Chemical Peels

Are you looking for a skin peel to revitalize your complexion? The chemical peels offered at our San Luis Obispo center involve the application of mild acids in a controlled manner to help you get that rejuvenated glow. This might sound a little scary, but at most these peels feel like a slight tingling sensation on your skin. Here at Coastal Dermatology + Aesthetics, we’re happy to provide this effective and convenient solution to your unique skin woes. Stop on by during your lunch break! These peels can be administered quickly within the comfort of our center and offer you both a relaxing and rewarding experience.

What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are made of a range of different nutrients and acids. Glycolic peels are the most common, but there are also trichloroacetic, lactic, carbolic, and salicylic peel alternatives. All of these acids are safe and act as exfoliating agents, ridding your skin of dead cells and debris. When you visit us, our team will create an individualized skin peel formulated to your specific needs. Our peels range in intensity from mild to deep, tackling skin issues both small and large.

What Do Chemical Peels Do?

Chemical peels are a great go-to solution for hyperpigmentation problems. Sun damage, acne, and blemishes are all commonly treated via this exfoliation method. Your chemical peel can be adjusted based on your specific needs. If you have sun damage, acne, or age spots, a mild acid may be a great choice. If you’re struggling with rosacea, melasma, or telangiectasia you may benefit more from a deeper chemical peel. At Coastal Dermatology + Aesthetics, we offer peels for the following conditions:

Are Chemical Peels Safe?

Chemical peels are a safe method for exfoliating the skin and rejuvenating your look. The chemical peels available at our clinic take roughly 15-30 minutes to apply. During the application process, you are free to relax while your peel goes to work. As your skin is exfoliated, you may feel a slight tingling sensation that usually lasts about 5-10 minutes. In some cases, you may leave with some mild irritation after a peel, but this side effect will subside after a short while as your skin renews itself.

Why Choose Coastal Dermatology + Aesthetics for Chemical Peels?

At Coastal Dermatology + Aesthetics, we always take the time to get to know our visitors on a personal level. We want to know what your goals are and how we can help you. When you come into our center, we will take the time to discuss your chemical peel options and offer our expert suggestions based on your specific needs. At the end of your session, we welcome you to stop by and see us again.

What Results Can I Expect?

Mild peels offer a nice radiance and glow with no downtime. The best part of choosing a mild peel is that you can repeat it every four weeks until you reach your skin care goals. Medium and deep chemical peels dig a bit deeper and may cause some slight swelling, redness, and sensitivity. Afterward, your skin will peel over a period of 7-14 days. This process is completely normal, but if you have any concerns, you are always welcome to get in touch with our team for peace of mind. As your skin goes through its renewal process, you’ll need to avoid direct sunlight for several months after a chemical peel since your new skin will be fragile and prone to irritation.
