Chemical Peels

Designed to exfoliate and even out the texture of your skin, a chemical peel helps regenerate new tissue growth by inducing a controlled injury to the epidermis so that dead skin eventually sloughs off. This technique is known for reducing facial scarring, minimizing sun damage and pigmentation, and smoothing imperfections.

Below is a list of our most popular chemical peels. Each appointment starts with an evaluation of your skin and a treatment plan. Your aesthetician will have recommendations based on their evaluation on which chemical peel would work best for you!

My face is itchy, swelling and burning, what do I do?

  1. Itching can occur due to new skin cells forming. NO NOT SCRATCH! Scratching will irritate your skin more.  Pat the itching area instead. 
  2. Burning can happen due to having no barrier on your skin. It is common so sensitivity to occur at this time. 
  3. Applying more post peel balm will soothe itching and burning sensation. 

Swelling- Swelling can occur.  Cooling your skin with not cold compress will decrease swelling. If that does not help, take a Benadryl and contact the spa.

Is it normal for my pigmentation to turn darker?

Yes!  Deeper pigmentation can rise to the surface of skin causing current pigmentation to get darker. Fear not! The pigmentation will peel away leaving your skin pigmentation free!
