All of our peels we require you to prep your skin 4-6 weeks pre-peel.  This only helps your skin to accept the peel better and preps your skin for the best results possible.  

 

There are 3 types of peels: superficial, medium and deep.

 

  • Superficial/Light Peels - are the gentlest type of peels available. They only remove the top layer of the skin (the epidermis), and can give your skin an instantly brighter, smoother and more even texture. They are great to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, mild sun damage, minor acne scarring, pigmentation and/or dry flaking skin. They are an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid, also known as AHAs and BHAs and include glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid. It is also common to use fruit enzymes and acids from natural sources such as pumpkins, vitamin C and pineapples. The number of treatments vary from  client-to-client depending on condition being treated. Superficial peels don't hurt, you may feel a slight tingling, stinging or itchy sensation and have no downtime. You can be a slightly pink afterwards and may get some mild flaking of the skin. With a this type of peel you can return back to work or go out afterwards and no one would know you have had anything done.

 

  • Medium depth peels - give more dramatic results than superficial peels. Usually a TCA (trichloroacetic acid) or Jessner Peel, they penetrate deeper in to the skin and can be used to treat sun damage, pigmentation and wrinkles. A medium peel can be used to treat any part of the body, not just the face.  Unlike the superficial peel, you will feel more activity, stinging and burning.  With a medium peel you will have a longer recovery period than that of a superficial peel. Your skin will start to feel very tight and start to shed in about 3-4 days post peel.  Within 7-10 days your skin will look much healthier and have a beautiful glow.  With ANY peel or facial you MUST wear suncreen to prevent skin damage, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and sunburn. 

 

  • Deep peels - these peels have a much longer recovery time and require a doctor or nurse to adminster them.
