Are the signs of aging slowly creeping up on you? You’re not alone. The wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, and scars that come with age are nearly universal — but that doesn’t mean that you have to accept them as a fact of life. Chemical peels are an effective, non-invasive way to reverse these signs of aging.

What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available today — and it’s not surprising why. It works by using a chemical solution to smooth the texture of the skin and remove the outermost, damaged layers. These treatments are both minimally invasive and effective, successfully fighting back against the signs of aging and making you look and feel years younger.
Minimally Invasive Skin Rejuvenation
Unlike dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments, chemical peels can bring patients beautiful results without the need for extended recovery time. Chemical peels are minimally invasive, involving absolutely no surgery, injections, and only minor downtime.
Combat Several Aspects of Aging at Once
Chemical peels are so sought after because they can improve many of the different types of skin problems that contribute to an aged appearance. They can contribute to improving:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age and liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough skin and scaly patches
- Sun-damaged skin
- Pre-cancerous lesions
In addition to lessening the appearance of these specific skin conditions, chemical peels can improve the overall look, feel, and texture of the skin. All of these different methods of improvement work to give you a healthy, glowing complexion.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Candidacy for chemical peels is determined on an individual basis. Typically, people with lighter skin benefit from chemical peels more. But individuals with darker skin can still undergo chemical peels and achieve good results. During your consultation appointment, our Licensed Medical Esthetician, Alli Glashower, will take into account the condition of your skin, your aesthetic goals, and your medical history when deciding if it’s right for you. A face-to-face consultation is important so that the esthetician can develop an individual plan that is right for you and can discuss with you the proper preparations and after care instructions that will be required of you in order to schedule your chemical peel in a way that best fits your schedule.
