A chemical peel is a chemical solution used to exfoliate the skin on your face, neck or hands. Chemical peels remove the dead and damaged skin layers to reveal the smoother, less wrinkled skin below. This non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment can be used to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin and can help correct sun damage and discoloration. Dermal Solutions offers a variety of chemical peels that can be used on a wide range of skin types and to treat most skin concerns.

Is a Chemical Peel the right choice for me?
Men and women who are interested in improving the tone and texture of their skin, reducing sun damage and some forms of scarring, and improving the visible signs of age are potential candidates for this aesthetic treatment. Prior to your treatment session, a member of our team will review your skin type and discuss your skin concerns and goals for treatment with you to determine which of our chemical peels may be the right choice for you. Chemical Peels provide best results to light-haired and fair-skinned individuals and may not be as effective in patients with darker skin tones.
Before a Chemical Peel:
- Discuss any health conditions with your physician
- Stop smoking at least six weeks before treatment
- Avoid aspirin
What should I expect after a chemical peel?
Your skin will temporarily be more sensitive to the sun after a chemical peel. Broad-spectrum sunscreen above SPF 30 should be applied to the treated area every day following your treatment session. Your time in the sun should be very limited as the new skin is sensitive. Chemical peels always require follow-up care. Your recovery period following a chemical peel can be anywhere from no downtime to eight weeks, depending on the peel used.

Is there any discomfort associated with chemical peels?
Chemical peels are a great option for patients who wish for a rather painless way to achieve their skin goals. The amount of discomfort depends on the strength of the peel used. Chemical peels can cause temporary stinging, redness, irritation, and swelling.
