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.
Dr. Challgren is a very good dermatologist. He is conservative in his medical recommendations and very friendly and caring. He has done amazing things for the overall look of my skin. 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.*
After seeing the mixed reviews on every dermatologist in the area, I was reluctant about choosing a place to go. I had an infected cyst that was very painful and wanted it taken care of as soon as possible. I called their office, worried that like most places, they were booked up for the near future. But the receptionist took the time to talk with the nurse about fitting me in and I got an appointment the next morning, even though I was a new patient! Reception was very friendly when I got there and got me processed quickly. Dr. Briley was in the room in a few minutes after I was taken back. She was very friendly and explained everything to me about my situation. My cyst was taken care of quickly and I was out of there BEFORE we had even reached my scheduled appointment time. I am a small business owner and very much appreciate quality customer service and attention to the needs of those in need of service. I was very satisfied with my choice and would recommend them to anyone!*
Fabulous! I have been a client at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center for 2 years. Angie, Dr. Briley and the staff are excellent. They are very informative about the products and assist me in choosing the products to fit my skin care needs. Will go no where else.*
The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is never a waiting time of more than 10 minutes. Dr. Briley is the best. Always addresses my concerns in a competent and caring manner.
We were referred to Dr. Wilmoth about 4yrs ago. We have always had a reminder call and been seen in a relatively short time once we have signed in at the office. We have been treated very well by all staff members each time. We go to the N Raleigh office and Dr. W. is only there on Monday so we arrange our schedule to be sure we see him because he has always been very professional and gives clear directions and suggestions on how to avoid future problems. My husband develops small cancers every so often, mostly on his forehead and our experiences have all been very good.*
I hate going to the doctor period but this place is fantastic. I love my doctor she’s quick and thorough. If I need medical and cosmetic I’ve been treated same day. Both the doctors on staff as well as the nurses on the cosmetic side are very good at what they do.*
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.*
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.*
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!*
