Uncovering a pristine new layer of luminous skin

A peel can be used on the face, neck, or hands to banish blemishes and jump-start your self-confidence. While our bodies naturally discard compromised skin cells over time, a chemical peel simply speeds up this process of renewal. Sessions usually last around 45 to 60 minutes and exfoliation takes place over the course of 2 to 5 days, depending on the strength of the peel.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Chemical peels are formulated as mild, medium, or deep, with your exact treatment being customized to address your unique cosmetic concerns. Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons and highly trained skincare practitioners will conduct a thorough evaluation of your complexion to determine the best course of action for revolutionizing your skin and delivering a more youthful, radiant countenance. 

TCA Peel

A TCA peel is made with trichloroacetic acid and is used to non-invasively improve discoloration, clear away dead skin cells, treat scarring, and minimize wrinkles and lines. A TCA peel will work to regenerate healthy skin by renewing cellular growth. Treatment takes around 30 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities afterward, provided they protect their skin from the sun.

VI Peel

The VI Peel addresses aesthetic concerns such as acne and acne scarring, melasma, sun damage, wrinkles and lines, and more. It is among the most often performed chemical peels, thanks to the fact that nearly all patients can tolerate the treatment regardless of their skin type. The peel is typically formulated with a combination of salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, tretinoin, phenol, and vitamin C. With the VI Peel, patients may need to undergo several sessions in order to see comprehensive changes.

Recovery

The recovery time after a chemical peel will depend on its formulation and whether it was mild, medium, or deep. The skin may feel tight and tingly after treatment, similar to what a sunburn feels like. As the skin slowly exfoliates over the next 3 to 5 days, it’s important that you avoid picking at it, scratching, or rubbing it.

You will need to use the proper skincare products to cleanse, hydrate, and protect your skin. We can make custom recommendations for you as part of your detailed aftercare plan. Rest assured we will follow up with you regularly to make sure your healing is on track and that you’re happy with your results.

Results

Mild peels can be effective in correcting superficial signs of aging and sun damage, while medium peels can help reduce deeper folds and creases. A deep peel will significantly resurface the skin, with exfoliation results lasting for years to come.

Candidacy

Chemical peels are an excellent option for anyone looking to non-surgically improve their skin texture and rejuvenate their overall complexion. These treatments tend to work best for healthy non-smokers with realistic expectations. Note that the procedure is contraindicated for those who:

  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Have an active skin infection or disease
  • Have a herpes outbreak
  • Have used Accutane® within the last year
  • Recently underwent chemotherapy or radiation
  • Are allergic to aspirin
  • Suffer from an autoimmune condition

FAQ

Does having a chemical peel hurt?

A chemical peel is not considered painful, but it may cause a slight stinging sensation. Minor redness or irritation may occur as the new, improved layer of skin emerges. We will formulate your peel according to your comfort levels, lifestyle, and cosmetic needs. A mild chemical peel doesn’t require downtime, and you’ll be able to return quickly to your regular schedule without discomfort.

How many chemical peels do you need?

Most patients need to undergo more than one peel in order to achieve their skin goals. It’s common for patients to undergo several milder peels rather than have a deep peel, since this can help them avoid a longer downtime.
