Fine Lines

Facial peels may drastically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and expression lines leaving skin smooth.

Sun Damage

UV rays not only affect our skin in ways we can't see, but they can also leave very visible issues that skin peels help make less noticeable.

 

Blackheads

Chemical peels can be very effective in removing and minimizing excess, stubborn blackheads by penetrating clogged follicles.

Clogged Pores

Chemical peels effectively remove dead skin that clogs & contributes to large sized pores that turn into blackheads & whiteheads.

Acne Marks

Skin peels can dramatically improve red, pus filled acne blemishes and improve the appearance of mild acne scars.

Age Spots

Various strength skin peels commonly result in a marked improvement of dark skin discoloration commonly referred to as age spots.

 

Hyperpigmentation

Chemical peels, especially AHA & Vitamin C peels can reduce discoloration, freckles & large dark spots leaving skin radiant.

Uneven Skin

Chemical peels improve overall skin texture and remove debris from the skin's surface resulting in a softer & smoother feel.

Peel Process

Superficial or Light peels are the mildest type of chemical peel and can be used on all skin types. These mild peels remove only a small part of the epidermis or outer layer of skin and are most often used to improve the appearance of fine lines, mild scarring and minimal hyperpigmentation.

Superficial peels should be repeated every 2-3 weeks. A series of 6-8 consecutive treatments are recommended for best results. After 6-8 consecutive treatments, peels may be repeated monthly to maintain results.

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are the gentlest acids used in skin peels.

Medium-depth skin peels penetrate further than superficial peels to remove the epidermis and some of the dermis, or underlying middle layer of skin. Medium peels are used to clear pores, reduce wrinkles, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and precancerous growths.

Medium strength peels cause excessive pinkness for two to three and may not completely fade away until the skin has fully healed. New skin should appear within the first two weeks after treatment.

Medium-depth peels typically use TCA, as a main ingredient. The Jessner solution, a popular skin peel, contains a combination of resorcinol, salicylic acid and glycolic acid and may be layered to create a deep peel.

Deep skin peels cause a second-degree burn to the skin penetrating all the way to the subcutaneous, or third and deepest, layer of skin. They are used to treat melasma, deep wrinkles, scarring, sun damage and precancerous growths of the skin.

The skin may remain extremely red for weeks and up to 2 months. Full recovery can take several months. Petroleum jelly or another ointment may be applied after a deep peel to protect the skin. Deep peels are not done on darker skin types because they tend to bleach the skin (hypopigmentation).

TCA is the ingredient of choice for most deep peels, but the Jessner solution can be applied in layers to effect a deep peel.

CHEMICAL PEEL ACID TYPES

Salicylic
Salicylic is a highly effective superficial peeling agent and one of the most effective ingredients to help combat the cause of facial oil, acne and blemishes.


Glycolic
Glycolic is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that effectively exfoliates and moisturizes the skin. This is one of the most common types of peel solutions used.


Jessner
Jessner is a popular medium depth chemical peel that contains a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol to help improve skin health.


AHA Vitamin C
Combines the power of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to resurface skin with antioxidant rich vitamin c for amazing skin brightening results.

TCA
Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) is a rapid penetrating agent that is commonly used as a spot treatment on various parts of the body in addition to the face.

 

Fusion
Best selling peel that combines glycolic, tca, salicylic and lactic acids with fruit enzymes. Suitable for all skin types and issues with minimum downtime.

Alpha Beta
Alpha Beta peels combines the power of Beta Hydroxy Acide (Salicylic) and Alph Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic) for a totally unique and superior facial peel. As the salicylic penetrates clogged and oil-laden pores, the glycolic acid goes to work on the skin’s surface by evenly exfoliating superficial dead skin and debris. The two-step technology of the alpha-beta peel is an ideal system for acne-sufferers!
