Peels and Facials
Peels and Facials IN
VILLANOVA & COLLEGEVILLE
Fresh, beautiful-looking skin is often hiding just beneath the surface. A chemical peel helps remove the dead and dull skin cells sitting on the surface of your skin, revealing smoother and more youthful skin beneath. Many patients seeking effective skin care look for chemical peels, as the active ingredients can be customized to provide the level of peel you’re looking for – whether cosmetic issues are mild or extensive, including lines and wrinkles. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, our experienced aestheticians provide a range of skin peel services to meet your needs and help you feel confident in your skin.
What are Chemical Peels?
Removing the top layer of dull-looking skin is an effective way to help skin look fresh and glowing. Chemical peels successfully do this through the application of several different solutions with an active ingredient that creates the peeling process. As the skin is exfoliated, the body’s natural collagen processes are trigged, which helps increase the anti-aging effect of the procedure.
The chemical solutions used in skin peels are typically alpha hydroxy acid and beta hydroxy acid, but most patients may know these as AHAs, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid. These active ingredients can be used in varying concentrations to create the desired skin-clearing and anti-aging effect. The knowledgeable and friendly aestheticians at Bryn Mawr Dermatology customize a skin peel process to fit your expectations and correct skin complaints that can adversely affect your confidence.

IS A CHEMICAL PEEL RIGHT FOR YOU?
Many patients choose a chemical peel to look more youthful and avoid the interference of a more invasive procedure, like a laser treatment. A deep chemical peel is effective at smoothing and plumping aged skin, and reducing the lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel. Patients seek chemical peels for additional aesthetic benefits including:
- Corrects melasma
- Reduces wrinkles
- Firms skin
- Minimizes acne scars
- Reduces excess oil production
- Fades hyperpigmentation
- Treats sun damage
The best way to determine whether a cosmetic skin peel will meet your goals and help you look refreshed is by scheduling a consultation with our aestheticians. We provide one-on-one appointments to better understand your concerns, goals, and medical or cosmetic skin care needs. From here, we can create a treatment plan that exceeds your expectations. As the gentlest form of a peel, mild salicylic acid treatment can be a great addition to any treatment plan, making most patients good candidates for this therapy.
CHEMICAL PEEL OPTIONS IN VILLANOVA AND COLLEGEVILLE
MILD AND MODERATE SKIN PEELS
Many patients choose gentle or superficial skin peels to gain a cosmetic boost without extensive downtime. While some redness and peeling are to be expected, the downtime is short-lived and mild. Bryn Mawr Dermatology offers different strength chemical peels to help address age spots, discoloration, acne breakout, and fine lines. Patients can also opt for several mild skin peels in a treatment series to create the effect of a deep peel, and avoid spending days at home to recover from their procedure. Visit our aestheticians and ask for a customized treatment.
DEEP CHEMICAL PEELS
For patients who want the dramatic results of several mild or moderate peels, without the repeat visits, we offer deep chemical peels. After one treatment, patients notice their skin look significantly younger, smoother, and more vibrant. The Revitalize Peel is the perfect choice for comprehensive care within one visit. Other options are trichloroacetic acid peels or a micropeel (the combination of microdermabrasion and a chemical peel). The recovery period for a deep chemical peel is longer and causes additional skin flaking, peeling, and redness. However, as the skin heals, and results continue to develop, patients notice beautiful results that allow them to look years younger and more refreshed.

BUT I’M PREGNANT!!!!
Did you know that when you are pregnant or lactating there are major changes going on with your skin that accompany the changes your body endures while creating life? The unfortunate truth may be that skin health may suffer during pregnancy AND there are few ways to safely treat it. Glycolic peels (made from natural sugar) are one of the only 100% pregnancy-safe services available to help with fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and acne while pregnant or lactating. These peels pair perfectly with glycolic washes and lotions for skin maintenance during this vital time.
