Chemical Peels

Purchase a Peel Series of (3) $313 normally $375.

On your purchase of a peel series we highly suggest purchasing our take home peel kit.  

This kit will include a mini size of our cleanser, serum & moisturizer.  You will be able to use this throughout the duration of the 3 peels. 

*We have the availability to deepen the peel process by layering.  We do not recommend this on the first peel session.  If you and your Aesthetician decide to deepen the peel with an added layer it will be an additional $35.

Chemical peels are solutions that are designed to remove the top-most outer layers of the skin so that new, regenerated skin replaces the old.   Peels can improve uneven skin tones related to age spots, acne scarring, excessive oil and breakouts, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, poor circulation, and skin laxity.  Chemical peels are classified from light to deep. The depth and strength of the peel depends on the type of acid as well as the pH balance. The deeper the peel, the more profound the results and the longer the recovery time. 

Light Chemical Peels
Light peels wound the entire epidermis and stimulate the regeneration of a new epidermis. This level of chemical peel may produce a burning sensation during the procedure. Recovery from light peels is quick.


Medium Chemical Peels
Medium depth peels involve wounding to the upper level of the dermis. Injury to the dermis stimulates the formation of collagen and “plumps” up the skin. Medium chemical peel solutions may be used when a slightly deeper peel is warranted. 

To be noted:  Everyone reacts differently to a chemical peel, some clients may peel, may flake, may show no signs of shedding.  If you are one of the clients who shows no flaking, or peeling this is 100% normal, and the peel worked.

The peels listed below are listed from light - medium peels.

The skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the first 48-72 hours post treatment.

After 48 hours, a slight flaking may occur for 3-5 days. Flaking can easily be controlled with moisturizers. Do not pick, peel, or scratch the flaking. Do not use any means of exfoliation or loofahs. This may result in scarring or hyperpigmentation.

Use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ containing UVA/UVB protection with sun blockers such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide on the treated area daily if exposed to the sun.

To minimize side effects and maximize results, apply post procedural products as instructed by your Aesthetician.

You may resume normal skin care regimen, including the use of Retinoid medications, topical exfoliating agents, and Hydroquinone products, only after the peeling process is complete.
