A Chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin.  Facial skin is mostly treated, and scarring can be improved.  Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin.

One of our most common services is a Dermaplane plus a chemical peel.  This service is recommended to be done every 4-6 weeks for  regular maintenance.



AlphaHydroxy Peel

Available in three different patented formulas to effectively exfoliate, bleach and inhibit pigment production, this peel helps to repair and reduce breakouts, control oil, soften fine lines and provide a more even, smoother skin texture.

Glycolic Peel

This doctor-strength Glycolic acid therapeutic treatment sloughs away dead skin cells and loosens congested follicles, making it a great treatment for combating acne.  Glycolic acid is also known to be effective in diminishing fine lines and superficial wrinkles.

Sensi Peel/Ultra Peel

This exfoliating treatment comes in two different formulations and is primarily for sensitive skin types.  With Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) and plant-derived progesterone as two of its major ingredients, this light peel leaves your skin feeling plump and hydrated.  This is a great choice for those who have rosacea and is also wonderful for pigment control and acne, due to its antibacterial properties.

TCA Peel (15%) Trichloroacetic Acid

(TCA) can be an effective way to soften facial acne scarring, and is most commonly used for more intense peeling.  Fine surface wrinkling, superficial blemishes and more in-depth pigment problems are also often treated with this peel.

Salicylic Peel

Ideal for acne, blackheads, whiteheads, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, sun damage and oily skin.  Helps restore fresh looking and healthy skin through the production of new collagen.

Lactic Peel

If you have age spots, freckles, sun spots and hyperpigmentation, this peel will help to lighten and correct these skin problems.  It also works well to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
