Dramatic, visible results

Chemical face peels

Chemical face peels can deliver dramatic, visible results and are ideal if you are looking to diminish the signs of aging, improve moderate to severe discoloration, and improve dull, sallow-appearing skin. The neck and chest are also optional areas of treatment for chemical peels.

If the surface layers of your skin are damaged, wrinkled or discolored, or if you have skin growths or acne scars, a chemical face peel performed by our experienced aesthetician may be the right choice for you.

Our face peels are applied in layers, and are designed to correct, exfoliate, restore and protect your skin. There is no anesthesia required, and the entire procedure only takes 25 – 45 minutes.

We have numerous chemical face peel options, and are happy to discuss each with you and help you select the right one to meet your goals:

  • Jessner’s and TCA Chemical Peels. As a combination, these peels offer a medium-depth chemical peel. The Jessner’s Peel has been used for over 100 years and combines resorcinol (a derivative of phenol), lactic acid and salicylic acid, resulting in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. These peels are very effective in the treatment of mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling and sun damage. The Jessner’s Peel is particularly beneficial for patients with acne, oily prone skin, clogged pores, or thicker skin. Recovery involves flaking and exfoliation for three to four days after the peel, and smoother, healthier skin within a week.

  • Modified and Enhanced Jessner’s Peels. We have three varieties of these gentle and innovatively blended formulations. They effectively soften surface texture while brightening skin and inhibiting discoloration. They are intended for more oily skin and improve acne as well.

    • PCA Peel, hydroquinone-free. This formula is ideal for sensitive and ethnic skin types. It will help unclog pores, improve acne and rejuvenate the skin.  

    • PCA Peel, with hydroquinone. This formula will help lighten dark spots (from sun damage, aging, melasma, etc.), inhibit acne, and leave the skin firmer and smoother.

    • PCA Peel, with hydroquinone and resorcinol. The most active of the three PCA Peel formulas, this peel will even skin tone and provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and more resilient skin types. It is effective for improving active acne, highly sun-damaged and thickened skin.

  • Blended TCA Peels. These skin-friendly, yet effective, peels address many skin conditions without the discomfort and downtime associated with the traditional TCA peels. Our blended TCA peels are exceptional for the treatment of acne, skin discoloration, and fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving the skin plump and hydrated. These face peels are very good for drier skin and contain a range of options from very gentle for sensitive or darker skin types, to more active formulations for resilient skin and skin on the body.

  • Sensi Peel. This gentle formulation will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other hyperpigmentation (dark spots). This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for extremely sensitive skin. It is also very helpful for calming rosacea.

  • Ultra Peel I. This treatment is specially formulated to gently treat dehydrated, menopausal and mature skin. It will help treat pigment disorders, fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin and acne. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and ultra-soft skin.  

  • 6% Pure Retinol Peel. This powerful peel, formulated for normal to resilient skin, lifts and reduces discoloration, while smoothing, strengthening and brightening the skin.
