Chemical Peels

To help cleanse and revitalize your skin at the deepest levels, we provide medical-grade chemical peels. This innovative treatment can be customized to address a wide array of skin concerns. This procedure requires minimal downtime. 

Chemical Micro-peel is a process that enables us to penetrate the skin to allow good antioxidants to affect the dermis layer of the skin. This treatment causes the previously stagnant collagens to once again promote the cell turnover in the dermis, providing the appearance of younger looking, healthier and more skin.

Types of Chemical Peels
 
 – Mild Peel:
 A light or superficial peel that uses Alpha-hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate the skin and penetrates only the outer layer of the skin. This technique is used on less damaged skin with light pigmentation.
 
 – Moderate Peel:
 For penetration in the outer to middle layer of the skin, Beta hydroxyl acid peel is used to removes dead skin cells. It also helps improve age spots, pigmentation, acne, acne marks and discoloration.

How it Works

First, the skin is cleansed then a protective layer is added to shield the skin. The peel is applied to the skin and allowed to dry. Once dry, the peel is removed and a Ritnol serum is applied to complete the application.  During the procedure, patients typically feel a burning sensation that lasts between 5 – 10 minutes, followed by a stinging sensation.
