Medical Grade Chemical Peels:
use physician-grade chemical agents to resurface/peel the top layers of the skin. We offer a variety of medical grade peels, such as the PCA and Skin-Ceuticals to treat a number of skin conditions. Chemical peels can be done at different depths (ranging from superficial to deep) to achieve specific results, depending on the client’s individual needs. Light peels, which exfoliate only the outer layer of skin (epidermis), can help improve uneven pigmentation, fine lines, acne and dry skin. Medium-deep peels can target acne scars, wrinkles and smooth uneven skin texture by removing damaged skin cells from both the epidermis, as well as the upper layers of the dermis. Deep peels can achieve the most dramatic, long lasting results, but involves significantly more downtime. After a light peel, there may be some redness, irritation and dryness followed by scaling that ends in 3-7 days. For medium-deep peels, there will be more intense redness (like sunburn) and possible swelling. The skin may darken and form crust that peels off over a period of 7-14 days revealing new, brighter looking skin. After any peel, it is important to avoid any unnecessary sun exposure and always where sun protection.
