A chemical peel is a treatment that uses various acids sometimes blended together to exfoliate the skin. It is a quick pain free treatment leaving your skin smoother and brighter.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
Acids are applied to the skin and within minutes start to lift off dead skin cells causing a chain reaction. The top layer of the skin begins to shed which then signals the skin cells below the surface. This process multiples cells and increase collagen production.

Superficial or “Lunch time peel” - This peel only penetrates the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands. Flaking to mild peeling can be expected for approximately 2 days. This type of peel can be done every 3-4 weeks.
