Chemical Peels

Chemical peels offer a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery that can be performed as a simple outpatient procedure. Some people schedule an annual peel, while others incorporate monthly chemical peels as part of their normal skin rejuvenation regimen.

What to Expect

Whether the result of environmental damage, hereditary factors or simply the act of aging, our skin can easily develop unwanted lines, rough texture, blemishes and uneven pigmentation. Chemical peels use an exfoliating solution that causes damaged or dead skin to fall away. Most commonly used on the face, chemical peels can also be applied to the arms, hands, legs, face, neck and chest.

Our chemical peels are available in three different strengths to suit your needs:

N

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA): The mildest chemical peel

N

Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA): A medium strength chemical peel using Obagi Blue Peel®

N

Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA): Our strongest chemical peel

Your Treatment Appointment

Prior to your chemical peel, you will have a brief consultation with our trained aesthetician. During your consultation, you can discuss your skin concerns and goals. Our aesthetician will determine which level of strength to use in your peel, and may recommend combining your chemical peel with laser treatments for more comprehensive results.

Your consultation is also a good time to discuss any other appearance concerns you may have. Deeper wrinkles in the skin are often a result of the loss of facial volume, and cannot be improved with chemical peels. To address deep creases like laugh lines, you may wish to consider dermal fillers.

Recovery &
Results

Depending on the strength of your peel and whether you combine it with any additional procedures, your appointment can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Lighter strength chemical peels usually require no downtime, while stronger peels may require that you take several days away from work.

While some patients simply get a chemical peel once or twice a year as part of their skin maintenance, others undergo a series of chemical peels.
