For our patients who want to stimulate the production of new collagen and correct a variety of visible skin concerns, we offer chemical peels and non-chemical peels in New Jersey and Philadelphia.

There are four basic chemical peels available:

  1. The basic glycolic acid peel to maintain collagen
  2. The stronger TCA (trichloroacetic acid or Obagi Blue Peel®) for pigment and collagen; this peel requires the longest period of downtime (7 days)
  3. The salicylic acid peel for acne reduction
  4. The ALA or aminolevulinic acid peel with light stimulation (IPL) for precancerous lesions, oily skin, acne and to optimize skin rejuvenation. This requires a 3 to 4 day downtime and may cause a windburned appearance and peeling.

All of these peels are medically proven to stimulate the production of collagen and are enhanced by daily maintenance skin care programs, which we can design specifically for you. We recommend that any patient undergoing a chemical peel at our New Jersey office discontinue use of Retin-A 1 to 2 days prior to their peel.

These peels are all available for the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.

Obagi Blue Peel

The blue peel is an in-office procedure designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin. This TCA chemical peel removes layers of dead skin cells and are replaced by healthier ones allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface. This is excellent for sun-damaged skin, fine lines and melasma.

Mini Skin Bright Peel

A superficial chemical peel used to brighten the skin and treat hyperpigmentation. The perfect peel for sun damaged skin and fine lines. A light peel designed to be done alone or in a series of three to six.
