Chemical Peels

Whatever your age or skin type, our facial peels will help to enhance your appearance and self confidence. During the peel, our clinical aesthetician applies a glycolic or salicylic acid solution to your cleansed facial skin, a process that usually takes no more than 15 minutes.

Following your peel, you may first notice that your skin feels cleaner, smoother and has a healthier glow. Eventually, damaged layers of skin peel off, enabling rejuvenated skin to appear. Periodic treatments may be necessary until the desired effects are achieved.

Glycolic and salicylic acid peels work actively to:

  • Improve the quality of the skin’s surface and reveal a healthy, refined and glowing appearance.
  • Serve as an acne treatment for eruptions, scars, blotchy pigmentation and uneven skin texture.
  • Slow the aging process and potential for wrinkles by increasing the collagen and elastin density in the underlying layers of skin.
  • Increase skin moisture levels through deep facial peel exfoliation
