Chemical Peels

We specialize in clinical facials to treat many skin concerns and conditions while focusing on anti-aging factors. We use only physician exclusive products to meet your skin’s needs!

What are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking.

Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and scars — typically on the face. A chemical peel can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures.

Chemical peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical solution. Deeper chemical peels produce more-dramatic results, but also involve longer recovery times.

Natural beauty is most visible in our skin and that is why we strive to bring the most customized and effective skin care products and treatments to you. We offer a variety of chemical peels that help improve the visible signs of skin imperfections that include: dull, lackluster skin, uneven tone and texture, lines and wrinkles, loss of radiance, roughness, surface irregularities and acne or acne scars. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin and the results are phenomenal.

We also carry top of the line skin care products and we take pride in bringing you the most customized and effective skin care regimens that suit each individual need. Our skin care consultations are provided by experienced estheticians who will evaluate your skin and recommend products and/or treatments that best address your skin care needs. Our product line includes a range of brands to customize to your skin.

How Do You Prepare for a Chemical Peel?

Before you have a chemical peel, we will:

Review your medical history. Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions — especially any heart, kidney or liver conditions if you’re considering a deep chemical peel. Tell your doctor about any medications you’re taking or have taken recently — particularly those that might make your skin sensitive to the sun — as well as any cosmetic procedures you’ve had in the past. Be sure to tell your doctor if you’ve been using a retinoid cream such as tretinoin (Renova, Retin-A, others), which can enhance the penetration of some chemical peels.

Do a physical exam. We will inspect your skin and the area to be treated. This will help us determine what type of chemical peel you might benefit from most and how your physical features — for example, the tone and thickness of your skin — might affect your results.

Discuss your expectations.Talk with our office about your motivations and expectations, as well as the potential risks. Make sure you understand how many treatments you might need, how long it will take to heal and what your results might be.

Financing Options Available

In general, insurance doesn’t cover the cost of CoolSculpting® or other cosmetic procedures because these treatments are elective. It’s best to check with your insurance provider to determine if either of these will be covered by your private insurance. GreensSky and CareCredit provide you with flexible and convenient financing options for your treatment plans.
