In fact, it is not uncommon for patients to visit the Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center asking for one solution to fix all of their aesthetic concerns. Oftentimes, our doctors may recommend treatments such as chemical peels to provide a single option for various issues.

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are special skin therapies that are created to address more than one skin issue with the use of a specialized blend of chemicals. Chemicals that might be used in chemical peels may include:

  • Salicylic acid
  • Phytic acid
  • Retinoic acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
  • Glycolic acid
  • Lactic acid
  • Carbolic Acid

These chemicals are known for helping restore the skin’s healthy appearance by exfoliation. The chemical peel is applied to the skin, and depending on the type, may remain on the skin or be removed moments later. There are different types of chemical peels that may be used, including more superficial peels and more aggressive, deeper peels. The stronger the peel, the stronger the chemicals and the more downtime needed for healing.

What type of chemical peels is right for me?

Patients will often have questions for their dermatologist about the type of chemical peel that best fits their needs. There is no “one size fits all” solution. First, patients should book an appointment to speak to the doctors at Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center to discuss the specific needs and concerns they have. Patients might want to find a treatment that addresses scaring, acne, pigmentation, or fine lines and wrinkles. Then, the best chemical peel will be chosen by our experts to get patients started in the right direction towards healthier, more youthful looking skin!
