Chemical peels


We offer a wide range of peels incorporating the use of various acids (TCA, glycolic) as well as hydroquinone (skin “bleaching” agent).
Down-time with chemical peels is dependent upon the type and number of layers applied but typically lasts 3-4 days for glycolic, 7-10 days for TCA (a more intense peel).

During this time, the patient will experience a dry, tight sensation followed by a visible peeling that starts centrally around the mouth and nasal areas and moves outward. No post-procedure pain is associated with chemical peels, but patients may complain of an “itchy” sensation. Chemical peels are great for people with premature signs of aging, hyperpigmentation and sun damage.

Call 949-489-2218 for a complimentary consultation with one of Tayani Institute’s medical aestheticians or nurses. They and our Mission Viejo cosmetic surgeons will evaluate your skin type, discuss expectations and indicate the intensity of the peel.
