What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a skin resurfacing treatment. During a chemical peel, your dermatologist applies an acidic solution to your skin. The solution causes the surface layer of your skin to “blister” and peel away, revealing the younger, healthier skin underneath.

Heights Dermatology uses chemical peels to treat a wide range of skin needs, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots and sunspots
  • Dull complexion
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Precancerous skin lesions (actinic keratosis)

They may apply the chemical peel to your face, neck, or hands.

What are the types of chemical peels?

Heights Dermatology uses VI Peel® treatments from the Vitality Institute®. These chemical peels come in varying strengths to meet various needs.

VI Peel with Precision Plus

VI Peel with Precision Plus improves your skin’s tone and texture by targeting sun spots and hyperpigmentation.

VI Peel Purify

Heights Dermatology may recommend VI Peel Purify chemical peel for those struggling with acne. This treatment clears out dead cells to open pores, kills acne-causing bacteria, and soothes inflammation and redness.

VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus

Heights Dermatology uses the VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus to treat acne scars and sun-damaged skin. This chemical peel smooths skin texture, repairs acne scars, brightens dark areas, and reduces redness and irritation.

What can I expect after chemical peels?

Chemical peels at Heights Dermatology are simple and pain-free. Your dermatologist explains what you can expect after your peel based on the type you need.

Chemical peels from the Vitality Institute contain a medium-acidic solution. These types of chemical peels exfoliate the first two layers of your skin. You can expect some redness and peeling following your treatment.

Your dermatologist provides specific instructions on caring for your skin while it heals. It’s important not to pick at your skin during the peeling process; doing so could lead to scarring. It takes about a week to heal from these types of chemical peels completely.

The chemical peels at Heights Dermatology require little to no downtime and give you healthier, younger-looking skin within seven days.
