A chemical peel is a treatment in which an acid solution is used to remove damaged outer layers of the skin. In performing chemical peels, our qualified providers apply alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to the skin. These acids can vary in strength and depth of penetration to ensure each patient is receiving an optimal treatment. A series of peel applications is recommend to achieve maximum results.
Chemical peels are typically applied to the face, but it is common practice to apply to the neck, chest, hands or others areas of the skin. One of the biggest concerns most people have is maintaining a great physical appearance. Our peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure. It is an effective treatment for blemishes, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture and pigmentation.
The ideal candidate for a chemical peel is in good physical health, understands the procedure and the post-peel recovery process. It is imperative to avoid sun exposure both before treatment and during recovery period. Since chemical peels vary in acid type and strength, please consult with our skin care expert to determine which chemical peel is best for you. It is common to experience peeling and flaking of the skin after application, as this is the skin’s way of exfoliating off the damage so new skin cells can grow and rejuvenate.
