Professionally applied peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of monthly treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and make dull complexions glow.

Peels are safe for all skin types, and our practitioners at Avissa Skin are trained to identify what treatment combination is safe for each person’s skin in order for patients to reap the greatest benefits. Professional peels are increasingly effective with pre- and post-treatment care, balancing your skin before the peel and nurturing it after the treatment.

Here at Avissa skin we offer a wide selection of chemical peels, with varying intensities and formulas tailored to suit your needs. All peels are not created equal! Chemical Peels are available in several different strengths using the award-winning ViPeel, PCA Skin Chemical Peels, ZO Skin Health and Glytone professional product lines.

TCA Peel with Vitamin A
This chemical peel exfoliates the skin and helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. A TCA peel with Vitamin A penetrates the skin deeper than glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acid peels and works to refine and rejuvenate the skin.

Melasma Peel
This chemical peel can treat melasma by effectively removing the outer layer of skin, which contains the excess pigmentation. New skin will be formed as a result, looking clearer and free of any unnecessary pigmentation.

Salicylic Acid Peel
Salicylic acid peels improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. This chemical peel is an ideal treatment for patients with sensitive, dry, oily, or acne prone skin. Salicylic acid peels are rich in antioxidants and have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that help treat acne prone skin. This peel provides the pores with a deep cleansing and kills bacteria that can cause acne. Patients who get salicylic acid peels experience an improvement in the tone and texture of their skin, reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improvement in acne inflammation.

Glycolic Acid Peel
Glycolic acid peels are a popular treatment used to reduce the appearance of acne and wrinkles and brighten and tone the skin. This chemical peel removes the top layer of the skin to reveal the healthy, undamaged skin below. Glycolic acid peels result in brighter, radiant, younger-looking skin.

Lactic Acid Peel
A lactic acid peel is derived from milk and is a very mild chemical peel with very little risk of adverse reaction. This chemical peel works to exfoliate the skin and provide the pores with a deep cleansing. We recommend this peel to patients with mature, oily, or acne prone skin. Lactic acid peels can even skin tone and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, as well as improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help the skin maintain optimum pH levels.

Mandelic Acid Peel
Mandelic acid peels are milder than our other peels and are used to exfoliate and even out the skin. We typically recommend this chemical peel to patients with sensitive skin or patients who have never had as it contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and does not penetrate the skin as deeply as other chemical peels. This chemical peel can correct the effects of sun damage, treat blackheads, improve the appearance and fine lines, and reduce the appearance of dark spots.

Jessner Peel with Vitamin A
A Jessner peel with Vitamin A is a good choice for patients looking for a complete facial rejuvenation. This is possibly the most versatile chemical peel we offer, it helps reduce the visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of dark spots, and helps balance oily skin. We recommend this peel to patients with skin conditions like acne and melasma, and those looking to combat the visible effects of age.

Vitamin A Peel
We recommend our Vitamin A peel for patients with congested, acne-prone, or oily skin or for patients looking to reduce the enlarged pores and improve skin tone and texture.

CHEMICAL PEEL FAQs

What is a peel and how does it benefit my skin?
A peel is the process of applying a solution to the treatment area for a few minutes, and then neutralizing it with a solution. You may experience a tingling sensation, slight stinging and mild redness that may last for several minutes. The immediate result is softer, smoother skin. A series of peels, used over weeks or months, along with a daily skin care regimen, sloughs away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, healthier looking skin.

How soon will I notice results? How long does the program last?
You will feel an improvement in the softness of your skin in as little as 1 week. As the treatment progresses, you will notice a difference in the overall appearance of your skin. The peel program generally consists of a series of peels given every 2-4 weeks. The length of the program and frequency of visits, however, will be determined by you and the skin specialist. The at-home regimen provides daily exfoliation and maximizes the benefits of your peels. Keep in mind that it will take several months of treatment before you see the optimal skin rejuvenation benefits.

Are the at-home skin care products effective without the peels?
Yes, the at-home skincare products can be effective without the peels. Keep in mind, though, that using the at-home products together with a peel regimen will deliver the best results at a much quicker rate.

Who is a candidate for the chemical peel?
During the consultation, your medical history will be reviewed and you will be prescribed the treatment that best meets your needs. Let us know if you have experienced any of the following: active herpes simplex (cold sores), psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, recent surgeries, a bad sunburn, hypertrophic or keloidal scarring or used Accutane. It’s also important to tell us if you sunbathe, use a sun-tanning booth, smoke, are pregnant or nursing, or are a vegetarian.

Can men or younger adults benefit from chemical peels?
Yes! Chemical peels provide the same exfoliation benefits for men as for women, including helping to slough away dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic acid also helps minimize razor bumps. For teens with acne-prone skin, chemical peels help eliminate oil and reduce the further breakout of acne.

Are chemical peels safe?
Yes. Dermatologist have been performing chemical peels for more than 50 years with an excellent safety record.

Is there downtime?
Depending upon which solution we agree upon, there can be absolutely no downtime! For someone looking for a brightening glow for the weekend, a light, refreshing peel is perfect!

Is it painful?
People typically find getting a chemical peel quite relaxing. Imagine laying down, eyes closed and having your face attended to and pampered. There is some minimal discomfort when the solution is applied, but this typically only lasts for a few minutes.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Each peel procedure takes around 20 minutes depending on the type of peel and number of layers applied. During the procedure, a mild tingling, itching or heating sensation may be temporarily experienced.
