chemical peels

Medical grade chemical agents are used to resurface and if done more aggressively remove the top layers of the skin.  We offer a variety of medical grade peels to treat a number of skin conditions. Chemical peels can be done at different depths (ranging from superficial to deep) to achieve specific results.  

PROCEDURE TIME

30 - 60 minutes

RECOVERY TIME

Light Peels, no downtime | Medium Peels, 3 - 7 days downtime | Deep Peels, 7 - 14 days downtime

WHAT IT TREATS

  • Uneven Pigmentation

  • Fine lines

  • Acne Scars

  • Dry Skin

  • Aging skin

LIGHT PEELS: Light peels, which exfoliate only the outer layer of skin (epidermis), can help improve uneven pigmentation, fine lines, acne and dry skin. After a light peel, there may be some redness, irritation and dryness followed by scaling that ends in 3-7 days.

MEDIUM PEELS: Medium-deep peels can target acne scars, wrinkles and smooth uneven skin texture by removing damaged skin cells from both the epidermis, as well as the upper layers of the dermis. For medium-deep peels, there will be more intense redness (like sunburn) and possible swelling. The skin may darken and form crust that peels off over a period of 7-14 days revealing new, brighter looking skin.

DEEP PEELS: Deep peels can achieve the most dramatic, long lasting results, but involves significantly more downtime. After any peel, it is important to avoid any unnecessary sun exposure and always where sun protection.

Two of our favorite peels!

perfect peel (prescriptive)

This peel is a premier advanced medical grade peel. This peel is available for use on any skin type. We typically treat melasma clients with this peel since an IPL/BBL is contraindicated. The perfect peel improves the clarity, tone and texture of skin, reduces hyper pigmentation, controls acne and the appearance of acne scarring, reduces pore size, softens fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for more youthful looking skin.

Obagi Blue Radiance (prescriptive)

Using a blend of Salicylic acid, lactic, glycolic acids and others, a soothing solution is applied to the face.  There is a feeling of heat for 1 minute, but not painful. Post treatment skin will feel tighter, mild redness and mild peeling. Then you’ll be on your journey to revealing fresh glowing skin.

The benefit of the Obagi blue radiance peel is after just one treatment, this peel effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed, and radiant. You’ll see instant glowing results for many skin types. This peel results in an overall improvement in texture and tone, hyperpigmentation and sun damage and provides instant glow and smoother brighter skin


SKIN PEN

Microneedling is the perfect and most advanced way to receive results based skincare with NO downtime and at a lower cost.  Microneedling was developed to treat scar reduction most notably from acne. In addition, microneedling is known to reduce signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkes.  The needles create tiny punctures in the skin which initiates fibroblasts in turn producing collagen in response to the healing process. Microneedling jump starts your body’s natural collagen production process to create younger looking skin.

DERMAPLANING

Dermaplaning is a manual skin resurfacing treatment that takes exfoliation to a different level.  This safe resurfacing treatment is recommended for those with sensitive, rough, uneven, or dry skin. Dermaplaning exfoliates the top layer of skin with a painless blade instrument to reveal soft even skin.

SKIN TREATMENTS

Medical grade facials by customization.  Our esthetician will evaluate your skin and discuss with you your concerns and treatment goals.  Benefits of Facials are to improve the clarify of the skin, reduce blemishes, and provide specific services to fit your individual needs.

FIRE AND ICE

The Fire & Ice Facial is a customized procedure that involves the application of two distinct masques, one for exfoliation and intensive resurfacing, followed by another rejuvenating masque to hydrate. The results include glowing, brighter skin, renewed skin cell production, deeply cleansed pores, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Fire & Ice Facial can also be used as a component of an acne treatment regimen.

The antioxidant-infused, lightly cinnamon-scented “fire” masque will tingle a bit as it works its intensive resurfacing process. This is followed by a soothing, or “ice,” masque that contains aloe vera gel and green tea, licorice, grape seed, and rosemary extracts. Treatments can be scheduled every few weeks, and with each treatment, incremental improvements can be attained.

Relax, and consider these three reasons for choosing the Fire & Ice Facial for your next appointment:

  • The facial is tailored to meet your needs. It is appropriate for most ages and skin types.

  • There is less risk involved and no downtime because no chemical peels or lasers are used. There are no negative side effects.

  • The glowing, tightened skin and aggregate results have earned it the nickname “The Red Carpet Facial.” Dramatic effects can be achieved without invasive surgical procedures.

Microdermabrasion

A non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that gently exfoliates or polishes away the top layer of dead skin cells, while stimulating collagen growth, to reveal healthy new skin that feels smoother and brighter. This is commonly done with a diamond tip or crystals. This treatment is typically added on to skin care treatments and peels.
