A chemical peel is a simple, non-surgical procedure to remove the damaged, outer layers of the skin on the face. Blemishes and scars are reduced, giving the face a smoother, cleaner appearance. We offer a variety of strengths of peels catered to your skin type.
Superficial Peels are the mildest form of chemical peel. They are often referred to as “the lunchtime peel.” 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.
Chemical Peels are tailored per patient. 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.
