Chemical Peels

Each chemical peel treatment employs a combination of exfoliating acids, skin brighteners and skin strengtheners to provide maximum benefits with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime. Chemical peels help diminish fine lines, lighten pigmentation and improve skin tone.  Peels improve the quality of the skin by removing damaged outer layers, enhancing quality and smoothing texture. Peels are designed to target skin imperfections, and will improve the visible appearance of photodamaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentary irregularities and acne scarring. Our medical aesthetician will help guide you in choosing the appropriate plan of care tailored to your individual skin care needs. Contact us today to get started.
