The official day of fall is arriving on September 22. This means it’s time to consider which skin care treatment is the right one to help reverse any summertime sun damage.

Fall is your opportunity to dive into skin restoration.

Dr. Bolitho, a board certified surgeon in La Jolla, offers non-operative facial rejuvenation techniques to give your skin a youthful boost.

The most popular one on his menu is chemical peels. This procedure, which lasts under 60 minutes, helps improve the overall texture of your skin. Chemical peels treat sun damaged skin, and the results, are sometimes immediate.

A series of chemical peels is the best way to optimize younger looking skin.

Other great skin care perks from chemical peels include:

• Lessens the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
• Lessens the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, such as freckles and age spots
• Smoothes out areas of acne scarring

A chemical peel rejuvenates the skin. While it repairs damaged cells, it also stimulates collagen. And collagen is the core to radiant, youthful skin.

Dr. Bolitho utilizes two types of chemical peels at his office: alphahydroxy acids (AHA) and trichloroacetic acid (TCA).

TCA peels can be offered at different strength levels. Patients have the option to start off with a more mild peel and then work their way up to a higher level in their series.

A series can range from three to five peels.

And a TCA peel is ideal for darker skin types as well as neck treatment.

Another great antidote for sun-damaged skin is the AHA peel. Some patients may require several visits to achieve the texture they want, but this varies from person to person.

If you’re unsure as to which chemical peel is the right one for you than Dr. Bolitho and his team can help. They are the experts in skin care.

If requested, Dr. Bolitho’s knowledgeable staff can also direct you on the best “at-home” daily skin care regimen.

To learn more about chemical peels and to find out which one is right for you, please contact Dr. Bolitho’s team at (866) 738-9360 or e-mail them at [email protected].
