Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures that use chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin.
They are primarily used on the face, however they can also be used on the neck and hands.
Chemical peels are composed of different types of acidic compounds that are brushed onto the skin and left in place for a designated amount of time. Some peels only require a matter of minutes, while others require hours. The acids used in chemical peels will cause the skin to eventually blister and peel, much like a moderate sunburn.
Did You Know?
The Perfect Derma™ Peel and Glytone Peels are considered to be medium chemical peels. A medium chemical peel removes skin from both the outer layer (epidermis) and the upper part of the middle layer of skin (dermis). These are the same layers of skin that can become damaged by a severe sunburn.
Restore Your Skin's Glow
As the largest and outermost organ, our skin gets exposed to a lot on a daily basis. As a result, skin on the face, hands, and neck can start to look dull and/or be littered with various imperfections. By removing skin cells from the epidermis, and sometimes the dermis as well, chemical peels help to remove old skin cells in order to allow new skin to become visible.
How Your Skin Can Change
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Remove signs of aging like crown’s feet, age spots, and wrinkles
- Repair sun-damaged skin
- Correct hyperpigmentation & melasma
- Improve the appearance of scars
Perfect Derma™ Peel
A medical-grade peel that contains trichloroacetic acid (TCA), retinoic acid (vitamin A), salicylic & kojic acids, phenol, and vitamin C. It is also the only chemical peel that contains an antioxidant known as glutathione, which is used to increase cellular turnover and decrease signs of aging. The Perfect Derma™ Peel decreases the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.
Glytone Acid Peels
Glytone peels use glycolic acid, which is an exfoliant that removes old skin cells from the outermost layer. Unlike other glycolic acid peels, however, Glytone uses Precision Free Acid Values (PFAV™) as the amount of acid that comes in contact with the skin. This allows your provider to apply the product in a safer and more effective way that minimizes skin irritation while yielding dramatic results.

Chemical peels are a non-invasive method to help you rejuvenate skin on the face, neck, and hands. By removing the outermost layer of skin, chemical peels allow new skin to surface. The result is clear, healthy skin that is free from imperfections.
