Chemical peels are topically applied formulas that revitalize the skin’s surface by creating a controlled shedding of the outer most layer of the skin. This allows new layers to be exposed, creating a fresh appearance and smoother texture to the skin surface. During your initial consultation with one of our Medical Spa aestheticians, you’ll want to explain the level of skin improvement you hope to achieve. Together we can discuss the advantages of chemical peels and determine the proper peel for your skin conditions and cosmetic goals. A chemical peel can improve sun damage, acne scarring, blotchy pigmentation, fine wrinkling and early pre-cancerous skin lesions. A peel can also improve acne-prone skin and clogged pores.
Light Exfoliating Peels
Light peels are great for those patients new to chemical peels. We provide lactic, glycolic and salicylic peels. During your consultation, the appropriate peel will be determined for your particular skin conditions and concerns. For maximum results, light peels should be done every two weeks in a series of six treatments. These peels can improve mild to moderate cases of acne, soften the look of fine lines and even out skin texture. Patients can expect minimal to no downtime.
Modified Jessner’s Peels
The Modified Jessner’s Peel is blend of salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinal. Resorcinal allows acids to penetrate evenly and deeper for better results. This peel is great for reducing acne, and can also be beneficial in diminishing the appearance of sun damage and decreasing the appearance of fine lines. Patients may experience some peeling and flaking within three to five days.
The TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) peel results in a deeper depth of peeling. We offer 10 percent, 15 percent and 20 percent TCA peels. This peel is great for improving skin texture, superficial blemishes and pigmentation problems. TCA is used on the face and other areas of the body, such as the hands, forearms and chest. Patients can expect three to seven days of downtime.
