What are chemical peels?
One of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, chemical peels have been used for ages in ancient Rome,
Egypt and Greece to help people achieve more beautiful skin. Though they’ve been refined and perfected since
then, chemical peels are still used to this day to transform dull, lifeless skin into a stunning complexion.
Chemical peels involve using a powerful acid solution to remove the damaged outermost layers of your skin, along with imperfections like fine lines and age spots. In this way, the peel treats cosmetic imperfections and reveals a brand new, undamaged layer of skin. While chemical peels are typically performed on the face, they can also rejuvenate the neck, hands and chest.
At Marcus Medical Spa, we routinely apply chemical peels to help our clients:
- Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce acne and acne scars
- Treat uneven skin pigmentation
- Achieve a healthy and vibrant complexion
- Treat sun-damaged skin

Types of chemical peels available at Marcus Medical Spa
One of our most popular and effective treatments, Jessner’s Peel is particularly helpful for acne-prone
clients who have thick and/or oily skin. This is because it combines the power of resorcinol, lactic acid
and salicylic acid to deeply penetrate the surface of the skin and exfoliate the outer layer of cells. In
the three to four days after your treatment, your skin will produce noticeable flaking and exfoliation, and
within one week, smoother, clearer and healthier skin will be revealed.
TCA Chemical Peel
Our TCA chemical peel uses a non-toxic chemical called trichloracetic acid to achieve a medium-depth peel,
removing dead skin cells and revealing glowing skin. This is our most popular resurfacing option for clients
who wish to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne, sun spots and skin texture irregularities. As with all
chemical peels, there is some downtime associated with this treatment. In general, your skin will peel for
approximately one week, at which point your youthful and undamaged skin will be apparent. Typically, our
clients have TCA chemical peels a few times a year to maintain a perpetually glowing complexion.
