Have you ever heard someone raving about the results they got from a chemical peel? This remarkable cosmetic treatment can address and improve everything from wrinkles and fine lines to dark spots and even acne scarring!

At Brentwood Dermatology, we offer three different chemical peels and can recommend one depending on your skin care goals. Keep reading to learn more about the ZO 3-Step Peel, Melanage Mini Peel, and TCA Peel to figure out which one is best for you!

3 Phenomenal Types of Chemical Peels 

ZO 3-Step Peel 

One of the most popular types of chemical peels we offer at Brentwood Dermatology is the ZO 3-Step Peel. This treatment is a multifunctional epidermal peel that can address a myriad of skin conditions, such as acne, laxity, discoloration, wrinkles and fine lines, uneven skin texture, sun damage (like pesky dark spots), and much more. 

The ZO 3-Step Peel uses the power of retinol, deep exfoliants, and multi-action agents to increase collagen production, boost cell regeneration, restore the skin’s moisture balance, and reduce inflammation for softer, smoother, more radiant skin. 

So what are the three steps involved in the ZO 3-Step Peel? This procedure features the following steps: 

  1. The first step is application of the peel solution to the skin. This solution is made from 5% lactic acid, 17% salicylic acid, and 10% TCA.
  2. The 6% Retinol Creme is applied to the skin, which goes deeper into the skin thanks to the peel solution. 
  3. The final step in the ZO 3-Step Peel involves the application of the Calming Creme that soothes the skin and serves as a protective barrier. 

During the post-procedure recovery time, the 6% Retinol Creme and Calming Creme are applied to further stimulate the skin, as well as reduce inflammation and irritation.  


Melanage Mini Peel 

Are you interested in lightening skin discoloration, diminishing dark spots and age spots, improving the look of acne and acne scarring, and achieving an overall brighter, more vibrant complexion? The Melanage Mini Peel may be the right chemical peel for you! 

This advanced peel is specifically formulated to address and treat skin discoloration, such as melasma, brown spots, sunspots, uneven skin tone, discoloration from acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation. 

It utilizes an effective blend of acids and retinol to deeply exfoliate the skin, boost collagen production, and improve skin tone for a more youthful and radiant complexion. 


TCA Peel 

A tried and true ingredient in chemical peels, TCA, or trichloroacetic acid, has been used for decades in cosmetic dermatology. 

This remarkable ingredient is a favorite among both dermatologists and patients, as it can deliver exceptional skin care results, including: 

  • Smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines. 
  • Improvement in skin texture and tone. 
  • Fewer blemishes and active breakouts. 
  • Reduced skin laxity. 
  • Diminishing age spots and dark spots. 
  • Improving the appearance of acne scars
  • Brighter, more youthful complexion. 

One of the top benefits of a TCA Peel is that it can be customized depending on your unique aesthetic goals. For instance, a TCA Peel can be a superficial peel that is better for someone with sensitive skin, while a medium peel may be best for someone who wants to see dramatic results. 

You and your dermatologist will determine which TCA concentration is best for you, which is why we recommend scheduling a consultation first!
