Chemical Peels


A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun damage, prior ACNE scars, or just getting older can cause uneven skin tone and texture. Chemical peels are procedures done by our aestheticians, where a chemical solution is applied to the skin to cause the damaged outer layers of the skin to gradually slough off. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.

Chemical peels may help the following skin conditions:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and live spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin

Micropeel Plus Dermaplaning

The SkinCeuticals Micropeel is a three-step clinical procedure combining dermaplaning (physical exfoliation), chemical exfoliation, and cryogenic therapy to reduce signs of photoaging including fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and visible skin imperfections in a series of 4-6 procedures.

The Micropeel Plus procedure is a unique one-step treatment of chemical exfoliation designed to reduce ACNE, keep problematic skin clear of breakouts, and help correct enviormental skin damage. Micropeel Plus 30 Solution is formulated with a combination of salicylic acid to refine pores and help reduce the appearance of ACNEand glycolic acid to aid in the improvement of rough texture, blotchiness, and uneven skin tone. One week following a Micropeel Plus procedure, skin will undergo its renewal process and light to moderate peeling may occur.

Combined, salicylic and mandelic acid work synergistically to exfoliate the skin while decongesting pores and reducing irritation. This is an ideal treatment for ACNE prone skin. This light chemical peel revitalizes sensitive skin and helps improve the appearance of problematic skin.

Combined, glycolic and lactic acid work synergistically to exfoliate the skin while reducing irritation and dryness. By accelerating the cell renewal process, stimulating collagen synthesis, and improving elastin fibers in the dermis, this light chemical peel revitalizes photodamaged skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Trichloracetic acid (TCA) peels are considered medium-depth peels. They reach slightly deeper into the skin than alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peels–and thus often produce stronger results. TCA is a skin-resurfacing treatment: it removes dead skin cells, uncovering a “new” layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. As a result, it softens fine lines, minimizes superficial “age” spots and other skin discolorations, and generally improves the tone and texture of your skin. TCA peels are also very popular for diminishing the appearance of ACNE scars.

The DermaPen

SkinPen_illust_72dpi1SkinPen is a medical grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device designed to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation as well as enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. SkinPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.

Before-After-Acne-Scars-Perfect-Complexion-300x240The variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) of SkinPen and the cordless design provide significant versatility to create change in many areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin and results in little to no downtime for the patient.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) with Blue Light

This treatment is FDA approved for the treatment of actinic keratoses– precancerous lesions on the skin from sun damage that can develop into SKIN CANCER if left untreated. It involves the application of Levulan (aminolevulinic acid 20%) to affected skin and allowing it to incubate for 45 minutes to an hour. The solution is absorbed by the precancerous cells, where it is converted to a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. The skin is then exposed to the BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator, and a reaction occurs which destroys the precancerous cells without damaging normal skin. This is a great treatment option for individuals with significant sun damage. It is a simple, quick, in office procedure. It causes a SUNBURN-like reaction on the skin that resolves within one week. It is very effective in treating the precancerous lesions, but patients also enjoy the cosmetic response, as the majority of patients treated report a significant improvement in the look and feel of their skin. Patients treated with Levulan should avoid exposure to sun for 48 hours post procedure. View Website

This is a young male patient who shaves his head. He started balding in his 20s and prefers shaved head to receding hairline. He was very self-conscious about a prominent dent on the crown of his scalp. In-person, it is a lot more noticeable. It’s not as obvious in the pictures. He asked if we could improve this through fillers. One syringe of Voluma was used to fill in the deficit. It corrected nicely.⁠ ... See MoreSee Less
