Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an effective, nonsurgical option to rejuvenate damaged, discolored, or lackluster skin. A chemical peel provides much-needed exfoliation to reveal a more even, vibrant layer of skin.

People with all skin types enjoy rejuvenation with chemical peels at our Westfield office.

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

The chemical solution used in a chemical peel contains one or more acids, depending on the type of peel. The acid in the solution removes dead skin cells and prompts the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

Chemical Peel Options

Your provider can help pick the right peel for your skin type and concern.

Trichloroacetic (TCA) Peel

This is a medium-depth skin peel and exfoliates deeper than a typical peel. TCA peels improve a variety of skin concerns and treat xanthelasma—growths or nodules that occur around the eyes.


The TCA CROSS technique uses much higher concentrations of trichloracetic acid and was developed for treating pitted (ice pick) acne scars.
