A chemical peel is a solution that causes dead skin layers to slough and eventually peel away. This restores the skin’s surface, making it smoother, more radiant and significantly improves tone.
Chemical peels are generally performed on the face, but can also be utilized to improve skin features on your neck and hands. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can make your skin appear younger and softer. We use chemical peels from ZO Skinhealth and SkinMedica.

Q: What should I expect from my treatment?
Come to the office with a clean face, without any makeup. The chemical peel solution is applied directly to the facial skin and left on for a period of time. The chemical peel is carefully removed and skin is moisturized to help minimize side effects. A hand-held fan and ice water-soaked gauze are provided for increased comfort.
Q: What are the side effects?
Side effects can vary depending on the chemical peel formula. However, most patients can expect to see redness, peeling, and flaking. More aggressive chemical peels will lead to intense peeling and flaking for the first two weeks after the initial treatment. It’s important for patients to wear sunscreen and to stay out of the sun in the weeks after their peel.
Q: How soon will I see results?
Results can vary, depending on the strength of the chemical peel. For mild formulas, results can be seen as quickly as two to three weeks. Many people will return periodically for routine glycolic acid peels to maintain rejuvenated skin. For stronger, more aggressive formulas, patients may not see final results until four months after the initial treatment as the collagen remodels, though the brown spots tend to flake away after 1-2 weeks.
