Chemical Peels

Over time, the skin’s appearance changes due to the accumulative effects of aging, genetics, and exposure to the sun and pollutants. This results in age spots, sun spots, freckles, wrinkling, splotching, or a dullness in the skin tone. Chemical peels offer an effective way to treat these issues and refresh the skin’s appearance. Chemical peels work by applying a solution to the skin to remove the surface layers of the skin, after which a new layer of skin with improved smoothness, tone, texture, and clarity emerges.

At our Evansville, Indiana office, Dr. Paik and Shay Glisson, FNP-BC, offer several types of chemical peels designed to create smooth, clear, and natural-looking results. These treatments help restore our clients to a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

We provide two levels of chemical peels to fit the needs of our clients – light and medium depth peels. This allows our doctors to precisely match the variances within each person’s face to the most appropriate type of chemical peel. Some facial areas may need a lighter peel, while other areas may warrant heavier treatment. This flexibility allows us to structure and adapt each treatment individually to provide even and natural-looking results.

Light Peels

Light chemical peels include alpha-hydroxy acid or fruit acid treatments such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acid peels. These peels are mild and can be repeated with minimal recovery time to achieve the desired results for sun damage, mild wrinkling, and uneven pigmentation.

Medium Peels

Medium peels include trichloroacetic acid peels (TCA). These peels affect deeper layers of skin and are used in treating moderate cases of wrinkling, sun damage, and blotched pigmentation. Medium peels require about one week of recovery time when post-treatment instructions are followed.

The Perfect Derma™ Peel

Perfect skin is just a peel away! The Perfect Derma Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after just the first treatment. Glutathione, a documented anti-aging antioxidant and the active ingredient in the Perfect Derma peel, improves overall appearance and leaves your skin looking smooth, glowing, and refreshed. This innovative peel fights off the aging effects of free radicals, enhancing cellular health and inhibiting the production of melanin for clearer and brighter skin.
