At Dr. Cash’s medical spa in Houston, chemical peel options range from mild to moderately strong and can address a wide array of skin concerns. In general terms, chemical peels remove the dull, damaged outer layers of skin and help banish fine lines, blemishes, and areas of dry skin and discoloration. “Patients are often surprised to hear me recommend a chemical peel – it sounds a little scary to some people. But this treatment is very effective and easily customized,” says Dr. Cash. “In the hands of an experienced practitioner, a chemical peel is very safe, and can take years off and really ‘polish’ the skin.”

When it comes to chemical peels, there are numerous formulations and varying strengths to address different concerns. Dr. Cash’s Medical Aesthetician will carefully evaluate your skin and your concerns, and will work with you to determine the right type of peel for you. She may recommend a series of peels, or a peel in combination with another skin procedure such as dermaplaning.

Chemical peels are specially formulated substances that contain an irritant used to exfoliate the skin. The peel is smoothed over the skin, left on for a set period of time, and then neutralized. Once the peel is removed, the outer layers of skin cells peel off to reveal healthier skin that looks and feels younger. Peels can be selected and tailored for individual concerns and available recovery time.
Chemical Peel Options
We offer a variety of medical-grade chemical peels, including:
Glycolic acid peels are a good choice for those who seek a refreshed complexion but want to avoid downtime.
TCA peels (for trichloroacetic acid) treat a wide range of skin concerns such as sun damage, lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation.
Salicylic acid peels are specifically recommended for patients with acne.
Melange™ peels treat melasma, dark spots, sun spots, and poor skin texture to improve the health and appearance of all skin types.
Another option is the HydraFacial® treatment. Designed to remove dead skin, cleanse pores, and hydrate skin, this treatment combines the effects of a chemical peel with hydrating nutrients and moisture your skin craves. HydraFacial treatments are a multi-step process for improving the skin’s tone and texture to help you look and feel your best.
Chemical Peels FAQ
Are chemical peels safe?
When selected and performed by an experienced practitioner, chemical peels are safe and effective.
Do chemical peels hurt?
Experiences vary between patients and with the type and strength of the peel. Patients typically feel tingling, warmth, and possibly mild stinging and burning—not pain—when a light to medium peel is first applied. Numbing medication may be used for deep peels.
Do chemical peels help acne?
Yes. Superficial (light) peels are good for mild acne and medium-strength peels work well for moderate to severe acne scars. Chemical peels are just one of our acne treatment options.
