Chemical peels are advanced clinical skin treatments that aid in reversing damaged skin due to factors such as aging, sun exposure, and acne. By sloughing off the dead skin cells with a chemical peel, a new, fresh, healthy glowing layer of skin is exposed making the skin appear younger and tighter. Our Licensed Aestheticians will select a peel that is right for your individual needs.

for severe hyperpigmentation & acne scarring
TCA or Trichloroacetic acid is a stronger and deeper peel for patients who want to repair skin damage from sun exposure through skin peeling. Some of this skin damage can also be driven by hormones resulting in a condition called Melasma. These peels can remove lesions or scarring from years ago. TCA peels can lighten or remove freckles and age spots on the face. Since TCA is a stronger acid, these peels are sometimes used on the body to help with sun damage on the arms, legs, and decolletage. This peel causes sun damage to rise to the surface of the skin and then peel or flake off.
