Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a younger look. They may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.
Beta Lift™ is a state of the art chemical peel that has redefined the traditional superficial peel. This advanced dermatology treatment uses beta hydroxyacid, takes five minutes, and is used primarily to reduces acne lesions and enlarged pores.
Beta Lift™ will exfoliate dead and dull cells from the surface of your skin. The procedure stimulates a burst of renewal within your skin to bring healthy, young, living cells to the surface. Beta Lift™ is also able to penetrate skin follicles – making Beta Lift™ a well-suited chemical peel for conditions such as acne, acne scars, hyper pigmentation, and enlarged pores.
TCA peels are medium-depth peels that treat fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCAs are the preferred chemical solution for darker-skinned patients and may be used on the neck and other areas of the body. Multiple treatments may be required. Treatments only last 10-15 minutes, and recovery time is fairly short.
