Look Younger With Chemical Peels
We all will experience the signs of aging from different factors including pollution, sun exposure, and smoking. Chemical peels can also improve:
Discoloration, such as liver and age spots, and freckles
Acne and acne scars
Fine lines and wrinkles
Sun damaged skin
Chemical peels use different substances and solutions to remove different layers of skin. The different types are based on how deeply the peel will affect the skin and the type of chemicals used. Essentially, there are three types of chemical peels:
Superficial or light peels that utilizes the mildest form of solutions and are effective on all skin times.
Medium peels go deeper into the skin’s layers. Trichloraecetic acid is the main agent used for these types of peels, which essentially cause a mild second-degree burn.
Deep or heavy peels penetrate several layers of the skin, again causing a second-degree burn. These peels use phenol. These peels are not used on darker skin types, as they bleach the skin.
"overdue five star review for Vanessa and the friendly staff. Incredibly satisfied with my procedure done by the talented Vanessa Bennington. I loved how informative she was during my entire visit but still made me feel completely comfortable to ask any questions or concerns that I had. I left feeling so beautiful and happy!!! We did some botox and two syringes (one voluma, one juvederm) to help enhance my cheeks, lips and chin. It’s been nearly 7 months and I’m still happy with my results. I may be due for my second treatment of botox but that’s expected. I wouldn’t even waste anymore time, look no further. Highly recommend her!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Sep 03, 2021

"I love Dr. Hicks & her staff. She took the time to listen to me and really tried to help me. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. I've already recommended them to my friends... and I've left my former cosmetic/dermatology group...and no going back!"- A.M. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr. Hix-Hernandez and her medical team were absolutely amazing. I recently had a BBL with lipo done and the experience was seamless and everyone was so attentive to my needs. I chose Beleza per a family member’s recommendation and after tons of research. It is so important to stress to ensure you do research and select and board certified plastic surgeon if doing a BBL. Dr. Hix-Hernandez had the credentials and experience I was seeking in a surgeon. I will absolutely recommend Beleza as they were also extremely prompt and professional from beginning to end. Sincerely, A very happy patient 🍑🍑"- M.M. / Google / Jul 24, 2021
The Chemical Peel Procedure
The skin will be cleaned, and the chemical applied with a brush, gauze, or similar applicators. Depending on the chemical and deepness, it is left on for several minutes. Water or alcohol is then used to neutralize the chemical reaction.
Recovery and aftercare will depend on the type of peel you received. You will be regularly cleansing your skin to promote healing, as well as moisturizing. You should also avoid sun exposure. Sunscreen will be required after the peeling has stopped, as the new, exposed skin is more easily damaged by the sun.
If you think you would like to see the results of a chemical peel, consult with a knowledgeable, experienced esthetician to discuss the options that will best suit you.
