Chemical Peels

​Chemical peels are used to resurface the skin for improvement of different skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation from sun or prior injury and acne to name a few.

We provide safe, no downtime peels and some peels with minimal downtime.  Choosing a chemical peel is something we believe you should do with a professional.  We use a variety of peel ingredients including AHA, BHA, TCA, Botanical, enzymes and retinols.   Some tips regarding peels:

  • Do not have another facial treatment 7 days prior or 14 days after a peel, this includes WAXING the area.
  • Follow the home care instructions given by your therapist to optimize your outcome results and minimize any side effects
  • No direct sun exposure immediately after a peel
  • No changing of skincare products during the 14 days after a peel unless instructed by your therapist.
  • Call us with concerns.  No concern is too small, we want your feedback
  • We may ask you to return to the office for a follow up during the peel process
