Chemical Peels

Chemical peels remove damaged skin on the face, neck and chest to significantly improve texture and tone. Specific acids 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.

There are different depths of peels and the results you seek will dictate the most effective peel for you. They are classified by Tier 1-3.

A T1 peel causes superficial dryness that lasts 3-5 days with minimal exfoliation.

Our most popular chemical peel is a T2 with moderate sloughing which lasts 4-6 days.

T3 peels create a significant amount of exfoliation, lasting 7-10 days.

Minimal redness can be expected in the first 24 hours and mild to moderate exfoliation will take place starting on day 3. Most activities can be resumed after 24 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 following your treatment.

There are many different acids available to address different issues. Peels can be done on their own and some can be used to compliment facials, dermaplaning and microneedling.

What will chemical peels do?

  • Remove dead skin cells that cause the skin to look dull
  • Stimulate the regenerative process to help with anti-aging
  • Decrease fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture and tone
  • Reduce the appearance of melasma, hyper-pigmentation and age spots
  • Minimize enlarged pores
  • Reduce acne and post inflammatory pigment (red/brown)
  • Provide balance to  combination skin

Not all peels cause skin to actually “peel”.

Side Effects of Chemical Peels

TCA 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.
