How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels remove the outermost layers of the skin and induce a natural and controlled healing process that regenerates new, healthy skin.

What chemical peels are offered at Houston Dermatology Specialists?

We offer multiple chemical peels to address various skin conditions.

Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Jessner, and TCA 15% to 20% Peels

These are considered lighter chemical peels, and they’re used for acne, hyperpigmentation, melasma, fine wrinkling, and improving skin texture and complexion. A series of 3 to 6 chemical peels is recommended for the best benefit.

TCA Peels, 25% to 40%

These peels are considered medium to deep chemical peels. They are used for acne scarring, skin discoloration, sun spots, sun damage, and/or moderate facial wrinkles. There is downtime associated with these types of peels, typically 1 to 2 weeks.
