Chemical Peels at Arta Dermatology, Newport Beach

Woman with beautiful face Chemical peels are some of the most customizable treatments in dermatology. Used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions effectively, a chemical peel may be based on lactic acid, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid. The ultimate goal of a chemical peel is to encourage regeneration of skin cells through elimination of the existing cells.

Because Dr. Farshidi can manipulate the variables of a chemical peel, this treatment is tailored to meet the specific needs of your skin. The variables of each peel include the type of acid-base used, the concentration of that acid, and the amount of time the chosen solution remains on the skin.

With a chemical peel suited to your skin type and condition, you may experience:

  • Clean pores.
  • Improvement in skin tone and texture.
  • Reversal of sun damage.
  • Relief from chronic acne.
  • Brightening of skin affected by hyper-pigmentation.
  • Decrease in the appearance of age spots or melasma

Our chemical peels provide our patients with an affordable, effective way to rejuvenate the skin. Every person is unique and will have a different experience with a customized chemical peel. Because we perform only the mildly aggressive peels, most of our patients are able to resume normal activities immediately after a comfortable, spa-like treatment. The stronger the peel, the longer visible side effects last, such as peeling or redness. However, the process is typically complete within a few days.

Chemical Peels - Vipeel ViPeel is new chemical peel system that offers the same results as a regular chemical peel without some of the undesirable aspects. This system offers dramatic results without the pain associated with other peels with only a recovery period of a few days. In addition to this, ViPeel can be used on darker skin types without the risk of complications associated with previous chemical peels. With just a single ViPeel treatment, your skin will experience considerable repair and rejuvenation. Following a chemical peel, the skin should be protected from harmful UV rays. This can be accomplished with the application of a SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen. Additional protection is possible by wearing a wide brimmed hat, or avoiding direct sunlight for a few days. Taking these steps optimizes the rejuvenating results of your peel.

Chemical peels are an ideal form of proactive skin care. Lighter peels may be received once or twice a month, with medium peels performed once or twice a year.
