Chemical Peels

Our skin becomes blemished and less resilient with sun exposure and age, but beneath our outermost layers of skin is healthy, young tissue. To reach this fresh tissue and rejuvenate our look, Dr. Josh Olson of the Advanced Plastic Surgery Institute offers chemical peel treatments in Gilbert, AZ, for Scottsdale, Phoenix, and surrounding areas. Chemical peels deeply exfoliate damaged facial skin and bring out your smoother, more youthful side.

Allow board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Olson to make your skin rejuvenation goals a reality. Call The Advanced Skin Lounge medical spa in Gilbert at (480) 466-7355 or request a consultation online.

Your Skin, Renewed

Over time, we all develop imperfections on our skin. In many cases, we don’t have to continue living with them. Dr. Olson can safely and effectively remove layers of marred skin using a chemical peel. As the old skin peels away, you are left with a smoother, clearer visage. Patients often add related facial treatments such as laser skin rejuvenation or injectable fillers. In some cases, patients considering a chemical peel may be better suited for HydraFacial MD® or microneedling treatments using the Eclipse MicroPen™. Microneedling helps restore a smooth, toned appearance to your skin and can be used for all parts of the face and body.

Chemical peels are used to refresh the skin of the face and offer the following benefits:

  • Diminish the appearance of some scars
  • Reverse the effects of sun damage
  • Balance uneven skin color
  • Smooth out fine to severe wrinkles
  • Enhance facial surgery

What Are the Different Types of Peels?

At The Advanced Skin Lounge med spa in the Scottsdale-Phoenix area, Dr. Olson primarily offers light or medium peels. The options include:

PCA Skin Peels

Most PCA chemical peels target the skin’s top layers and involve minimal recovery time. Different formulas can be used, depending on the patient’s skin type and the strength and depth needed to produce the desired goals. In some cases, patients can give their skin a “boost” with a single treatment. It’s more common to schedule a series of treatments to effectively treat specific conditions.

Deeper PCA peels blend different ingredients, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which can address stubborn skin conditions that resist treatment from lighter chemical peels.

ZO 3-Step Peel®

The 3-step peel from the ZO® Skin Health product line uses a blend of exfoliants, retinol, and multi-action agents to improve the health and appearance of your skin. The steps involved in the treatment include a peel applied at our med spa followed by at-home treatments. Combined, they reduce signs of aging and skin discoloration.

The chemical peel applied in the first step of the treatment is made from 5% lactic acid, 17% salicylic acid, and 10% TCA. That’s followed by the application of a 6% retinol cream, which penetrates even deeper after the initial peel breaks down the skin’s surface. The retinol cream reduces wrinkles and firms the skin. It also includes antioxidants to help produce long-lasting protection.

The last of the 3 steps involves the continuing application of a Calming Crème that stimulates the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid while also acting as a barrier against environmental pollutants.
