Almost anyone can benefit from a chemical peel. Peels can dramatically improve the health and appearance of your skin. Chemical peels safely treat sun-damaged skin, acne, hyperpigmentation, mild rosacea, oily skin, wrinkles, fine lines around the eyes and mouth, mild scarring, and dark patches from pregnancy (melasma). A general rule of thumb: The deeper the peel, the more significant the results but the longer the recovery time. We offer an array of chemical peels depending on your skin type. 45 min.
- Superficial: Removes the outermost layer of skin and can be done two weeks apart.
- Medium-depth: Removes skin cells deeper into the epidermis and can be done four weeks apart.
- Deep: Removes skin cells from the epidermis and parts of the top, mid and lower layer of the dermis. You will experience greater discomfort and longer healing time.
Special considerations: Three to four days before the peel, patients should stop using all topical retinoids (Retin-A, Differin, Aczone, etc.). Peels are not recommended if you have taken Accutane in the past 12 months, have received chemotherapy or radiation therapy or are pregnant or lactating. Please contact our office with any questions about chemical peels.
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid)
AHAs are acids derived from natural sources such as sugar cane (glycolic), lactic (milk), malic (apple), mandelic (almond), etc. AHAs are the mildest peel, which makes them a great option for those with sensitive skin or first-time peel patients. AHAs are used to treat fine wrinkles, dryness, uneven skin tone and acne.
BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid)
BHAs are best known to treat acne-prone skin. They control oil production and loosen dead skin cells. Salicylic acid, the most popular BHA, is produced by plants and penetrates deeply into pores to dissolve impurities.
Modified Jessner's Peel
A combination of salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol, a mild antiseptic and disinfectant. These light to medium depth peels are more potent than AHA and BHA peels, and are a great option for acne and acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and collagen stimulation.
TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid)
TCA peels are for those looking for a higher-level peel with more advanced results. These peels are effective for improving wrinkles, brown spots, higher grade acne and acne scarring.
