Chemical Peels in Tampa

In a chemical peel treatment, an acidic solution is applied to the skin to remove damaged top layers, speed cell turnover, and boost collagen growth for a brighter, more even-toned complexion. By creating a controlled injury at a specific depth, chemical peels stimulate new skin growth, to improve skin texture and make it look more radiant.

The right peel can effectively treat common skin concerns like acne, acne scars, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, sun damage, and fine lines. Though primarily for the face, they can be applied to the neck, chest, and the backs of the hands as well.

Chemical peels are the third most commonly performed nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. Popular options include glycolic acid peels, TCA peels (trichloroacetic acid), salicylic acid peels, and Jessner’s solution peels (a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol).

Who’s a good candidate for a chemical peel?

There are many different types of chemical peels designed to address a wide range of issues, so some kind of peel can benefit most people. An experienced provider can recommend an acid solution with the strength and depth best suited to your concerns and skin type.

A 2018 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology examined the safety of superficial chemical peels for Fitzpatrick skin types III–IV and found that fewer than 4% of treatments resulted in complications.

However, chemical peel selection can be limited for some skin types.

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to your skin and product questions. For more information on products best suited for your skin, we recommend contacting your skin care professional.

There are SkinMedica® products that are formulated to be used on all skin types and most skin conditions including sensitive and post-procedure skin. We recommend you always ask your physician which products and regimen will best address your skin type and concerns.

Photodamage to the skin is caused by exposure to harmful ultraviolet light. Photodamage can be acute, as in sunburn, or more commonly, chronic, due to gradual changes in the skin caused by an accumulation of sun exposure throughout one’s life. Sun exposure is by far the most influential environmental factor affecting aging of the skin.

Lines and wrinkles are caused by degenerative changes in the proteins of the skin’s infrastructure such as loss of stored antioxidants and reduction in collagen. Wrinkles are also caused by movement of the skin resulting in creases over time.

Age spots are also known as sun spots or solar lentigines. Age spots are associated with cumulative sun exposure. Sun spots mostly appear in areas consistently exposed to sunlight such as the back of the hands, the forearms, neck, chest and face. The pigment producing cells in the skin (melanocytes) are stimulated to produce more pigment when exposed to ultraviolet rays.

Using sun protection and appropriate skin care products containing specialty ingredients is essential in maintaining healthy skin.

Always ask your physician for the appropriate products to use after a procedure since the regimen may differ depending on the type of procedure received.

Rosacea is a medical condition. Skin care regimens for patients diagnosed with rosacea or any other medical condition should be left to a physician’s discretion. We recommend consulting your physician to learn what SkinMedica® products are best for you.
