Chemical peels are a quick treatment, popular with people of all ages and skin types. Chemical peel is an umbrella term for a variety of different, customized methods of removing the top layer(s) of skin (using chemicals) to simultaneously reveal younger-looking skin below the surface and encourage collagen production. The top layers of our skin are the first to show superficial signs of aging and sun damage, such as fine lines and sun spots. Collagen is the key to younger-looking skin, but we produce less of it as we age. Any trauma to the skin, including a controlled incident like a chemical peel, tells the body to start producing a rush of collagen at that site in order to help with healing.

There are many types of chemical peels available at both the light and medium depths. Not all chemical peels are suitable for every person, which is why it’s critical to only work with a MedSpa that’s more than a Medspa. VIDA is founded and managed by MDs and board-certified experts who work with clients to design a personalized peel suitable for their skin goals and types.

Types of Chemical Peels

VIDA offers a selection of the highest-quality chemical peels, including the superficial PCA peel as well as SkinMedica’s Vitalize peel and Rejuvenize Peel. The PCA peel clears skin and is suitable for all skin types. This peel enhances skin cell turnover to address a wide variety of common skin complaints. The Microderm-Peel combines the use of the DiamondTone microdermabrasion tool with any superficial peel.

TCA peels are the most requested medium peel because they use a non-toxic chemical. Treated skin simply dries up and sloughs away within 10 days of the treatment. The Jessner Peel is fantastic to address hyperpigmentation and allows for a deeper penetration with the help of retinoic acid.

VIDA exclusively offers lighter chemical peels as an aesthetic treatment to keep downtime to a minimum no matter which peel you choose. These peels provide instant and dramatic results without the discomfort and downtime of deeper chemical peels. Discover more about the ways you can pair chemical peels with other treatments, such as dermaplaning or microdermabrasion, during a complimentary consultation.
