A chemical peel is a cosmetic rejuvenation treatment that removes damaged skin on the face, neck and chest to restore the skin back to it’s youthful glow. Body peels fall into the T3 category and pricing and spacing of the treatments are dictated by treatment area(s).
TCA, vitamin A, lactic, glycolic, salicylic, kojic, resorcinol are commonly used acids in chemical peels of all tiers. Detailed post care will be given and covered during your peel treatment. Peels are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigment, improve tone and texture and reduce mild scarring. The result is smoother, more radiant skin and home care products will penetrate more effectively.

T3 – (medical peels) start at $300 for the face, body is TBD by consultation

Light Peel – T1
A superficial peel is considered the mildest type. It can be used to help prevent fine lines, uneven pigment and dry or oily skin conditions. It can help keep pores clean, treat fine lines, brighten the tone of the skin and increase cell turnover. Superficial chemical peels may be done in a series over the course of a few weeks to get the desired result.
Mid Depth Peel – T2
A medium depth peel is a moderate skin exfoliation treatment that is used to treat more pronounced wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, melasma, post inflammatory pigment and reduce light scarring. Mid depth peels will further enhance the absorption of other skin care products.
Medical Grade Peel – T3 (face and body peels available)
For those wishing to see more correction may opt for a 3 Step ZO Medical peel. A consultation is recommended before a body peel to provide specific pricing depending on area being treated.
What To Expect During a Chemical Peel
Minimal redness can be expected in the first 24 hours and mild to moderate exfoliation will take place starting around day 2-3. Most activities can be resumed after 48 hours. Full exfoliation may take up to 10 days for more aggressive peels. You should avoid topical prescriptions for 7 days prior to a chemical peel and avoid extended sun exposure prior to and following your chemical peel treatment.

We provide specific post care instructions depending on the peel you receive. Light peels create superficial dryness that lasts 3-5 days, while mid depth peels create more rejuvenation and results in a longer healing time. Moderate exfoliation is to be expected for 5-7 days post treatment on mid depth peels. A detailed instruction sheet is provided and a physical sun protection barrier is essential.
Chemical Peel Procedure
During a chemical peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution is applied, which may cause a brief stinging sensation. Some peels will remain on the skin for a period of time. Post care instructions are provided upon completion of the treatment.
Side Effects of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels can result in tingling or a stinging sensation that resolves itself within 20-30 minutes of the treatment. All peels can cause temporary redness and minor irritation, as well as mild to moderate flaking. After a chemical peel, it is essential to follow the proper post care instructions and keep the skin protected from the sun.
