Improve Skin Texture and Radiance
Chemical peels are an easy, non-invasive way to immediately resurface and improve the appearance of your skin with little to no downtime. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to slough off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Peels can help with fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scaring, age spots and hyperpigmentation. Your skin care specialist will customize your peel from mild to strong depending on your skin’s needs. Although chemical peels are mostly used on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin of your chest, neck and hands.
Obagi Blue Peel Radiance
The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance can effectively tighten, smooth, and brighten your skin! This gentle peel has little to no downtime. It is mostly made up of salicylic acid with a small combination of glycolic and lactic acid. The great thing about this peel is that it is good for all skin types and can be lighter or stronger depending on the number of layers applied. It is great for acne prone skin and as an anti-aging treatment. Though you will see and feel the difference in just one peel, a series of four to six treatments are recommended.
The VI Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. It will improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin; reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma; soften lines and wrinkles; clear acne skin conditions; reduce or eliminate acne scars; and stimulate the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin. You will see a big difference with one peel, but a series of 3 peels are recommended.
VI Peel with Precision
Made from the same synergistic blend of ingredients as the VI Peel but at a higher concentration. the VI Precision Peel is about 25% stronger than a VI Peel. The VI Precision Peel is an excellent procedure for treating stubborn hyper pigmentation including melasma, actinic keratosis, and age spots on the hands, arms, or chest.
VI Peel with Precision Plus:
Retinoic acid triggers skin peeling and unclogs the pores while boosting collagen and elastin production. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, mitigates the damaging effects of UV exposure and removes toxins. Hydroquinone lightens dark spots and inhibits pigmentation and melasma while exfoliating to create a glowing and even skin tone. Kojic acid aids in fighting discoloration and brightens the complexion. Hydrocortisone soothes the skin and reduces redness and irritation.
VI Purify Peel:
The most effective acne treatment available today! Benzoyl peroxide removes bacteria, clears the pores, and increases skin cell turnover. Salicylic acid causes the cells of the epidermis to shed, opening clogged pores and neutralizing the bacteria within while shrinking pore size to prevent further clogging. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from sun damage and environmental toxins. Kojic acid brightens the skin and reduces the appearance of acne scars.
Trichloroacetc Acid, often referred to as TCA is a medium depth peel many times used for those with mature skin problems, such as sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. It is used to exfoliate and renew the skin on a superficial to deep level. TCA is commonly applied to the face, neck, décolleté, and hands. TCA will improve skin tone, texture and clarity, in addition to increasing collagen and elastin production. This is a strong peel and does require 5-7 days of downtime.
The Jessner Peel is generally considered a medium level peel containing 14% of each acid (Salicylic, Lactic, and Resorcinol.) The depth of this peel is determined by the number of layers applied during application and the tolerance level of the skin it is applied to. The distinct blend of acids work in synergy to combat hyperpigmentation, sun damage and rough texture to reveal vibrant glowing skin. This is also a great peel for acne.
Glycolic 30% and 50%
Glycolic acid is the most commonly used alpha hydroxy acid with no downtime. It is good for any skin type. Glycolic acid is an exfoliator, which means that it safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, bringing fresh, new skin to the surface. It can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skin’s tone and texture. Glycolic acid plumps the skin and helps boost hydration levels. It is good for anyone looking to reveal younger looking skin, but it is much more than anti-aging product. Glycolic acid can also help lighten discoloration of the skin, such as sun spots or age spots, and can even help those with acne-prone skin.
Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) antispeptic exfoliant that deeply cleanses pores. It has the capacity for deep pore penetration, and is an excellent choice for those prone to mild and moderate acne and overall skin rejuvenation.
