Chemical Peels & Skin Treatments in the Florida Keys
What is a chemical peel?
At Pruett Dermatology, we offer chemical peels, which help improve the look of aging or damaged skin. A chemical peel is a unique skin resurfacing procedure, which utilizes chemical solutions that sit on your skin and are then peeled away. As the solution is peeled away, it also removes layers of damaged skin to leave healthy-looking, smoother, and younger-feeling skin. Chemical peels are popular for their ability to quickly and non-surgically reduce the look of fine lines and damage to the outermost layers of skin.
Why are chemical peels used?
One of our specialized physicians at Pruett Dermatology in Florida may recommend a chemical peel for you if you’re unhappy with the way your skin appears due to:

- Redness on skin
- Scarring (including acne scarring)
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark spots

How do chemical peels work at Pruett Dermatology?
Before Your Chemical Peels
Before your peel, spend time working with one of our knowledgeable skin care experts at Pruett Dermatology to decide which kind of chemical peel is the right choice for your skin type, skin concerns, and skin care goals. Check with your physician to determine how long you will need for your skin to fully heal following the procedure, especially if you are doing the procedure before an event.
During Your Chemical Peel
During the peel, one of our dermatologists will gently apply the chemical solution for you during a short in-office procedure. Depending on which chemical peel you are using, the steps and lengths of your procedure might vary.
After Your Chemical Peel
Your skin may continue to peel after the procedure. Most patients are able to continue their daily activities after their peel, with some experiencing redness. Talk with your physician to learn more about what to expect in the days following your chemical peel at Pruett Dermatology.
