Peel Back the Years with Chemical Peels

At Iorio Plastic Surgery & Medspa, we specialize in transforming your skin to reveal its most radiant self through our expertly applied aesthetic and medical-grade chemical peels. Designed to gently yet effectively remove the damaged outer layers of skin, our chemical peels uncover the vibrant, youthful skin cells lying just beneath the surface. Our peels are formulated with strong, but gentle components that deeply cleanse, exfoliate, and diminish the appearance of fine lines. For those seeking even more remarkable results, combining a chemical peel with microdermabrasion can lead to smoother, plumper skin and stimulate collagen growth for a truly rejuvenated appearance.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are specialized treatments administered by aesthetics practitioners that utilize various formulations tailored to your unique skin type. These treatments are designed to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and uneven skin texture and tone. By promoting the peeling of the outer layer of skin, chemical peels reveal the newer, fresher skin beneath, offering you a healthier and more radiant complexion. This process not only enhances your natural beauty but also revitalizes the skin’s overall appearance.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels work by applying a specially formulated solution to the skin, which causes the top layers to peel away, much like the natural peeling process that occurs after a sunburn. This controlled shedding of the outer layers uncovers new skin beneath that boasts a beautifully smooth texture and a rejuvenated appearance. To enhance and maintain the results of your cosmetic chemical peel, Dr. Iorio will recommend a selection of professional skin care products. These are chosen specifically to complement the treatment, ensuring that your skin not only looks revitalized immediately after the peel but continues to improve in health and appearance with ongoing care.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By removing the outermost layers of skin, chemical peels diminish the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, revealing smoother, younger-looking skin.

Improved Skin Texture and Tone

The process of chemical peeling promotes the growth of new skin, leading to a more even skin texture and tone and a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Acne and Scar Treatment

Chemical peels help to clear up acne by unclogging pores and can reduce the appearance of acne scars by encouraging skin regeneration.

Sun Damage Repair

These treatments can lessen the effects of sun damage, including dark spots and hyperpigmentation, by removing the damaged skin cells and promoting new cell growth.

Enhanced Skin Hydration

Certain types of chemical peels can improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture, leading to hydrated, plumper skin that feels as healthy as it looks.
