Chemical Peels in Tampa

In a chemical peel treatment, an acidic solution is applied to the skin to remove damaged top layers, speed cell turnover, and boost collagen growth for a brighter, more even-toned complexion. By creating a controlled injury at a specific depth, chemical peels stimulate new skin growth, to improve skin texture and make it look more radiant.

The right peel can effectively treat common skin concerns like acne, acne scars, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, sun damage, and fine lines. Though primarily for the face, they can be applied to the neck, chest, and the backs of the hands as well.

Chemical peels are the third most commonly performed nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. Popular options include glycolic acid peels, TCA peels (trichloroacetic acid), salicylic acid peels, and Jessner’s solution peels (a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol).

Benefits of chemical peels

Chemical peels are a type of resurfacing treatment to quickly and effectively bring a new glow and radiance to your complexion. The peel itself can be customized to target a variety of skin conditions—acne, brown spots, scarring, wrinkles, and even loose skin.

  • Diminshes the appearance of acne and acne scars
  • Minimizes the appearance of brown spots due to age or sun damage
  • Makes fine lines and wrinkles less visible
  • Encourages new cell renewal for a fresher complexion

Who is a good candidate for a chemical peel?

There are many different types of chemical peels designed to address a wide range of issues, so some kind of peel can benefit most people. An experienced provider can recommend an acid solution with the strength and depth best suited to your concerns and skin type.

A 2018 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology examined the safety of superficial chemical peels for Fitzpatrick skin types III–IV and found that fewer than 4% of treatments resulted in complications.

However, chemical peel selection can be limited for some skin types.
