Chemical peels can improve the color, texture, and tone of the skin. Chemical peels are categorized based on the depth of the peel: superficial, medium, or deep. The depth of the peel will determine the amount of skin sloughing. A series of peels, done over weeks and/or months, along with a daily skin care regimen, results in skin exfoliation and creates a more youthful appearance. The peel solutions are derived from naturally occurring organic acids and are helpful in reducing photoaging, hyperpigmentation, surface roughness, freckling, and acne. At PSD, our dermatologist uses glycolic acid, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, kojic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, and combination peels.

Writing this after my second visit at Dr. Holder’s practice. I came in after a severe and unexpected break out.
Most importantly, my skin’s condition and overall feeling have shifted completely within a couple weeks. There’s no magic – from my experience, it really comes down to devotedly following a healthy regimen. Dr. Holder recommended one that works for me and helps me see the beauty of my skin, rather than its flaws. She’s extremely knowledgeable and devoted, very committed to achieving positive and visible results, and thorough. Maintenance of a healthy, vibrant looking skin is just as important to me as the immediate impact, which is why I booked peeling sessions with the practice for the next 6 months or so. Feeling good is priceless.
Beyond that, the staff is lovely, and the overall experience is of attention to detail and high awareness to personal hygiene. Highly recommend a visit.

I have struggled with terrible acne since I was 11 years old, and have tried everything. Now, my skin is clear, smooth, & toned. My skin is flawless! 1 peel????!!!!!  Seriously???!!! You are going to be amazed with your results! I have never woken up with truly clear skin. And now, I am!  I am ready for the next one in May!
