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.
Chemical Peels Reviews
"I did a Jessner peel last week and Miss Magdalena was taking care of me! She is a very gorgeous, sweet, experienced, and patient aesthetician I met ever! She used her smile and golden heart to comfort me and encourage me during the whole process. She totally understands that it's my first time to do the chemical peel away from my home country! To me, she is a very professional and nice lady and I definitely will recommend her to my friends in the future when they have any skin problem! I am so excited now and looking forward to seeing the result soon !!"- C.L. / Yelp / Oct 28, 2017
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi for several years now for Botox I love Dr. Moradi and Veronica. Dr. Moradi does a great job with Botox and Filler. I have had many people try and talk me into filler and I finally let Dr. Moradi do some at his recommendation last year and have been extremely happy with the natural looking results. I love Magdalina, and I love going to her for facial, peels, epi-pen, and microdermabrasion she does an amazing job. I especially like the epi-pen, and the results from her treatments and product recommendations have made a huge impact on my skin. When I tell people my age(58) they are surprised, I must give credit to Dr. Moradi and Magdalena for making me look younger. Jessica is also at Dr. Moradi's office and she is a sweetheart she does IPL, dot laser and laser hair removal. She does a great job and I have been very happy with the results of my treatments with her. I have never felt pressured to do anything. I believe that Dr. Moradi is very cautious and meticulous about his work, and I trust his skill and opinion. Everyone at Dr. Moradi's office are friendly and professional. I look forward to my appointments and am thrilled with the results of all the treatments I have had done. I am so glad my friend recommended Dr. Moradi to me. Sincerely, Tonya"- T.P. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2015
"I went in to consult with Josalynn and she offered her unbiased opinion and did not try to up-sell me on anything. She was respectful, knowledgeable, and professional. Based on my skin concerns, we decided on a mid-level chemical peel to get rid of mainly dry, discolored, and dull-looking skin. I've received many compliments after one treatment. I am anxious to see how my skin will look after the second. I trust Josaylnn's work and will definitely be back to receive more treatments. Satisfied customer :)"- N.M. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2020

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.
