Transform dull skin into a healthy, radiant complexion
At Van Dyke Yun Dermatology, our team, including our esthetician Linda, loves chemical peels for recharging the skin—reducing signs of sun damage and aging, as well as treating certain types of acne. Tried and true, peels have been used throughout time and continue to be one of the most effective and efficient skin treatments to date.
With each peel, you’ll see improved tone and texture and an increase in collagen and elastin production. Another benefit of chemical peels are better absorption of skin care products and smoother makeup application.
"Today I was reminded why I've been seeing Dr Yun for 3 years. Work had put me in a time crunch, and not only did Dr Yun come up with a thoughtful plan for my botox request, she brought back up medications she thought would be good for my acne and excoriation, checked in about the mental health concerns that had been exacerbating the latter, and gave suggestions prepping for my upcoming wedding all in TWELVE. MINUTES. I have never waited long, unlike in other popular dermatologist offices, and Dr. Yun never forgets about her comprehensive role of doctor beyond just cosmetic procedures."- K.S. / Google / Sep 15, 2023
"Dr Jasmine Yun listens to every single detail/ concern, without showing judgement. She addresses all of it. I could not be more satisfied. I travel from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles twice a year, and I see her every visit. She really is amazing, down to earth and incredibly kind. I had a dermatologist in my area, but he retired. I spent lots of money and time, trying to find somebody to give me the results I was looking for with my Botox, filler, and specifically the asymmetry I saw with my face. Dr. Jasmine was referred to me by a friend who travels from Pittsburgh to appear in commercials, sitcoms and music videos,. I know she treats celebrities, but I never feel like I am any less important than any of her patients. Not to mention., She is also a pathologist, and pays special attention to everything on my skin that may not ook right. Just an added bonus, on top of a meeting my cosmetic needs. Just love her and her staff."- T.W. / Google / Sep 11, 2023

"A wonderful experience from the online booking to a welcoming front and back office, to a clear and comprehensible visit with the doctor. I LOVE the Zocdoc booking experience instead of the games that schedulers play with appointments. Feel so lucky to have found this office and will definitely be back for my dermatology needs."- J.D. / ZocDoc / Aug 04, 2023
What exactly is a "peel?"
A chemical peel is an incredibly quick and easy procedure whereby a solution is applied topically to cleaned skin and allowed to permeate. Serum or moisturizer is then applied as needed, followed by sunscreen. And that’s it! Over the next few days, the top layers of treated skin will slough off to reveal fresher, healthier skin.
It’s called a peel because you may experience exfoliation like flaking or peeling (depending on the type and strength of peel you receive), but you don’t have to peel for it to be effective!
What chemical peels do you offer?
- Jessner’s Peel
- Containing a blend of powerful ingredients including lactic acid and salicylic acid, our Jessner’s peel is ideal for patients with oily, acne-prone, and/or sun damaged skin. You can expect flaking and exfoliation in 3-4 days following your peel, with optimum results of clearer, healthier skin with a week.
- TCA Peel
- Incredible versatile and every dermatologist’s favorite, TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels are excellent for treating fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing the appearance of pores, improving uneven tone and texture, and revealing a radiant glow. Depending on the strength of your TCA peel, you can expect your skin to slough off or peel for about a few days, revealing more youthful, undamaged skin in about a week.
- The world's leading professional depigmentation method for treating the most severe and stubborn skin spots. Excellent results in the short and long term thanks to its unique dual action mechanism: corrective and regulatory. On the one hand, it eliminates the visible spot, but also acts on the source of the problem, regulating the overproduction of pigment to prevent its reappearance. A two part treatment product, the initial treatment is an in-office procedure with application of the Cosmelan cream mask (Cosmelan 1). You will leave this mask on for the amount of time specified by your Medical Provider. This may be from 4 to 8 hours depending on your skin type. You will remove the mask with a neutral cleanser and apply the special post treatment cream that comes with your Cosmelan Pack.
