Aging facial skin experiences wrinkling, blemishes and uneven pigmentation. Chemical peels use various chemical solutions to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing the outer layers. The most superficial peel formula is alphahydroxy acid (AHA), such as glycolic, lactic or fruit acids. These agents freshen and improve skin texture with little to no recovery time and is performed in the comforts of our office. A more penetrating, medium-depth chemical peel, such as trichloracetic acid (TCA), gives a more dramatic result but may require several successive treatments. Phenol is a strong chemical causing a deep peel but is not used by Dr. Parva. Dr. Parva primarily uses the TCA, which is safe and effective. Pre-treating the skin prior to any chemical peel is important and we often encourage use of Retin A or Retinol and a lightening skin cream for 4 weeks prior to the peel. Also, keep in mind that chemical peels only address the skin surface and are not a substitute for a facelift, which tightens and repositions loose skin and soft tissue.
