How chemical peels can provide skin exfoliation for White Pearl Medical Spa patients

Patients in the Des Plaines, Northwest Suburbs, IL area looking to boost skin health and appearance can consult our licensed aesthetician about the benefits of treatments like chemical peels. Our chemical peels are designed to exfoliate the skin, revealing newer, rejuvenated skin from underneath. These treatments address various skin concerns, from overall skin texture and tone to hyperpigmentation and the early signs of aging.

What is a chemical peel?

Our White Pearl Medical Spa team defines the chemical peel as a treatment designed to boost the skin’s health while exfoliating dead skin cells for a more radiant and youthful appearance.

What types of peels are available at White Pearl Medical Spa?

White Pearl Medical Spa is excited to offer the following peels:

  • Glycolic Peel 20%. This mild peel uses glycolic acid to exfoliate the upper layer of the skin. It helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation, resulting in smoother and more radiant-looking skin. The glycolic peel 20% is best for patients with skin levels 1-4 on the Fitzpatrick scale.
  • Glycolic Peel 40%. This is a more aggressive peel that provides more dramatic improvements in the skin in a shorter period but requires additional recovery and downtime.
  • Lactic Peel 40%. The Lactic Peel is a gentle peel that utilizes lactic acid to exfoliate and moisturize the skin. It effectively improves the skin texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens dull skin. This peel is recommended for sensitive or dry skin types and is suitable for patients on the Fitzpatrick scale of 1-6.
  • TCA 10%. The TCA 10% is a medium-strength peel that uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove the top layer of skin. It helps improve skin texture, reduce pigmentation concerns and acne scarring, and stimulate collagen production for firmer, youthful-looking skin.
  • TCA 20%. The TCA 20% is a stronger version of the TCA 10% peel, with a higher concentration of trichloroacetic acid. It provides more dramatic results and suits those with deeper wrinkles, acne scarring, and sun damage.
  • Jessner’s Peel. The Jessner’s Peel is a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol. It is a strong peel that improves the skin’s texture, reduces hyperpigmentation, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This peel is recommended for those with acne-prone or oily skin.
