Chemical Peels

In order to melt away blemishes, scars, uneven skin pigmentation and other imperfections, a chemical solution known as a peel is applied to the face, wearing away the outer damaged skin layers to reveal a beautiful new complexion. Our Beverly Hills chemical peel procedure improves skin texture, skin tone, revives youthfulness and leaves the face feeling silky smooth.

How are chemical peels formulated?

Each peel is totally unique and is created specifically for your skin type. There are three types of treatments: those using alphahydroxy acids, those using trichloroacetic acids, and those using phenol. These proceed in potency from mild to very intense.

AHAs

This type of peel is the least invasive with the shortest downtime. Smooth, sparkling skin is achieved through contact with glycolic, lactic or fruit acids which target wrinkles, pigmentation issues and even dry skin. AHAs can also be used in combination with your daily skincare regimen for gorgeous, luxurious results. After the peel, it’s normal to experience some tingling, redness or irritation. These side effects quickly evaporate in most cases.

TCAs

These chemical peels represent the moderate or medium level of treatment, and are appropriate for combatting fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and uneven pigmentation. Recovery time is longer than with an AHA peel, but shorter than with a phenol peel. If deeper results are required, sometimes a patient can repeat the TCA peel, spreading out their downtime over several sessions and thus avoiding the more intense recovery of a phenol peel. It’s important to avoid contact with the sun after your TCA peel, in order to protect your newly forming skin layers from damage.

Phenol

This is the strongest type of chemical solution you can undergo. Its deep, penetrating forces are perfect for treating intractable facial wrinkles, sun damaged skin or pre-cancerous growths. Only an experienced skin care professional should apply a phenol peel, since it can scar if it is used in the wrong capacity. You’ll need to continuously protect the new skin from sun damage, wearing sunblock and most likely a sun hat as well.
