Chemical peels are acid solutions applied to the skin on your face that affect the outermost layer or layers of skin. The treated skin is shed, peeling away in the days following treatment, to reveal younger, refreshed, healthier, firmer, smoother skin. Chemical peels improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, create a more even texture and tone, and improve the appearance of facial scars.

What Can a Chemical Peel Help Me Achieve?
A chemical peel can be administered to the hands, neck, or face. At The Rose Clinic, we offer chemical peels in various formulas to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles

- Remove age spots, dark patches, or freckles
- Improve the texture, tone, and enhance overall skin quality
Chemical Peel Options
A consultation with our skincare professionals at the Rose Clinic will help you to determine the type of chemical peel will be most effective in treating your individual skin issues, whether scars, aging, dull, or unevenly-toned skin. During your consultation you will learn that there are different medical-grade chemical peels of varying strengths. These include:
A mild peel treats only the superficial skin layer. This milder formula can be used more frequently, and with several treatments can be extremely effective in treating fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, scars, and discolorations.
A milder peel that can be used on the hands, face, or neck that use a solution that affects both the epidermis and the dermis (the mid layer). These peels have a more significant effect and require a slightly longer period for your skin to recover.
This more intensive form of a chemical peel uses a solution that removes several layers of skin in order to manage deep wrinkles, creases, uneven tone, or to address precancerous skin growths. These peels can only be performed once.
A chemical peel is an outpatient procedure, and you are free to return home the same day the procedure is performed. When you visit The Rose Clinic in Utah for your chemical peel, you can expect the following:
- A medical-grade formula will be applied to your skin—the most typically used chemicals used in a chemical peel include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or for a deep chemical peel, phenol.
- You may experience a mild burning sensation for a few minutes, or a stinging sensation.
- Your skin will be gently and thoroughly cleansed.
After application, the skin crusts, scales, and peels over several days. The new skin that replaces it is softer, smoother, with fewer imperfections, appearing firm, youthful, and more evenly-toned.
Am I a Candidate For Chemical Peels?
You may be a good candidate for a chemical peel if you have:
- Sun spots, age spots, skin discolorations
- Lax, dull, or poor skin texture and quality
- Wrinkles, lines or scars
