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.*
My insurance changed about a year ago and I could no longer see Dr. Laura and I realized how wonderful she is compared to other dermatologists in the area. I have severe plaque psoriasis and have struggled to find ANY medication that even slightly helped. Since working with Laura we have finally found a medication that works wonders, Stellara. Originally I had to come into the office every 3 months to get the shot. The copay for most insurances isn’t cheap for a specialist… and when I mentioned this to her she told me that she really only needed to see me once a year for blood work and I could come and get the shot with a nurse to avoid the copay (as long as I promised to call if anything weird was going on). THEN after about a year of that, approved with my insurance me being able to give myself the shot at home. This way, I see her once a year and call her with any problems. Since changing insurances the new doctors I have met with want me to come in for the shot and see them every three months… which is really just a way to for them to make money in my eyes. I have had the same condition for going on 20 years and have been giving myself the Stellara shot at home for 2+ years… there is no reason I could see (that isnt monetary) for any dermatologist to see otherwise. I recently changed back to the previous insurance that Southern Derm accepts and I cant wait to make an appointment and make Laura my dermatologist again. As to office atmosphere- mostly adults… not really “kid friendly” when it comes to things to keep them busy (which doesn’t really affect me)… never have had to wait a long time…. easy parking…. and friendly nursing/ scheduling staff!*
I don’t think it can get any better than Southern Dermatology, the doctors, staff and many services offered are awesome. I have been going to Southern Dermatology for over 5 years. Dr Briley is my first and only attending dermatologist. Not knowing where to go and fairly new to NC, they were my first choice when I knew I probably had a skin cancer on my back. It was cancerous and I have had many treatments since for actinic keratosis, precancerous lesions. Because of the traveling distance I have attempted to find a good doctor who would be closer to no avail. I didn’t find anyone whom listened or would/could follow the treatment plan Dr Briley was following and I preferred given the alternatives. Long story shorter, I went back to Southern Dermatology and Dr Briley, never to stray again. I just don’t think there is any better place to go. The doctors, staff and service is awesome. Most of all, through out my continuing treatment, Dr Briley always lays out my options and I along with her input make the decision as to what treatment to pursue. That is not the case with most doctors.*
This is the best dermatologist in Raleigh! I’ve dealt with eczema my whole life and been to many practices in Raleigh and Durham and this practice is the best! They have helped me come up with a wonderful treatment plan and go the extra mile several times a week to accommodate me and my infant son when I come in for light treatment. Tracy is wonderful and the nurse staff is so great. I’d give them 10 stars if possible!*
I rate Southern Dermatology/ The Skin Renewal Center a 100! They are awesome, no waiting, EVER, awesome staff, the office is spotless, and Dr. Boyse IS AMAZING…..LOVE LOVE LOVE HER, I will NEVER go anywhere else. I drive 1 1/2 hours to see her and she is definitely worth the trip. I highly recommend her and The Skin Renewal Center.*
Great experience every time I go. Very caring and everyone seems to really care about your problems and want to truly help you solve them. Dr. Briley ROCKS!*
This is the best Dermatology practice in the Triangle. I have been going there off and on for years and cant say enough about their friendliness and professionalism. Great doctors, great staff.*
Dr. Briley was most helpful with offering several courses of treatments for my leg and hand issues. Her explanation for each option was helpful and insightful. Also, Jenny in the Skin Renewal Center was very personable and informative about a procedure on my hands.*
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.*
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.*
