Chemical Peel

Peraza Dermatology Group offers acid peels of varying strength levels to treat wrinkling, acne, enlarged pores, and uneven pigmentation due to sun damage and melasma. Treatments are personalized to address specific skin types and conditions to ensure the correct peel will give the results you want.

What is it?

Superficial chemical (salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and trichloroacetic acid) peels are used to treat wrinkling, acne, enlarged pores, and uneven pigmentation.

How does it work?

The peels target the upper layers of the skin and result in healthy new skin cells and the elimination of dead skin cells. Often, several chemical peels, separated by a few months, are needed for optimal results. The appropriate chemical peel will be chosen to optimize the desired result. In addition, it is imperative to continue with aggressive sun protection practices to prevent wrinkles, pigment irregularities, age spots, and other skin damage.

Where is it used?

Superficial chemical peels are typically applied to the entire face, but can be used as needed on other parts of the body.
