Chemical Treatments and Peels

Nice Complexion
Chemical peels help to exfoliate the dead skin cells both on the surface of the skin as well as within the cell layers. Our physicians offer a variety of peels to improve concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea, sun damage, texture, and aging. Chemical peels are a great add-on to most facials. 

Light to Medium Peels

We offer a variety of PCA and SkinCeutical peels consisting of glycolic, salicylic, hydroquinone, TCA and lactic acids.

Medium to Deep Peels

A combination of TCA, phenol, salicylic, retinol and vitamin C help to improve the overall appearance of the skin. These peels work to eliminate hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, acne scars and melasma. They can also stimulate collagen reproduction and soften fine lines and wrinkles. For all skin types and ethnicities.

SkinCeuticals Pigment Balancing Peel

This peel combines brightening and anti-inflammatory agents to accelerate cell turnover and help eliminate hyperpigmentation. Applied to the skin in mask form, this peel helps to improve photo-damaged, uneven, aging skin.

Medical Microdermabrasion

This aggressive, two-step treatment is ideal for thick, pigmented, and sun-damaged skin. First, the skin is treated using microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells. Then, we apply a customized chemical peel, further stimulating the exfoliation process. Adding a hydrating mask or Oxy-Mist treatment is recommended to provide continued hydration.

*Microdermabrasion is also available as an individual treatment
