Chemical Peel

At our Anchorage, Alaska, med spa, chemical peels are an integral part of basic skin care maintenance for patients from Wasilla, Palmer, and surrounding areas. Chemical peels also effectively treat a number of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation and photoaging (wrinkles). When you visit FACES, a skin care specialist who is trained to evaluate your skin and its needs will determine the appropriate peel solution for you.

Chemical peeling increases the skin’s natural turnover cycle, which can slow as we age. Repeated, regular chemical peeling can stimulate collagen and elastin, which are the skin’s support structures. A chemical peel can also give the skin a smoother, clearer appearance, as well as assist in the treatment of acne or other skin conditions.



Our highly-trained providers look forward to meeting you and answering all of your questions.

Your Chemical Peel Procedure

Chemical peels generally require a 30-minute appointment but may need to be longer if combined with extractions for acne treatment. Our specialists at FACES may recommend periodic treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.

I have been going to the Medical Spa for several years and have been enormously pleased with how they've kept up with the latest technology and available treatments. They provide me with the information I need to make good decisions, don't keep me waiting when I arrive and always make sure I am comfortable throughout the procedures. [They] explain what [they are] doing and adjust [their] pace to fit my tolerance, if necessary. I have been quite pleased with the results I've had from the Medical Spa.

Patients getting a chemical peel for the first time are great candidates for the original VI Peel formulation. It’s an excellent solution for all age groups and skin types seeking multiple benefits from their peel—including skin that appears smoother, tighter, and more radiant. It is the ideal option for patients who want rapid, visible results. It’s also effective for patients with sensitive skin.

This is a powerful, mid-depth peel developed specifically to treat stubborn melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and pigmentation. The key ingredients for lightening and brightening are trichloroacetic acid, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, vitamin C, hydroquinone, hydrocortisone, and kojic acid. This is the ultimate treatment choice for dramatic results. The VI Peel is safe for all skin types.

  • Mid-depth peel
  • Stubborn melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots

VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus

This treatment contains the same powerful ingredients for lightening and brightening with the addition of benzoyl peroxide. This treatment is an excellent option for individuals with stubborn, resistant acne. VI Peel Purify is also safe for all skin types.

  • Helps smooth skin texture and repair acne scars
  • Brightens dark areas left after an acne scar
  • Soothes inflammation and redness

Depending on the peels used and the customized skin care treatment plan created by our specialists, a series of peels applied every 4 to 6 weeks may be recommended. We also offer facials and other customized treatments to boost your skin’s health and beauty.

VI Peel Advanced

An ideal option for patients with more significant signs of aging, such as deeper wrinkles and looser skin, VI Peel Advanced is a potent blend of ingredients that intensify results. This advanced peel penetrates deeper into the skin to combat the signs of aging, enhancing collagen stimulation to increase cell turnover and firm the skin.
