Chemical peels are used to improve the appearance of the skin in many areas, such as the face, neck and hands. At Cosmetic Aesthetics we use 20% TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and Salicylic acid peels. These are nontoxic chemicals that cause the top layer of the skin cells to dry up and eventually peel off in about a week. After the peel, the new layer of the skin will have a smoother texture. Peels can remove sun damage (hyperpigmentation), acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. For deeper issues such as melasma, we use a combination of Microchanneling treatments and peels. We also have plant and fruit based peels for clients that have more sensitive skin, or anyone that likes an alternative to chemicals. Customized peels are always an option upon request.
