Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a solution that deeply exfoliates your skin, causing the old, dead skin cells to fall off. When this happens, you’re left with smooth, fresh skin and a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Beyond giving your skin a rejuvenated look, Dr. Bushore may recommend chemical peels to:

  • Heal acne

  • Improve texture

  • Decrease pigmentation

  • Shrink pores

  • Reduce redness

What types of chemical peels are available?

At Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics, Dr. Bushore offers chemical peels from PCA SkinⓇ. These peels are a favorite among many celebrities and provide you with a relaxing experience.

Specially trained and certified by PCA Skin, Dr. Bushore knows what treatment combinations are best for you skin. He may use a variety of peels, including:

Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peels

Made with trichloroacetic acid, TCA peels are strong, non-toxic chemical peels. These are among the strongest available, and FDA-approved to treat actinic keratoses, age spots, melasma, and sun damage.

Salicylic Peels

Salicylic peels contain betahydroxy acid and provide a rejuvenating effect on your skin. This peel stimulates collagen production and reduces fine lines, discoloration, and acne scarring.

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic — also called alphahydroxy acid (AHA) — peels gently exfoliate the skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles, adult acne, and dull or uneven complexions. It stimulates cellular turnover and requires minimal downtime.

Are pre- and post-treatment care recommended for chemical peels?

Dr. Bushore recommends both pre- and post-treatment care. PCA Skin offers a range of daily skin care products that prepare your skin for a chemical peel.

Using pre-treatment, you’re more likely to have healthy and balanced skin, which can improve the results of your chemical peel and reduce the risk of complications or unwanted side effects. Dr. Bushore may also recommend post-treatment products to reduce side effects and protect your new skin.

If you’re doing monthly chemical peel treatments, he may also suggest using PCA Skin products daily. This skin care regimen keeps your skin healthy and looking fabulous. A variety of products are offered that:

  • Cleanse

  • Correct

  • Hydrate

  • Protect
