Chemical Peels

Out with dead, decaying skin cells & in with a healthy, radiant complexion.

Facial rejuvenation made easy.

Expert, Custom Chemical Peels in Chicago, IL

The skin you’re in today isn’t the same as it was two months ago. In fact, our skin regenerates entirely on something like a 28-day cycle. But as we age, this cycle slows. Decaying cells linger on the surface, where they sabotage the next generation of brighter, healthier skin. For those of us with acne, these oils and toxins feed outbreaks and increase our likelihood of scarring. But even without a chronic condition, a layer of last month’s skin makes it hard to achieve the radiance we desire. Our natural skin cycle could use a boost.

At Skin MD in Chicago, IL, we use customizable chemical peels to wash away oils, toxins, and bacteria while exfoliating and hydrating healthy skin. But chemical peels go far beyond corrective dermatology. They can also tighten skin, encourage the healing of new and old scars, and even reduce age spots or discolorations. This easy, in-office treatment takes only minutes of your time and ensures a healthy foundation for emerging skin—now and in the months ahead.

What is a Chemical Peel & What Can It Treat?

Healthy skin grows, dies, and sheds on a monthly basis. The process happens so slowly that we don’t even notice it. To promote this cycle, chemical peels encourage exfoliation and cleansing. They can even stimulate collagen production for tighter skin and faster healing.

Chemical peels rely on customizable formulas of skin-safe acids—usually glycolic, salicylic, and retinoic acids. These substances break the bonds that hold dead skin together. Dead, toxic cells fall or “peel” away while the remaining skin is nourished for near-comprehensive benefits.

Chemical Peels Can Treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Aging skin
  • Crow’s feet
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Discoloration
  • More

What Folks Are Saying About Chemical Peels

A Caring, Human Touch

Dr. Sergeyenko is fantastic. He’s very detailed and attentive and seems to really care about patients. The office is very well run and uses the right amount of technology to execute their business…but you can always get a human on the line if you need to. Flexible hours, too.

Always Welcoming New Patients

It was my first appt at the Evergreen location and I was very pleased with the service and staff. I saw Dr. Chris Krippinger. He knew right away what was happening to my skin and provided a treatment plan. It’s been two weeks and I am seeing the results. I recommend Skin MD.
