Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a gentle, minimally-invasive treatment that utilizes varying formulations and strengths of chemical solutions to exfoliate dry and damaged layers of the skin. Chemical peels are among the most effective nonsurgical treatments for addressing common skin conditions and aging concerns. At the Celestial Institute of Plastic Surgery, our chemical peel treatments can drastically improve both your skin’s appearance and texture for a complexion that looks and feels younger, healthier and more radiant.

Our Chemical Peel Treatments:

ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel

The ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel utilizes a blend of exfoliants, retinol and multi-action agents to help improve your skin’s health and reduce the appearance of several common signs of aging. The peel is formulated with salicylic acid, lactic acid and citric acid to exfoliate your skin and promote cellular turnover for a refreshed and radiant complexion. As a lunchtime peel, this treatment is quick enough to complete during your lunch hour with no need for downtime afterward.

The ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel works to:

Exfoliate the skin to soften and rejuvenate rough or dry skin texture
Improve the appearance of sun spots, age spots and freckles
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Restore uneven pigmentation
Provide antioxidant protection to increase skin tolerance

While most patients will observe noticeable improvements to their skin with a single peel treatment, we recommend a series of three to four peels spaced two weeks apart for the most optimal rejuvenation results.

ZO 3-Step Peel

The ZO 3-Step Peel is the only multifunctional epidermal peel designed to provide long-lasting skin benefits in a three-step treatment. The peel utilizes concentrations of retinol, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid and lactic acid blend to stimulate new collagen production and reveal smoother, tighter and more youthful-looking skin.

The ZO 3-Step Peel works to:

  • Reduce the appearance of acne scarring
  • Improve skin laxity
  • Balance uneven skin tone and texture
  • Minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduce the size of large pores

Following your ZO 3-Step Peel treatment, your complexion will begin to slough off dead skin cells two to three days after your treatment to reveal healthier layers. Your skin will be especially sensitive to UV damage, so you will want to avoid direct sun exposure for at least seven to ten days following your treatment. While one treatment will yield radiant results, we recommend a series of three to four treatments to reveal optimal anti-aging results.

Obagi Blue Radiance Peel

The Obagi Blue Radiance Peel is a customizable peel treatment that can be applied in varying layers to target your specific skin concerns. Using a blend of salicylic acid, glycolic acid and lactic acid, the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel effectively exfoliates the damaged surface layers of the skin to reveal the flawless renewed and refreshed layers beneath.

The Obagi Blue Radiance Peel works to:

  • Remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface
  • Improve uneven skin tone and texture
  • Reduce active acne and acne scarring
  • Soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Restore skin discoloration

One Obagi Blue Radiance Peel will yield noticeable improvements to your skin’s complexion; however, we recommend a series of three to six treatments to achieve your most optimal results. The number of treatments you will require will depend on the specific skin concern you wish to address.
