Chemical Peels

Everyone’s skin has its own genetic make-up and, therefore, one should not necessarily expect to get the same peel as the one a friend has been raving about.

 A well-trained esthetician should recommend the best one for you, taking into consideration your ethnic background, skin type and color, and also lifestyle.

Prices vary from $90 – $150

(A chemical peel is sometimes included with a facial at a discounted price.)
Treatment Areas: Face ~  Neck ~ Arms  ~ Chest ~ Hands ~ Back ~ Legs ~ Feet

Facial chemical peels usually include extractions.

Low-dose approach: More is not necessarily better. This is especially true when it comes to treating the skin. Inflammation is the underlying cause of many skin conditions and overly aggressive treatments and products may worsen, and not correct the situation, possibly ending up with post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, acne breakouts, and other complications. If the goal is healthy, beautiful skin, then a low-dose approach is often (not always) the best choice.  Numerous peels are available to address various concerns like skin dehydration or oiliness, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, hyper-pigmentation, melasma, and rosacea.  The best peel for your skin type will be applied, with your approval.

 

Pre-Peel Protocol
  • Must stop using any product that has Retin-a, Tretinoin or Retinol for five days to one week before a chemical peel
  • Do not wax or use a depilatory on the face for one week before or after having a chemical peel
  • Wear sunscreen every day (You cannot have a peel with a sunburn.)
  • Drink at least 6 glasses of water every day
 
Rosacea/Sensitive Skin Peel “Treatment”

This special treatment is amazingly effective for those with rosacea by visibly reducing redness, leaving the skin smooth and healthy looking.  Soothing products are applied over the chemical peel, synergistically working together to calm the skin.  Extractions are included.  This is a great treatment to schedule a few days before a special event! 
Note: You must stay in air-conditioning after the treatment.  No exercising or sweating for the rest of the day.  The treatment is left on overnight and face cleansed the following morning.  $135

 
Keratosis Pilaris Peel Treatment

Do you have annoying little bumps on your upper arms or thighs? Chances are you have keratosis pilaris, a common (benign) skin condition in which a protein in the skin called keratin forms hard plugs within hair follicles. The texture can be that of sandpaper. It is more common in those who have very dry skin, or who have atopic dermatitis  or eczema. It seems to run in families. This condition is treated with a special leave-on peel. Depending on severity, more than one treatment may be necessary to obtain optimum results. Most clients will see a noticeable improvement with just one treatment.
