Peels take away dead skin cells and promote the generation of new skin, thus improving fine lines & wrinkles, sun spots, mild scarring, and acne.
A typical treatment will take 15 minutes, depending on what chemical peel is used.
Upon application, patients feel a slight tingling sensation, which subsides after a few minutes.
Facial peels remove the outer “dead” layers of the skin or epidermis. You will gradually notice reduced fine lines and smoothness of the skin.

This is by far the most effective way to improve your skin’s overall appearance. The micro-peel will further break down the cell walls to penetrate nutrients and moisturizers into the skin. Microdermabrasion uses gentle exfoliation to compliment the action of the facial peel. We recommend the sequence of a peel, followed by Microdermabrasion a week later, for a total of four two-week cycles.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that minimizes fine lines, reduces acne scaring, evens out skin tone while smoothing the surface of the skin, leaving a vibrant glow. The results are comparable to a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing treatment. However, a series of sessions are less abrasive, no anesthetic is needed and results in no down time.
