We offer a variety of peels to address skincare concerns, including pore size, acne, melasma (dark spots), redness, wrinkles, and sun damage (hyperpigmentation). Our licensed esthetician will choose the peel that is right for you based on a thorough evaluation of your skin. For optimal results, a series of three to six peels is recommended. Rejuvenating Chemical Peel
A light to moderate peel to address pore size, redness, wrinkles and sun damage.
VI Peel® and VI Peel for Acne Prone Skin
This peel comes in two formulations: the VI Peel with anti-aging benefits and the specifically formulated VI Peel for Acne Prone Skin.
The VI Peel is a gentle, yet powerful medical grade chemical peel that contains a blend of TCA, Phenol, Retin A, Salicylic Acid, Vitamin C and a Proprietary Mineral Blend. This combination of ingredients is suited for all skin types. Improving tone, texture and clarity of the skin, this treatment reduces age spots, hyperpigmentation and pore size while softening fine lines and wrinkles.
If acne and acne scarring are a concern, then the VI Peel for Acne Prone Skin is a great choice. This peel has the added benefits of benzoyl peroxide and koji acid that target the bacteria P. acnes. Creating a healthier, firmer and more youthful appearance, the peel also brightens the skin and helps to stimulate collagen production.
The VI Peel and the VI Peel for Acne Prone Skin are self-neutralizing and provide dramatic results with virtually no pain, no preparation and minimal downtime. Patients are sent home with an after-care kit that contains everything needed to care for the skin after the treatment: post peel towelettes and skin protectant, and VI Derm® SPF 50+. Peeling typically begins three days after the treatment and will continue for three to four days. After the peeling has finished (usually seven days post peel), the healthy new skin will be revealed to show the final results.
Brighten your skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and resurface your skin’s texture with the Gloss Peel (best for Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-III). A blend of TCA (Azeloyl trichloroacetamide), Salicylic acid, and Retinol work together to help smooth skin texture, reduce pore size, fade hyperpigmentation and reverse sun damage.
The typical downtime for this treatment is two to three days, where patients may experience redness, peeling and dryness. A post-care kit is included with products to help sooth, hydrate and protect irritated skin. The majority of the peeling typically occurs between the third and fifth days post peel. Results will vary based on each individual’s skin- some patients may peel more than others. Your Medical Esthetician will advise you after your personalized skin care analysis to see if the Gloss Peel is right for you. (Call for pricing.)
Melanage® Mini Peel
A less intense version of the Melanage Peel (below) designed to treat mild to moderate pigmentation and melasma. Price includes two to four weeks of at home skincare. (Call for pricing.)
The Melanage Skin Brightening System is a new generation chemical peel that improves moderate to severe melasma and pigmentation concerns to reveal a brighter and enhanced skin complexion. Suited for all skin types, the peel combines a blend of Retinoids and Arbutin to help even out skin tone and remove layers of dead skin cells to help with an accurate and effective penetration of the melanin inhibitor ingredients. The treatment consists of an initial mask, which is applied in the office. Patients leave the office with the mask on their face, and are given instructions for an easy-to-follow at-home regimen, which includes several Melanage products to be applied once the mask is removed.
Results will vary, but typical downtime is five to seven days where you may experience significant redness, peeling, dryness, and swelling. The post-peel kit includes products to help cleanse, soothe, hydrate, protect and heal the skin. At no additional cost, the kit also contains a compounded Retinol and skin brighter to use nightly to enhance the results of the peel. Leave dull, discolored and uneven skin behind to reveal a new, brighter you. Call for a consultation to determine if the Melanage peel is right for you. (Call for pricing.)
