What are Chemical Peels?
To provide the best results from chemical peel treatments, Titan Medical Aesthetics provides you with numerous options. Your individualized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will reveal healthier, smoother skin. At our Newburyport, MA office, our team offers chemical peel treatments that help to resolve skin irregularities, such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels work by removing dead or damaged skin cells by applying a customized peel on the skin that causes the top layer to peel off. As your skin recovers and starts to rejuvenate and repair itself, you will see a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive option to make your skin radiant and is used for the neck and face.
Variations of Chemical Peels
In our Newburyport, MA office, we provide chemical peels in various strengths (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skin needs and goals.
Light peels: You can receive a light peel at lunchtime and get back to your routine. This type of peel will remove the outer layer of your skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a more radiant appearance and softer texture. We typically recommend that you get a light peel around once a month for the ideal glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This level of peel reaches further into the skin, and patients generally decide to have this level of facial treatment during an extended weekend. You may also want to prepare yourself for increased discomfort during and around one hour following the chemical peel. Medium-depth peels are designed for patients who have significant damage to their skin, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
"I visited Titan Medical Aesthetics for laser genesis and it was amazing amazing experience. I was warmly welcomed to the office and treated so well throughout my experience. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They carefully listened to needs and helped me understand the procedure. The entire procedure lasted about 30 min. They paused throughout the procedure to answer my questions and make sure I was comfortable. The team at Titan Medical are led by Dr. Guy Navarra. Dr. Navarra was wonderful to work with - knowledgeable, patient and kind. It was a great experience and I will definitely go back. I highly recommend Titan Medical Aesthetics!"- R.D. / Google / Aug 06, 2020

Getting the suggestions of a cosmetic professional is the first part of the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at Titan Medical Aesthetics can assess your skin during an examination in our Newburyport, MA office before selecting a chemical peel for optimal results. Chemical peel patients, both men and women, typically have visible concerns in their skin, including scars, rough patches, flaky skin, uneven pigmentation, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and much more. We may suggest multiple types of chemical peels to meet your needs.
During your appointment at Titan Medical Aesthetics, we will have you lying down in a relaxed position to administer your peel. We will ensure your skin is cleaned prior to applying the customized solution to the treatment areas. We will spread the solution onto the skin and allow it to work for a specific length of time that will be determined in your treatment consultation. Then, we will clean the solution off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients may want to bring a light sunscreen and a hat to wear outside following the treatment to protect against environmental exposure.
What to Expect
Based on the type of chemical peel you choose, you should expect your skin to peel and itch from a few days to a couple of weeks. A member of our team will discuss methods to treat your face during your consultation. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches during the recovery, it's never helpful to peel the skin off. You may create scarring to your skin!
