Chemical Peel

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that revitalizes your skin and refreshes your appearance by removing dead and damaged skin. After the peel removes one or more layers of skin, fresh skin grows in to replace old skin, creating a brighter, younger-looking appearance.

What skin problems improve with a chemical peel?

Chemical peels treat common problems such as:

  • Dry skin
  • Red skin
  • Clogged pores
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Uneven tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Age spots (liver spots)

Maintaining firm, healthy skin with a chemical peel also prevents future skin problems and fights the appearance of wrinkles.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

Your overall results depend on the type of peel:

Light peel

A light peel exfoliates your skin, easily removing only the outer layer of old, dead skin. This type of peel does an excellent job of treating dry skin, improving blotchy skin, and diminishing the appearance of fine lines.

Medium peel

A medium peel goes a little deeper, penetrating the middle layer of your skin. You’ll experience all the results of a light peel and more, as a medium peel also treats age spots, smooths away moderate wrinkles, improves texture, and evens out your skin tone. A medium peel also treats acne and acne scars.

What chemical peel products will I receive?

Dr. Zarcone performs your chemical peel using VI Peel™, a line of five high-quality products that contain a blend of ingredients formulated to target specific skin problems:

The original peel makes a great first-time peel for healthy skin, and it’s specially formulated to prevent future skin damage.

VI Peel Advanced

The advanced peel targets aging skin and wrinkles, stimulates collagen production, and improves your skin’s elasticity.  

VI Peel Precision Plus

With this peel, you’ll combat texture, uneven skin tone, and skin pigmentation problems such as sun damage and melasma.

VI Peel Purify Precision Plus

Dr. Zarcone recommends this peel if you need to treat oily skin, acne, acne scarring, and skin hyperpigmentation caused by acne.

VI Peel Purify

The purify peel also targets acne and the range of acne symptoms, as it opens pores and reduces acne breakouts.
