About Our Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new ones along with stimulating collagen and elastin. They can be used to treat various skin conditions including…
- Fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity
- Uneven pigmentation and melasma
- Acne and acne scars
- Sun damaged skin, age spots and freckling
We all have different needs and there are various chemical peels to meet your unique requirements. In our office, Licensed Medical Aesthetician Deborah Kahl will work with you to customize a treatment plan based on your individual needs and her years of experience working in the field.
There is nothing like the feel of fresh and young skin to bring out a more beautiful you. We recommend a skin consultation to determine which peel or combination of peels would compliment your skin. For best results, skin should be treated with appropriate skin care before and after peels.
Also known as the lunch time peel, Micropeel is a 3 step process that can be very effective in treating both sun damaged/photo-aged skin as well as pigmented and acneic. A micro-thin layer of skin is removed by an enzymatic solution, next a solution of AHA’s is applied with a finishing of cryotherapy. These peels have little to no downtime with an improvement of skin tone and texture with each subsequent treatment. For best results, we recommend a series of 6 treatments. Requires no downtime.

is a topical skin-bleaching agent used to help decrease pigmentation in the skin caused by pregnancy, hormone medications, injury to the skin or sun damage. Hydroquinone improves uneven pigmentation by decreasing the production of melanocytes (pigment forming cells) in the skin. By controlling the melanocytes your skin will become more even toned over time. Hydroquinone is not to be used long term. Typically, it is recommended to use no more than 3-4 months consistently then maintain with a non-hydroquinone skin care for 3-4 months.
When used together to help prep the skin for laser/chemical peels or just to improve overall skin tone/texture, retin-a and hydroquinone are an amazing combination. The hydroquinone will help stop the production of the pigmentation and the retin-a will help to exfoliate the dead skin cells/pigmentation away leaving more even skin underneath!
