Mid-level peels go beyond the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) to affect the second layer of the skin (dermis).
Dr. Ehlert performs all mid-level peels personally. Mid-level peels can improve:
- Moderate facial wrinkles
- Brown spots
- Early pre-cancerous changes
- Mild to moderate acne scarring
- Roughened texture
- Mild skin laxity
Mid-level peels are only performed on the face and are not appropriate for darker skin types. Visible skin peeling occurs over the course of 5-7 days. Treated skin is usually much smoother and less blotchy following a mid-level peel and fine lines/wrinkles continue to improve over the course of several months.
