As the name suggests, chemical peels peel off old skin so new layers can grow in their place. This controlled removal ranges in strength, from superficial peels that use more mild acids to deep peels that penetrate several layers of skin. LEARN MORE ›

In August of this year, my skin was at its worst.  I have always had a problem with acne so my skin was very bumpy and rough, with large visible pores.  On my cheeks, chin, and forehead I had spots of hyper pigmentation.  I have used lots of different products to lighten my skin... READ MORE

I had my medium peel done by my plastic surgeon a few months after having done an upper eyelid lift and rhinoplasty, all of which i'd also recommend. It was a bit uncomfortable but not painful. It looked like a mild sunburn right after. I am 41 and have fair skin with some wrinkles and sun... READ MORE

I have hyperpigmentation from years of back acne and I am Indian American so I have brown skin. I went to this group b/c they were "experts" with ethnic skin. They told me the peels would definitely help and even though I also had hypertrophic (raised scars) they said it should work... READ MORE

Well I am on Day 4 and it looks terrible. I had someone stop me on the street yesterday and ask if I was OK... First off the dermatologist said very little about side effects or what to expect. She said "oh it will be red and then it will peel, and it can heal in 5-10 days". So I... READ MORE

My regular physician talked me into getting a chemical peel. It didn't hurt at all but I am not sure it was worth the money. My skin didn't peel or anything. I probably wouldn't get another one. I get more results by doing 10% chemical peels at home and prescription Retin-A. READ MORE

I went to a plastic surgeons office for a consultation regarding non surgical procedures and they said to start with a Revitapeel (I might be spelling it wrong). They wanted me do to three, one each month and I have to say that my skin looked wonderful after each one but got better each time... READ MORE

I think it depends on what chemical is used for the peel what results you get. I had a few treatments with TCA. They did nothing except turn my skin brown in some areas, and then peel. My skin didn't look fresher, brown spots weren't removed, my acne wasn't improved. I got zero results. I don't... READ MORE

I had a TCA peel with Dr. {edited} in Boston nearly ten years ago. I was badly burned and had to be hospitalized right away. I had raised scars that were so bad I couldn't work for six months and I still have scars and loss of pigmentation today. These patches have to be covered with... READ MORE

I am an esthetician. See great results with everyone. I recently started tca/glycolic for severe acne! I am 54 and people think I am in my 40's. I will always use the chemical peel for cell turnover. It is the cheapest most effective way to keep skin beautifly and smooth! READ MORE

This was a great procedure - literally make me look like myself again. (You know, instead of that old person in the mirror). the lines above my lips are gone, the wrinkles in my forehead, even the crow's feet are barely discernable. The enlarged pores are gone as well.  On the downside, you... READ MORE

I've had Botox, lipo-dissolve and many other procedures. I would say that my medical grade, office procedure chemical peel was only minimally helpful. It was basically like a good exfoliation (which, by the way, you can acheive with regular Miracle Whip placed on your skin and allowed to sit). READ MORE

I have become a true believer of the B-Liftx chemical peel system! As a light-skinned African-American woman, I didn't think that chemical peels would be right for me, but I was totally wrong. I suffered from cystic adult acne and had some dark spots and scarring from previous flare-ups.... READ MORE

I had three peels over a period of three months, intermingled with microdermabrasion. It was part of a whole package that was reasonably priced and performed by a very professional aesthetician at a reputable dermatological spa. (I wouldn't recommend going to any other kind of establishment.)... READ MORE

Two days after my TCA peel my face is swollen beyond recognition. I have blisters and dark brown skin. My eyes are almost swollen shut and I can barely open my mouth to eat! I wasn't prepared for the pain of the peel either! They start by cleaning your face with acetone! Yes, acetone! ... READ MORE

I have oily skin (bad genes) and have dealt with acne for most of my life. I spent my teen years till my 30s trying to find a regimen that would help my skin and keep me from breaking out. I’ve never had a lot of money to spend on it but I never outgrew the acne. I have started doing... READ MORE

Come on now people, we are not snakes. Nature did not make us that way, we don't have to shed our old skin and get a new shiny one. It is against the law of nature and it is dangerous. How good can applying acid on your face and then waiting for it to peel off be a great thing? I felt wierd... READ MORE

Chemical peel is a great way to get a new glowing skin. It might sound a little odd to get a treatment where you actually watch your skin peeling off, but the truth is that it really works and it takes away the old, dry and blemished skin and gives way to a new fresh and a glowing skin...

I'm very fair skinned and sunburn easily. With all sunburns I've suffered--especially as a kid because my stepmother thought frequent sunbathing/sunburning would result in a "base tan" that would eventually keep me from burning any more....NOT TRUE!!!--I concluded that I would start aging...

I had a TCA peel at my dermatologist’s office three months ago. I’d seen her previously for rosacea and acne scarring. When I discovered beauty forums online I learned about chemical peels and decided to ask her. She recommended it for my fine lines (I’m not getting any younger) but she... READ MORE

I bought a professional home chemical peel kit off the Internet. I tried it last week and hated it. If I could do it again (which I won’t) I would go to a real spa or doctor to have this done. I applied the peel in two layers. I was conservative with the first application but when I... READ MORE
