Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a beautiful way to improve the texture of the skin, reduce pores, foster a healthy glow and improve acne. Dr. McCoy has always recommended a chemical peel as an economic treatment that delivers a beautiful, natural result. Chemical peels can be very mild, moderate or more aggressive. This will be individualized for the patient and the patient’s concerns.

How the Chemical Peel Works

Chemical peeling agents cause a controlled injury to the skin. This causes the treated area to peel away. Mild to moderate peels are safe and effective, with minimal side effects and minimal downtime. Typically a series of 1 to 3 peels is recommended. Dr. McCoy suggests chemical peels as part of a complete treatment plan for general rejuvenation, sun damage, texture issues and acne.

What to Expect

For 24 hours after the treatment, you will have a healthy glow (may look like you’ve had a little too much sun). On the second day, you get dry and tight. Toward the end of the second day, or on the third day, you will peel. Peeling is similar to what is experience post-sunburn. Typically, you peel days 3-5. By day 5 or 6, skin will be dry and slightly pink. There is minimal to no discomfort during this process.
