Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are one of the most time tested, cost effective treatments to unveil beautiful skin. Specific medical grade peeling agents are applied to the skin to carefully remove the outermost layer of rough, aging, sun-damaged skin. This non-surgical treatment takes very little time from start to finish and the results can be quite impressive. Whether you desire a superficial, mild treatment or something more advanced, you can rely on our expert staff to determine which peel is right for you.

We have a variety of chemical peel options to suit your needs at our Raleigh, NC med spa. Our peels are designed to treat a wide range of problematic skin conditions, such as fine lines and wrinkles, melasma (mask of pregnancy), uneven skin tone, age spots, sun damage, acne and acne scarring.

Chemical peels treatments are not limited to treating just the face. Other popular areas for peels are the neck, chest, hands, and almost anywhere on the body where you may have concerns. Regardless of the area you choose for treatment, a peel can help you bask in the glow of new, healthy, radiant skin.

Have you avoided chemical peels because you feared discomfort or didn’t want to look “beet red” for weeks? If so, you can now put your fears aside. We have carefully chosen chemical peels with a wide range of strengths and concentrations to provide safe but potent exfoliation, without unnecessary downtime.

Chemical peels are classified by depth of action into superficial, medium, and deep peels. The depth of the peel is related to the type and concentration of the chemical solution, as well as how deep the solution penetrates the skin. The degree of exfoliation you experience will depend on the type of peel that is chosen for your skin type, appearance goals, and social schedule.

Following your chemical peel, some amount of skin peeling should be expected, depending on the type of peel performed. You should take extra precautions when out in the sun, by using high-strength SPF protection, and wearing protective clothing. The fresh layer of skin revealed by your chemical peel will be delicate, and providing a generous amount of protection from the sun and other aging elements will ensure long-lasting results.
Every chemical peel that we offer is designed to reveal a marked improvement in your skin’s tone and texture. You’ll enjoy skin that feels smoother and looks clearer than it has in years.

Davis & Pyle Plastic Surgery has helped men and women from all over North Carolina, including Durham and Chapel Hill, enjoy a positive, rewarding and comfortable skin care experience.
