CHEMICAL PEELS

Like high-waisted jeans and crop tops, Chemical Peels are making a comeback and for good reason!

Chemical peels help even skin tone, reduce fine lines, improve overall texture, decrease acne scarring, smooth large pores, and remove rough spots and skin tags – all at a good price.

superficial peels

Superficial Peels are great for first time peelers who don’t want too much peeling or are starting out the peel season with something mild.

The most common peeling agents in a Superficial Peels are Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid, and more gentle ones are based with simple fruit enzymes. These peeling agents are blended with other mild potions to create a liquid or paste formula that is applied to the skin for a duration of time long enough to penetrate only the epidermis.  This process breaks down the binding elements of the skin’s top layer, causing dead skin cells to shed off to reveal the fresh, healthy underlying skin.

Superficial Peels are customized to address minor skin irregularities like discoloration, acne, surface scarring, fine lines, and sun spots. Superficial Peels are also used to prepare the skin for deeper peels or to enhance the efficacy of other more invasive procedures that treat severe conditions like cystic acne, melasma, photodamage, dyschromias, and actinic keratoses
