Chemical Peels Tacoma

We’re proud to offer the VIPeel. Safe for all skin types the 2 active ingredients: 10% phenol and 3 acids: trichloracetic, retinoic and salicylic acids work to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin.

Due to the numbing quality of the phenol Dr. Chung offers the VIP phenol peel as virtually pain-free (although certain individuals may feel some mild stinging, which we control with a fan). Another benefit of the peel is that pre-conditioning the skin is not necessary, unlike traditional phenol peels. Hyperpigmentation does not occur with this peel and cardiac monitoring is not necessary.

Dr. Chung completes this peel in 20 minutes and recovery usually lasts about a week, with the most peeling occurring on the third or fourth day.
