Chemical peels use chemical solutions to remove damaged outer layers of the skin in order to help reduce acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation and age spots. Some of the solutions used include trichloroacetic acid (TCA), alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s), beta hydroxy acids (BHA’s) and messenger enzymes.
Depending on the peel performed, some down time may be needed, typically ranging from three to seven days. Results depend on the individual. We normally recommend two to six treatments, spaced approximately one to four weeks apart. Some chemical peels may be done in conjunction with a facial or as an individual treatment.
