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. Visit our gorgeous med spa in Beverly Hills for a customized chemical peel Beverly Hills patients love!
AHA Chemical Peel
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.
TCA Chemical Peel
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 Chemical Peel
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.

What are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are non-surgical, non-toxic, and can be combined with other effective anti-aging facial rejuvenation treatments. Everyone person’s skin is different, and chemical peels are unique in that they are fully customizable to suit skin type and treat existing flaws. Brown spots become less visible, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines reduced, and acne scars and other skin texture problems can be dramatically improved.
Smoother, Fresher, Glowing Facial Skin
All chemical peels work to create smoother, more youthful looking skin, without surgery or other invasive treatment. In addition, your newly rejuvenated skin will be more responsive to specialized treatments to help you maintain glowing skin and ward off the signs of aging. This non-surgical procedure is performed in our office using only topical anesthetic for a moderate to deep level chemical peel. We work to ensure your treatment experience is comfortable and discreet.
Chemical Peels: What Can I Expect?
Depending on the depth and intensity of the treatment, a chemical peel can result in brighter, more youthful skin in just a few short days.
A custom chemical peel treat and correct a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Sun damage
- Rough skin texture
- Crow’s feet
- Hyperpigmentation, sun spots
- Acne and acne scars
- Dry skin or oily skin
- Treat pre-cancerous skin issues
Using your skin type and desired results as a guide, Dr. Fisher and Milu, our talented Beverly Hills esthetician, will work with you to determine the chemical peel best suited for your skin type and the issues that need correction. A chemical peel works by exfoliating your facial skin to improve texture and tone, resulting in smoother, brighter, clearer skin. The face is the most common treatment zone, but the hands and neck can also be restored to a more youthful, fresh appearance with a chemical peel.
Some of our medical-grade peels produce a mild stinging sensation. Cold compresses or fans can soothe discomfort. Remaining redness, skin peeling, or irritation typically clears after a few days. The symptoms often reduce with repeated treatments. For more intense treatments, you may experience minor swelling or a sensation of tightness. Soothing ointment is applied, and Dr. Fisher will discuss the best methods of supporting your new glowing, luminous skin at home, including modifying your daily skincare routine. Avoid sun exposure after having a chemical peel.
Am I a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?
Some chemical peels are more effective on lighter skin tones, while others produce a dramatic improvement in texture and tone on darker skinned-patients. If you have facial skin problems, having a medical grade peel can take years off your appearance, leaving you with smoother, brighter, fresher skin, even in tone and texture, and freed from many of the unpleasant signs of aging.
Smoking can lengthen healing times and increase the risk of infection. If you are a smoker, a low intensity peel can be a great alternative. You may be at higher risk of problems if you have used the acne medication Accutane. It is important to talk to Dr. Fisher if you have ever taken Accutane, especially within the last year. Hyperpigmentation and melasma are related to hormone production, which can be affected by your birth control routine. Dr. Fisher will review birth control and other medications you may be taking prior to your first chemical peel treatment.
