Removing imperfections to reveal a softer, smoother complexion

This treatment is an excellent solution for blemishes, sun damage, acne scarring, lines and wrinkles, and many other common aesthetic concerns. It can also jumpstart the body’s production of collagen and elastin. Peels range from mild to deep, and each can be formulated to match your unique goals, lifestyle, and comfort level.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

Light Peel

A light or superficial peel requires little downtime and is, therefore, appropriate for those on-the-go patients with busy, active lifestyles. This choice is ideal for treating acne scarring, poor skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, sun damage, and discoloration. Light peels use alpha-hydroxy acids such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, malic, or a combination of these. While light peels are typically considered gentle and non-invasive, minor redness and tenderness after treatment are common side effects. Healing occurs within one week, and most patients can expect to wear makeup within about 3 days. 

Medium Peel

Made with glycolic, lactic, salicylic, or trichloroacetic acid (TCA,) medium peels can help reduce age spots, discoloration, acne scarring, and lines and wrinkles. These types of peels target the deeper layers of skin to produce a more dramatic improvement in skin tone and texture. Recovery typically takes 1-2 weeks.

Deep Peel

This type of peel has the most downtime (usually up to 3 weeks) but produces the most dramatic improvements, penetrating to the skin’s deepest layers. Formulated with glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, and phenol, deep peels can combat moderate to severe wrinkles, lines and folds, sun damage, acne scarring, blotchy skin, and even precancerous growths.
