About Chemical Peels

If you want to enhance your facial appearance, the quality of the skin is just as important as your facial contours. The combined effects of aging, environmental pollutants, acne breakouts, and sun exposure can lead to numerous skin concerns and textural irregularities, making your skin look flawed and tired. Our cosmetic providers perform highly personalized TCA chemical peels to slough away the uppermost layers of the skin, paving the way for smoother and more youthful skin underneath.

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are unique chemical formulations and skin care products that encourage the uppermost layers of the skin to peel off. The damaged epidermis of the skin gradually exfoliates and peels away, revealing smoother, softer, and more even-textured skin underneath. The chemical peel can also induce collagen production, which leads to firmer and tighter skin tissues with minimal fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels enhance your skin quality.

We use the TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peels to ensure optimal and dramatic results. TCA peels aggressively peel away the damaged epidermis of the skin, revealing fresher and more youthful skin underneath. They can also improve fine lines and discoloration. TCA peels are highly concentrated, and the peeling action takes about a week. We can perform chemical peels as a standalone procedure or with other facial procedures.

The benefits of chemical peels:

  • Non-invasive treatment — no injections or incisions
  • Can be combined with other facial procedures
  • Reveals smoother, softer, and healthier skin tissues
  • Improves overall skin complexion and quality
  • Causes minimal pain and discomfort
  • Minimal post-treatment downtime

  • Sunspots and age spots
  • Pigmentation problems
  • Skin discoloration
  • Textural irregularities
  • Rough and uneven skin

Side effects and recovery after chemical peels

Chemical peels usually cause some redness, skin crusting, stinging sensations, and peeling side effects. Depending on the intensity of the chemical peel, the side effects may last for a few days to a few weeks. Please apply SPF50 when you go outside, wear broad-brimmed hats, and avoid direct sunlight. The results will gradually improve over several weeks. Please follow your medical provider’s aftercare guidelines to ensure optimal recovery and results.
