Chemical peels are an excellent option to address specific areas of the face. They can effectively reduce wrinkling, especially around the eyes and lips. They may also be used to treat sun-damaged skin, as well as abnormal skin coloration and acne scars. They can be effective by themselves, or they can be used in conjunction with a facelift or eyelid surgery.
Degrees of depth
Chemical peels are categorized based upon how deeply they affect your skin. Lighter chemical peels affect only the top epidermal layer of the skin. Others go deeper and penetrate the dermal layer. The degree of depth determines the issues corrected by chemical peels, as well as the recovery time and length of results.
We offer PCA Ultra and Sensi peels for a light peel, and these are administered as a series over three-to-four week intervals. These are utilized to rejuvenate tired and worn out skin. These superficial peels work wonders to give patients healthy, glowing, blemish-free skin.
For a deeper peel, we use various concentrations of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) that may be used to treat:
- Deeper wrinkles
- Rosacea (flushed complexion due to expanding capillaries)
- Milia (small, white cysts on the skin)
- Shallow acne scarring

Length of results
- When it comes to chemical peels, the results last depending upon how deeply the peel penetrates. This is because a chemical peel does not do anything to actually increase volume beneath the skin, as would be the case with a cosmetic filler. The skin naturally regrows back into its previous state.
- For a lighter peel, results last from one to two months. A medium peel, such as our TCA treatment, can last up to six months. Dr. Asaria will help establish which type of peel is right for you, based upon the issues you would like to resolve.
