Skin peels are a popular way to treat your skin and rejuvenate your appearance. Our aestheticians are skilled in a number of different types of peels, as this definitely is not a “one size fits all” technique. Different formulas and application times will be tailored specifically for your type of skin and problem areas. The treatment will leave you looking great and feeing refreshed. As with many other “no down time” skin rejuvenation techniques, a series of treatments may be required to achieve the desired effect.

How it works
Once we have assessed your problem areas, a treatment program will be developed. The peels are performed in our office by our skilled and experienced aestheticians in our treatment rooms. While you relax in this spa-like environment, your specifically selected peel formula will be used to rejuvenate your skin.
In most cases, you can return to normal activities right away although your skin may be somewhat red, especially if the peel is relatively deep. In addition to the use of sunscreen and avoidance of strong sun exposure, we will give you additional instructions on how to care for your skin after treatment to maximizes your results.
While you will likely see some improvement after a single treatment, we may recommend a series of treatments scheduled a few weeks apart for maximum benefit.
In addition to being a great stand-alone treatment it also is an excellent addition to other procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, that will improve your overall appearance and result.
Types of peels we use
- Glytone Peels deliver key ingredients deep into the skin where rejuvenation occurs. The result is an even treatment, consistent skin remodeling and fewer side effects as well as downtime. Patients must discontinue retinol and hydroquinone products two weeks prior to treatment.
- Pyruvic Acid Peels utilize the unique qualities of pyruvic acid to treat acne, decrease fine lines wrinkles, and signs of premature aging.
- Mandelic Acid Peels utilize the unique, naturally occurring qualities of almonds to gently minimize the signs of rosacea by working beneath the epidermis leaving the outer layer less irritated.
- Anti-Aging Hand Peel is a refining treatment that uses a blend of TCA and lactic acid to lighten dark spots, smooth hand texture, and rebuild collagen.
- TCA-LP 25% (trichloroacetic acid) is a moderate grade peel to decrease hyperpigmentation, fine lines, premature signs of aging and coarse wrinkles.
- The Eye/Lip Peel is the first FDA approved peel specifically for the delicate eye and lip area. The appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles are reduced. Due to enhanced collagen regeneration, the lips appear fuller with diminished fine lines.
Micro Peel intensifies a microdermabrasion treatment by adding a chemical peel. This is a great way to boost your microdermabrasion and is also more cost efficient than having the treatments individually.
Over 1,300,000 chemical peel procedures were performed in the US in 2015, making it the 3rd most common cosmetic procedure behind Botox and dermal fillers.
