A chemical peel is a simple, non-surgical procedure to remove the damaged, outer layers of the skin on the face. Blemishes and scars are reduced, giving the face a smoother, cleaner appearance. We offer a variety of strengths of peels catered to your skin type.
A Medium-depth Chemical Peel involves the application of a chemical exfoliant that causes controlled damage of the epidermis and part or all of the papillary dermis (top layer), which ignites regenerative changes and restores the skin’s tone and texture in just a single setting. The most common combination of agents in a Medium-depth Chemical Peels is trichloroacetic acid (TCA), for which it is named, plus Jessner’s solution.
Because the strength of a peel determines the level of penetration, the nature of destruction, and the inflammatory response, a Medium-depth Chemical Peel causes moderate destruction and offers intermediate results when compared to a Superficial Peel, Intermediate or Vi Peel. Medium-depth Chemical Peels can be applied to the face and are highly effective in smoothing texture, improving superficial discoloration and mild photo-aging, eliminating fine wrinkles, and enhancing vitality of skin. There is moderate downtime associated with Medium-depth Chemical Peels, and they can be applied up to four times per year.

Medium-depth Chemical Peels are ideal for those who want more dramatic results than a Superficial Peel can offer but wish to avoid the risk and recovery time associated with deeper peels.
Unlike deeper-grade peels, Medium-depth Chemical Peels may be performed safely on darker skin tones.
- For optimal results, Medium-depth Chemical Peels should be repeated every 4 to 6 months.
