What is a chemical peel in the Dallas area?
A chemical peel, available to Dallas-area patients seeking improved skin texture, works by removing the outermost layers of skin, which can become damaged by environmental factors and more, including sun exposure, acne, and natural aging. The procedure involves a chemical solution that can smooth and refine skin in a variety of places, including the neck, décolletage and hands, though chemical peels are used mostly on the face. Uneven skin tone, wrinkles, spots and scars can all be addressed by a non-invasive chemical peel.
A chemical peel can help improve:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age and liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular pigmentation
- Rough scaly patches
- Sun-damaged skin

Our esthetician will be able to consult with you at our Frisco, TX, location to figure out which type of peel is best for your skin type and needs – and when it’s best to do it.
Aftercare/downtime for a peel always depends on the type of peel, and typically includes a gentle cleanser and avoiding any other acids in product used over the next few days. Don’t forget to use your sunscreen product as well – as skin care in Frisco needs extra protection from the Texan sun. Our esthetician will also discuss these with you depending on which peel was performed.
