Chemical Peels in Houston, TX

An exfoliating technique that uses a topical solution to promote healthy skin and remove discolorations, many of our clients choose a chemical peel for acne scars or other difficult-to-treat skin conditions.

These treatments promote skin rejuvenation, exposing newer, healthier skin which has a smoother texture and more youthful appearance.

What Types of Chemical Peels Are Available?

Depending on the needs being addressed, there are varying levels of treatment offered.

  • A superficial or mild alpha hydroxy acid peel (AHA) which removes mild discoloration and rough skin on the face, neck, hands, or chest.
  • A medium-strength glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid peel (TCA) which penetrates deeper to lighten age spots and moderate discoloration, and improves fine lines and wrinkles.
  • A deep treatment using a trichloroacetic acid or phenol peel which removes damaged skin cells, helps heal shallow scars, and can even treat some precancerous skin growths.
  • Other alternative treatments include a croton oil peel, salicylic acid, or a beta hydroxy acid peel (BHA).

Chemical Peel Side Effects and Risks

These procedures should always be performed by a licensed esthetician or board-certified cosmetic surgeon. When properly used, side effects like these are seldom seen:

  • Changes to skin color beyond what is expected
  • In very rare cases, scarring might occur, or an infection might develop

What to Expect After a Chemical Peel Treatment

This procedure is done on an outpatient basis. The process may vary slightly but in general:

  • To prepare, your face will be cleaned, and your eyes and hair may be covered to protect them.
  • Depending on the depth of the treatment, you may be given a topical to numb the area.
  • Chemical peel recovery time is 3-14 days, during which you may be given a soothing ointment to apply several times per day.
  • If skin is tight, red, or swollen use ice packs and/or a cooling fan, along with pain relievers such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium.
  • You might need to sleep in a semi-reclined position to reduce swelling.
  • You should avoid direct sun and vigorous exercise during the recovery period.
