Chemical Peels in Rancho Cucamonga

Give your skin a second chance with an expertly administered chemical peel at Inland Cosmetic Surgery & Ahava Medspa

Chemical peels are made up of a variety of exfoliating agents, usually acids, that are carefully applied to the skin to safely remove the top layer of dull, damaged skin. This allows your fresh, healthy skin to shine through, reducing the appearance of fine lines, improving scarring, minimizing sun damage and uneven skin tone, and giving your skin an overall healthy, beautiful glow.

Depending on your needs and the nature of your concerns, one of our experienced medical providers will recommend the right chemical peel for you. At Ahava, all skin treatment plans are directed by one of our cosmetic surgeons, so you can be confident that you are receiving safe, effective treatment. Chemical peels utilize a variety of ingredients and are classified by how deeply they penetrate the skin into three main categories: superficial, medium, and deep.

Superficial chemical peels

Superficial peels affect only the topmost layer of skin, the epidermis, and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the skin color and tone. Patients love these mild peels because they can be performed during your lunch break and cause minimal redness and flaking.

Medium depth chemical peels

Medium depth peels affect both the epidermis (top layer of skin) as well as the dermis (deeper middle layer of skin) for a more dramatic rejuvenation. A 25-35% TCA solution is the most commonly used medium depth peel used in our office. It is usually performed under light sedation or under general anesthesia when combined with other procedures such as facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery. The skin turns brown in color and then flakes off over the course of about a week. Following this peeling process, a new layer of skin is exposed that has a smoother texture, better tone, and fewer fine lines. With medium depth peels, you’ll be provided with a selection of special skincare products at least 4-6 weeks prior to the peel to prepare youu skin for treatment.

Deep chemical peels

Deep peels provide the most dramatic results because they penetrate the deeper layer of dermis and usually use phenols. These peels require a longer recovery and are suited for patients with severe sun damage and wrinkling on skin that cannot be corrected with other methods of peeling. While deeper peels do require a bit more downtime, and you’ll experience a more intense peeling, most patients think it is worth it for the quality of their results and skin rejuvenation.
