What are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic facial procedure that uses powerful chemical formulas of varying strengths to exfoliate the skin in order to reduce the appearance of facial imperfections and correct skin conditions. The medical grade solutions that we offer work to peel away the dead, damaged upper layer of skin to reveal softer, smoother, blemish-free skin.

The Benefits of a Chemical Peel

If you wish to surgery and needles, a chemical peel is an ideal alternative for skin rejuvenation. A chemical peel procedure can offer patients a reduced appearance of:

 

  • Sunspots, discoloration, and stretch marks
  • Deep scarring and scar tissue
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rough, dry skin
  • Wrinkles, fine lines, and creases
  • Acne and acne scarring

The Chemical Peel Procedure

Before you schedule your chemical peel appointment, you will meet with a member of our team for a skin assessment and consultation to help determine if a chemical peel is right for you. From there, the ideal treatment solution and strength will be decided between you and our certified specialist. During the actual treatment process, the chemical peel solution will be applied directly to the skin and left on for the allocated amount of time. After the procedure, the top few layers of damaged, blemished skin will peel away, revealing fresh, healthy skin in its wake.

Skin Care Peels

Various peels are available to smooth and revitalize the skin and even help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Most peels are extremely well tolerated and the results obtained are quick and often immediately noticeable. Recovery time is minimal, and the process leaves the skin smoother, often reducing the effects of sun damage and appearance of fine lines. We offer the following peels:

Glycolic Acid Treatments

At Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach, we offer a variety of chemical peels, including glycolic acid treatments. Glycolic acid is a popular solution known for its effectiveness in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and light acne scarring. The formula is derived from sugar cane and is a fruit acid that features nutrients and ingredients that can help to peel away the older, rougher surface skin.
