Chemical peels are used for the treatment of rough, discolored, sun-damaged skin. They also aid in the treatment of acne and improve fine lines by promoting the growth of new collagen and improving the texture and tone of your skin. The results will leave you with soft and smooth, evenly-toned, glowing skin. A series of peels is recommended in order to achieve the best results. Ask Dr. Rasmussen which chemical peel is right for you.

Many peeling agents are used in our office to include Glycolic acid, Jessner's solution, Modified Jessner's solution and TCA solutions.
Superficial peeling agents like glycolic acid and the Jessner's solutions are designed to dissolve the top layer of the stratum corneum with will help provide a smoother, softer appearance of the skin. They also act deeper in the skin layers to improve fine lines and even out discoloration in the skin. They are highly effective in the treatment of melasma.
Deeper peeling agents like TCA are designed to be a resurfacing agent that can have equivalent results to laser resurfacing.
