Chemical peelsChemical peels can work to boost your appearance, refresh the skin, and heal long-standing scars. With so many options available, it is important to understand the types of chemical peels and their benefits.

Types of Chemical Peels We Offer

VI Peel

Designed for treating acne, the VI Peel works to help rid the skin of hyperpigmentation and blemishes. During treatment, most people feel a slight tingling sensation but generally do not experience pain. Within a few days, your skin will begin to flake and peel, revealing healthy, new skin underneath.

Jessner Peel

A Jessner Peel works to reduce the appearance of scars, melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, age spots, and dark patches. This is a light to medium peel, and the peeling that you experience will likely be mild or moderate. Many people find results after one Jessner Peel, while others need several treatment sessions to experience the full benefits.

Glycolic Peel

A glycolic acid peel boosts the skin's collagen production, dissolves oils deep in the skin, exfoliates dead skin, and improves skin tone and texture. This peel is gentle, and most patients report that they do not feel any burning during their treatment.

Salicylic Peel

This treatment works to address acne and pigment changes in the skin. Some people feel a slight burning sensation during their treatment, and several treatments are typically needed in order to see maximum benefits.
