Chemical peels are exactly what they sound like: using chemicals to let outer layers of skin shed. That might sound a little scary, but once you’ve done some research and know the facts, you learn that chemical peels are a great option for getting healthy, beautiful skin.
Sarah Woesh, Theraderm user and marketing project manager, recently received her first chemical peel in preparation for a friend’s wedding. While the peel turned out to be a really great experience for Sarah, she had some concerns going into it.
“Having never received a chemical peel, I really didn’t know what to expect,” Sarah said. “You hear either one of those words and they sound a bit harsh. I was worried about what my skin would look like afterwards and if I would be able to go back to work and look normal.”
After speaking with Dr. Beckman about her concerns, Sarah realized there really wasn’t much to be afraid of.
“I went in the assurance and calm that Dr. B exhibited and assured me of, and that helped a lot! He was constantly checking in with me to make sure I was feeling ok and that the chemicals weren’t too much for me,” Sarah said. “His pre-consultation calmed any nerves I had and really made me excited about not only the peel, but about my skin health in general.”
