Chemical Peels for Skin Rejuvenation

Chemical Peels for Skin Rejuvenation

Chemical peels are topically applied formulas that revitalize the skin surface by creating an even and controlled shedding of the skin cells. This allows new layers to be exposed, creating a fresh appearance and smoother texture to the skin surface. A chemical peel can improve sun damage, acne scarring, blotchy pigmentation and fine wrinkling. A peel can also improve acne-prone skin and clogged pores. Revitalize your complexion with one of our many peels including:

Do you have uneven skin tone, deep pigment issues or melasma?

The Melanage Skin Lightening Peel is a superficial peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of hyper-pigmented skin which involves a medicated masque and an at-home regimen. This peel is safe and effective for all skin types including dark skin. There is no pain and little-to-no irritation during the application of the mask, and typically, the irritation level on the following days is more like a sunburn.

Please note that our “chemical peels” are mainly considered “systems” because they contain the chemical peel portion which is applied in our office and also contains an at-home regimen of skin care products to maximize your results (this excludes TCA peels and Obagi Radiance Peel).

The Melanage™ Skin Brightening System is a deeper peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of brown spots. This peel is designed specifically for darker skin types who have uneven skin tone with deeper brown spots. It is a painless peel involving a mediated masque and an at home regimen for one month follow the peel. This treatment has one day of downtime when peel is applied to face, otherwise you can return to work the following day with an irritation level on the following days similar to a sunburn. This peel has yielded dramatic difference with only one application.

The Melanage™ Minipeel Skin Enhancement System is designed to improve skin texture, tone and sun damage, targeting mild brown spots and fine lines on the face. This is the less intensive version of the Melanage Skin Brightening System and must be used on lighter skin types without extensive hyperpigmentation/brown spots. It is designed to be administered 2-3 in office treatments for enhanced skin brightening and smoothing effects but you will see a difference with only one peel. This peel has very little downtime, is painless, and contains an at home regimen to amplify and extend the chemical peel’s benefits.

The Gloss™ Peel Skin Retexturing System can greatly improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin with a trio of restorative acids. This peel repairs the skin giving you luxurious radiant skin. This peel includes take home products to help maximize your treatment results. This peel can treat all skin types, has very little downtime after the peel and is painless.

The Actinage™ Skin Clarifying Peel System is a superficial yet powerful chemical peel designed to target patients of all skin types and with acne problems. It combines the powerful effects of Salicylic, Mandelic, and Azelaic acids in combination with Retinol for the treatment of oily and blemish-prone skin. This highly effective peel has a reduced risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which allows all skin types to be treated and can be performed in a series of 4-6 treatments every month for enhanced clarifying effects. This peel has antiaging benefits and well as treating the source of acne creating a healthy and pain free acne treatment. This comprehensive treatment also includes a complete home care system of products that amplify and extend the chemical peel’s benefits.

The Micronage Skin Refining System is a peel for all skin types, which gives enhanced exfoliation that uses gentle acids to restore your healthy complexion. This can be a stand-alone treatment or combination with microdermabrasion to maximize results; Micronage takes the skin rejuvenation process one step further by amplifying and extending the exfoliation process. The peel is complemented with a take-home product kit precisely tailored to maximize the results of the treatment. Optimal results are typically achieved in a series of two to four treatments.

The Obagi® Radiance Peel is primarily composed of salicylic acid, which is used to exfoliate the skin in treating scarring, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and sun-damaged skin. It exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed, and radiant. If you’re opting for the Obagi® Radiance Peel, you should expect to experience some redness after your treatment. Expect to use a moisturizer and sunscreen after your Obagi® Radiance Peel. You should expect to see slight redness/irritation/dryness within the first 12 hours, with facial exfoliation/peeling occurring after the first two to three days, which typically lasts up to 5 days.

TCA peels: Trichloroacetic acid has been used to perform chemical peels for over 20 years and is still used today as a mainstay in chemical peels. It causes the top layers of facial skin cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week. When the old skin is peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and more even color. TCA peels reduce brown spots, melasma, age spots, improve acneic skin, improve fine lines and improve the texture of leathery, sun damaged skin and impart more of a glow to your skin.
