What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a noninvasive, FDA-approved procedure that uses a custom combination of active ingredients to exfoliate and remove old, damaged layers of skin, allowing new, healthy skin to emerge. Our medical-grade chemical peels are proven to safely and effectively improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your skin and reduce the appearance of pigmentation, acne and acne scars, melasma, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, and unwanted freckles.

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peel treatments use a combination of active ingredients—such as alpha hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol)—to chemically exfoliate the outer layers of skin and reveal smooth, new skin. Each peel is customized, allowing you to achieve the results you desire. Not all chemical peels will leave you with visible peeling and flaking, some peels will work at a cellular level, promoting new healthy cell growth. Each chemical peel treatment session takes 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
