What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a skin care technique that is used to improve the texture of the skin, treat fine lines, and improve scarring. Chemical peels remove the outer layer of the skin, typically on the face or neck. The Skincare and Laser Center offers a wide range of chemical peels to meet the needs of all skin types. A consultation appointment with one of our estheticians can help determine which peel would best suit you.

Types of Chemical Peels

Neostrata ProSystem is a highly effective superficial peeling system. This system offers four concentrations of 100% free-acid Glycolic Acid Peels. These brief in-office peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin clarity, dark spots, mild to moderate acne, superficial acne scarring, pseudofolliculitis, and keratosis pilaris.

Theraderm Clarifying Peel is the well-known original Jessner’s solution which contains salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol. This acid combination helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and large pores while helping to balance excessively oily skin. You will see effective, visible changes in as little as one treatment with very little downtime.

Perfect Derma Peel by Bella Medical provides superior results for aging skin, acne, melasma, hyperpigmentation and many common skin concerns. It is also virtually painless with moderate downtime. The Perfect Peel’s unique blend of acids and antioxidants makes it one of the most advanced, effective medical grade peels available in today’s market.

Obagi Blue Peel is a TCA peel that targets fine lines, shallow scars, melasma and sun damage. This medically supervised peel requires a six to twelve-week prep period prior.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a much lighter version of the Blue Peel designed for mild sun damage, the early signs of skin aging, and acne. This is a great “starter peel” for patients who want results with little to no downtime.

SkinMedica Peels are a full range of clinically tested peels that can help your complexion appear more uniform and renewed by diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. SkinMedica Peels include:

  • Illuminize Peel – helps provide vibrant, radiant looking skin with no downtime. This peel is appropriate for mild skin imperfections and gives a great result when coupled with a microdermabrasion treatment.
  • Vitalize Peel – designed to smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. You will experience noticeable results after just one peel and compelling results after three to six peels. The Vitalize Peel is perfect for mild to moderate skin conditions with little downtime.
  • Rejuvenize Peel – the strongest of the three SkinMedica peels and designed for moderate to severe skin imperfections. As with the Vitalize peel, you will experience noticeable results after just one peel and compelling results after three to six peels with little downtime.
