Chemical Peel

More Details

In Issaquah, a Chemical Peel’s strength can range from a “polish” to a true peeling treatment. With the uppermost part of the epidermis peeled or exfoliated, the skin appears fresher and is also able to absorb home skincare products better as a result.


The effects of Chemical Peels will gradually wear off over time and the original condition of the skin may return without touch-ups or incorporating other treatments.

As with any medical treatment, ensure you are getting treated with a very experienced medical provider. Technique and peel selection defines safety. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, no medical complications have ever occurred.

The cosmetic benefit can be seen as early as a week, and continues to improve over time and with repeat maintenance treatments.

Typically, maintenance treatments are every 3-4 months, as desired.

The most common side effects include a mild stinging sensation at the time of treatment. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, we do everything possible to help prevent and avoid any unpleasant experiences and ensure your treatment is very comfortable.

There are different techniques available to improve tone, texture, lines, wrinkles, and laxity of the skin. Different treatments are commonly used together for additive benefits. Many factors are taken into consideration when recommendations are made for you at TLJ. Together we will determine the right fit for you.
