Chemical Peels

Home / Aesthetics / Chemical Peels

Chemical peels exfoliate the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of blemishes, smooth skin texture, improve radiance, and restore skin health. They can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, or legs. They are most effective at enhancing cell turnover and improving the appearance on the surface of the skin.

During the treatment, your skincare professional will apply one or more layers of a chemical peel solution onto the skin for a specified amount of time. This is dependent on the type of chemical peel used, the concentration of the solution, the skin type, and the skin’s reactivity to the treatment. The goal is to create a controlled, safe injury to the skin, thereby prompting skin to naturally repair itself and reveal newer, brighter, healthier skin.


It is important that chemical peels are performed by a licensed skincare professional with access to high-performing peel solutions that are clinically proven to deliver results. Your skincare professional may also recommend advanced homecare products to precondition skin or extend results. Deeper peels require more recovery time and are performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dana Coberly, MD. They may be performed in-office or combined with other procedures in the operating room. See our esthetician or Dr. Coberly to see which chemical peel is right for you.
