Chemical peels are topical applications used to aid in the gentle shedding of the top layers of your skin. There are varying types and strengths of peeling products used depending on your skin type and the particular problem being addressed. In our office, we utilize several different peel compounds including glycolic acid, salcylic acid, and for deeper peels trichloracetic acid. Some newer peel technologies combine peeling agents to generate an effective exfoliation with minimal downtime. An individualized treatment plan will be determined by you and your Natural Image Dermatologist.
