General Information:
Medium depth chemical peels are an effective skincare treatment designed to penetrate deeper into the skin compared to superficial peels. They are ideal for addressing more pronounced skin issues such as moderate sun damage, deeper wrinkles, and significant pigmentation irregularities. At Dermatology of Virginia, our medium depth peels are carefully tailored to each patient’s skin type and concerns, offering a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion.

How Do Medium Depth Chemical Peels Work? Medium depth peels typically use trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or a combination of acids to reach the middle layers of the skin. This level of penetration encourages the shedding of damaged skin cells, promoting the regeneration of new skin. The process not only improves the skin’s appearance but also stimulates collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and firmness.

Common Conditions Treated with Medium Depth Peels:

  • Moderate to severe sun damage
  • Deeper wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Uneven skin texture and tone

What to Expect During Your Chemical Peel Treatment:

  1. Consultation: Our skincare experts will conduct a thorough assessment to determine if a medium depth peel is suitable for your skin concerns and goals.
  2. Procedure: The peel solution is applied to the skin for a specific duration to ensure optimal penetration. You may experience a tingling or warming sensation during the application.
  3. Recovery: Medium depth peels have a longer recovery period compared to superficial peels, often ranging from 5 to 7 days. The skin will initially turn red and may swell, followed by peeling and flaking as the new skin emerges.

Post-Treatment Care: After the peel, it’s crucial to follow a specific skincare regimen to support healing. This includes avoiding sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and applying sunscreen daily. Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results.
