Chemical Peels

Light to medium chemical peels for face and body are custom-designed to counteract signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, scarring, trauma scarring, melasma (discoloration from birth control pills or pregnancy) and pre-cancerous skin conditions.

Peels involve application of a chemical solution to sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented and finely wrinkled facial areas. By peeling away the skin’s top layers, imperfections are diminished, and new skin is rejuvenated, giving the skin an improved texture and appearance. The strength of the chemicals and the length of time the solutions are left on the skin vary. Generally, the most superficial peels use alphahydroxy acids (AHA) such as glycolic or salicylic acid. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are stronger, and yield greater depth of the peel.

All chemical peels may result in some minor to moderate recovery. During your complimentary skin assessment, your practitioner will discuss the most appropriate peel based on your skin type and goals.
