Smooth skin that is free of blemishes and alterations in skin tone can boost your sense of self-esteem about your appearance. Minor physical defects, such as acne, acne scars, liver spots, fine lines, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, minor scars, and rough skin or scaly patches on your skin can certainly affect your self-confidence.

Many of these minor blemishes can be addressed by having Dr. Natalie Driessen administer a chemical peel at her clinic in Palm Desert, California. This Perfect Dermal™ treatment uses a specially formulated chemical solution to smooth your skin’s texture.

While it is typically used to address facial features, a chemical peel can also be used to improve minor skin defects on your neck and hands.

It’s important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for a chemical peel. If you have a personal history of abnormal skin scarring, irregular pigmentation, warts on your face, Dr. Natalie Driessen might not recommend a chemical peel. This could also apply if you’ve had certain acne treatments performed in the last year.

Dr. Natalie Driessen will go over these factors and potential risks during your initial consultation. If a chemical peel is counter indicated she will present you with alternative treatment options.

If you live in the Palm Desert, California, area and you have aberrations in your skin tone that you would like addressed, you should call (760) 773-6616 to set up a consultation appointment at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists.
