Chemical Peels Philadelphia

Chapin Aesthetics has a wide array of peels to choose from, depending on your skin type.  This superficial form of chemical exfoliation provides multiple benefits to the skin including:

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decreased signs of hyperpigmentation, sun damage and age spots
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Brighter, clearer more youthful looking skin

Our medical aesthetic specialists will recommend which peel and the number of treatments is most appropriate to address your skin concerns.  Their comprehensive treatment plan will include how many weeks apart to perform each peel and which medical grade care products would complement your peel for optimal results.

Glycolic Peels
Glycolic acid is part of the alpha hydroxy family of natural ingredients which is derived from sugar cane. These superficial chemical peels remove the top layer of skin to trigger collagen and elastin production. Glycolic peels improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin discoloration and texture.  When this outer layer is removed, a new layer of skin becomes visible. We offer varying strengths of glycolic acid peels that rejuvenate the skin to treat a variety of skin concerns.

Obagi® Radiance Peel
This exclusive blend of salicylic acid, lactic acid and glycolic acid provide a gentle but effective facial chemical peel.  Tighter, smoother, and brighter skin can be achieved immediately after just one treatment. Obagi Radiance Peel can be utilized to improve patient outcomes for a range of skin concerns, including photo damage, acne scarring, melasma and enhanced texture and tone. The uppermost damaged skin layers are exfoliated, leaving your skin fresh, renewed, and radiant with little to no downtime.

SkinMedicai® Peels
SkinMedica® offers three levels of medical grade chemical peels to effectively address individual skin needs and concerns.  These peels deliver remarkable results and can help you achieve clearer, brighter and more youthful looking skin.

SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel®
Give your skin an instant glow with this superficial, zero down time chemical peel.   This is the perfect choice to achieve a radiant look prior to an event or to simply brighten the appearance of your skin.  This non-invasive peel utilizes alpha-hydroxy acids (mandelic and malic acid) in conjunction with phytic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol to maximize skin rejuvenating effects without irritation.

SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel®
This medium strength peel targets sign of aging, melasma, sun damaged and acne prone skin.  The proprietary blend of ingredients achieves improvement in texture, tone, pigmentation, acne, melasma and collagen production.  For optimal correction the Vitalize peel should be performed monthly until the desired result is achieved.  Skin will begin to shed two days after the peel is applied and will peel for approximately three days.
