Chemical peels are great for treating fine lines of the face and skin discoloration that comes from excessive sun exposure. This can be combined with facial surgical rejuvenative procedures. There are many chemical peels available for use, but we most often use trichloroacetic acid (TCA) that can provide a medium depth peel. Other more invasive peels can be performed for the right candidate including Phenol peels. Deeper skin treatment can be treated with both ablative and non-ablative laser and light systems as well. The procedure usually takes about 1 hour with recuperation of about 1 week.
