Chemical Peel

A chemical peel refers to a chemical solution to smooth and enhance the texture of facial skin by the removal of damaged outer layers. Phenol, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used in the formula and the amount of each solution in the formula may be adjusted to better fit the patient’s needs. Chemical peels are successful in treating:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
