Skin Peels

Chemical Peels

Skin will be left glowing and youthful with our gentle line of chemical peels. Our chemical peels work with AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) such as lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and mandelic acids. This treatment involves the application of a mild solution to the skin that promotes exfoliation of dead skin cells which reveals the healthier skin below. The result is a smoother texture, softer skin and more even skin tone.    The benefits of this treatment include:  

• Reduction and smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles 
• Tightening of the skin
• Improved skin tone, color and clarity
• Lightens darker pigmented areas
• Lessens the appearance of scars
• Improves acne
