How to Choose the Right Chemical Peel for Your Skin Type

chemical peel

chemical peel is a procedure designed to refine the look and feel of your skin. Most treatments focus on the facial skin. Visible scarring or blemishes on your face can be significantly reduced or eliminated with these treatments over time.

The primary purpose of a chemical peel is to exfoliate the skin’s outermost layer with a specific peel solution, inducing a safe, controlled removal of the skin surface to achieve the desired result. This solution is not always the same across the variety of skin types. Things to consider when choosing the right peel for your skin.

Types of Chemical Peels for Different Skin Types

Experience Matters

The single most important consideration when choosing your skin treatment is choosing an experienced esthetician to curate and deliver your optimal treatment for optimal results. Here in our Med Spa at Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery, we are so much MORE than just great Plastic Surgery. Our esthetician has extensive training and experience, enabling you the comfort and trust in knowing we set the Gold-Standard in skin care. This should be the absolute minimum requisite and standard you demand of anyone treating your most valuable asset…..your face.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

As a mild type of chemical peel, alpha-hydroxy acid penetrates only the outermost layer of your skin while allowing for the thorough removal of the superficial, dead skin cells. This peel is appropriate for even the most sensitive skin types. The treatment may be used to target the face, neck, chest, or hands reviving fatigued skin and smoothing out rough or uneven surface areas. For the best results, an AHA of varying doses may be administered at regular intervals, weekly or more often, depending on your specific skin care needs.

Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)

TCA peels are a popular choice for those seeking a medium-depth chemical peel. Generally, TCA peels are ideal for skin types that show mild signs of photo-aging. Peels of this kind are effective in treating a wide variety of skin issues, including UV damage, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation.


When it comes to chemical peels, only the phenol peel penetrates deeply enough to benefit the deep dermis in addition to the epidermis. Patients with UV damage, precancerous growths, or deep wrinkles in the face are the most rewarding candidates for this treatment.

Since a phenol peel is a highly concentrated type of chemical peel, only opt for this treatment from a highly-skilled, experienced, and reputable practitioner, like that found here in our Med Spa at Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery.
