What are Chemical Peels?
Exfoliate your skin with one of our PCA SKIN® chemical peels at Essential Med Aesthetics to reveal healthier, more radiant skin. At our San Antonio, TX office, board-certified physician Dr. Freda Cobbinah offers chemical peels that can improve skin abnormalities like wrinkles, scars, fine lines, uneven tone, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels dissolve dead and damaged skin cells using a customized solution on the skin that causes the top layer to slough off. When your skin heals after repairing and rejuvenating itself, you'll see clearer, smoother skin. A chemical peel is a noninvasive technique to make your complexion on your face and neck radiant. Call us for a consultation for a chemical peel at your earliest convenience.

Am I a Candidate?
We'll evaluate your skin at Essential Med Aesthetics during an initial consultation to determine whether you're are an appropriate chemical peel candidate. Chemical peel candidates have visible problems on their skin, like scars, flaky skin, discoloration, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, or other issues. We will recommend different levels of our chemical peels to fit your specific needs.
Our PCA SKIN Chemical Peel Technique
On the day of your peel at Essential Med Aesthetics, we'll have you lie in a comfortable position in one of our tranquil treatment rooms. We'll clean your skin before applying the personalized solution to your face and neck. We will spread the solution onto your skin and allow it to work for a specific amount of time (which will be decided during your treatment consultation). Finally, we'll clean the peel off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent if needed. You may want to bring a light sunscreen or a hat to wear outside after the treatment to protect your skin from environmental exposure.
What to Expect
Depending on the strength of the chemical peel you choose, you should expect your face to peel and itch from a few days to two or more weeks. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches during the healing process, it is never a good idea to pull the skin off. Let nature take its course in order to avoid scarring your skin.
Reveal a Fresh New You
Even if you have never had professional skin care treatments, Essential Med Aesthetics can help you choose how to rejuvenate your skin. Your freshly renewed skin will respond by looking radiant and feeling soft to the touch. Call our office in San Antonio, TX to schedule your skin consultation today for a professional chemical peel.
