Peels are treatments that improve the texture and health of the skin by removing dead and damaged outer layers of skin. They can be a powerful way to remove facial blemishes, control acne, even out skin pigmentation, remove fine wrinkles, and leave you with glowing, healthy skin.
They have a transformative effect on your skin but need the right preparation. If you are interested in receiving a peel, please call to set up a complimentary skin analysis/consultation with one of our licensed skin care professionals prior to reserving a time for your peel. This analysis will ensure whether you are a candidate for the peel process.
Chemical Peels – Frequently Asked Questions
Superficial chemical (acid) peels can be performed on all skin types with great results. There are a few people who are ineligible for peels based on their past medical history and/or allergic reactions they have. Chemical peels should not be done on persons with a known history of skin disorders that are associated with skin hypersensitivity. Additionally, anyone who has an allergy to a component of the peel, or who is not willing to comply with the mandatory home care instructions after a peel, should not undergo this procedure.

- Improve fine lines and wrinkles

Shortly after the application of the peeling agent, most people experience a transient stinging sensation. This sensation is usually mild, but can be more intense with some of the stronger solutions. Each person is different and will have a unique experience. The use of a small, handheld fan during the peel really helps most people to feel quite comfortable throughout the treatment. After the peel, most people experience some mild to moderate redness for 4-24 hours. Within 3 days or so, there is usually some mild to moderate flaking of the skin, depending on the type and strength of the acid used. Most people experience the best results in a series of 6-12 treatments.
The most common side effects of a peel include persistent redness, skin sensitivity, and minor skin irritation. These are usually short-lived. A less common side effect can be hyperpigmentation, but even this is usually transient. It is very important that all persons undergoing a peel closely follow the post-peel instructions given to them at the time they leave the spa. This will greatly minimize any chance of experiencing the side effects.

This highly specialized, progressive epidermal peel significantly reverses signs of aging and/or treats resistant, impacted acne. For a day or two after application, the face looks slightly sunburned and does not peel. After that however, the depth and intensity of this treatment requires about a week of down time as the skin flakes away to emerge totally renewed. During recovery, lines, wrinkles, scars, dullness, hyper-pigmentation, blackheads, whiteheads, and ingrown hairs all appear to peel off and away.
*May be performed as often as every 6 weeks until skin smoothing goals are reached
