What Does a Chemical Peel Do?

Chemical peels produce brighter, younger-looking skin by removing dull outer layers of skin and promoting cell turnover. Chemical peels vary in strength from very mild to intense, and with so many options to choose from, we have one that’s perfect for you.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution that removes the outer layers of dead, dull skin cells. The depth of the peel, meaning the number of skin cell layers removed, depends on the strength of the peel, how it is applied, and how long it remains on the skin. Chemical peels can range from those mild enough to buy over-the-counter to those strong enough that they should only be administered in a professional setting. 

What Chemical Peels Are Available?

We offer many different types of peels and facials to help people find the right one for them. However, these represent some of our popular and effective chemical peels that have produced many excellent results. 


This peel, with its oil-based delivery system, starts in our office and then continues at home over the course of a week, exfoliating the skin to bring healthy, vibrant new skin cells to the surface, sloughing away dull skin to leave smaller pores, fewer lines and wrinkles, and diminished age and sun damage. Safe for all skin types, with a week of peeling post treatment, expect to see dramatic results in just two peels, one month apart.

BioRevitalization Peel

This breakthrough biostimulant peel is a “peel” that’s not a peel. It ramps up collagen to address uneven skin tone, dullness, loose skin, lines and wrinkles, and other signs of aging, without the trauma, sensitivity, and harshness of other peels, as it literally builds your skin from the inside out.  The benefits of this treatment is that you don’t have to undergo any uncomfortable peeling or the typical downtimes that traditional chemical peels often involve. A must for those on-the-go, all skin types needing rejuvenation, sensitive skin, and those who want a huge glow!

Vi Peel

This pain-free peel applies seven or more layers of peeling agents and other treatments to the face, rejuvenating the skin and reverse signs of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, aging, large pores, acne, and acne scarring. Appropriate for all skin types, with about 3-4 days of peeling.

Enlighten® Peel

This peel helps stop your skin from making excess pigment, removing hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and melasma while exfoliating away dull skin and signs of aging. This treatment’s brightening powers make it popular for the removal of problem pigmentation, and darker ethnicities. Expect to do two treatments, about one month apart.

We offer many other peels and facials, so please contact us to find out which one will work best for you and which ones we recommend. 

Is There Any Downtime With Chemical Peels?

Recovery time depends on the peel used on your skin. For a light peel, you may see some discoloration and mild skin peeling for four to seven days. For a medium to deeper peel, you may see significant redness, flaking and peeling for five to seven days. We will advise you on the best way to care for your skin post-peel to minimize downtime and speed up healing. 

What Results Will I See From a Chemical Peel?

After the initial stages of healing from your chemical peel, you should see luminous, bright, youthful-looking skin. Dark spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne scarring, dull skin, lines and wrinkles, and even loose skin will look dramatically improved, with dull outer layers of skin removed and new, brighter skin brought to the surface.
