Chemical Peels

You were looking for a simple way to breathe new life into your skin that doesn’t require injectables, lasers, or surgery? You may want to consider a chemical peel. This treatment is an effective way to get beautiful skin rejuvenation results that can be customized to meet your unique aesthetic goals.

Revitalize your Skin with a Chemical Peel at IgniteRx Medical. Chemical peels are minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedures that use a combination of different chemicals to exfoliate the skin. Depending on the strength of the peel, this can cause the uppermost layers of the skin to peel away, revealing younger, healthier-looking tissue underneath. The dermatology department at IgniteRx offers our patients a selection of superficial, medium, and deep peels.

Superficial Peels

Superficial peels are the gentlest peels offered at our practice. These skin rejuvenation procedures are mild enough that patients can return to their regular daily routines as soon as they’re done with treatment. While these peels can sometimes cause patients to experience slight redness or flaking, these side effects usually subside within a few days.

Superficial peels can be used to

  • Reduce dark spots
  • Maintain skin health
  • Cleanse pores
  • Improve skin tone and texture

Medium Peels

Medium peels are slightly stronger than superficial peels, and therefore, require a more extended period of recovery. Following treatment, the outermost layer of the skin begins to crust and fall off for the first few days after treatment. The entire peeling process is usually complete within a week of undergoing a medium peel.

Medium peels can be used to

  • Correct pigmentation issues
  • Soften sun damage
  • Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines

Deep Peels

Deep peels remove significantly more skin than medium ones and often require longer recovery time significantly. These peels can be used to address more severe skin concerns that would otherwise be treated with laser skin resurfacing treatment. Typically, we recommend that our patients undergo a different aesthetic procedure to treat these more severe concerns.
