Chemical Peels / Dermaplaning | Montgomery
Chemical peel is helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.
There are several types of chemical peels:
- Light peels to remove superficial wrinkles
- Medium peels
- Deep peels for more severe conditions.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas.
The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient’s skin. Significant improvement of damaged skin has been achieved, which can produce dramatic results.
Here at The Medspa at Alabama Surgical Arts, we currently offer The Perfect Derma Peel.

The Perfect Derma Peel is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin into younger, healthier looking skin in just one week! The Perfect Derma Peel can be used on all skin types, requires no pre-peel skin preparation, takes less than 15 minutes and is virtually pain free. The Perfect Derma Peel combines Glutathione, Kojic Acid, TCA, Retinoic Acid, Phenol, Salicylic Acid and Vitamin C.
The anti-oxidant Glutathione neutralizes the harmful effects of free radicals, actually slows down the aging p process and prevents wrinkles. Kojic Acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, Phenol and Retinoic Acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while Salicylic Acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. Alone the ingredients are powerful, but the combination produces amazing results:

• Reduce pore size and soften fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduce or eliminate hyper-pigmentation and acne scars

• Slow down the aging process and prevent wrinkles
The Perfect Derma Peel is a medical grade peel which must be applied by trained professional. We just know you a you are going to love the amazing results of The Perfect Derma Peel!
How does the Perfect Derma Peel compare to other peels?
The Perfect Derma Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after one treatment. This unique formula allows for an increase in lifting of fine lines and wrinkles as well as a lightening of melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The Perfect Derma Peel is a non-invasive relatively pain free treatment that entails only 2-3 days of peeling.
How many treatments are necessary for visible improvement?
After one treatment of the Perfect Derma Peel, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing and fresh. Depending on skin conditions, multiple treatments may be necessary for desired results. A series of 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as melasma and active acne.
How long will my results last?
As long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care products like the Perfect A, the Perfect C, and the Perfect Bleaching Cream the improved results will last. We recommend two to three treatments of the Perfect Derma Peel per year to sustain desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation.
What skin types respond well to the Perfect Derma Peel ?
All skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6) are safe to treat and will benefit from the Perfect Derma Peel.
What type of preconditioning is required?
The Perfect Derma Peel requires no preconditioning of the skin prior to treatment. Only those patients who use Accutane must stop usage (4) months prior to treatment in order to achieve desired results.
Does the Perfect Derma Peel burn?
The patient may feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation, which will subside after 30-60 seconds. Numbing takes place once the first pass of the Perfect Derma Peel solution is applied. A fan or cool breeze may be used for the comfort of the patient.
How severe is the peeling and what is the duration of the peeling process?
The amount of peeling skin associated with the Perfect Derma Peel is mainly a sloughing of thin sheets of epidermis skin that begins around day three and generally is completed by day six or seven.
What will I look like during the Perfect Derma Peel treatment process and post peel?
Immediately after the peel has been applied the skin will either appear red, like a sunburn, or darker. On day three, peeling will begin. The Perfect Derma Peel Moisturizer will reduce the visibility of peeling by h hydrating. By day six or seven the peeling process should be complete and the results are dramatic.
Will my daily routine be affected after the treatment?
Normal activities may be resumed immediately post peel. We only recommend avoiding heavy exercise and excessive sweating during the peeling process.
Can make up be worn post peel?
The day the peel is applied the patient should not put any make up or other products on his or her face post peel. Make may be worn on day 2 of the peeling process.
How many treatments are required?
The Perfect Derma Peel may be applied initially every four weeks if necessary. Thereafter, we recommend once every 3 – 6 months to maintain improved skin results, as well as to prevent further aging and environmental damage.
Can the Perfect Derma Peel be applied to other parts of the body other than the face?
The face, neck, chest and hands are the most commonly applied areas. The Perfect Derma Peel can be applied to other areas of the body, but the process and the results will not necessarily be the same.
Will the Perfect Derma Peel help improve acne and acne scars?
The Perfect Derma Peel formula was designed to help improve various problematic skin conditions. Acne is a major factor in what this treatment is tailored to resolve. The Perfect Derma Peel helps minimize the damage and scarring done by acne. The Glutathione helps increase cellular turnover to demolish stubborn acne scars. A series of peels will be necessary to diminish the damage and scarring.
How many treatments are necessary to resolve acne scars?
Depending on the severity of the scarring, a series of 3-4 peels every four weeks will be needed for optimum results. The number of treatments will also depend on how vigorously the layers are applied.
How will the Perfect Derma Peel improve my skin?
The Perfect Derma Peel will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce enlarged pores, help build collagen and elastin which will help to tighten and firm the skin. In addition, it will reduce or eliminate hyperpigmentation and melasma. Acne and acne scars are dramatically improved. The treatment fights free radical damage to remove discoloration due to sun damage and even out overall skin tone and complexion.
Will my skin be sensitive post peel?
Skin will be more sensitive during the peeling process until the PH level is replenished.
When can the patient receive his or her next treatment of the Perfect Derma Peel?
3-4 weeks after recovery (once the entire peel process is complete.)
