Coarse, irregularly colored or textured facial skin can result from factors such as acne, sun overexposure and aging. A chemical peel at our med spa in Boston gently removes the outer layers of skin, improving scars, spots, wrinkles and rough patches for a healthier complexion.

Advanced Techniques & Options
A chemical peel involves the application of a specially formulated chemical compound that, as the name implies, peels the outside layers of skin from problem areas without the need for surgery. We offer different strengths and types of peels, and will customize your treatment to your skin type and the concern(s) you want to treat.
We provide a full range of chemical peels, from lighter Obagi® and Vitality Institute "lunchtime peels" performed by our aesthetician to the more deep TCA and Phenol peels performed by Dr. Guenther. During your initial visit, we will evaluate your skin and help you choose the peel that's best for you.
Healing & Enjoying Your New Look
The duration of your treatment and recovery will depend on the severity of your skin damage, the depth of the peel and the number of areas in which you require the procedure. Mild chemical peels can be quick treatments that require no real downtime. Deeper peels cause your skin to go through a sloughing process that may keep you home for a week or more. Dr. Guenther will discuss the various peel options available, and which one is right for you. Chemical peels can complement other skin care treatments such as BOTOX® and Dysport® and injectable fillers.
