A chemical peel involves the application of an acidic, topical solution to the patient's face that acts as an exfoliating agent.

Once the old layer of skin is peeled, a new, fresh layer is encouraged to grow, promoting healing and restoration in the patient's face. This can be an effective treatment method to address skin concerns like acne, wrinkles, scars, discoloration, and other blemishes. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi offers several chemical peel brands and options at his practice, Moradi MD, in Vista, CA. Our highly-trained Aestheticians perform all peels and customize each service to the patient's individual need.

During/After The Procedure

The chemical application for a peel follows similar steps. The only difference will be the type of acid solution used, the amount applied, and the period of time that it is left on the skin. Once the chemical reaches the target skin layers, a neutralizer will be applied to immediately stop the effects of the acid. Downtime depends on what kind of peel is done.

There is next to no downtime for mild peels but for deeper peels, the patient can be in a healing process up to 14 days. After the treatment, it is important that the patient allow the peeling process to occur naturally and do not assist in peeling or pulling at the skin. It is also extremely important to avoid sun exposure for a period of time after the treatment.
