ABOUT CHEMICAL PEELS
Chemical Peels utilize gentle acids to refine the skin and remove dead cells. The exfoliating power of chemical peels helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and reveals a much brighter complexion in those who have been treated. People who suffer from acne scars and dullness can see wonderful results from a peel. Peels also address acne, age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation (including melasma).
If you’re familiar with chemical peels, you may have heard that downtimes are long, or that you need to take a week off from work following a peel. That’s true for some peels, but we have peels for those who can’t take that much time. Our aestheticians will create the ideal blend of acids for your skin’s needs and get you looking radiant—on your timeline. Our “Perfect Peel” is a blend of acids that we apply for 20-45 minutes. In most cases, you can return to the rest of your day’s activities immediately (as long as you have proper sun protection). The Perfect Peel typically doesn’t start peeling until the 3rd day, and peeling will finish within 6-7 days post-treatment.
We offer an array of lighter peels, as well. Ask our aesthetician what will be best for your desired results!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS*
Most people find chemical peels painless. Those with sensitive skin might experience burning or stinging and redness during or after treatment. We have a variety of soothing measures we can take to make the process as comfortable as possible.
How long do you have? We have a range of chemical peel options that we can formulate just for you. Some are light and are doable on the lunch hour, and some are more extensive.
This varies by peel. We advise diligent sun protection post-treatment for anyone who’s received a peel, regardless of strength. Some peels might take around a week to fully recover from, but others give next-day radiant results.
This also varies by peel. For more intensive treatments, the space between them will be longer. Your aesthetician can create a regimen for you that will keep your skin bright and beautiful over time.
We can combine dermaplaning with a peel to enhance exfoliation, and we can also couple a peel with a soothing facial. We typically advise a few weeks of separation between an injectable treatment and an intensive chemical peel, just to ensure that any swelling or bruising from injectable treatments has resolved.
