About Chemical Peels
Our chemical peel at Hsu Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA is a topical chemical solution (medium depth) that is safe for all skin types. Beverly Hills, CA board-certifed plastic surgeon, Dr. Charles Hsu, will analyze your skin to provide you with just the right strength to achieve your aesthetic goals. Our medium-depth chemical peels (where the pH of the peel is between 1.3 – 1.4, and no more than 13% acid) are a wonderful anti-aging and preventative treatment for your face, neck, chest, and/or hand skin. This treatment is great for men and women, but it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, or patients with lupus.
If you have rosacea, acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, hormone induced melasma, and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for this topical chemical solution to blister the top layer of your skin so that it peels away to promote new skin regeneration. We recommend getting a chemical peel every month for 3 months to combat those specific problems. If you need a skin rejuvenation treatment to promote healthy skin growth for younger-looking skin, you can safely treat your facial skin with a chemical peel every 3 months for anti-aging prevention at Hsu Plastic Surgery. Call today.
Our Chemical Peel
Our office offers a medium-depth chemical peel to the superficial papillary dermis. This peel goes deeper than a light peel and therefore, provides more dramatic results. You can expect a longer peeling period, and should plan to be homebound since the face can be swollen, itchy, and red for about 10 days following the treatment.
Our chemical peels' main ingredients are:
- Kojic acid
- Salicylic acid
- Vitamin C
- Retinoic acid

"Went in today for a microneedling session with Mimi. She was absolutely fantastic! She was very thorough and explained the procedure well and answered all of my questions. She was easy to talk to and was very professional. The receptionist was also very welcoming and I didn't have to wait at all. The office is very clean, quiet and private. The only thing is I wish I knew about the parking situation. It gets pricey if you park in the lot, there's meter parking along Doheny."- S.T. / Yelp / Jul 11, 2017

Prime + Glow Program
We are excited to offer our Prime + Glow signature wrinkle prevention program to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles using a combination of our medium-depth chemical peel alongside preventative injections of BOTOX®. We have 3 different packages to meet the needs of our younger patients. We will prime your skin with a lighter dosage of BOTOX to ward off the start of fine lines and wrinkles, and then apply our signature chemical peel designed to brighten up your skin.
What to Expect
Before we start the treatment, we will cleanse the skin with acetone. Then, the chemical solution will be applied to the face with a small square of gauze. Our chemical peel takes just a few minutes in our office with 5 – 7 firm passes with the peel over your face. A soothing ointment will be applied to the skin after the peel application. You will not need to wash your face that night. The morning after, we ask that you wash your face with the provided towelette for best results.
In the days that follow, your treated skin will begin to naturally peel. Please resist the urge to pick or pull your skin to avoid scarring. Also, stay out of the sun, and keep your skin protected from the sun's harmful rays.
