Dermatologist Micki Ly M.D.
A chemical peel is a non-invasive technique for restoring wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented, or sun-damaged skin, using a chemical solution to peel away the skin's top layers. The new cells that form during the healing process produce a smoother, tighter, less wrinkles, more even tone and younger-looking skin surface.
Dr. Micki Ly, Board Certified Dermatologist, and "Dr. T", Board Certified in OB/GYN, discuss use of Chemical Peels and Lasers in Cosmetic Dermatology. Topics also covered are the decision to use a laser therapy or a chemical peel to treat conditions such as hyperpigmentation, also know as sun spots and age spots. The Doctors also chat about different types of chemical peels such as phenol, glycolic and Jessner to stimulate Collagen and also discuss Hydroquinone. This discussion is held on the Island of Maui in Hawaii.
