What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel uses pharmaceutical-grade agents, usually acids, to exfoliate the skin in a controlled way. Depending on the peel, it may contain TCA, alpha and beta hydroxy acids, lactic acid or a combination of these.
The purpose of a chemical peel is to improve the skin’s appearance by removing layers of damaged skin. After a series of peels healthy new skin cells rise to the surface, revealing a vibrant, smooth and youthful complexion.
Each chemical peel treatment uses medical-grade skincare products from Skinceuticals and Vivier. It’s safe for all skin types and is customized based on each patient’s skin concerns.

Normally 3-5 chemical peels are recommended for treating a specific skin condition such as skin aging, acne scarring or hyperpigmentation. One session may suffice to reveal a healthy glow and fresher appearance.
Depending on the peel, it’s normal to experience some mild tingling, itching and warming sensations. Once the peel is neutralized, any discomfort usually subsides within a few minutes.
Depending on the strength of the peel, the expected downtime can be anywhere from 1-3 days. During this time, patients may experience tightness, redness, itchiness and skin peeling.
Some results will be visible right away, such as smoother texture and tighter pores. Reduction in pigment, wrinkles and acne scars can take several weeks to months to become noticeable.
A chemical peel is a solution that’s applied to the skin’s surface, causing a rapid ablation, or removal, of the top epidermal layers. Microneedling, on the other hand, is a non-ablative procedure that’s designed to stimulate collagen by deploying tiny needles into the dermis. Both procedures can help with scarring, pigmentation and skin texture.
