We offer a variety of skin peels to help you reveal a fresher complexion. These treatments can be effective for improving the appearance of fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes, and pigmentation problems. One or more peels may be recommended, depending on your needs. A custom peel will be blended for you by one of our experienced aesthetician or our plastic surgeon.
Chemical peels can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven pigmentation
- Shallow acne scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
However, sags, bulges, and more severe wrinkles do not respond to peeling and may require other kinds of cosmetic surgical procedures.
What are the types of chemical peels?
Custom Chemical Peel
PCA and SkinCeuticals peels which are blends of well-tolerated, safe and effective acids that are not timed, neutralized or removed from the skin. Instead they are self-neutralizing and left on the skin. This peel is designed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin texture and improve acne scarring and mild sun damage. Our peels are customized to suit your skin’s specific needs. All skin types can benefit from these universal peels. They can be done on the face and on other parts of the body. This superficial peel may also be used to prepare the skin for a deeper peel. This peel is best done in a series of treatments for optimal results.

The TCA Peel
The TCA peel is used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and long-term sun damage. This peel is a more in-depth treatment designed to remove layers of aged and damaged skin while improving the skin’s appearance. The TCA peel can be very effective in a series of treatments. Chemical peels are sometimes done with dermabrasion or laser resurfacing for a more dramatic overall effect.

Dermaplaning is a technique that uses a blade to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair “peach fuzz” polishing the surface. Skin texture will be smoother and softer. Dermaplaning can be performed alone or combined with a chemical peel for maximum results. It is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.

How do chemical peels work?
Chemical Peels involve the use of a chemical solution, such as glycolic acid, to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin. Your provider will choose a solution and concentration based on your skin and the desired effects. Most peels involve very little discomfort or downtime. However, you and your provider may decide to pursue more aggressive and deeper peels for more dramatic results. Glycolic acid peels are an important part of skin rejuvenation regimens, in combination with sun protection and appropriate skin care products such as medical grade retinol or Retin-A products.
The results of a chemical peel depend in part on the depth of the peel. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which results in a superficial separation and resultant peeling, followed by new skin generation over the next 3-7 days. This procedure destroys parts of the skin in a controlled way so that new skin can grow in its place. The new skin is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin, and may also be more even in color.
Today, with the public’s increasing interest in rejuvenating the skin and slowing the appearance of aging, chemical peeling has emerged as an exciting treatment option. Results of chemical peels may also be enhanced by our laser or microneedling treatments.
