Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels have been around since Ancient Egypt and the days of Cleopatra. According to some sources, Cleopatra used sour goat’s mild baths to beautify her skin. By applying different concentrations and combinations of chemicals on the skin, you can reduce fine lines, brown spots, and improve skin texture and clarity.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. It is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne or aging can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled spotted or scarred. The formula used is a peel is adjusted to meet your particular needs.

A chemical peel can help improve:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles or irregular skin pigmentation
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin

What a chemical peel won’t do:

  • Remove broken capillaries
  • Change pore size
  • Remove deep scars
  • Treat deep facial lines
  • Tighten loose or sagging skin

We offer two types of chemical peels:

Light Chemical Peel

A light chemical peel will provide subtle improvements at first, but a healthy glow will increase with more treatments. A light chemical peel might be the right choice if you have uneven pigment, dryness, acne or fine wrinkling. This kind of peel removes just the outer layer of skin (epidermis) in a light exfoliation and results in a healthier glow.

Medium Chemical Peel

With a medium chemical peel, your skin will be noticeably smoother and fresher looking. Acne scars, deeper wrinkles and uneven skin color can be treated with a medium chemical peel. The chemicals used for this type of peel will remove skin cells from both the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis).
