What Is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. There are many types of chemical agents which treat a myriad of dermatologic issues from acne to photodamage, pigment, and wrinkles. Peels range from mild salon-type procedures with no “down-time” and no true peeling to much more deeply penetrating with significant, but temporary, inflammation and peeling.
Chemical Peels (TCA & Jessner’s)
Our office provides glycolic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and Jessner’s solution peels. These are used to treat pigmentation of the skin in the form of photodamage (sun spots, “age spots”, “liver spots”), blotchiness, mild to moderate wrinkles & fine lines, skin that is dull in texture and color, and mild acne scarring. Patients with actinic keratoses or precancers may also benefit from these peels, though it is our practice to treat actinic keratoses with other therapies. TCA & Jessner’s peels are not lunchtime procedures. In order to treat discoloration, wrinkles, and textural changes of the skin, it is necessary to use an agent of sufficient strength and achieve a peel of adequate depth.
The glycolic and salicylic acid peels performed in our office are physician strength but do not have the down-time of the stronger Jessner’s and TCA peels. These peels are beneficial in the treatment of acne and melasma and may be performed periodically for general skin maintenance or mild rejuvenation of normal, aging, or sun-damaged skin.

I have a fair complexion and susceptible to skin issues. Enjoy going to their office the doctors and assistants have been very kind. Would recommend this office.
I had a great experience removing my skin cancer on the front of my shoulder a week ago. They were kind, detailed, and took the time to explain the whole process. I am glad I have chosen them to assist with my dermatology needs.
Very professional and skilled! Finally able to resolve some issues I’ve had in the past that other dermatologists ignored.
Dr. Woseth has long played a critical role in my health, for which I will be forever in his debt. He is one of the nicest and most competent doctors I have ever met.
Very professional. They examined me and explained everything. I will go there for years.
I love this clinic. Every time I go I have a wonderful experience!

My recent appointment went great. All the staff are welcoming. I did not have to wait long. Alisa is always kind and gentle, makes me feel comfortable. I refer all my friends.
Everyone at the office is very caring. I've been a patient here for about 3-4 years and they've taken care of me so well. The treatment they provide has been life changing!
First time doing a skin check and having something removed. They were very nice and fast. It was completely painless and relaxing. Pretty sure I found my new dermatologist.
