What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel can remove blemishes and provide a smooth skin texture. Aesthetic needs and skin quality varies from person to person, so every skin peel is customized to meet the unique needs of the patient.

We offer chemical peels of light, medium and deep depth. You can choose from a number of peels such as:

  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel
  • Glycolic acid peel
  • Salicylic acid options from the Jan Marini’s Marini Peel System

Our skin care specialists will work with you to determine which treatment best suits your needs, lifestyle and skin type.

Issues Can a Chemical Peel Address

Our safe and effective chemical peel options are designed to address skin issues such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Sunspots
  • Rough or dry skin
  • Age spots
  • Acne

What to Expect from Your Chemical Peel

Chemical peels usually require between 30-45 minutes depending on the type of peel you need. During a typical chemical peel session:

  • A peel will be chosen that is best for your skin and particular condition
  • Your skin will be thoroughly cleaned
  • The peel will be applied
  • You may experience a brief stinging sensation before the solution is neutralized and rinsed off

Your treatment may need to be repeated to maintain your results.

Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?

The likelihood of chemical peel complications is very rare for most patients. If you are generally healthy, you are likely a good candidate for a chemical peel. It’s important to share your medical history with our specialists to ensure your candidacy.

Ideal candidates for chemical peels typically have superficial skin conditions, like minor blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles and other issues.

The best way to determine if a chemical peel is right for you is to visit our office and meet personally with a specialist. We will discuss your goals, assess your skin and explain all of your options.
