Say Goodbye to Imperfections
What Is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the skin’s surface layers, forcing your body to quickly replenish it with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and rejuvenates like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually, giving the skin time to adjust.
What types of Chemical Peels do you offer?
We offer light-to-medium-depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.

Which Areas can Chemical Peels be Used?
Chemical peels are usually performed on the face but may also be used on the neck, décolleté and hands.
How Can Chemical Peels Benefit My Skin?
Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.
What Are Common Peeling Agents?
Some common peeling ingredients include alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and retinol. Alpha hydroxy acids include glycolic acid (from sugar cane), lactic acid (from milk), citric acid (from oranges and lemons), malic acid (from apples and pears), tartaric acid (from grapes) and mandelic acid (from bitter almonds). Salicylic acid is the only beta hydroxy acid. The strength of a chemical peel is determined by the type of ingredients used, their concentrations and the pH of the formulation.
Not all peels are created equally, and one type doesn’t suit all. Certain ingredients may be more effective for treating acne, while others may be more successful in treating hyperpigmentation or the signs of aging.
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight; treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take multiple treatments.
Use home care products consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results. Just as you exercise, you need to take time for your “daily skin care workout regimen” in the morning and evening.
