At American Skin Institute, our chemical peels offer a range of formulations to target various skin depths and concerns. While commonly used on the face, they are safe and effective for the neck, chest, back, arms, legs, and more. During your consultation, our expert assessment of color, depth, location, and texture guides us in selecting the ideal peel for your specific needs.

Our formulations include Glycolic Acid, Jessners, Phenol, Salicylic Acid, and Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA). We begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin to remove excess oils, ensuring optimal penetration of the peel solution. You may experience a mild burning sensation during application, which is managed with cool air from a fan. Afterward, we apply an acid neutralizer and rinse the area with cool water. Within a few days, you’ll notice exfoliation and peeling, with healing time and post-care varying based on the peel type.

Our chemical peels offer numerous benefits, including exfoliation of dead skin cells, reduction of fine lines, treatment of sun damage, correction of uneven skin tone, smoothing of texture, reduction of brown spots and melasma, and effective treatment for certain types of acne. Each peel session is tailored to your skin’s specific needs, ensuring optimal results and minimal downtime.

Experience the transformative benefits of our chemical peels at American Skin Institute. Schedule your consultation today to discover how we can enhance your skin’s health and appearance.
