Chemical Peels- Acne
Our Peel menu has changed. View our NEW Chemical Peel Menu
Acne Peel; Ideal for oily, acneic, and sun-damaged skin.
Our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.
PLEASE REVIEW THE CRITERIA BEFORE BOOKING YOUR ACNE PEEL.
Description: Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.
The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.
This 20% salicylic acid solution provides intense exfoliation for problematic or oily skin areas, even within oil-rich pores.
