Chemical Peel Treatment

Chemical peels can significantly improve the texture, appearance, and health of lined, sun-damaged, and mature skin, skin with hyperpigmentation, uneven pigmentation, roughness, and acne scars, even after only one session. There are several types of medical-grade cosmetic chemical peel treatments available for different skin types and conditions, and our experienced aesthetician can meet with you and discuss your individual needs.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

During a chemical peel treatment, our esthetician applies a solution to your skin that chemically removes dead skin cells and other impurities from the top layers of your skin. There are different levels of chemical peels, from light to deep, each going a little bit deeper into the skin. In each case, the goal is to remove damaged, dead skin and to stimulate smoother, fresher skin to grow back in its place. The lighter the peel, the more sessions you may need to get the results you’re looking for, but the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery time is needed.

These treatments are designed to smooth wrinkles, minimize scars, and even out the tone of discolored skin. During the next few days after a chemical peel, your body will slough off the upper, sun-damaged skin layers, which signals the body to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid. These new skin building blocks regenerate smoother, firmer, more elastic, more evenly-toned skin. It’s a lot like turning back the clock on your skin. In addition to treating the face, chemical peels can also be used to alleviate sun-damaged skin on the arms, neck, hands, chest, and décolletage. 

What Kinds of Chemical Peels are There?

Your esthetician will diagnose your condition after discussing your needs with you and then be able to recommend and carry out a precise, low-risk chemical peel treatment tailored to your condition and skin type. The right strength and depth of acid solution will be formulated to exfoliate to the ideal level, and you will be prepared with instructions for post-peel care.

The following chemical peel treatments are available:


Glycolic Acid: Synthesized from sugar can, this is a light chemical peel that has almost no downtime and is especially good for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Melanage peel: Designed to brighten skin tone, the melanage peel uses retinoids at prescription strength to accelerate cellular turnover. The treatment starts in the office, but you take it home and continue from there with our instructions. It helps even skin tones and is a medium-depth treatment.

VI Peel: Suitable for all skin types, this peel uses a combination of salicylic acid, retinoic acid, trichloroacetic acid, vitamin C, and phenol to enhance skin texture, clarity, and tone for great anti-aging advantages.

VI Precision Plus: A boosted acids and nutrients formula minimizes the synthesis of melanin in the skin, stimulates quick cellular regeneration, and is very helpful for people who want to control melasma and pigmentation issues.
