A chemical peel uses different acids to remove layers of damaged or aged skin, revealing newer, softer, younger-looking skin.  It is a treatment used to improve skin texture, smooth fine lines, and treat scarring. It is an effective anti-aging treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. A chemical solution is chosen based on individual skin concerns and is applied to the skin which causes exfoliation and, in the end, cellular regeneration.

The service takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and for most is typically pain-free. Some say they feel minor itching which only lasts a few minutes, until the product is neutralized. After 2-3 days you may experience light to moderate exfoliation (fluffing) typically around the nose and mouth. This only lasts a few days, and it is important to stay hydrated.

Some see immediate results and feel an instant glow while others go through a few days of “fluffing” before their new, radiant skin shows through. This treatment can typically be repeated monthly.
