What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are a highly common and recommended skin treatment—both as a standalone and an “add-on”—which involves the application of a customized chemical solution to the skin, prompting a gradual peel of the treatment area and resulting in new, smoother skin.

The advantage of consulting with a cosmetic dermatologist, such as Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills, is ensuring that your skin type, your history of skin treatments, the overall condition of your skin, and your ultimate aesthetic goals are all taken into consideration when determining the best chemical peel (as well as the ideal strength and combination of ingredients) to meet your unique needs.

Dr. Emer and our experienced team of West Hollywood aestheticians use an assortment of peels to treat several chronic skin conditions, such as melasma and hyperpigmentation, as well as acne scars, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels are an excellent means of preparing the skin for laser resurfacing treatments and improving the outcome and viability of those procedures as well.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

  • Refreshing and invigorating
  • Combats several different skin conditions at the same time
  • Personalized for your comfort level
  • Helps reverse the signs of aging
  • Corrects facial scarring
  • Exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells
  • Removes debris, makeup, oil and dirt
  • Fights melasma and skin discoloration
  • Results after just one session
  • Helps offset sun damage and other environmental damage
  • Boosts self-image

What are the different types of chemical peels available?

Dr. Emer offers three types of chemical peels and will determine the best one for your skin after performing a detailed physical evaluation during your Beverly Hills consultation. A brief description of each follows.

Superficial: A mild chemical peel may include alphahydroxy acid that gently removes the outermost damaged layer of skin. Rough skin can be beautifully softened and discoloration can be reversed.

Medium: Glycol or trichloroacetic acids are used during a medium peel to remove the outermost layers of skin as well as slightly deeper layers. A medium chemical peel is perfect for addressing freckles, age spots, acne scars, sun damage, aging and poor skin tone.

Deep: A deep chemical peel makes use of tricholoroacetic acid or phenol to remove the damaged layers of skin that muddy the complexion. A deep peel can do wonders for improving the appearance of facial scarring, as well as wrinkles, folds, creases, fine lines and furrows.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

As Emerage Medical reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to keep our practice virus-free, and our staff and patients safe. Our approach closely follows public health directives and the latest recommendations from medical journals and academies.

Fewer People, Less Risk
The most visible change is reduced in-office staff. Fewer people means less person-to-person contact. We are only seeing about 25% of our normal patient volume and will only increase this by expanding our operating schedule – not by reducing time between patients.

Here’s How Patients Can Help
1. Please do not bring guests unless absolutely necessary, as they will not be permitted in the waiting room.
2. Please continue to wear a mask or face covering until you enter the exam room.
3. We screen everyone who enters the office – staff and patients alike – about recent travel, flu-like symptoms, and any potential exposure to COVID-19. Please help us by being transparent in your answers.
4. Please allow our staff to take your temperature at check-in using a contactless thermometer.

What to Expect After Check-In
After the check-in screening, patients will be directly escorted to their exam room to complete any paperwork. This is to reduce potential contact with other patients. Clean pens and clipboards will be provided to everyone and resterilized between each use.

Even More Safety Measures
Everyone on our staff has been directed not to come in if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or recently came in direct contact with anyone who’s tested positive. Here’s what else we’re doing to keep you safer:

  • Staff members will be wearing protective masks at all times.
  • All chairs, surfaces, and non-disposable equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between patients and at the top of every hour. 
  • All in-person meetings with suppliers, vendors, or salespeople have been canceled to reduce unnecessary foot traffic.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in nearly every area of the office.
  • The entire practice will be cleaned each night, including periodic deep cleanings to further sanitize the premises.
