A chemical peel is a safe and non-surgical procedure that removes the damaged outer layers of your skin to reveal the healthier, smoother, layers just beneath, reducing the presence of scarring and removing blemishes in the process, for a youthful and luminous glow. Reach out and set up a consultation, and we’ll design a chemical peel that is customized not only to your unique goals, but your skin’s unique characteristics, as well.

What Can a Chemical Peel Help Me With?

When you come in for your consultation, we’ll work closely with you to learn about your goals, and get a clear understanding of your unique skin qualities. With this information, we’ll be able to help you decide whether or not a chemical peel is the right procedure for you.

You’re likely a great candidate for a chemical peel if you’re in the Phoenix or Scottsdale areas, and you’re dealing with:

  • Dully, dry skin
  • Rough, uneven texture
  • Clogged pores
  • Acne, or acne scarring
  • Fine lines, wrinkles, creases
  • Sun damage
  • Discoloration, hyperpigmentation, etc

Customizing Your Chemical Peel

At AdmireMD Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic, we offer chemical peels that range from mild to strong, depending on your needs. We offer alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol peels, with  the strength of each peel being tailored to you. 

Your peel can be combined with other procedures — like a facelift, for example — for additional improvement to skin. In some cases, chemical peels can be covered by insurance (if they’re performed for medical, rather than cosmetic, reasons).

Your Chemical Peel in Scottsdale

During a TCA or phenol peel, your skin will be cleansed and a solution will be applied, which may cause a brief stinging sensation (but this is about the extent of any discomfort you’ll experience during the procedure). Petroleum jelly or a waterproof adhesive tape may be put on your skin following a phenol peel. During an AHA peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution applied; there is no need for post-peel ointment or covering.

Are There Any Side Effects?

A phenol or TCA peel can result in tingling or throbbing, reddened skin, a crust or scab, and significant swelling that lasts, depending on the strength of the peel used, about a week. 

With a phenol peel, eyes may be swollen shut at first, and the patient may be put on a liquid diet and advised to keep talking to a minimum. Any tape used is removed after a day or two. 

AHA peels can cause temporary stinging, redness and irritation, as well as flaking or crusting. After a chemical peel, it is essential that the skin be protected from the sun.
