Chemical Peels

At the Offices of Dr. Kenneth Odinet, we offer a variety of rejuvenating treatments to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Our skin care peels are a form of chemical exfoliation that help minimize the effects of environmental damage, slow the signs of aging and improve chronic skin conditions. These highly effective skin-resurfacing procedures work by exfoliating the damaged outer layer of the skin and encouraging cellular turnover.

Chemical peels come in a vast range of formulations and strengths. There is a peel for nearly every skin type and concern, whether you are hoping to minimize fine lines, erase sun damage, deep clean pores or improve texture and tone. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Odinet to learn more about the types of chemical peels we offer and find out which treatment is best for you.

Skinbetter 30 Peel

The ideal complement to an at-home regimen with our Skinbetter products, the Skinbetter 30 Peel is the result of rigorous research into skin health and skincare chemistry. This unique formula contains Skinbetter’s patented ingredient AlphaRet, a combined retinoid and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that maximizes skin rejuvenation while minimizing irritation. AlphaRet is a powerful de-aging innovation that tackles the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, irregular texture and uneven skin tone to create beauty that is backed by science. In a clinical study, patients noticed improvement in the overall appearance and condition of their skin after just one Skinbetter 30 Peel. Continued improvements were seen following each additional peel treatment.

Obagi Blue Peel \Reveal healthier, younger-looking skin one layer at a time with the Blue Peel from Obagi. Using a proprietary base mixed with slow-acting trichloroacetic acid (TCA), the Obagi Blue Peel helps improve the appearance of photoaging, blemishes, rough texture, pigmentation problems and fine to medium wrinkles. This medium-depth peel penetrates more deeply than our superficial peels, making it a potent solution for patients with more serious skin concerns, and is applied in layers so the application can be adjusted to your individual needs. With repeated treatments, the Obagi Blue Peel can produce results similar to those of a deeper peel with less discomfort and downtime.

Lactic Peel

Lactic acid is an AHA found in both over-the-counter and medical-grade skincare products. Derived from milk, lactic acid is particularly useful in treating age spots, hyperpigmentation and other factors that contribute to an uneven and dull complexion. Though it is gentle compared to more intense AHAs, such as glycolic acid, lactic acid still provides numerous benefits to the skin. Its mild nature makes it the most appropriate peel for individuals with sensitive skin. It is also a popular “starter peel” for patients who have never had a chemical peel and do not know what to expect. These patients often progress to stronger peels after a successful lactic acid peel.

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic acid is a time-tested ingredient used widely in chemical peel formulations. An AHA made from sugarcane, glycolic acid has a small molecular structure that allows it to travel deeper into the skin’s layers. Once there, it dissolves dead skin cells and excess sebum to reveal brighter, smoother and younger-looking skin on the surface. It also stimulates collagen production to improve skin health and further diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time. Glycolic acid peels are popular with individuals who have congested, oily or acne-prone skin, as well as people who want to give their skin a boost before a big event.

Salicylic Peel

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that penetrates deeply into pores. Although many skin types can benefit from salicylic acid chemical peels, they are especially helpful for treating acne, blackheads, clogged pores and excessive oil production. Salicylic acid also has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. One peel will leave your skin feeling softer and smoother and looking more radiant. To treat acne, pigmentation or visible signs of aging, a series of peels is recommended for optimal results. Dr. Odinet can design a personalized treatment plan based on your time commitment, budget and desired results.

Alpha Beta Peel

Reduce wrinkles, refine pores and revive radiance with a chemical peel that combines the benefits of alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids. Our Alpha Beta Peel nourishes and exfoliates while delivering anti-aging actives to keep the skin smooth, balanced and fresh. Expect to see more even tone and texture, diminished fine lines, fewer blemishes and smaller-looking pores. In addition to treating multiple skin concerns at once, this blend of acids also prepares the skin for better absorption of skincare products to maximize the effects of your home routine.

VI Peel

Aging is inevitable, but you do not have to settle for living with the effects it has on your skin. The VI Peel from VI Aesthetics is formulated with a synergistic blend of ingredients that is optimized to rejuvenate aging skin and prevent future damage. During a VI Peel, the solution is applied in two stages. The first application addresses issues in the superficial layers of the skin, while the second application travels below the surface to address issues at a deeper, cellular level. The VI Peel provides excellent results for patients who want to improve fine lines and wrinkles, smooth away rough texture and restore a more even skin tone.

Visit Dr. Odinet to Discover the Benefits of a Professional Chemical Peel

The products you use at home play an important role in maintaining the health and beauty of your skin, but no chemical peels you can purchase from a drug store, department store or online retailer can match the potency of a peel performed by a medical professional. Professional-grade peels contain more powerful active ingredients in stronger concentrations that are clinically proven to yield skin improvement. The benefits of an in-office peel are more dramatic and longer-lasting, and because the treatment is administered by a professional with extensive knowledge of skin care, your chemical peel regimen can be combined with complementary treatments to optimize your results.
