From “lunchtime” salicylic acid peels to deeper, more dramatic treatments, our chemical peels remove dull outer layers and generate new, undamaged skin with stunning results. Typically performed in a series, these treatments can correct a variety of problems – lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and acne – and can be applied to the face, back or chest.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are specialty skin care treatments that involve the application of mild acids to the skin. The most common chemical peels contain a range of different nutrients and acids such as salicylic and glycolic acid. These components are safe for the skin and act as exfoliating agents, ridding your skin of dead cells and debris. Your particular peel type will be dependent on your specific skin care needs.
What Conditions Do Chemical Peels Treat?
These treatments are a great choice for those struggling with hyperpigmentation, melasma and acne. For those who have sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne or age spots, a mild acid may suffice. If you’re interested in reversing the early signs of aging and reducing acne scarring, you may want to consider chemical peels.
What to Expect During Treatment
During a peel session, most people feel a slight burning and stinging sensation. This feeling usually lasts about five minutes. In addition to these treatments, we also offer various skin care products to help nourish your skin.
Results of Peels
Mild peels offer a nice radiance and glow with minimal downtime.* This may be repeated at four-week intervals until optimal results are reached. Your skin is slightly sun sensitive after a chemical peel, so sun protection is key.
