Chemical Peels done at VibrantSkin allow for controlled, superficial to medium depth damage of the skin which then allows your skin to heal and form fresh new skin. Various peels are used for different purposes: salicylic acid peels are safe in virtually any skin type and can treat both acne and discoloration. They have little downtime and usually little to no peeling.
Glycolic acid peels are also great for discoloration and also for aging changes in the skin. They typically are associated with more peeling than salicylic acid, but this usually lasts less than one week. There are many other types of peels, but all are meant to improve your skin. Peels can be used in combination with other treatments. Typically Dr. Buster will recommend a regimen to prepare your skin for any chemical peels and also to achieve better results once the peel(s) are done. Patients typically need a series of between 3 and 6 peels to achieve results, depending on the treatment goals. Peels are done every few weeks until the desired endpoint is reached.
All chemical peels at VibrantSkin are performed by Dr. Buster.
