Chemical Peels

Over the years, the appearance of our skin changes dramatically. Chemical peels are special solutions that remove the outer, damaged layer of skin. The result is a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. Wrinkles, sun damage and blemishes are just a few of the things we can treat with chemical peels and skin care services at Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery.

Types of Chemical Peels at Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery

Chemical peels are facial rejuvenation solutions that improve the appearance and texture of facial skin by gently removing its outer, damaged layers. Facial cosmetic peels are particularly helpful for individuals with sun damaged, pigmented and/or wrinkled skin. Today, there are a number of different types of chemical peels, which vary in ingredients, strength, as well as the depth of peeling. The most frequently performed peels are either alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) based. The TCA based peels are much stronger and more appropriate for patients with moderate skin problems.
