There are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. At Rejuvalife, we focus on superficial and medium chemical peels in LA and Beverly Hills that require very little downtime with rapid results.

Superficial Chemical Peels

Superficial, Mild or “Lunchtime” chemical peels are those that gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, often using mild chemicals such as alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) or salicylic acid.

Medium Chemical Peels

Medium peels use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to penetrate deeper into the skin past the outermost layer to remove damaged skin cells below the surface.

Deep Chemical Peels

Deep chemical peels use phenol or trichloroacetic acid to completely penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged cells.


Rejuvalife Custom Lite Peel

If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, the Rejuvalife Custom Lite Peel may be right for you. The formulation of beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) is designed to loosen and remove aging and dead skin cells, oil, and debris attached to the skin’s surface.

Stimulated cell production and increased collagen formation often result in marked improvement in acne-prone skin. Regular use can also decrease fine lines, smooth skin, even out pigmentation, and reduce pore size. The Rejuvalife Custom Lite Peel requires no downtime.

Rejuvalife Peel Plus

Try this chemical peel for a more youthful and radiant complexion. Using alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), the Rejuvalife Peel Plus intensely exfoliates to accelerate the cell renewal process, stimulate collagen renewal, and improve elastin under the skin’s surface. You will notice dramatic improvements in skin texture, freckles, and superficial pigmentation.

Because of its molecular structure, glycolic acid penetrates quicker and deeper, and is beneficial in improving dry skin, treating age spots, improving oily and acne-prone skin, and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. This peel is especially suited for patients with photo-damaged or dry skin and requires no downtime.

VI Peel

Rejuvalife is proud to offer the VI Peel, designed to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage. Its synergistic blend of gentle yet powerful ingredients can improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin; reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation; soften lines and wrinkles; and clear acne conditions. The Vi Peel can also be used to treat sun damage on the décolletage and hands. This virtually painless treatment takes only about 20 minutes and requires minimal healing time.

Cosmelan Peel

The Cosmelan Peel is a powerful rejuvenation treatment for particularly stubborn and dense pigmentation. Cosmelan’s synergistic ingredients regulate melanin activity, causing the cells to slow down production and function in a more uniform way. Cosmelan is “sun-friendly” — an especially appreciated factor for our California lifestyle — and works well even on darker-toned Asian and Latin skin. Significant results may appear within one week after starting the treatment. You will then maintain your treatment using at-home products on a daily basis. Follow-up office visits are recommended at 15 days and 30 days after the beginning of treatment, and once every month thereafter.

Obagi Blue Peel

You will see dramatic results with the Obagi Blue Peel! After years of development and testing, Obagi has created an innovative physician-administered chemical peel using Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient. We apply an Obagi Blue Peel with the proper concentration of TCA, based on your skin care needs. When repeated over a period of time, this peel can achieve the same result as a deeper chemical peel or laser. Healing usually takes place in just seven to ten days.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chemical Peels

Are chemical peels painful?

Chemical peels can cause a minor burning or stinging sensation but this is not overly painful.

Will chemical peels get rid of acne scars?

Chemical peels can improve the appearance of acne scars by removing the outer layer of dead or damaged skin cells.

How often should I get a Chemical Peel?

How often you should get a chemical peel depends on the intensity of that peel. Dr. Berger and his team recommend getting a series of four to six superficial chemical peels over the span of a year for best results, but only recommend one deep chemical peel per year.

Why choose Skin Resurfacing?

Lifestyle and normal aging create lines, wrinkles, texture and color changes on the skin. The areas typically affected by the years include the face, chest, neck, cleavage, arms, and hands.nnMicrodermabrasion improves skin texture, color, and wrinkles by removing the top layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. This procedure also stimulates elastin renewal, while will result in healthier firmer skin.

How long does it take to recover from a Chemical Peel?

The recovery time from a chemical peel varies dependent on the type of peel. Superficial chemical peels require almost no downtime which makes them perfect for quick fixes. Medium chemical peel recovery time is usually five to seven days, though redness can linger for a few months. Deep chemical peels reveal new skin in about two weeks, though redness may last for several months. Our chemical peel options at Rejuvalife all have minimal downtime.nnChemical peel options include retinoic, glycolic, and lactic acids and may be customized to correct acne, sun damage, and oily or aging skin. If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, the Rejuva-Light Peel may be right for you. The formulation of beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) is designed to loosen and remove aging and dead skin cells, oil, and debris. For patients with sun damage or dry skin, we offer the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) formulated Rejuvalife Custom Peel. This peel exfoliates to accelerate the cell renewal process, stimulates collagen, and improves elastin.

Are Chemical Peels good for skin?

In moderation, chemical peels can be very beneficial to the way the skin looks, feels and functions. We recommend you do not get more than one light chemical peel every four to six weeks, and no more than one deep peel per year.

Does Chemical Peel remove pigmentation?

Lighter, superficial chemical peels can help improve hyperpigmentation and freckles on the surface of the skin and are suitable for all skin tones and textures. Certain deeper chemical peels may not be recommended to patients with deeper skin tones, as they may disrupt their skin's natural pigmentation.
