Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center offers several types of peels to the residents of Pasadena, CA. We also service Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Rigor may recommend acne peels, chemical peels or melanage peels to correct your skin conditions. Acne peels help eliminate acne by helping your skin shed dead skins cells more effectively. Chemical peels are performed using three levels – light, medium and deep. These peels address several skin problems, including fine lines, wrinkles, creases, sun damage, scars and some pre-cancerous growths. Melanage peels correct the effects of melasma, a condition that causes patches of hyperpigmentation, or dark patches, on the face.
How do I know what peel is right for me?
Dr. Rigor works closely with his patients in Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA. During your consultation appointment, he evaluates your skin and develops an individual treatment plan. The treatment plan includes the type and frequency of the peel.
Are the results of the peels long-lasting?
The longevity of the results depends on the type of peel you receive. Acne peels and light chemical peels may be repeated every month. Medium chemical peels may be repeated every six to 12 months, and deep chemical peels last for up to 10 years. In many cases, patients who undergo melanage peels only have to continue at-home treatments.
