Three major types of chemical peel solutions are commonly used:
- Alpha-hydroxy (glycolic acid)
- Beta Hydroxy (salicylic acid)
- TCA (Trichloracetic acid)
Chemical peels work by gently removing the top layer of exposed, damaged skin and revealing the fresh new skin underneath. By forcing the turnover of superficial cells, the old dull and damaged cells peel off much more quickly. Our dermatologists will evaluate your skin type and treatment goals to determine the formula that will meet your specific needs.
