    Chemical Peels

    Over time, our skin begins to diminish, ultimately losing its youthful glow as collagen production lessens. This is the protein that helps support the dermis and prevent sagging or wrinkling. Environmental elements like UV rays, pollutants and dietary habits also play a major role in skin health.

    Chemical peels gently remove dead skin cells of the epidermis exposing the younger, healthier skin underneath, and increase cell turn over, making this the perfect treatment for acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, sun-damaged, mature skin and dry to oily complexions. There are a number of medical grade peels out there which range in level of intensity depending on your skin type, and skincare concerns.

    Dr. Casey, and our licensed skincare practitioners, incorporate only the best medical grade products for your facial rejuvenation needs like the VI Peel and Theraplax salicylic acid peels.


    The VI Facial Peel

    With the VI Peel, patients receive a medical grade product that reverses and prevents skin aging and acne spots. Unlike other chemical peels, the VI Peel does not require skin preconditioning. The chemical peel is simply applied using a swab to evenly coat the solution. After 1-2 minutes it is removed by a neutralizing solution and a moisturizer is applied.

    Within three days of your VI Peel, the upper layer of the skin will start to shed. This process is much gentler to the skin, unlike facial peels of the past that literally burn the skin off. This makes the VI Peel much more patient friendly and good for all skin types.

    Despite the gentle approach, the VI Peel is a very powerful acid containing salicylic acid, Retin A and vitamin A, which helps to soothe the skin while the solution achieves that deep penetration.

    Within seven days, the results from the peel should be substantial, yielding improvements in skin tone, texture, age spots, acne and reducing wrinkles. In addition, patients should also notice a vibrant, healthy glow to their skin.

    The Theraplex Salicylic Acid Facial Peel

    Theraplex salicylic acid facial peels offer a versatile, in-office surface peel that is also safe and effective on all skin types. Theraplex is a mild peel that doesn’t penetrate as deep. This peel is a great way to remove old, dead skin cells from the outer layers and promote the growth of new cells while rejuvenating your appearance. It also works well to treat acne.

    Get The Most Out Of Your Chemical Peel

    We advise having a chemical peel done 3-4 weeks before your cosmetic surgical procedure such as a facelift and neck lift – and any laser treatment. This will jumpstart the skin’s cellular turnover and collagen building.

    Once a chemical peel is done, our licensed skincare practitioner will advise you on the benefits of using a quality skincare system at home, with personalized product recommendations, to maximize your results and maintain proper skin health.

    Casey Cosmetic Surgery offers only the highest grade, potent product lines to support your skin transformation and maintenance. We carry Obagi Medical and Obagi Clinical skin care products that can be integrated into your daily skincare routine to reduce redness and reduce the signs of premature aging with soothing botanical extracts.

    It is important to read all post care instructions. We strongly advise limiting sun exposure as much as possible for the first 3-4 days. It is important to be mindful of the complications that can arise from improper sun protection during the healing time after a medical grade chemical peel. You’re exposing vulnerable immature cells so you must make sure they don’t get damaged from UV rays. Apply sunscreen daily on the face and neck.
