Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be used for anti-aging, improvement of skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, pigment (sunspots and melasma), texture (acne scaring and large pores). Peels elevate skin health to the next level by enhancing and stimulating the skin’s natural biological process of EXFOLIATION.

We offer the ZO® Stimulation peel™ which initiates 3-5 days of peeling resulting in a refreshed and healthy visage.

We also offer a more intensive peel, the ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™. This can be customized to individual needs and skin conditions.

Penetration of this peel is predictable and fully controlled by the practitioner giving it an excellent safety record without sacrificing corrective results.

Peels can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, arms and legs.  

Chemical peels are solutions of glycolic, trichloroacetic, salicylic, lactic acid or phenols applied to the skin to create a controlled wound. The healing of this controlled wound is replacement with healthy, new skin. 

The type of chemical peel and concentration, and required number of treatments is determined by your skin type and correction you wish to achieve.  

Most people experience a mild burning sensation that lasts 2-5 minutes. Your skin will appear ‘sunburned’ for a few days and there may be slight swelling followed by peeling. 

The depth of the peel and health of the skin, patient compliance with post treatment instructions and maintenance will determine the reaction you have.  The best results from chemical peels are seen in patients that are on a medical grade skincare regimen.  

Chemical peels are a great way to “wake up” your skin and improve performance of products.  Book your complementary consultation to determine if a peel is right for you
