Chemical Peels are more intense treatments for those who want to target issues such as: hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scarring, texture, dullness, age spots, sun spots, aging, fine lines, and melasma. Most peels are suggested as a series of 3-6 individual treatments, spaced 1-4 weeks apart.
The 10% TCA Depigmentation Peel (Trchloroacetic acid) is mild but very effective and delivers lighteners down to the melanocyte without traumatizing the skin. The TCA Peel is buffered with azelaic, arbutin and kojic acids, which are tyrosinase inhibitors that control hyperpigmentation, melasma, or sun damage for all Fitzpatricks 1 – 6. The combination of these acids is a beautiful peeling treatment for evening skin tone, reducing acne, and retexturing the skin. $220 (8 weeks)
The 20% Lactic Lightening Peel contains lactic acid, a milk-based ingredient that is great for hydrating and exfoliating the skin in a gentle manner. The peel also includes two superb lighteners. $55 (series of 3/$149 6/$299)
The 30% Glycolic Peel is an excellent cell renewal peel and is a great classic on its own. The glycolic acid dissolves the desmosomes that hold skin together to allow for an efficient exfoliation. $55 (series of 3/$149 6/$299)
