Are you looking for ways to turn back the hands of time and restore your youthful appearance without surgery? If so, you may want to consider chemical peels. You’ll erase signs of aging and will improve your skin’s tone and texture. Isn’t it time you enjoyed a spotless, flawless complexion?

Chemical Peels Overview

A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to the skin on your face, neck, or hands. In minutes, the ingredients exfoliate your skin, lifting off the dead cells, and triggering your body’s natural healing process. New cells begin to multiply, collagen production increases with deeper peels, and hyaluronic acid is more abundant, restoring your skin to its optimal health and its youthful, radiant appearance. 

Chemical Peels Applications

Chemical peels enhance the tone and texture of the skin, and also reduce wrinkles and fine lines under the eyes and around your mouth. The treatment addresses pigment concerns and may improve the appearance of age spots, sun spots, freckles, dark patches, melasma, mild scars, and some acne scars. You’ll be amazed at how much better your skin looks and feels. 

Types of Chemical Peels

The three main types of chemical peels are superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. 

Superficial Peels, also known as lunchtime peels, are the gentlest of the three. They involve using a mild acidic mixture (think matic acid, salicylic acid, fruit enzymes) to penetrate only the outer layer of the skin, gently exfoliating it, rejuvenating it, smoothing it out, and reducing slight discolorations. You will be able to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment. You may notice a pinkish, flushed tone, and your skin will feel soft and refreshed. The superficial peels that DS offers include LitePeel by Epionce, and Signature Facelift Peel by Image.  

Medium depth peels involve applying trichloroacetic acid (TCA), glycolic acid (AHA), or retinol, to the skin to smooth out moderate wrinkling, creasing, and discoloration. The acid penetrates the outer and middle layers of your skin, removing the dull, damaged skin, and revealing a new, smooth layer of skin. This treatment is used to correct age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation, and also improves the texture and tone of your skin. Medium peels deliver more dramatic results than superficial chemical peels and can be used to treat any area of the body. Examples of these peels offered at Dermatology Specialists include: Perfection Lift by Image, WrinkleLift and Acne Lift, all by Image, and VI Peel. 

Deep peels involve the application of trichloroacetic acid or phenol to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin, which results in skin regeneration from deep within. The treatment eliminates visible lines, age spots, along with freckles and acne scars. The results you will see with a deep chemical peel are remarkable, and the improvements can last up to 10 years. Recovery from a deep chemical peel may take several weeks, and it is important that you use your prescribed moisturizer and stay out of the sun while your skin heals. We offer Jessner’s and TCA peels, in addition to the lasers at Dermatology Specialists, which achieve the same or better results as deep peels, with faster healing, better control, and safety.
