The Chemical Peels We Use and How They Can Help You

In 2020, nearly 1 million people chose to get a chemical peel. What makes this cosmetic treatment so popular? Peels are extremely effective at revealing your best skin, plus they can be personalized based on your aesthetic goals and the flexibility of your schedule.

Here at Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, and our team offer chemical peels to give you a way to get smoother, more radiant, younger-looking skin — all with a comfortable, convenient treatment. But not all peels are the same. That’s why Dr. Phuah offers consultations, allowing her to pinpoint the best peel for your specific goals. 

To help you get a better idea of your options, here’s an overview of the three main peel types we offer.

Dr. Phuah has extensive experience safely applying this professional-grade peel to help you toward your skin goals.

Salicylic peels are ideal for people with oily and acne-prone skin. They can help to:

In short, if you struggle with oiliness or acne, a salicylic acid peel is probably right for you. 

If you want to get more beautiful, even, radiant skin, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Phuah about our chemical peels. She can help you identify the right peel for your unique skin. To get started, call Hanami Medspa or make an appointment online today.
