WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is a facial treatment that uses exfoliating solutions to remove old or damaged skin cells to reveal healthier, smoother skin. This skincare therapy is often great for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. A single treatment can help to refresh your skin for a weekend event, or routine sessions can be performed for long-term maintenance. At Arizona Skin Institute, skilled dermatologist Dr. Jay Mehta is pleased to offer an extensive collection of chemical peels to local men and women who wish to rejuvenate their appearance. If you live in Surprise or Phoenix, AZ, give our office a call to learn more about chemical peels and how they can help you reach your cosmetic goals.
TYPES OF CHEMICAL PEELS
At Arizona Skin Institute, we offer a wide variety of chemical peels in different levels of strength (light, medium, and deep) to meet our patients’ skincare needs and goals. Most of these peels contain glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids, so it’s important to let our team know if you have any allergies or if you’ve experienced harsh reactions to any of these chemicals in the past. Additionally, since these solutions will cause the skin to peel, some downtime is associated with this treatment. Patients can choose from the following:
- Jan Marini peels
- VI Peels
- Jessner peels
- TCA peels
During your initial consultation, Dr. Mehta can talk about the differences between each peel and which one he thinks may be best for your unique concerns and skincare goals.
IS A CHEMICAL PEEL RIGHT FOR ME?
A chemical peel is often a great option for people who want to boost the overall health, look, and feel of their skin and is an ideal therapy for those who struggle with rough skin texture, discoloration, acne scarring, sun damage, brown spots, and fine lines. During your first visit, Dr Mehta will perform a thorough skin exam and provide his recommendation on which chemical peel he thinks is most suitable for your goals.
CHEMICAL PEEL TREATMENT
A chemical peel is a simple treatment that we perform at our office in Surprise, AZ. On the day of your appointment, we’ll ask that you arrive wearing no makeup. To start, we’ll clean your skin to remove any cosmetics, dirt, and oils. Then, we’ll gently apply the selected solution to your skin. After a few minutes, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients should avoid extended periods of direct sunlight for at least a few days to protect their newly treated skin. Over the next few days, your skin will peel off and reveal a smoother, softer complexion.
