What is a Chemical Peel?
The chemical peel process, also known as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, is designed to improve the appearance of the face, neck, chest, hands and even arms and legs. A carefully selected mix of chemical peel solutions are applied to various areas of skin, which produce a separation and peeling of the skin’s outer layers. This stimulates the production of new skin from beneath.
Most chemical peels are performed as outpatient procedures at Afterglow Medical Aesthetics & Skin Care. Depending on your skin type and the desired results, we may recommend a superficial, medium, or deep chemical peel.
What Are the Types of Chemical Peels Available at Afterglow?
Our practice offers some of the most advanced chemical peels available, all of which can address a variety of common concerns. Our chemical peel treatment options include:
The Vitalize Peel® from SkinMedica® is one of the most potent chemical peels for the treatment of acne. It can also be very useful for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitalize Peel® procedures can also improve areas affected by sun damage, as well as enhance overall skin tone and texture. The Vitalize Peel® is a medical peel only available in a doctor’s office. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and, depending on your unique needs and goals, three to six peels over a period of several weeks are often recommended for the best results.
The Dermaceutic Peeling System
This line consists of two professional peeling systems that can improve a number of conditions. The Dermaceutic Peeling System is designed to beautifully rejuvenate the skin without using harsh chemical ingredients common to other types of skin peels. There are two main Dermaceutic peels available at our practice:
The Spot Peel treatment is focused primarily on pigmentation conditions, including:
- Pregnancy dark spots

This peel typically includes two in-office treatments and an eight-week personal care kit that you can use at home.

Milk Peels generally include four in-office treatments plus an eight-week at-home personal care kit.
