What is a Chemical Peel?
The Chemical Peel begins with an individualized performance prescription to prepare your skin for achievement of maximal results. Based on your consultation with our providers, the appropriate medical grade chemical peel will be selected to treat your specific challenges and aesthetic goals. After the peeling process is complete, you will be prescribed a professional highly-effective, yet simple daily skincare regimen to enhance and maintain results.
At Physician Artistry, we offer a variety of medical grade chemical peels which have a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid, resorcinol, retinol acid, glycol acid, phenol and other various medical chemicals.
A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation procedure that makes the texture of your skin smoother and gives you an even skin tone by removing the top layers of dead skin. Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin that promotes the growth of new skin with an improved appearance*.
The different chemical solutions produce different degrees of injury to the skin. There are two layers of the skin; the outer layer is called the epidermis. Superficial peels can help improve conditions such as acne, mild photoaging and discoloration. Deeper peels produce injury within the dermis and can reverse moderate-to-severe photoaging and wrinkles. In general, the deeper peels offer the most dramatic results, but require longer recovery periods and carry a higher risk of complications.
After evaluating your skin condition and concerns, we will discuss the best chemical peel for your skin. Some peels can cause mild redness, crusting and stinging for a few days after our procedure, but no downtime is necessary. After a few days, your skin will look fresh, smooth and younger*.
How does a Chemical Peel work?
Every service at Physician Artistry begins with a thorough consultation with our providers to discuss your needs and ensure you receive the right treatment to achieve your goals. If the Chemical Peel is right for you, you can begin preparation for the peel immediately following your appointment. At your next scheduled appointment, the appropriate medical-choice peel will be applied and you will be administered a protocol for post peel care. Proper preparation, peel choice and after peel care are essential for long term benefits and amazing results.

How do you know a Chemical Peel is right for you?
Chemical peels have actually been used for hundreds of years and have a proven safety record in the proper hands. However, chemical peels are not for everyone. For example, people who are in poor general health should not get peels. Also, active infections and certain medications (i.e. isoretinoin (Accutane)) may preclude the use of certain types of chemical peels, especially medium and deep. Sometimes, people with abnormal scarring, certain skin diseases, or recent surgeries should not have a chemical peel.
Although there are a variety of anti-aging procedures available, the Chemical Peel is the best choice for tailored results. It is essential that you receive the appropriate type of peel, percentage of peel and pH of peel, depending on skin type, aesthetic concern, lifestyle and overall health of your skin. Our providers exclusively recommend medical-choice peels based on your personal goals and lifestyle.
