Chemical peels are one of the most popular skin treatments at Karmalite Medical Esthetic and our doctors and skin specialists will suggest the best for your needs and use combination treatments for anti-aging, acne, hyperpigmentation, and many other skin concerns.


A chemical peel involves the application of a customized chemical solution to the skin to prompt a gradual peel of the treatment area. Once the treated skin has peeled away, new, smoother skin is revealed to restore a more youthful complexion.


Chemical peels are most often performed on the face. Skin on the backs of the hands, the chest, and the neck can also be rejuvenated with chemical peels.


Our doctors and skin specialists uses an assortment of peels to address several chronic skin conditions. Melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles can all be improved with chemical peel treatments. Chemical peels are an excellent means of preparing the skin for laser resurfacing treatments and improving the outcome and viability of those procedures as well.




Karmalite offers three types of chemical peels that differ in terms of the depth of exfoliation, type of chemical solution used, and the strength of the chemical solution.

Based on your skin type, skin tone, and overall aesthetic goals, your doctor will recommend a superficial, medium, or deep chemical peel:


Superficial peels: A mild chemical peel may include alpha-hydroxy acid or salicylic acid that gently removes the outermost damaged layer of skin. Rough skin can be beautifully softened, and active acne can be treated with light peels.


Medium peels: Glycolic acid, PRX T-33 or trichloroacetic acid is used during a medium peel to remove the outermost layers of skin as well as slightly deeper layers. A medium chemical peel can be perfect for addressing age spots, acne scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and poor skin tone.


Deep peels: A deep chemical peel makes use of TCA or phenol-based solutions to remove multiple damaged layers of skin. A deep peel can do wonders for improving the appearance of facial scarring, as well as wrinkles, folds, creases, fine lines, furrows, and mild skin laxity.
