What are Chemical Peels?
For the highest quality results from chemical peel treatments, our team at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery is proud to provide you with personalized options. Your facial treatment with chemical solutions, like salicylic, glycolic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids, will reveal healthier skin. At our Tampa, FL office, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers chemical peel treatments to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, dry patches, and hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels remove dead, damaged skin cells by using a personalized chemical solution, which causes the top layer to peel off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair itself, you will notice a smoother complexion. A chemical peel is a nonsurgical procedure that can make your complexion look more luminous.
Variations of Chemical Peels
To meet our patients' skin care needs and goals, we offer different types of chemical peels. Each treatment varies in strength and offers many benefits.
Light Peels: You can have a light chemical peel during your lunchtime and go right back to work after the treatment. A light peel removes the outer layer of your skin, giving your face a brighter appearance and smoother texture. We usually suggest that you schedule a light treatment at least once a month for the best results.
Medium-depth Peels: This level of chemical peel goes deeper into the skin, and you'll generally prefer to complete it over a long weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for additional discomfort. Medium-depth peels work best for patients who have significant skin damage, such as deeper lines or darker pigmentation problems.
Deep Peels: The deep chemical peel is the strongest, and it will require the longest recovery time. This treatment can cause swelling, peeling, and itching for a few weeks. Patients who receive a deep peel have age or dark spots, sun damage, prominent acne scars, or deep-seated scars. Since this level of chemical peel is uncomfortable for most patients, your aesthetician can provide you with mild anesthesia as a part of your treatment.

Is A Chemical Peel Right For You?
Receiving the advice of an aesthetic professional is the first part of the journey to smooth, healthy skin. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, a team member will evaluate your skin before selecting the best chemical peel for you. Chemical peel patients often have noticeable problems on their skin, including rough patches, acne scars, flaky skin, discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. We will recommend different types of chemical peels to match your needs and create a tailored treatment plan.
During your procedure, we will ask you to relax in a comfortable treatment chair. Before applying the solution to your face, neck, or both places, your skin is cleaned to remove any oil or dirt. Next, one of our team members will carefully brush the personalized solution onto your skin and allow it to sit for a certain amount of time. We will determine the length of time during your consultation. Finally, we will wash off the solution and apply a neutralizing agent. To avoid UV exposure, you should bring sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after the treatment.
What to Expect
Depending on the level of the chemical peel you choose, you should expect the face to itch and peel for several days to a couple of weeks. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions that outline how to care for your skin. To ensure your skin heals properly, you should follow these directions. Please keep in mind that no matter how badly your skin itches during the healing process, it is not a good idea to peel it. This could create scarring to your delicate skin!
Chemical Peel FAQ
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Mang or a member of his team can go over your costs during your consultation once they have come up with your chemical peel treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel can vary depending on the level you choose. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery takes many payments methods, and we often run specials on facial treatments like chemical peels. Buying a package with several chemical peel treatments can also help you save money.
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin issues and aesthetic goals. In your consultation, we will help you select which chemical peel is right for your skin. A few things you may consider are your general health, the type of skin you have, the depth of your skin concerns, the time you can commit to recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. For your first peel, it may be better to select a light chemical peel and see what you think of the results. From there, you and your provider may alter your plan to find the best chemical peel level for your needs.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Both dermabrasion and chemical peels are facial rejuvenation procedures that address surface irregularities to make your skin a softer appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion requires special tools (a rotating brush or shaving instrument) to remove the surface skin layer with a careful scraping process. A chemical peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve dead skin cells. In your initial consultation, Dr. Mang or a team member will go over the advantages of both options and help you choose whether a chemical peel or dermabrasion is best for your needs and goals.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the chemicals selected, you may feel mild discomfort while it is actively treating your skin. If you get a light peel, you will feel some discomfort; however, it goes away quickly with the use of a small fan. Medium and deep peels are good for deeper skin blemishes and offer results that last a long time; however, they are typically more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, medications, and soothing ointments may be used to minimize your discomfort during your treatment. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will give you tips on how to care for your skin after a peel to help your skin heal.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
You may consider combining a chemical peel with another nonsurgical skin treatment at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. During your initial consultation, be honest with us about your skin and cosmetic concerns so we can develop a personalized treatment plan that delivers your best results. This may include an injectable treatment for wrinkles (like BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) plus a chemical peel to rejuvenate your entire appearance.
