Chemical peels involve a process of applying a chemical solution to the skin which, after a day or so, begins to peel/slough off. This process can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands and even for the entire body. After the skin loosens and falls away, new skin is allowed to appear from underneath. The removal of dead skin cells stimulates the production of new skin cells. You will see a dramatic difference in skin color, texture and tone. The skin feels softer, smoother and has a very healthy glow to it.
The peel creates an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells. For people at high risk of skin cancer, a light chemical peel twice a year is a great way to keep skin cancer at bay. They are also very helpful for individuals with skin blemishes, wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin pigmentation. Chemical peels can be used on ALL skin types and conditions!
Chemical Peels give a whole lot of BANG for the BUCK!
*You may require 3-6 peels to get your face, neck, chest, etc.. right where it needs to be (ie where you are happy!), but after that, just 1-2 per year is all that is required to look and feel terrific! You should very much consider our peels for any skin conditions you are experiencing! They don’t disappoint!
Our peels are considered light to medium peels to medical grade.
Some peels are medical grade (PCA Skin, DMK) and some are a little lighter (Image Skincare), but all are very effective. Your skin will peel or slough only what it really needs to pull out. *You can experience peeling for only 2-7 days. However, if you do not see any visible flaking or peeling it doesnt mean the peel isn't working. Additionally, we give you a take-home aftercare kit which really accommodates any sloughing needs your skin may need. A $25-$50 post peel kit that is complimentary with every peel.

Conditions treated with Chemical Peels:
*We have seen amazing results with 3-5 peels for lifting pigmentation and melasma. These are darkening patches of skin that only continue to darken and increase over time. We are lifting the pigmentation off your face in the form of peeling (sloughing). From there, it’s ultra important for you to use SPF 30+ every day to protect your results and keep it from coming back. Combinations of glycolic, retinol, resorcinol, hydroquinone, salicylic and lactic are bringing real results.
Yes, fine lines and wrinkles can be lifted and diminished significantly. Depending on the depth of your wrinkling is dependent on the number of peels necessary. We always like to start with a series of 3 and go from there. Sometimes it only requires 3; sometimes a few more, but yes we can get there. And again after peeling, SPF becomes your friend and is needed to protect your results. Combinations of glycolic, retinol, salicylic, enzymes, plant stem cells, peptides are bringing real results.
Yes, we can diminish acne. Acne is in need of getting rid of the bacteria deep within the lower layers of your skin and therefore requires chemical peels that can reach the lower depths. *We recommend a series of 3 to start and usually will add in 20 minutes of pure oxygen with the first peel in your series. Oxygen opens your pores entirely and allows the peel to drop deeper. Oxygen will get rid of the congestion in your skin that is keeping your pores from breathing properly. Each peel in your series will be incrementally increased in strength and combinations to bring the clearing of your skin you are anticipating. Combinations of many things, but the main acids used are salicylic and glycolic (glycolic pulls all of the other hydroxys deeper; bringing better results.)
You guessed it we will customize your peel with combinations of all the ingredients we use for pigmentation lifting and acne. Additionally may recommend the first in your series to include 20 minutes of micro dermabrasion to resurface your top layer as well. Yes, again *we will recommend starting with a series of 3 peels.
Do you have persistent redness or even been diagnosed with rosacea? Believe it or not, the right chemical peels can definitely help with that. We use a combination of ingredients to help diminish your redness dependent on if you are more sensitive or less sensitive. Typically however enzymes along with Vit C are introduced. From there the proper serums are used to build the strength of your skin back up. Lots of antioxidants, stem cells, peptides are fed deep into the layers of your skin to reduce redness and bring real results. And again, *we like to start with a 3 series and go from there.
