A Chemical Peel is a full facial service. Chemical peels are topical acid solution used to peel away the skin damaged outer layers. An exfoliant applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and exfoliate the skin. Stimulating cell turnover will help to restore the skin to a more youthful appearance. We use a variety of Professional Chemical Solutions which includes Jessner’s, Trichloroacetic Acid(TCA), Citric Acid, Kojic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Glycol Acid, Lactic Acid, Retinol, Hydroquinone, and Hydroquinone free. Many skin conditions can be improved when receiving a series of peels, such as aging sun-damaged skin, acne and acne scarring, altered pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Many skin conditions also show improvement from just one session. Results may include: improved skin tone, fewer breakouts, diminished appearance of scars, even skin color, refined skin pores, renewed elasticity and a healthy glow. With our peels our motto is “Minimum effort with Maximum results” meaning, you may or may not peel. We teach our clients not to associate visible peeling with actual results. If you do peel it may consist of light to medium flaking or medium to extreme peeling anywhere between 2-7 days. You still can continue your daily routines. If you do not peel you will still see a difference and improvement in your skin. We also require that you do not wash your face, work out, sauna, steam, or any outside activity directly in the sun for 24hrs after receiving one of our chemical peels. It also includes light extractions.
