Chemical Peels

BioRePeel

The BioRePeel is a revolutionary TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel that, believe it or not, involves no peeling. Its unique formulation is potent and effective but doesn't damage the skin's top layer. Here's why we love it:

  • Treats a range of skin conditions, from rosacea to acne scarring

  • Patients will see results with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime

  • Suitable for all skin types

Who is a good candidate for the BioRePeel?

Any and all skin types are suitable for the BioRePeel. This universal peel treats a wide range of skin conditions, including acne, melasma and rosacea.

What skin conditions does the BioRePeel treat? 

The BioRePeel rejuvenates the skin, and can help address the following conditions:

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Sun damage

  • Blemishes

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Rosacea

  • Melasma

  • Acne and acne scarring

How does the BioRePeel work? 

One of the reasons why the BioRePeel is gaining popularity is because it doesn't cause any trauma to the top layer of skin, meaning there's no peeling and irritation. This is because the peel utilizes biphasic technology, consisting of a lipophilic and hydrophilic phase. The biphasic technology allows the peel to bypass the epidermis (or outermost layer of skin) and targets the lower, damaged layers of skin. This encourages exfoliation without peeling thanks to moisturizing amino acids and vitamins that leave the skin look hydrated and renewed.

What are the key ingredients in the BioRePeel? 

The active ingredients in the BioRePeel include: Trichloroacetic Acid  (TCA), Poly hydroxy acids, Beta hydroxy acids, Alpha hydroxy acids, Aminoacids, Vitamin C & Vitamin B2-, GABA

How many BioRePeel treatments do you typically recommend?

Though the number of recommended treatments will vary among patients, we typically suggest three treatments, spaced 10-14 days apart. Each individual session lasts around 30 minutes.

One of the benefits of the BioRePeel is that it can be performed all year round, regardless of the season, unlike traditional peels. It can also be combined with other modalities to improve results.

How should I care for my skin before a BioRePeel session?

Similar to other peels, we advise patients to avoid exfoliating agents at least 48 hours before their treatment. Patients should avoid AHAs, BHAs, retinols for at least a week prior to treatment, and waxing or tanning at least two weeks beforehand.

How should I care for my skin after a BioRePeel session?

Although the BioRePeel doesn't have any downtime, you'll still want to take steps to ensure proper healing. This includes avoiding makeup for at least 48 hours after an appointment, and steering clear of AHAs, BHAs and retinols for two weeks. We also encourage patients to avoid waxing, tanning, and steam saunas for two weeks after their appointment.

It's critical that patients keep their skin moisturized and protected from the sun, so make sure you have broad-spectrum sunscreen on-hand. Our team will work with you to establish a skincare regimen that'll aid with healing and maximize your results.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin to make skin smoother, reduce scarring and remove blemishes. Ranging from mild to strong, there are three types of chemical peels: alphahydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. The strength of each peel is tailored to the patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures, such as facelifts, for additional improvement to skin. Chemical peels may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.

Chemical peels are performed in a plastic surgeon's or dermatologist's office, or an outpatient surgical center. Anesthesia is not required because TCA and phenol have anesthetic properties, and AHA produces only a slight stinging.

Chemical Peel Procedure

During a TCA or phenol peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution is applied, which may cause a brief stinging sensation. Petroleum jelly or a waterproof adhesive tape may be put on the skin following a phenol peel. During an AHA peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution applied; there is no need for post-peel ointment or covering.

Side Effects of Chemical Peels

A phenol or TCA peel can result in tingling or throbbing, reddened skin, a crust or scab, and significant swelling that lasts, depending on the strength of the peel used, about a week. With a phenol peel, eyes may be swollen shut at first, and the patient may be put on a liquid diet and advised to keep talking to a minimum. Any tape used is removed after a day or two. AHA peels can cause temporary stinging, redness and irritation, as well as flaking or crusting. After a chemical peel, it is essential that the skin be protected from the sun.
