Chemical Peels

Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. Huntington Dermatology can help you improve your skin with our chemical peels.

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. A chemical peel can help improve:

  • Acne
  • Acne Scars
  • Age Spots
  • Fine Lines
  • Freckles
  • Irregular Skin Pigmentation
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged Skin
  • Wrinkles


Huntington Dermatology offers chemical peels by SkinMedica. SkinMedica’s amazing medical grade chemical peels target everyone’s needs and issues with a quick 20 minute safe treatment leaving you with a flawless finish. SkinMedica’s offers two different kinds of chemical peels, Vitalize Peels and Rejuvenize Peels.

Rejuvenize Peel

The Rejuvenize Peel is a stronger peel and is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical grade peels where individuals are now seeing less shedding of dead skin when other chemical peels are performed. This peel may result in some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after this peel is applied.  The duration usually lasts about 3-4 days.

Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel is our most popular peel which exfoliates your dead skin resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, less brown spots and less sun damage. Two days after this peel is applied the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for a duration of about 2-3 days.  If you want to peel during the weekend, we suggest receiving this peel on a Thursday or Friday.

Noticeable results can be achieved after one peel, compelling results after 3-6 peel series.
