Chemical Peels Q & A

What Is a Chemical Peel?

Though the name sounds intimidating, chemical peels are generally not painful and have many benefits for your skin. A chemical peel works by using an acid solution to break down the glue that bonds your skin cells together, working them free from the surface and causing them to peel away. Though chemical peels are ideal for clients both young and old, they are especially good for older individuals as the skin’s natural shedding process slows as a person ages. Since no two persons’ skin is the same, we offer a variety of chemical peel solutions for our clients. These chemical peels can be applied during a medical facial or separately, and include these solutions:

  • Glycolic 30% (light)
  • Glycolic 40% (medium/strong)
  • Cojic 55 % (medium/strong)
  • PCA® Customized Chemical Peel (light)
  • PCA® Ultra Peel 1 and Forte(medium)
  • TCA 15% (medium)
  • Platinum Peel With TCA 20% (strong)
  • TCA 25% (strong)
  • Jassner 14% (strong)
  • VI peel (strong)

Our providers will assess your skin to determine which solution will be best for you. Stronger chemical peels are applied under the supervision of an M.D.

What Are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is very beneficial for the skin. These blends will smooth the surface and improve the texture of your skin, while also toning, firming, stimulating new cell growth, lightening, tightening and hydrating the skin. Chemical peel solutions also aid in the delivery of vitamins and nutrients, further optimizing the overall condition of your skin. You are a good candidate for a chemical peel if you suffer from one or more of these conditions:

  • Hyperpigmentation or pigment disorders (sun damage, age spots or melasma)
  • Smoker’s skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin tone and discoloration
  • Aging skin
  • Shallow acne scars
