Chemical Peels Nashville

Chemically exfoliate your skin at any of our Tennessee locations

A chemical peel is a process in which a chemical solution is applied to the face to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells. There are varying types and strengths of peels, depending on the concerns you desire to address. Chemical peels are utilized for a variety of reasons — even out discoloration, minimize fine lines and wrinkles or diminish blemishes and uneven texture. The chemical solution is applied to the face to dissolve the built up skin cells of the epidermis. The result is a fresh, more youthful overall appearance, though the specific outcome will depend on the type of peel.

We offer superficial or light peels such as Glycolic, Salicylic and Lactic Acid peels, as well as “Event” peels for extra radiance prior to a big occasion.

Mild side effects may include temporary redness and peeling, but these are normal and should resolve within 2-10 days depending on the treatment. Multiple treatments are often recommended to enhance and then maintain the effectiveness of the peel.

Phenol Peels

Phenol peels are the deepest facial peels available and are used to treat more serious facial wrinkles or imperfections, often caused by sunlight and natural age. Results from these peels last much longer than other peels—sometimes as much as 20 years. The procedure requires no additional anesthesia, as the peel itself contains anesthetic properties, but even so, you may feel a slight stinging sensation as the peel is applied. An hour after application, Dr. Moore will brush a layer of petroleum jelly on the face to protect the peel; this should remain in place for a day or two, as directed. The entire process will take a couple of hours. If only a portion of the face is treated, the procedure will likely take less than half an hour.

After a phenol peel, the new outer layers of your face will be a deep pink, but this will evolve into a lighter, more normal complexion in about a week. Possible side effects include discomfort and puffiness. Because phenol peels have a bleaching effect, there is a possibility of uneven coloration in the skin. Those with darker skin coloring should not receive these peels. Additional risks include scarring and infection. Phenol peels should not be used on any other part of the body, and recovery time will last approximately a week or two, depending on each unique situation.

With all peels, it is important to use sun protection. With phenol peels, especially, it is imperative to shield skin from exposure to the sun. It is possible that individuals who receive deeper peels will no longer be able to tan. It is also important to keep in mind that chemical peels may not be effective for individuals with skin disorders. If you are considering a chemical peel, be sure to talk to Dr. Moore about any allergies or active skin issues you may have.
