Ft. Lauderdale Chemical Peels
Every year, more and more men and women are choosing Chemical Peels as a means of resurfacing their skin to create a fresh, smooth, healthy looking appearance. A safe alternative to surgery, chemical peels reduce fine lines, age spots, scars and wrinkles that appear over time as you age.
Chemical peels are normally performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure uses a liquid solution to peel away the top layers of your skin, revealing new, smoother skin. Chemical peels can be performed on your entire face, specific areas of your face and also on the neck, chest, hands, legs or arms. A big advantage of chemical peels is that they offer a great deal of flexibility. In general, there are three different types of chemical peels.

Alphahydroxy Acids (AHAs), and Glycolic Acid light peels are often called "lunch hour" peels because they can be done quickly and the recovery time is very short. The chemicals used in these procedures lightly peel the skin, which quickly results in skin that is brighter and smoother. Light peels are often done repeatedly over time because the results are not as dramatic and long lasting as deep peels.
Medium Peels use Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) for a medium depth peel that is used to treat moderate sun damage, fine lines and weathered skin. To achieve the best results, medium peels are usually performed two or more times over a span of weeks or months.
Phenol Acid is the strongest chemical solution used for this type of procedure and it causes the deepest skin peel. A deep peel is an extreme one-time procedure that can produce dramatic, longlasting results. This procedure is typically performed on women with extensive wrinkling, numerous dark brown age spots, mild scarring or precancerous growths. The results from a deep peel can last a long time, however, recovery following the treatment can last several weeks or months.
The Vi Peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that delivers excellent skin rejuvenation results. This treatment effectively reduces acne and acne scars, improves uneven skin texture and tone, as well as hyperpigmentation. For older patients, the Vi Peel can help with minor fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots. The Vi Peel requires little or no downtime and is safe on all skin types. Treatment can be repeated on a regular basis for continued skin renewal and luminosity.
