Peel away the imperfections. If your skin has been damaged by the sun or acne, or if you would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines or uneven pigmentation, you may benefit from a Chemical Peel.
Lighter peels sometimes referred to as Resurfacers only treat the epidermis of the skin and are a safe and effective way to visibly improve the quality, texture and tone of your skin without the discomfort and recovery time often associated with deeper chemical peels. Light peels gently accelerate the skin cell regeneration process by replacing old, dull skin cells with softer, smoother, younger-looking skin.
Deeper peels such as the TCA or the Jessner penetrate the dermis and provide mild resurfacing. When combined with a home care regimen and repeated every 2 to 4 weeks over a period of 2 to 3 months, peels can help improve sun damage, lighten age spots and diminish the appearance of acne scarring. Fine lines are reduced, and your skin’s overall health and appearance is dramatically improved over time with regular use.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
Discontinue the use of Retinols and avoid getting active sun on your face one week prior to your peel appointment.

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of exfoliation that uses a powerful diamond tip wand across the skin’s surface. This procedure removes the outermost layer of skin cells (part of the stratum corneum) and stimulates cell growth in the underlying dermis. Microdermabrasion helps give a smoother, fresher appearance to the skin. It is also used to diminish the appearance of sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse-textured skin. We frequently combine a microderm with a light chemical peel, getting the best of both forms of exfoliation, manual and chemical. We also lfind it beneficial to micro a week after an IPL to exfoliate the lifted hyperpigmentation!
