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.
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.*
Fantastic experience from start to finish. The office staff were simple delightful as soon as I walked in the door, and Dr. Laura Briley was friendly, knowledgeable, and got right down the business. My total appointment only took 15 minutes to get a few concerns examined and taken care of. I was able to be back at the office without going over my lunch-hour. I wish I had gone to see her years ago!
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.*
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.*
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.
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 had a wonderful experience. Dr. Briley was so professional and listened to my concerns. I did not have to wait long at all. I recommend Dr. Briley to anyone that has a skin problem.
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!*
Dr Briley has been the biggest help to our family. Run – do not walk – to these offices!!
