What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical Peels are unique formulas that use specific types of acid (such as glycolic acid) to effectively remove the top layer of the dermis, where damage and aging symptoms are most obvious. The peel is a deeper treatment than a facial or microdermabrasion, so it’s a great option for patients with moderate skin issues like wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and more.

At Pittman Plastic Surgery, we use a gentle yet results-driven chemical peel solution to help you get the complexion you’ve always wanted. Our Chemical Peel includes:

  • SkinMedica Vitalize Chemical Peel
  • SkinMedica Rejuvenize Chemical Peel

Used to treat mild to moderate skin imperfections, these peels can help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and melasma, with minimal downtime. A series of 3 to 6 peels is recommended for the best results. Treatments take approximately 45 minutes to perform.

Candidates for Chemical Peel

You’re a good candidate for a Chemical Peel treatment if you have moderate complexion issues, such as:

  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne Scarring
  • Uneven Skin Tone and Texture
  • Enlarged Facial Pores

A typical chemical peel treatment takes about 45 minutes to perform. We recommend scheduling a chemical peel treatment every two months until you achieve your desired results.

Results include smoother, younger-looking skin; fewer wrinkles and fine lines; faded scarring and hyperpigmentation; and more.

Your skin may be red and tender for a few days after your Chemical Peel treatment. In some cases, peeling and flaking may occur for about a week. Afterwards you will see radiant, smooth, and younger-looking skin.
