Chemical peels use a chemical solution to improve and smooth the appearance of facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. Chemical peels are used on the face to reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles caused from factors such as sun damage and smoking. They are also effective at evening out the skin’s imperfections and helping to fade brown spots. Peels can also be used on the face and back to assist clearing acne and blemishes. Peels loosen dead cells from the skin’s surface, providing a smoother texture and glow. Our licensed esthetician offers light to superficial-depth chemical peels; however, the deeper, more advanced peels are performed by Dr. Balikian and may require an anesthetic. Dr. Balikian performs 25% Trychloracetic Acid Peels (TCA) on the neck and chest, 35%TCA peels most often on the face, as wellas 88% phenol peels for trouble areas around the eyes and mouth.
