About Chemical Peels
Using the highest quality in chemical peel solutions, our office provides patients with several choices for a personalized chemical treatment for more radiant skin. In our Allen and Plano, TX offices, our providers work to solve skin abnormalities like scars, fine lines, wrinkles, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. A chemical peel is a rejuvenating facial treatment that removes dead or damaged skin cells by applying a specific dermal solution to the skin. Once the solution is set, the uppermost layer of skin begins to peel. Your skin will then undergo a natural repairing process that will reveal a smoother, clearer complexion. If you want to improve the overall look of your skin, call TruDerm in Allen and Plano, TX to schedule a private consultation with one of our aestheticians.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At TruDerm, we understand that everyone has a different skin type, which is why we offer light, medium, and deep chemical peels to meet the needs of our patient's skin concerns.
Light peels: A light peel is a great treatment option for those with minor skin concerns or for those who are receiving a chemical peel for the first time. It is so gentle and easy that it can be performed during your lunch hour. This level of peel will remove the outer skin layer (the epidermis), giving your face a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We typically recommend that you receive a light chemical peel about once a month for continued results.

"Dr.Adler is an exceptional dermatologist. I have visited several doctors for my moderate adult acne and kept getting pushed to use Accutane, which I was uncomfortable with; it was refreshing when Dr.Adler offered safer and more long term solutions that fit my needs. I am grateful that he didn’t try to hard sell anything and even recommended that I stay away from excessive products or treatments, but rather simplify my routine with a “less is more” approach. He always has a smile and great attitude during our visits. I would recommend him just based upon his bedside manner and the TruDerm environment alone, but his knowledge and expertise far exceeds the other Plano area dermatologists I have seen, so it is easy to tell everyone I know about him."- L.F. / Google / May 31, 2019
"My overall experience at this location (Legacy West) was amazing! The staff were very kind and patient. I’ve started using the products that were prescribed and I’m already seeing results! ❤️"- N.N. / Google / Nov 07, 2019
"I had a smallish cyst removed by Dr. Adler and couldn't be happier with the results. Having watched tons of Dr. Pimple Popper (lol) I was concerned with not fully removing the cyst and it coming back. Dr. Adler happily told me he was able to remove it all and applied the smallest fine-lined suture-line that healed completely flat and not noticeable to someone who wouldn't know what they were looking at. Super happy with the results since the area was such a sensitive spot for me. Plus Dr. Adler has terrific bedside manner and took great care in numbing me completely. I've also gone many times for laser hair removal. Everyone always has such a great attitude in there and treat you with respect and kindness. Highly recommend!"- A.O. / Yelp / Nov 05, 2019

Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
During your appointment, we will have you lay face up in one of our luxurious treatment chairs so you can be as comfortable as possible while we administer your peel. A team member will ensure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the personalized solution to your face and or neck. We will then spread the solution on the skin and allow it to work for the designated amount of time that was determined during your initial consult. Next, we will gently remove the peel from your skin and apply a neutralizing agent to ease any discomfort.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Based on the strength of the chemical peel you receive, you should expect the treated area to peel and itch for several days or weeks. We will go over ways to treat your skin after your procedure. Please note that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the recovery process, it's not healthy to scratch or peel your skin. Forcibly pulling off any skin could cause facial scarring.
