About Chemical Peels

Chemical peel involves the application of a chemical to the skin to remove the surface layers. Depending on the strength and depth of the peel, this treatment can be used to correct concerns including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Other irregularities, including mild scarring

Chemical Peel Procedures

The choice of chemical depends on the degree of correction that is needed and the improvement desired. Under the medical guidance of your doctor, his highly trained aesthetic staff will take the time to discuss your expectations and needs prior to your procedure. Together, the two of you will decide which peel is the best choice for you. Peeling techniques have been refined in recent years, allowing more precise control and improved results.

At our surgery clinic in West Des Moines we offer various topical chemical peels, which are an effective method to treat acne, sun damage, fine lines and mild scarring. A series of peels combined with our microdermabrasion treatments or HydraFacial MD® treatments are extremely beneficial in helping undo the undesirable effects of time and the environment on your skin and improve your overall skin texture. You will realize the greatest benefit through a series of three treatments. Your aesthetician will analyze your skin physiology and recommend a procedure that is right for you.

Recovery will depend on the type of peel that is selected. Deeper peels can cause the skin to become red, raw, and very flaky as the skin sloughs away. Some women and men schedule this procedure around important events while this takes place. Others produce more of a “sunburn” effect, which is more tolerable. Some peels performed at our medical spa are very mild, and you can return immediately to work and most regular activities afterward.
