September Special: Peels
September 2018 Special: 25% OFF all Chemical PeelsTo kick off the season, our monthly special is 25% OFF all chemical peels.
All of 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.
This special is not valid with any other offer/promotion. No pre-purchasing; Ends Sep. 30, 2018.
How do Chemical Peels work?Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, they 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.
