Chemical Peels in McAllen, TX

Chemical peels are the go-to skin rejuvenation treatment for women and men alike. With a variety of peels available, you can customize treatment to achieve exactly the results you are looking for. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we specialize in a range of chemical peels which we offer to residents of McAllen, the Rio Grande Valley, Brownsville, and all of South Texas.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are topically applied formulas that revitalize the skin surface by creating an even and controlled shedding of the skin cells. This allows new layers to be exposed, creating a fresh appearance and smoother texture to the skin surface. A chemical peel can improve sun damage, acne scarring, blotchy pigmentation, and fine wrinkling. A peel can also improve acne-prone skin and clogged pores. Many of our peels are considered skin rejuvenation systems, because they include a regimen of at-home skin care products in addition to the chemical peel, maximizing results.

Melanage™ Skin Lightening Peel

The Melanage Skin Lightening Peel is a superficial peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of hyper-pigmented skin, which involves a medicated masque and an at-home regimen. This peel is safe and effective for all skin types, including dark skin. There is no pain and little to no irritation during the application of the mask, and typically, the irritation level on the following days is more like a sunburn.

Melanage™ Skin Brightening System

The Melanage™ Skin Brightening System is a deeper peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of brown spots. This peel is designed specifically for darker skin types who have uneven skin tone with deeper brown spots. It is a painless peel involving a medicated masque and an at-home regimen for one month follow the peel. This treatment has one day of downtime when the peel is applied to the face; otherwise, you can return to work the following day with an irritation level similar to a sunburn. This peel has yielded dramatic difference with only one application.

Melanage™ Minipeel Skin Enhancement System

The Melanage™ Minipeel Skin Enhancement System is designed to improve skin texture, tone, and sun damage, targeting mild brown spots and fine lines on the face. This is the less-intensive version of the Melanage Skin Brightening System and must be used on lighter skin types without extensive hyperpigmentation/brown spots. It is designed to be administered over the course of two to three in-office treatments for enhanced skin brightening and smoothing effects, but you will see a difference with only one peel. This peel has very little downtime, is painless, and contains an at-home regimen to amplify and extend the chemical peel’s benefits.

Actinage™ Skin Clarifying Peel System

The Actinage™ Skin Clarifying Peel System is a superficial, yet powerful chemical peel designed to target patients of all skin types and with acne problems. It combines the powerful effects of salicylic, mandelic, and azelaic acids in combination with retinol for the treatment of oily and blemish-prone skin. This highly effective peel has a reduced risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which allows all skin types to be treated and can be performed in a series of four to six treatments every month for enhanced clarifying effects. This peel has anti-aging benefits as well as treating the source of acne, creating a healthy and pain-free acne treatment. This comprehensive treatment also includes a complete home care system of products that amplify and extend the chemical peel’s benefits.

Micronage Skin Refining System

The Micronage Skin Refining System is a peel for all skin types, which gives enhanced exfoliation that uses gentle acids to restore your healthy complexion. This can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with microdermabrasion to maximize results. Micronage takes the skin rejuvenation process one step further by amplifying and extending the exfoliation process. The peel is complemented with a take-home product kit precisely tailored to maximize the results of the treatment. Optimal results are typically achieved in a series of two to four treatments.
