Chemical peels are an excellent, non-surgical treatment to restore a more vibrant, youthful appearance to the skin. At the practice of Dr. Georges Kaado, we perform our signature Virginia Beach chemical peel using cutting-edge techniques to achieve dramatic improvement in blotchy, sun damaged, or aging skin.
A chemical peel is a procedure involving an acid solution used to remove dead and damaged upper layers of skin. This technique is used to smooth and refine texture and improve the appearance of skin on the face, neck, and hands. The chemical solution applied to the skin causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off, leaving new, regenerated skin that is smoother, less wrinkled, and more refined.
Chemical peels provide a non-surgical treatment option to restore a more youthful look to aging or sun damaged skin. There a several different types of chemical peels, each with its own unique benefits for the skin.
Also known as a “lunchtime peel” or light chemical peel, this treatment uses alpha-hydroxy acid, or another mild acid, to penetrate only the outer layer of skin. This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates the skin’s outer layer to remove dead and damaged skin and encourage cell regeneration. A superficial chemical peel can improve acne scars, skin texture, and mild discoloration to refresh the face, neck, chest, or hands.
In a medium peel, glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to the skin to penetrate the outer and middle layers and remove damaged cells. This treatment can improve fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, freckles, acne scars, and moderate skin discoloration. A medium peel produces more dramatic results than a light peel with no extended recovery time.
A deep peel uses trichloroacetic acid or phenol to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove age spots, shallow scars, freckles, and moderate lines. This treatment is only performed once and requires some recovery time. It produces the most dramatic improvement of any type of chemical peel.

A custom chemical peel exclusively offers in conjunction with microneedling can produce a dramatic improvement in skin issues such as leathery skin, wrinkles, creases, lines, and uneven skin tone and texture. The microneedling creates microchannels in the skin that trigger natural collagen and elastin production. The combination of skin rejuvenation treatments is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments for facial skin available. Following a combined treatment of microneedling and a chemical peel in Virginia Beach, our patients love the deep glow of exfoliation and the restorative effects of this dual-procedure.
Chemical peels are a great way to rejuvenate your skin. Brighter, healthier looking skin that improves your overall look are just a couple of the reasons it is worth having a chemical peel. Other benefits include:
Over time, your facial skin can start to look dull. If you are unhappy with the tone or texture of your skin, a chemical peel can improve the appearance and leave you feeling more refreshed fewer visible lines and wrinkles. If you have struggled with skin problems such as hyperpigmentation, a chemical peel promotes the growth of new and healthy top skin layer that looks supple, firm, evenly-toned, and glowing.
You should not have any waxing, laser hair removal treatments or use any hair removal creams one week prior to a chemical peel. Stop using any products that contain retinol, hydroxyl acids, or benzoyl peroxide at least three to four days before the peel. If you have had any recent procedures that have caused your skin to be more sensitive, it is important that you wait until you have completely healed before you have a chemical peel.
Most peels in Virginia do not require any preparation. If you tan regularly, it is important to stay away from the tanning beds or sun exposure for at least three weeks prior to your treatment. Prepare your skin by applying any prescribed lotions Dr. Kaado recommends.
Recovery time can vary significantly by patient and what type of chemical peel was performed. Some peels are stronger and meant to significantly penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. These can require a longer recovery time. The actual peeling of your skin will last approximately three to seven days depending on the peel’s strength. Let the skin peel off naturally; do not pick or peel off the dead skin. The use of a good UV sunscreen is important as the top layer of your skin has been removed to make way for the new, healthy layer.
