Restore, Refresh, Tighten, and Cleanse

Ranging from mild to strong, there are three types of chemical peels: alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol. The strength of each peel will be tailored to your specific skin and aesthetic goals. Chemical peels can be combined with other procedures, such as a facelift, for additional improvement to the skin. Chemical peels use a chemical solution that is applied directly to the top layer of the skin. This chemical solution causes controlled injury which results in the production of brand-new collagen, which restores and tightens the skin while correcting sun damage. Exfoliation also takes place. The outcome is skin with an improved appearance and texture.

Is a Chemical Peel is Right for You?

If you’re in Bakersfield and you’re interested in having a chemical peel, it may be the ideal treatment for your skin needs. Chemical peels are excellent for those who:

  • Want to improve the condition of their skin
  • Want to enhance or prolong the results of other skin treatments
  • Do not have a history of abnormal skin scarring
  • Have fair skin and light hair
  • Fully understand the procedure, risks, and recovery of their specific peel

Chemical Peel Demonstration

What to Expect

Before treatment, we will cleanse your skin. TCA and phenol chemical peels include anesthetic properties, and an AHA chemical peel produces only a slight stinging. During a TCA or phenol peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution is applied, which may cause a brief stinging sensation. Petroleum jelly or a waterproof adhesive tape may be put on the skin following a phenol peel. During an AHA peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution applied. There is no need for post-peel ointment or covering. The average amount of time for a chemical peel is one hour. 

A phenol or TCA peel can result in tingling or throbbing, reddened skin, a crust or scab, and significant swelling that lasts — depending on the strength of the peel used — about a week. With a phenol peel, your eyes may be swollen shut at first, and you may be put on a liquid diet and advised to keep talking to a minimum. Any tape used will be removed after a day or two. AHA peels can cause temporary stinging, redness, and irritation, as well as flaking or crusting. 

After a chemical peel, it is essential that the skin be protected from the sun.
