If the surface layers of your skin are damaged, wrinkled or have discoloration, or even if you have superficial skin growths or acne, a chemical peel procedure performed by our experienced staff may be the choice for you. Depending on the severity of your skin issues, your skin type, your availability and your desired outcome, we’ll discuss which facial peel is right for you.
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.
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.
There is no anesthesia required, and the entire procedure takes no more than 15 minutes for the alphahydroxy acid and the tricholoracetic acid peels.
