Chemical Peels

A chemical peel utilizes a special solution to improve skin texture by removing the damaged outer layers. Chemical peels increase cellular turnover and refine the outermost layers of the skin. This in turn reduces fine lines and wrinkles, eliminates brown sun damaged areas, and leads to skin brightening and tightening. Specific peels may be used to treat melasma, acne, and even precancerous lesions. If you are in need of a chemical peel and live in the Minneapolis area, call Tareen Dermatology and make an appointment today.


Glycolic Peel

Before and After Two Glycolic PeelsGlycolic peels will address and get rid of dead skin so new skin can grow! This peel removes the top layer of dead cells on your skin, revealing a new layer that is smoother-textured and more vibrant looking. It will help address those fine lines, minor skin discoloration such as “age spots” and dry patches. It is useful for treating acne and for removing or minimizing old acne scars.

For a few days after treatment, your skin will look slightly reddened and it may peel a bit. It will also be dry – a side effect that can be relieved with moisturizer. You’ll need to wear sunscreen for several weeks, as your skin will be more vulnerable than usual to the sunburn.


Salicylic Peel

Before and After 3 Salicylic Peels
The Salicylic Peel is designed for the treatment of acne vulgaris, post-inflamatory hyper pigmentation, melasma, and oily skin with large pores.
It also improve general complexion and optimize skin appearance.
Tareen Dermatology suggests to allow for five days of “social downtime” following your peel. You should expect mild-to-moderate and possibly excessive peeling depending on the strength. You will also need to keep your face coated with an occlusive moisturizing product and broad spectrum, physical block with SPF.
For three days prior to receiving a Salicylic Peel, you should discontinue the use of:
-Vitamin A derivatives (tretinoin, Retin-A, Renova, Avita, Differin, Tazorac, retinol)
-Products containing hydroxy acid (glycolic,lactic, salicylic acids), and Benzoyl peroxide.

The main categories of chemical peels are:

  • Alpha Hydroxy (AHA)
    AHA peels are derived from fruit acids (ie citrus fruits or sugar cane). They gently exfoliate the outer damaged layers of skin while stimulating the production of collagen. AHA peels are scientifically proven to reduce discoloration, smooth skin and treat fine lines. There is minimal down time with AHA peel – typically just a few days of redness and some flaking.
  • Beta Hydroxy (BHA)
    BHA peels typically utilize salicylic acid. These peels are great for oily skin prone to acne. The salicylic acid is taken up specifically by oil glands. This gently cleanses the blocked oil glands and reduces trapped bacteria. You will notice a significant difference in your acne and mild difference in your discoloration within 5-7 days. BHA peels typically have minimal peeling. In fact, many of my patients call me saying that they are not peeling (although they acknowledge that their acne and discoloration is improved!). This is because the peeling is actually going on within the blocked oil glands of the skin.
  • Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)
    TCA is categorized as a medium depth peel as it treats the deeper layers of the skin (the dermis). TCA peels lead to significant redness and peeling–however after 1-2 weeks the results are spectacular.
