We offer a wide range of peels from light “lunchtime” peels with minimal to no downtime to deeper peels for those who require a deeper rejuvenation, all in the comfort of our Beverly Hills Dermatology office.
Chemical peels are a great solution to improve and smooth the texture of skin. During a facial chemical peel, a solution (Beta Peel or TCA) is applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells, leaving the skin looking healthy and glowing. The peel formula and strength differs from patient to patient, so Dermatologist Dr. Goldman or Dr. Dubow will suggest the best possible chemical peel face treatment for your specific needs.
Goldman Dubow Dermatology Group uses several different acids for chemical peels in Beverly Hills in order to give patients the best possible results. The mildest peel is the Beta Peel, which consists of 20% or 30% salicylic acid. After chemical peel, peeling normally starts in 2 days and is generally completed in 4-5 days, but visible peeling is usually minimal. The Beta Peel is ideal for those with acne concerns or someone looking for exfoliation to make the skin softer and smoother with a nice glow.
For skin that requires a more aggressive peel, stronger TCA peels can be used to treat deeper pigmentation issues (brown spots) and fine lines, as it is resurfaces the skin. After 2 days, the skin starts to darken and takes on a rough appearance. The skin usually starts to peel around day 3, and is often very dramatic in some areas. The peeling will last about 2-3 days and the skin can stay light pink for up to a couple weeks after. The whole peeling processing generally takes 7+ days.
Many patients also get laser treatments, including Vbeam treatments or Fraxel repair treatments, to maximize the results of the chemical peel and achieve optimal skin rejuvenation. As we are a full-service Dermatology practice in Los Angeles, we can offer this combination therapy to you.
A: Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, skin discoloration, age spots, dull skin texture, and mild scars by applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin and stimulate new skin growth. The new skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in color. Additionally, many patients get a chemical peel for acne outbreaks or a deeper chemical peel for acne scars.
A: Salicylic acid is the most common Beta Hydroxy Acid used in chemical peels. Salicylic acid helps loosen and remove damaged skin cells, stimulates new cell production and increases collagen formation. Salicylic acid peels are great for treating acne. Goldman Dubow Dermatology Group, expert Los Angeles chemical peel dermatologists, can help you decide which chemical peel option will best suit your needs.
A: A chemical peel is performed in the Goldman Dubow Dermatology Group office in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles by one of our two experienced physicians. First your skin will be cleansed with an agent that removes excess oils. Next, the peel will be applied to your face, neck and/or chest. The amount of time the peel stays on varies from patient to patient.
A: Light, superficial peels are usually done several times over the course of several months, while deeper peels generally only need to be performed once to achieve the desired effects. Depending on the strength of your peel, a patient may only need one treatment while others may require several chemical peels in Beverly Hills.
A: Generally, the strong peels have longer lasting effects. It is important to keep your skin protected from the sun with a high quality broad based sunscreen, so that your results can last for several months to years. If you follow a protective skin care regimen, the results of your peel will generally last longer than patients who don't follow proper upkeep following a Beverly Hills chemical peel.
A: Downtime will differ depending on the strength of the chemical peel. For a light chemical peel, expect 4-5 days of very light peeling. This peeling is generally barely visible so you will be able to go about your daily activities without any worries. However, a deep chemical peel will require more downtime. It can take over a week for your skin to stop peeling, and your skin can remain slightly pink for a few weeks.
A: Chemical peels costs vary depending on the issues a patient is trying to treat. Call our office to schedule a consultation to come in for a consultation with Dr. Goldman or Dr. Dubow and find out what chemical peel will be best for you and your chemical peel cost.
A: Microdermabrasion works well on superficial skin issues, where as a chemical peel is effective at treating more serious skin problems.
