Alpha Hydroxy / Enzyme Peels: $85

Serious about change?  These treatments will get the most done.  Which type of peel is right for you will depend on your skin type.  These peels make your skin function as it normally does by removing dead skin cells and creating new cells but at an accelerated rate. Resulting in fresher, brighter skin with a healthy glow.

TCA Peel /Modified Jessner Peel: $125

A Jessner peel, according to the book “Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery for Darker Skin Types,” is a superficial peel that is used to treat photoaging, age spots, acne, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma and freckles.

Traditional jessner peels have resorcinol in them.  Due to the fact that many people are allergic to resorcinol I have chosen to work with a modified jessner product in its place.  Same great results with less irritation!

TCA peels are used for superficial or medium-depth peels and can treat moderate photoaging, actinic keratosis, blotchy hyperpigmentation, melasma, mild to medium rhytides and superficial acne scars.

The purpose of a TCA peel is to improve the appearance and texture of the skin, to ward off aging and to even out skin tone.  The TCA peel is considered a mid level peel addressing the first five layers of the epidermis.  Expect moderate to excessive flaking for up to 10 days after treatment.

* these procedures cannot be done if you are  pregnant or breast feeding.

Add Retinol to a Facial or Peel: $20

Retinol is a superior form of vitamin A which will increase the cellular turnover by lifting the dead skin cells more efficiently then other hydroxy acids.

Adding Retinol to your treatment will accelerate cellular turn over and over all results.  Catapulting you towards your overall skin care goals of fresher, brighter, more even skin tone.
