Chemical Peels

Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona performs a wide variety of chemical peels including glycolic acid, TCA and Jessner acid peels of differing strengths. A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. These chemical peels, that are performed by one of our providers, exfoliate the top layer of the skin and encourage skin renewal to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, acne and texture. Chemical peels are non-invasive and usually require minimal recovery time. Check out our Skin Fitness Pyramid and learn about skincare options from prevention to reversal!

Glycolic Peel

Chemical peels are treatments that use an acid solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. This causes controlled damage at various levels, both superficially and deep for dermal structure renewal. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. Chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of the skin.

Modified Jessner Peel

A Modified Jessner peel is a popular medium-depth chemical peel that works to improve skin health by helping remove and heal skin damage that is more extensive. It was designed to remove superficial layers of the skin, dry out active acne, dislodge blackheads and improve the overall appearance of sun-damaged, acne prone or aging skin.

ZO Skin Health Ossential Stimulator Peel Treatment

The ZO Stimulator Peel is the perfect “lunchtime” peel with no downtime. This revolutionary beta/alpha acid spa peel stimulates cellular turnover, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving overall skin tone, texture and clarity without downtime.

ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel

The ZO 3-STEP PEEL is a potent peel that maximizes texture improvement and produces longer lasting results than ordinary peels. Peeling is mild, with minimal downtime. Designed for acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores and dullness. Promotes softer, smoother skin.

ZO Controlled Depth Peel

Dr. Zein Obagi, the inventor of the original Obagi Blue Peel, introduces the Controlled Depth Peel. ZO Controlled Depth Peel is a robust in-office peel that provides dermal and epidermal stimulation and stabilization for a faster recovery and excellent results. This peel utilizes a concentration of trichloracetic acid (TCA) buffered for different skin types, which allows physicians to precisely tailor treatment for a range of skin conditions.
