How chemical peels work

While all chemical peels include different ingredients to accomplish different specialized tasks, the general idea of a chemical peel is to exfoliate your skin and remove the damaged top layer.

Concentrated ingredients like salicylic acid, lactic acid, retinoic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and Vitamin C penetrate your skin’s top layer where they can go to work drying out and agitating your outer layer of skin.

This causes the “peeling” or flaking associated with chemical peels, and it’s what reveals the younger and rejuvenated skin beneath.

Your Treatment Options

Chemical peels we offer

SkinMedica Illuminize Peel

The SkinMedica Illuminize Peel delivers an instant glow with no downtime and is suitable for all skin types. Illuminize improves skin tone and texture and requires no downtime.

SkinMedica Vitalize Peel

The most popular SkinMedica peel, Vitalize smooths texture and effectively fades signs of aging, sun damage, and acne, all while stimulating your collagen for ongoing improvement.

Skinmedica Rejuvenize Peel

Rejuvenize is the strongest SkinMedica peel and offers significant skin correction. You’ll enjoy tighter, younger, clearer skin after just one treatment, with a series of treatments reducing sun damage, melasma, and acne scarring.

SkinCeuticals Pigment Balancing Peel

The Pigment Balacing peel is for those whose main concern involves pigmentation like freckles, acne scars, brown spots, and sun damage. This peel is great for darker skin tones because it targets hyperpigmentation.

SkinCeuticals MicroPeel

For immediate hydration, exfoliation, and brightening results without downtime, think MicroPeel. We can improve the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, and pore size while infusing your skin with nourishment.

Perfect Peel

Perfect Peel is an effective medium-depth peel that’s safe for all skin types and tones. Nearly painless and with very little downtime, patients love Perfect Peel’s ability to fight acne scarring, melasma, texture and more.
