Chemical Peels

Sun exposure, acne or age can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. Consider a chemical peel if you want to improve the appearance of your skin.   We use organic and other chemical solutions to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.  At Limelight Medspa, we choose from an array of available peels to custom select the right peel for your skin’s need.

What is a chemical peel?

  •  A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.

How does a chemical peel work?

  • A mild organic or chemical solution is applied to the area to be treated, producing a controlled depth change in the skin, which causes a peeling of the upper layer. A thin crust develops and will gently slough off, leaving the skin surface smoother with a more youthful appearance. More superficial peels can be done w little downtime whereas others may leave you pink for 1 to 2 days.

How many treatments do I need?

  • The depth of texture and pigment changes will dictate the number of peels and type of peels needed. With a series of chemical peels you can quickly achieve substantial improvement in the appearance of superficial lines, uneven pigmentation, acne scars and enlarged pores, leaving you with smoother, softer, more radiant skin.

What peels do the physicians perform?

  • The correct peel is chosen after a custom consultation with Dr. Will and/or Dr. Burt.  They will help decide if a phenol peel, Jessners peel, or deeper TCA peel will be best.  These peels are ideal for deeper lines, more complex texture issues, or heavier scarring.
