Chemical Peel

Treats sun-related damage and discoloration

A chemical peel is an exfoliating treatment designed to erase or diminish sun-related damage. It is also a recommended treatment for mild, moderate and severe acne, lines/wrinkles and enlarged pores.

Dr. Clinton and her staff will determine the specific chemicals that will be used for your peel based on your skin concerns and the results you would like to see.

How it Works/What to Expect

During treatment, Dr. Clinton or a member of her staff cleanse the face before applying a topical solution. Many patients experience a mild stinging sensation that quickly subsides.

After treatment, the face will feel tight and appear red, similar to a mild sunburn. Depending on the type of peel, some patients experience mild, moderate or significant peeling 3 to 5 days after treatment.

After one chemical peel, most patients notice an immediate improvement in skin’s texture. Generally, results are cumulative so maximum benefits are seen with a series of chemical peels.

Patient Instructions

Do not pick or peel the skin because it can delay healing or cause scarring. See complete treatment instructions.
