Patients who are interested in chemical skin peel treatment are encouraged to take the time to learn more about how this particular dermatological treatment works. Many patients who hear of chemical peels are unsure about undergoing these procedures as they may believe they are unsafe or not nearly as effective as other methods. However, chemical peels are a wonderful alternative to other skin care treatments and may be the best solution for patients who are struggling with:
- Uneven skin tone
- Poor skin texture
- Aging skin (fine lines and wrinkles)

Our dermatologists can educate patients on ways to improve their skin with the use of chemical peels. Chemical peels use a variety of chemicals to provide either a mild, lighter peels or a more aggressive, deeper peel, depending on the needs of the patient. Here are just a few of the most common types of peels available through our practice:
- Glycolic acid (light peel)
- Salicylic acid (light peel)
- Mandelic acid (light peel)
- Melanage peel (light peel)
- Retinoic acid (medium peel)
- Resorcinol acid (medium peel)
- Trichloroacetic acid (deep peel)
A consultation appointment is the best way to learn about each of these peels and which one is most appropriate for one’s specific skin care needs and concerns. Patients are urged to speak with a quality dermatologist who can break down the benefits of each to guide patients to the skin peel right for them.
