Chemical Peels


Chemical peels can range from light to more aggressive treatments. A light or micro peel involves the application of a mild chemical to exfoliate your skin. This procedure will help improve the softness and brightness of your skin. Additionally, micro peels will help diminish large pores and discoloration of the skin. Repeat treatments along with a comprehensive skin care program are recommended to experience the best results.

Another option is to choose a more aggressive chemical peel technique used to improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. Since this peel uses a more potent chemical than a micro peel, you will most likely experience more drastic results, however, your skin will need more recovery time, as well as home care and refresher peels, before revealing a fresh, new look.

VI PeelCosmetic surgeon Dr. Horowitz is pleased to offer the new ViPeel, which combines the ingredients of some of the most popular chemical peels, achieving results beyond those possible with any of the individual ingredients alone.

The ViPeel is the popular skin treatment that Dr. Horowitz discussed during his appearance on the Dr. Oz show!  It’s a favorite of the ladies of “The Housewives of Beverly Hills” and the “Millionaire Matchmaker”, Patti Stanger.   The Vipeel is a blend of TCA, Phenol, Salicylic acid, RetinA and Vitamin C.  It can be used for a variety of skin problems including fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, sun spots and brown areas (melasma).  What’s more, it can be used for all skin types, it’s done right in the office and is nearly painless.

The ViPeel is very attractive for both physicians and patients because the results approach those associated with more expensive and complicated laser treatments, but limits the cost, pain, recovery and complications that can be associated with those other procedures.”, comments Dr. Horowitz.

After the peel, recovery is easy and involves just “shedding” of the outer skin layers, which is managed with the ViDerm sunblock and moisturizer provided in your take-home kit, included with the purchase of each peel.
