A chemical peel is a technique that can be used to improve the appearance of your skin. It can be applied on the face, hands or neck. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
There are three basic types of peels:
- Superficial or lunchtime peel: a mild acid is used to penetrate the outer layer of the skin to gently exfoliate. This treatment helps improve the appearance of mild discoloration and rough skin.
- Medium peel: a stronger acid is used to exfoliate the outer and middle layers of the skin. This treatment is used to improve fine lines, freckles and moderate skin discoloration.
- Deep peel: a strong acid is applied to deeply penetrate that middle layers of the skin to remove damaged skin cells. This procedure is only used on the face and can only be performed once.
The Service at the Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center never fails to amaze me. Everyone that I have encountered there is so courteous and pleasant. I will definitely continue my services for all of my aesthetic needs here. I highly recommend them for any of your aesthetic needs. You see immediate results and if you have any questions at all, they take time out and give you detailed information on the services in question.*
First off let me give you a little back story. I have been trying to get help with my skin for many years. The dermatologists that I have been to couldn’t figure out my problem. Each time I saw one, it would be three months until I can get in. I tried to get into Duke, and they kept giving me the run-around. When I finally had enough, the head of HR said that they can’t help me. I was desperate and found The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center of Raleigh. I told them my story and they said, I’m sorry but we don’t have anything open for today, how about tomorrow. I couldn’t believe it, the next day and I was in. I explained my issues to the nurse and she took notes. Very quickly, the doctor came in and examined me. He included me his diagnosis and explained to me what he thinks it could be. He also worked with me with my current finical issue. He was able to do testing that would keep my cost down. Even after the testing, he made time to see me (not a scheduled visit) and explained his findings. His whole staff is very helpful. Everyone knows me by name. Everyone is very friendly yet professional. I will recommend this place to anyone that needs help with their skin.*
I went to Dr Wilmoth on two occasions, both stemming from basal carcinoma on my face. He is a caring, compassionate doctor who is the best in his field. Dr Wilmoth performed Mohs surgery on me twice. I have a background in Biology. I highly recommend him.*
Very Impressed. After reading the reviews for Dr Boyse I almost canceled my appointment. I’m glad I didn’t. The whole experience was pleasant. It was very easy to check in, the staff was very helpful. When the nurse called my name I was still a little nervous. The nurse was very pleasant. She asked me some questions about what I do for my acne. She was very nice. I was less nervous after speaking to her. Dr Boyse came in the room and reviewed my routine and diet. She really explained what causes acne and how to treat it. She gave me some great suggestions. After she left Nichole went over my new medications again, made sure I understood it. She even gave me samples! I told her that I have tried so many things in the past and was really hoping this works. She shared that she also has acne and how important it is to stick with a routine. It was reassuring to hear her tell me this. Her skin is flawless. Very Impressed. The whole experience was pleasant. It was very easy to check in, the staff was very helpful.

I never thought it was possible to go in public without makeup. I will recommend Dr Boyse too all my friends.*
The best dermatologists in the Triangle area. I have been a patient of the Dermatology & Skin Care Center since 2005. I recommend them highly. The Skin Care Center not only offers state of the art procedures, they are affordable. The staff and doctors listen carefully to your concerns and recommend only what they think you need to address your problem. Pleasant and professional at all times.*
I became a patient at Southern Dermatology (formerly The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center, PA) when my original doctor in Chapel Hill suggested I find someone closer to my home and work. I needed to have a skin condition addressed in urgent order. I searched around various online media and I came across Southern Dermatology. I called their office on Lake Boone Trail and asked if they were taking on new patients. The person that had answered said that they were. When I verified the type of insurance that I had, an appointment was scheduled for me. When I arrived at the office, I was greeted by the front desk person. After getting the obligatory paperwork out of the way and waiting for a short period in the waiting room, I was called in. The nurse asked me various questions to help determine my condition, etc. Then, after a short wait, Dr. Challgren walked in and introduced himself. He recommended the appropriate treatment and I have been under that treatment for the past six weeks. Since then, I have gotten to know nearly the entire staff and I can vouch that these are some of the nicest and most professional individuals that I have met. I would highly recommend this practice for their ability to address even the most complex dermatological issues. My experience has been excellent!*
Love Southern Dermatology! Always get good, fast, and professional care. Dr. Challgren is personable and kind and gives good care. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful visit. Dr. Briley was easy to talk to and personable. She made my daughter feel comfortable at her very first appointment and really listened and is willing to help us improve my daughter’s life long fight with eczema.
I’m still pleased with the staff and, services I receive during my visits. The service is GREAT!!! From the moment you walk in the door it’s like being with old friends. I’ve been using the services for years and every time I visit the service is top notch.*
A+ for Dr. Briley and staff. I feel confident I am in good hands with Dr. Briley. She is attentive, caring and extremely knowledgeable . They usually are able to schedule me the next day and I’m always called back within 5 minutes of waiting in the office.*
