Chemical peels come in all shapes and sizes. They are used to remove the more stubborn top layers of skin that cause texture and color abnormalities and fine lines. They leave the skin looking more youthful and refreshed, and have minimal downtime or recovery. At Dubuque ENT, we utilize professional peel products that are stonger and more effective than those sold through beauty supply companies. Our skincare specialists can determine the type of peel that best suits your skin and your goals.
Some of our favorite gentle peels “light” peels are salicylic, lactic, and glycolic acid peels.
The VI purifying peel is highly effective in reducing acne and oily skin, decreasing congestion, and clearing the pores. It is ideal for younger patients, and soothes inflammation and redness in the skin
The Skinceuticals Smart TCA Peel is a higher-grade peel, and significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, laxity, and stubborn discoloration.

Ideal for all skin types and most skin tones, the Smart TCA Peel features a blend of 15% Trichloroacetic Acid with 3% Glycolic Acid. The Smart TCA Peel in-office treatment features a patented post-peel Restorative Masque to soothe and reduce skin temperature immediately following peel application.
The VI peel is a medium depth peel that uses a blend of ingredients (TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, ascorbic acid) to gently but powerfully resurface the skin of the face, and can be used in all skin types. It is excellent for reducing discoloration, improving skin texture, improving fine lines and wrinkles, and clarifying skin pores.
