Chemical peels are a safe, effective way to refresh the skin and remove fine lines, age spots, and other imperfections. During the procedure, a formulated chemical solution is applied to the skin, and the damaged outer layer is peeled off to reveal the beautiful, unblemished skin underneath. We offer glycolic peels, SkinMedica’s Illuminize and Vitalize peels, the Vi peel and TCA peels of various strengths. Side effects vary between peels with mild redness, shedding, and a sunburn-like effect resulting in the hours after a superficial peel and scabs and redness resulting from the medium peel. Patients who undergo superficial peel can typically return to work the next day, while medium peel patients may need a week to recuperate.
We offer special packages in conjunction with microdermabrasion treatments as well!
