If the surface layers of your skin are damaged, wrinkled or have discoloration, or even if you have skin growths or acne facial scars, a chemical peel procedure performed by our experienced staff may be the right choice for you.
Depending on the severity of your skin issues, your skin type, your availability and your desired outcome, we'll discuss using chemical solutions:
- Trichloroacetic acid – best for peels of a medium depth, this takes care of finer wrinkles and blemishes. There is a minimum recovery time from a trichloroacetic acid peel. You'll see your new, healthier skin in about a week.
- Alphahydroxy acid – this is our lightest and most popular chemical peel, as it requires no recovery time. This treatment needs to be done more frequently to achieve the same results as the stronger peels. Typically, the results are apparent after a day of some flaking or redness of the skin.
The entire procedure takes no more than 15 minutes for the alphahydroxy and the tricholoracetic peels.
