Chemical Peels

Chemical peels vary in depth and active ingredients. There are very aggressive peels and more superficial peels, and the type of peel you have depends on your skin care needs and goals. When applied to the skin, chemical peels stimulate rapid skin cell turnover by destroying the outer layer of skin. This prompts the top layer of skin to peel in sheets or slough off, depending on the type of peel used.

Different chemical peels target different skin conditions. However, chemical peels in general help correct the following skin conditions and complaints:

  • Acne and oily skin
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage

Our practice offers a variety of chemical peels for different skin types, skin tones, and skin health goals.

  • Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel: At Skin By Lovely, we believe that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, so we feel it’s important to note that this treatment will not bleach or change your natural skin tone. The word “depigmentation” in this peel simply refers to evening out patches of discoloration or hyperpigmentation on your skin. The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel combines azelaic acid with kojic acid to achieve a brightening effect. You will receive an in-office treatment first and then follow up with two weeks of at-home care to fade blemishes, lighten discoloration and balance oil production.
  • VI Peel: The VI Peel is one of the gentlest, most effective treatments we offer. It combines trichloroacetic acid, or TCA, with Retin-A, vitamin C and salicylic acid to provide comfortable total skin rejuvenation with no downtime. Not only can it offer immediate improvements in hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and wrinkles, but it can also boost your body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for giving your skin a youthful glow, and gradually increases for a short period after treatment. This means you’ll continue to see improvements in the tone and texture of your skin well after completing the treatment.

Following a chemical peel treatment, you are advised to avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen. You should never peel or pull on peeling skin, as this can cause more skin damage and scarring to the healthy skin beneath. Repeated treatments are recommended to improve and maintain results.
