Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels offer one of the least invasive options to improve the appearance of your skin. Chemical peels can effectively be used on a variety of skin issues from acne to age spots and fine lines and wrinkles.

The term “chemical peeling” sounds harsh and some peels of the past were aggressive, leaving patients with mixed feelings about the process. Now, there are peels for every skin type and tolerance. Most peels take less than an hour to perform, with minimal discomfort during the treatment.

At the Asarch Center and DERMAspa, we will help you choose which chemical peel will be right for you.

Consider a Chemical Peel to:

  • Address Acne and acne scars
  • Fade Age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Minimize Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Soften rough skin and scaly patches
  • Lessen Sun Damage

What Is Chemical Peeling?

Chemical peeling is a technique used to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin. With this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the surface layers to separate and eventually peel off. The newly rejuvenated skin is usually smoother with an improvement of the color and texture.
