Chemical peels of various strengths and blends can stimulate and accelerate your skin’s natural regeneration cycle. Effects are often longer-lasting and more dramatic than those seen with more superficial treatments. TOC Medical Spa offers a wide variety of skin peel procedures ranging from mild, natural fruit acid treatments to intensive trichlorocyclic acid (TCA) peels. Our skin care specialists and surgeons collaborate to determine a peel procedure and care regimen tailored to your individual needs.
Our skin peel formulations include:
The VI Peel® contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. The VI Peel® will improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin, reduce the appearance of age spots, and soften lines and wrinkles for more youthful skin. The VI Peel® works well in conjunction with lasers, injectables and post procedure treatments.
Vitalize Peel® from SkinMedica® is a designer chemical peel with a unique blend of ingredients that provides dramatic improvements in skin texture and tone with little to no downtime. It softens wrinkles and refines the skin’s outer layers, providing a healthier, more youthful look. Suitable for all skin types, Vitalize Peel® fades and blends pigment problems, reliably subtracting a number of years from the appearance of aging skin.
Rejuvenize Peel™ from SkinMedica® is an advanced formulation of peeling agents with a built-in anti-irritant and penetration enhancer, providing a precise degree of exfoliation. Fresh, healthy skin is exposed to reveal a renewed, youthful appearance. Consistent results are accompanied with minimal downtime. This formulation works well on skin with sun damage, acne scarring, melasma, and pigmentary changes. Noticeable results are apparent after a single treatment and improve with additional peels.
Theraplex® Peel is an advanced skin renewal treatment based on an innovative formulation of acidic compounds. Theraplex handily removes years from the appearance of the face and neck. Sun damage, aging, pigment spots and acne-related problems respond well to this formulation. It works especially well on oily or acne-prone skin and may be repeated as part of an ongoing maintenance plan customized for your unique needs and desires.
Deeper wrinkles and more intensive skin resurfacing needs may be addressed through laser resurfacing or aesthetic surgery. Your TOC Medical Spa doctor will thoroughly evaluate your skin’s condition and offer options to best suit your unique needs and preferences.
BEFORE YOUR CHEMICAL PEEL:
For the week preceding your chemical peel, please avoid excessive sun exposure, and please avoid any type of hair removal treatment on facial areas such as threading, lip waxing, etc.
If you use Retin-A or a similar topical retinol product, please discontinue its use at least 3 nights before your treatment unless otherwise specified by your provider.
AFTER YOUR CHEMICAL PEEL:
Plan to treat your skin especially gently for a few days after your treatment. It’s best to avoid strenuous exercise (sweating) for a few days, as well as the use of any scrubs or acidic skin products. Please wait to resume use of any facial device such as your Clarisonic cleansing brush, Tria laser, or Nuface as well as resuming the use of Retin A or similar product, as directed by your provider.
You’ll be asked to use a facial-quality sunscreen daily and to try to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible for the next week.
After a chemical peel, there is usually a period of two or more days in which the outermost skin will undergo peeling or flaking. It’s essential that you let this occur naturally and avoid picking or pulling at the skin.
The onset and duration of the peeling phase will vary with the type of chemical peel used, the number of layers of application of the solutions, and the unique structure of your own skin.
