Our peels are customized to your specific skin type and condition. Chemical Peels remove the top layers of skin to even skin tones and for a healthier, refreshed appearance. Our peels are multiple acid and mid-depth, giving you less sting and burn and more results. You can boost you peel with a brightener and a retinol, please consult with your Aesthetician to find the best solution for your skin type and skin tone.
What to do prior to treatment
We request that you arrive with a clean, make-up free face
Drink plenty of water to help your skin recover.
Avoid excess sun exposure a week before your appointment. Sun damage could compromise your skin and make the treatment painful.
Do not use Retin-A/Retinol 7 days prior to treatment as this can thin your skin and compromise your treatment.
Consult with your medical provider regarding pretreatment with an antiviral if you have a history of cold sores.
Treatment is not recommended if you have been on Accutane within the last 6 months.
If you are currently pregnant or nursing, you are not a suitable candidate for a chemical peel.
What to expect during treatment
Peel appointments usually last 20-30 minutes.
Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired look. Please allow 4-6 weeks in between sessions to give your skin time to fully heal.
