Chemical peels are an effective way of delivering chemical energy to the epidermis of the skin causing a stimulation of the deeper layers while effectively removing dead or damaged tissue that is more superficial. They are effective in treating fine lines around the face and mouth as well as other areas of the face. Chemical peels can be delivered in various modalities, including alpha hydroxy acid peels, glycolic acid peels, as well as more aggressive peels, such as a Jassner’s Peel.
The choice of the peel as well as its strength is determined after a clinical evaluation of the skin type to determine the degree of correction necessary to repair the damaged skin. In addition to the peels just mentioned, we offer a SkinCeuticals line of facial treatments, which are all administered by our licensed aesthetician.
