Chemical Peels

Facial peels for renewal and rejuvenation.

Chemical peels eliminate skin cells on the surface of the skin in order to activate skin renewal, enhance the look of the skin, and create an instant contrast in skin texture. The treatments are fast and convenient, taking only about twenty minutes – with no notable pain, no need for anesthesia, and very brief recovery time.

Chemical peel treatments are fairly inexpensive, and a number of varieties of peels are available at our office. The compounds used in these procedures result in an effective, predictable, safe peel, and each can be performed in a range of concentrations, depending on the condition we are treating. In conjunction with a home care regimen, these peels can decrease skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, and coloring irregularities.

For rejuvenation and relatively fine lines, we offer standard Glycolic Acid peels as well as mild implementations of TCA Peels (utilizing tricholoroacetic acid).

We also offer the Vitalize Peel, a new-generation formula incorporating alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol, and retinoic acid. The Vitalize Peel is particularly effective for acne scars and to correct sun-damaged, pigmented spots. Results of these peels are visible after only one treatment, and can be quite dramatic after several treatments. Here’s an example of what can be achieved:


Peels can be incorporated with other cosmetic treatments, such as Intense Pulsed Light or Microdermabrasion, to achieve maximum results.

If you’ve been considering a facial peel to rejuvenate your skin or to correct a skin condition, we’re available to discuss all the possibilities with you.
