Chemical Peels at
Nashville Cosmetic Surgery
Nashville Cosmetic Surgery offers medical grade peels that provide a quick and convenient solution for achieving healthy glowing skin with little or no downtime.
Chemical peels have been used for decades as a way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture, diminish acne and lessen pigment. The process involves applying a chemical to the damaged outer layers of skin to reveal a more vibrant complexion. Chemical peels can be applied to many areas of the body including face, neck, chest, back legs and hands with little to no downtime.
We generally recommend a series of 4-6 peels spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart to achieve maximum results. These peels are appropriate for almost every skin type and are a convenient treatment that can be done over your lunch time! Mild peels usually take about 20 minutes and most patients notice an improvement in texture and skin appearance immediately.
Nashville Cosmetic Surgery offers a variety of different chemical peel options that can be tailored to address unique individual skin issues. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our skin care providers to determine which peel would be best for you.
"I love your peels! I can always depend my skin glowing before an event." - JG, NCS Patient
The GPA, or Gamma Poly Acid peel, is a mild peel that can be used on all skin types to exfoliate and nourish dull skin. GPA provides antioxidant support to the skin to enhance moisture retention, while delivering products deeper in the cells. Patients usually see immediate results in texture and overall skin glow.
TIP: This is a perfect peel to give your skin a glow before an event with little to no downtime and no sun sensitivity.
TCA multi-layer Peel
The TCA multi-layer peel is a combination of TCA (trichloroacetic acid), Retinol and Salicylic Acid. The combination of these ingredients allows peel to work while limiting the ionization of free acids commonly associated with irritating properties of many chemical peels. This means maximum results with minimal downtime. Patients notice diminished fine lines and wrinkles, improved tone and texture, smaller pores and reversal of sun damage and pigmentation.
TIP: This peel requires a 20 minute application time and you leave wearing the peel for 2 hours.
The HydraFusion Peel combines Lactic and Uric acids in a mild peel to give maximum exfoliation and moisturizing benefits to dry and dehydrated skin. This is a peel that is perfect for pre or post laser patients or skin that has been exposed to the elements.
TIP: Both men and women can benefit from exfoliation and added hydration. We perform this peel on lots of our male patients.
The Melanage Peel is a combination of Retinol and Arbutin that effectively removes the surface layers of damaged skin to address uneven skin tone and deep pigment issues, including melasma. The peel is applied in office and removed by the patient at home. Patients receive an at home aftercare program, which is included in the cost of treatment to enhance the effects of the peel. This is the perfect peel for those with concerns about texture, superficial acne scarring or pigmentation as an alternative to laser treatments.
TIP: This peel is a perfect solution for treating Melasma or as an alternative to laser treatments for retexturizing and addressing pigment.
