Q: How do chemical peels work?
A: 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.

Q: How many treatments are needed?
A: The number of treatments needed depends on the severity of the condition we are treating. However, even if we are not treating any major skin concerns, it’s a good idea to incorporate a couple of peels annually to your anti-aging skin regimen by the age of 30.

Q: What type of acid is used?
A: The acids used in professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin. Most commonly used acids include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol).
Dependent on your skin type and condition, your skin care specialist will select an appropriate acid to use. Persons who have never had a peel before must begin with our Grape Enzyme Peel.

FACT: Did you know glycolic acid stimulates exfoliation? It treats flaky or dull skin and hyper pigmentation. The smaller a molecule, the more easily it gets into the skin and penetrates deeply. Because glycolic is the smallest of all the acids, it yields the most dramatic results.

Q: What results can I expect?
A: Typical results with most peels include
  • Increased vibrancy
  • Increased hydration
  • Increased product penetration and absorption
  • Clearance in skin tone
  • Smooth and improved texture
  • Clearance or reduction of active blemishes
