How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

While every chemical peel is different, they’re all designed to help repair the dermal layers where damage is most obvious. Some do this slowly over time and with repeated treatments, while a stronger facial peel removes the top dermal layers within a single session. Once the skin has healed, the complexion appears younger, smoother, and even.

At Twin Ports Dermatology, we’re pleased to offer our clients the following chemical peel treatments:

  • Modified Jessner Peels (with or without retinol boost)
  • Rhonda Allison Peels
  • Light peels
  • Medium peels
