What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are aesthetic facial treatments specially formulated to lift away skin impurities and reveal healthier, smoother skin. At our North Texas integrated wellness center, medical director Dr. Anam Tharoo and her aesthetic team offer Vitality Institute (VI) chemical peels to improve skin tone and texture while reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and more. Chemical peels clear away damaged, dead skin cells through a blend of exfoliating solutions applied to the skin, which causes the top layer to slough off. As your skin heals, you should begin to see a clearer, smoother complexion. Book a consultation at MedSuite at Castle Hills in Carrollton, TX, and see if a chemical peel can help rejuvenate and refresh your skin!
Types of Chemical Peels
A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical technique performed to help brighten and clarify the skin on the face and neck. Dr. Tharoo offers VI chemical peels in multiple levels to meet our patients' skin care concerns.
Light peels remove the top layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your face a brighter appearance and smoother texture. We typically suggest having a light peel about once a month for ideal results.
Medium-depth peels penetrate further into the skin and are designed for patients who have deeper damage within the skin layers, such as more prominent facial lines and darker pigmentation concerns.
Deep peels are the strongest of the three types of peels and may be recommended for women with dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, entrenched acne scars, or deep scars.
Am I a candidate for a chemical peel?
Seeking the advice of a cosmetic specialist is the first part of the journey to smooth, healthy skin. A team member at MedSuite at Castle Hills can evaluate your skin during a consultation in our Carrollton, TX office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for optimal results. Chemical peel patients, both men and women, should have noticeable issues with their skin, like acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and more. We can recommend varying types of chemical peels to meet your needs.
Chemical Peels Reviews
"I had an amazing experience! Safety: I felt safe going in as it is clean, and practicing social distance. The entire team is amazing about masks and making you feel comfortable! Knowledge: I was looking for someone to teach me about what my skin needed. Dr. Tharoo and Amanda sat down with me, gave me details about my current skin condition and options. Most importantly they were open, honest, and provided preventive solutions along with options for more immediate results. We settled on a chemical peel. Overall; I recommend this practice! I think their customer service, knowledge and professionalism is phenomenal! If you are looking for someone to trust your skincare with- they are it!"- B.M. / Google / Nov 19, 2020

How Chemical Peels Work
Chemical peels are recommended according to your individual skin care needs and are performed in our tranquil, spa-like environment. Once the solution is expertly applied to your face by one of our medical aestheticians, it will begin to penetrate the layers of your skin, targeting your skin concerns and initiating cellular turnover. Post-treatment skin care instructions will then be provided by our team. Over the next several days, your skin will peel, shedding dead and damaged tissue to improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your complexion. After your first chemical peel with our North Dallas aesthetic team, Dr. Tharoo can guide you in deciding when to book your next facial treatment.
Chemical Peels FAQ
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
Which level of chemical peel is best for you will depend on your specific skin issues and aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation with Dr. Tharoo, she will help you choose which type of peel is right for your skin. Some factors you may consider are your overall health, the type of skin you have, how deep you want the peel to work, the time you can commit to recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. Initially, it is better to try a lighter peel and decide how you like the results. From there, you and Dr. Tharoo may alter your plan to decide the best type of peel for your needs.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the formula used, you might feel mild discomfort during the application process. If you have a lighter peel, you may feel a little discomfort, but this goes away quickly with the use of a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are better for deeper blemishes and longer-lasting results; however, they can be more uncomfortable. Numbing cream, skin medications, and ointments can be applied to minimize your discomfort during the treatment. Dr. Tharoo or a member of her team will discuss skin care after your chemical peel to extend your results.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
For even greater improvements to your skin, you may combine a chemical peel with another nonsurgical skin treatment at MedSuite at Castle Hills. In your consultation, be open with Dr. Tharoo when describing your skin and cosmetic issues so she can create a comprehensive treatment plan that delivers your best results. Your plan may include injectable wrinkle treatments (such as fillers or BOTOX) along with your chemical peel to rejuvenate your entire appearance.
