What is a Chemical Peel?

 

Chemical Peels are one of the oldest ways to rejuvenate your skin and give you a more youthful appearance and a popular spa treatment. They’re often used by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons and for microdermabrasion and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even scars.

 

There are several varieties of chemical peels, with TCA Peels and Glycolic being the most popular and effective types of treatments. A chemical peel can be a serious procedure and is recommended for correcting major flaws and skin imperfections. The procedure does exactly what its name describes, exfoliating the top layer of cells.

Types of Chemical Peels 

 

Salicylic Acid Peel – Acne Treatment

 

Salicylic acid is a mild acid acne treatment available in over-the-counter products only at a concentration of 2%.  It works as a keratolytic agent, which means, it encourages the sloughing of dead skin cells. When performed by professionals the concentration of the acid is higher, making it a more effective, yet still very safe treatment not only for mild acne, but also for oily or sun-damaged skin and post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation (extra pigment that can leave your skin darker in certain areas).

 

Glycolic Acid Peel

 

This is a another type of chemical peel, but less aggressive.  It works similarly to clear pores in acne prone patients and has been referred to as a “lunch time” peel since the downtime afterwards is quite minimal.

 

Trichloroacetic Acid  or TCA Peel

 

Trichloroacetic Acid is one of the deeper, more aggressive chemical treatments used to correct significant skin flaws. Benefits to the skin are numerous, among them – tightening and firming facial skin leaving you with a younger more attractive complexion is just the starting point.

 

After TCA facial peels are completed, the reproduction of collagen is also increased immensely – continuing to build a more beautiful complexion for any patient.  The new surface of the skin becomes clear and smooth.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Please note the following updates from our practice:

-We already follow strict infection control protocols in our clinic that keep our facilities safe for all patients, and we are continuing to follow these best practices.

-In addition, we have implemented a special COVID-19 preparedness plan and have asked any employees who are feeling sick to remain at home until they are better.

As a patient, you can help us protect the health and well-being of our patients and our community by following these guidelines:

•If you have a fever or are experiencing symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever or difficulty breathing),or history of travel to areas experiencing transmission of COVID-19 or contact with possible COVID-19 patients, please call our office to cancel your appointment.  When you are completely well or had a waiting period, we will do our best to reschedule any cancellations from this time period as soon as possible.

•Plan to come to your scheduled appointment alone, so that there aren't any extra unnecessary people in the office at one time. If you are a new patient, please refer to our website and download the necessary paperwork. If you do not have this information prepared, this could delay your appointment or you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

•If you have a face mask or face covering, we strongly recommend wearing it as an added precaution.  Our clinical staff will all be wearing masks.

•When you arrive, please read the instructions on the front door. Then check in at the front desk. At that time, our staff will instruct you regarding check in procedures.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us keep all our patients and staff safe and healthy during this time.
