What is a skin peel?
A skin peel, also known as a chemical peel, is a science base treatment that when properly adminstered, offers one of the most powerful non-surgical skin improvements available. It involves the application of highly specialized acid and enzyme solutions to remove the damaged layers of cells from the skin's outer surface--revealing more glowing youthful skin.
Peels remove cellular buildup and stimulate skin regeneration, revealing visible improvements. This includes reduced wrinkles and fine lines, pore size, oil production, and the apperance of blemishes, as well as improved skin tone and hydration for a more vibrant appereance. Skin peels may be especially beneficial in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and photo aging.
What to expect?
Due to the high level of skin exfoliation associated with skin peels, clients may experience some discomfort following treatment. While a majority of clients describe any discomfort as very manageable, experience may vary depending on the type of skin peel administered and an individual's pain tolerance. Most clients agree that any discomfort is offset by the dramatic improvements attained in skin appearance.

Post care treatment will include occlusive healing balms, epidermal growth factor for cell renewal and wound repair, calming topicals to reduce itching and inflammation, also sunscreen.
