At Hermosa Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of medical-grade chemical peels, including glycolic acid peels, TCA peels, and the Obagi Blue Peel® System, to help rejuvenate and refresh the skin. With approximately 20 minutes of treatment, patients can obtain more youthful and healthier skin texture and more uniform skin tone. Our chemical peels can be used in conjunction with other treatments offered at our Albuquerque practice, such as BOTOX® injections, lip augmentation, and laser hair removal, for the most effective results.
Glycolic Acid Peels
Glycolic acid peels are the gentlest type of chemical peel offered at our practice. These chemical peels, made of acid derived from sugar cane, help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and exfoliate rough, damaged layers of skin to leave the patient with a smoother, fresher complexion. Glycolic acid also evens out skin tone and helps promote collagen and elastin production, which is important for healthy skin.
TCA Chemical Peels
Offering more dramatic results than glycolic acid peels, TCA chemical peels are made of trichloroacetic acid and help reveal brighter, younger-looking skin. Trichloroacetic acid exfoliates layers of dead skin cells to lighten acne scars and skin discolorations and produce more even skin tone. This chemical peel also helps to reduce the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles. For the best results, TCA chemical peels should be performed over a period of several months.
Obagi Blue Peel® System
Our practice is pleased to feature the Obagi Blue Peel® System, one of the most advanced chemical peel solutions for your skin. The Obagi Blue Peel® treatment can be customized completely based on the unique needs and goals of each individual patient. The peel is a combination of trichloroacetic acid and a specially formulated blue paste that work together to exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal smooth, silky skin underneath. The Obagi Blue Peel® System is used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm® skincare product line and works wonders for those with acne scars, freckles, and other skin discolorations, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
