Here’s What You’re Getting

Chemical peels are non-invasive topical skincare treatments used for a variety of skincare concerns. Under physician supervision, we use medical-grade products for several skin concerns in many commonly affected areas.

Peeling Power

Chemical peels target various skin depths and deeply clean and exfoliate the skin for a brighter, refreshed appearance. Our Bay Area chemical peels may effectively address concerns like:

  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Scarring
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Enlarged pores
  • Oil build-up
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage

Most Effective Areas

These topical treatments can improve areas of skin including:

  • Face
  • Eyelids
  • Neck
  • Upper chest
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Back

What can I expect from the procedure?

A chemical peel typically takes around one hour to perform unless you’re undergoing additional cosmetic procedures at the same time. To begin, you’ll lie face up on the treatment table while your customized peel is applied to the skin (light, medium, deep). You may feel a tingling or mild burning sensation akin to a sunburn as the chemicals take effect and begin exfoliating the outermost damaged layer. Your practitioner will stay by your side the entire time to ensure you do not have any adverse reactions and that you are comfortable and relaxed.

You’ve Got Options

It’s important to remember results vary each person and peel according to the option your skincare specialist deems best suited for you. Each peel treatment is painless and most people enjoy results shortly after treatment. We proudly offer a variety of medical-grade facials, including:

Age-Defying Peel

60 min

Your skincare professional will help choose from the following: Pigment Balancing, Micropeel 20 or 30, or Gel Peel. Following a skin analysis by your esthetician, three masks are chosen to target zones with specific needs. An antioxidant-packed serum is gently applied to your face and neck. The Triple Lipid Repair provides excellent hydration and is paired with an equally hydrating eye complex for glowing skin. Protection is provided by our Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50.

Brightening Peel

60 min

This peel treatment begins with an effective cleanse/gentle exfoliant. From there, your esthetician will select either a pigment balancing or alpha-beta peel, depending on your skin type and condition. Next, a Vitamin C firming and hydrating mask is applied. The peel finishes with the Advanced Pigment Corrector, which holds a powerful serum that corrects discoloration and prevents reappearance. Protection is provided with an application of Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50.

Acne Clearing Peel

60 min

With an acne-reducing combination of salicylic and glycolic acid, this peel prevents problematic breakouts and helps correct environmental skin damage. A replenishing Biocellulose Restorative mask creates a protective barrier that facilitates the recovery process while cooling the skin for optimal comfort. Protection is provided with an application of Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50.
