Peels are designed to mimic what your skin used to be able to achieve on its own, cellular turnover and renewal. Dr. Cortez offers a variety of chemical peel options that address severity of photo damage.
• Lighter chemical peels contain a combination of Trichloroacetic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Salicylic Acid and require no down time.
• Medium chemical peels contain higher strengths of Trichloroacetic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Salicylic Acid in addition to Phenol. This provides a deeper level of cellular turnover and renewal with expected flaking for about 3-5 days.
• Deep chemical peel, the Phenol-Croton Oil Peel, is for skin that has the most severe damage. For more information, refer to Procedures.
