Best Chemical Peels in Dubuque.jpg


If you are ready to achieve softer, more youthful skin, chemical peels in Dubuque may be the treatment for you. A custom chemical peel can leave your facial skin looking and feeling fresh and supple—taking years off your appearance. 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 Faces Medspa, our skincare experts provide several customizable gentle peels including lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acids, as well as two advanced chemical peel options: the VI Peel and the SkinCeuticals TCA Peel. 







VI Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that reduces the appearance of skin damage, aging skin, pore size, softens lines and wrinkles, and clears acne skin conditions. On top of all of these benefits, the VI Peel stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for firmer, more youthful-looking skin. 


VI Peel is for men and women who desire to have younger-looking, healthier skin will benefit from this peel. VI Peel customized facials are available for:

  • Aging skin

  • Acne-prone skin

  • Acne scars and skin damage

  • Sunspots and pigmentation (brown spots)

The VI Peel will improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. It also reduces age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation, and Melasma. 


During the procedure, the chemical solution will be applied to your skin using a soft brush or applicator. Prior to the treatment, your Faces Medspa skin expert will decide the exposure and level of treatment required to achieve your desired results. The procedure can last 15 minutes to an hour depending on your unique needs. 


Smart TCA Peel significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, laxity, and stubborn discoloration. Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) is known as the gold-standard ingredient in chemical peeling – as it’s a tried-and-tested acid used for decades by doctors. 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 at Faces Medspa in Dubuque features a patented post-peel Restorative Masque to soothe and reduce skin temperature immediately following peel application. 

  • Visibly improves signs of aging, including discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and pore size

  • Provides exfoliation and improvement in skin texture 

  • Clinically tested on a variety of skin tones, including deeper skin tones (Fitzpatrick I-IV). Consult your skincare professional to ensure the peel is right for your skin tone.

What is the recovery after a Chemical Peel?

After receiving a chemical peel, patients are advised by the Faces Medspa team to stay out of the sun for week post peel. Avoid heavy sweating for the first few days after a peel. Immediately after a peel, the skin will feel tight tight and warm and may look red, similar to a sunburn. You should use a soap-free gentle cleanser (avoiding wash cloths and scrubs), a hydrating moisturizer twice daily or as needed (to relieve dryness), and a daily sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. Over the next week, the outer most layer of the skin may peel and fall of naturally, reveling the new, healthy skin below. Do not pick at the peeling skin because it may lead to scarring. Continue protecting the skin with sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher every day after the skin has fully recovered.

What is a VI Peel?

A VI Peel is a chemical peel that is lighter than traditional treatments but still provides powerful and effective results. The unique combination of potent ingredients works to correct skin problems on a cellular level, without burning off layers of the skin. The procedure results in healthier, younger-looking skin with no pain, no preparation, and very little recovery time.

Which chemical peel is right for you?

Which chemical peel is right for you? The answer is based on the condition of your skin, and the level of improvement you want to achieve in your skin quality, as well as any skin conditions you want to resolve, such as acne, uneven texture, uneven tone, wrinkles, lines, and hyperpigmentation issues.

How do chemical peels work?

Essentially, chemical peels accelerate your skin’s exfoliation, with each peel formula reaching varying depths of the skin structure. These layers then shed or peel away in the days ahead, revealing refreshed, youthful skin.

What is the Smart TCA peel?

The Smart TCA peel is the deepest peel Faces Medspa offers and provides deep exfoliation to remove dead, dry skin cells while improving more advanced signs of aging. One of the secrets behind this peel is the fact it’s paired with the Smart TCA Restorative Masque after application. The botanical blend within the masque binds moisture to the skin to lock in hydration and sustain treatment results.

What to expect from a Smart TCA chemical peel:

Improved appearance of moderate to advanced signs of fine lines and wrinkles Faded discolorations, sun damage and hyperpigmentation Revitalized skin texture for a more youthful glow Enhanced comfort post-peel with the Smart TCA Restorative Masque

Who is a good candidate for a Smart TCA chemical peel?

You may be a candidate for the TCA peel if you have fine lines, hyperpigmentation, blotchy skin, unevenness, acne, acne scars, superficial scars, black heads or sun damaged skin. Schedule a consult with a Faces Medspa skin expert for a skin analysis to see if you are a candidate.


BBL (Broadband Light) is a no-downtime, non-ablative procedure that utilizes pulsed broadband light and photo-thermal energy to reduce the visible signs of aging.
