We perform medical grade chemical peels using compound acids available only to physician directed medical centers.
Lactic Acid (30 to 45%)
Increases elasticity of skin and improves fine lines and wrinkles. Treated skin will feel more full and plump. Lactic Acid Peels are milder than traditional chemical peels. They are derived from milk. These peels are ideal for sensitive skin, or darker skin tones, and are effective in treating sun damage, acne scars, acne, lines and wrinkles, and overall skin tone and texture. It is also good for those with rosacea.
Glycolic Acid (30% to 45%)
Increases elasticity of skin and improves fine lines and wrinkles. May lighten hyper-pigmented areas.
Salicylic Acid (20 to 30%)
Dries active acne and superficial blemishes, improves hyper-pigmented areas and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic Acid Peels are great cleansing peels designed to unclog pores, eliminating acne blemishes. In addition, this peel is excellent for reducing fine lines and wrinkles and enhancing overall skin tone.
Lacti-Bright (Lactic acid, hydroquinone)
Improvement in hyper-pigmented areas, fine lines and skin may have a brighter, smoother appearance. Lite Jessner’s Peel (Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Resorcinol) Drying of active acne and superficial blemishes, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultra Jessner’s Peel(Same as Lite Jessners plus Hydroquinone)
Improvment of hyper-pigmented areas, fine lines and wrinkles. Dries active acne and superficial blemishes.
Jessner’s Peel (14% Resorcinol 14% Salicylic 14% Lactic acid)
The higher strength of these components results in a much deeper exfoliation process (average about 3 to 4 days after the peel you will have noticeable flaking). The result is great skin rejuvenation and improvements in mild to severe acne, discoloration, wrinkling and sun damage. Jessner Peels are exceptional for treating cystic acne or severe skin damage caused by sun exposure. We often combines a medical microdermabrasion before we do our chemical peels – this allows the peel to work at deeper levels of the skin and results in much greater effects!
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Peels take away dead skin cells and compel the generation of new skin, thus improving fine lines & wrinkles, sun spots, mild scarring, and acne.
How long does the procedure take?
Generally a typical treatment will take 15 minutes, depending on what chemical peel is used.
Is it painful?
Upon application, patients feel a slight stinging which subsides after a few minutes.
What results can I expect?
Facial peels remove the outer “dead” layers of the skin or epidermis. You will gradually notice reduced fine lines and smoothness of the skin.
Are there any risks with chemical peels?
Complications from superficial peeling agents are rare. The most common side effects may include persistent erythema, irritation and increased sensitivity.
How many treatments are required?
Depending on the desired result, each chemical peel treats different areas. Generally, 4-6 treatments with any chemical peel, once a month will give a desired result.
Can I combine a peel with a microdermabrasion?
This is by far the most effective way to improve your skin’s appearance. The micropeel will further break down the cell walls to further penetrate nutrients and moisturizers into the skin.
