Skin is the biggest organ in the human body. It also happens to be the most exposed, and that means it takes a beating day in and day out. Every time we step outside, we expose our skin to harmful ultraviolet rays, changes in climate, pollutants and other elements that do damage. They can give us sunspots, wrinkles and other blemishes that make us look older.
Luckily, we have a few biological processes working in our favor, and chemical peels give us the ability to use those processes to our advantage. We are constantly shedding our skin. In fact, we shed our entire skin about once a month, and as fast as we shed those cells, our body makes new ones to replace them.
Chemical peels can make you look younger again by eliminating the appearance of skin imperfections such as fine lines, sunspots, blemishes and acne scars.
Often when we develop imperfections such as sunspots or scars, they only affect the top few layers of skin. So logic tells us that removing those layers of skin will help remove those imperfections.
That’s where a chemical peel can help. It literally removes layers of skin so that newer, healthier skin cells can surface. In the process, blemishes and other imperfections are peeled away. Depending on the extent of the damage, one treatment might not completely eliminate imperfections, but it can make them much less obvious.
Bottom line: The purpose of a chemical peel is to erase imperfections and improve skin tone and texture by removing layers of damaged skin.
One thing to be aware of, is that not everyone has the same kind of skin. Genetics play a big part in the thickness, elasticity, oiliness and other factors affecting your skin. Plus some people are sensitive to different chemicals and processes. On top of that, over the years, you are subjected to different factors based on where you live and what you do.
Luckily, there are several types of chemical peels to suit different individual needs.
At Robert Nettles MD we always perform a thorough skin analysis before any of our treatments and will customize your peel to provide the best results for your skin type and condition.

How It Works
The chemical peel is a procedure that improves skin’s tone and texture. The REVEPEEL™is a medium-depth peel that contains four peeling acids in an oil-based delivery system. It is both effective and safe for Fitzpatrick skin types I to VI.
REVEPEEL™ is used for a variety of conditions including Acne Scars, Melasma, Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Severely Damaged Skin and can be used on the face and hands as well as other areas of the body.
There is not one ideal depth for a peel. The depth of the peel varies from patient to patient. At Robert Nettles MD we will first gather a thorough understanding of your skin's condition, type, thickness and the skin area being treated. We will learn your objectives for the treatment and your downtime availability before creating a peel perfect and unique for you.
Impressive results can be seen after a single REVEPEEL™ application. Many people benefit from having chemical peels performed at regular intervals.
REVEPEEL™ helps to improve the appearance of sun damaged skin as well as the appearance of fine lines, age spots and acne scars.
