The beginning of the year is the perfect time to renew several goals in your life, and we believe your skin should be one of them. A chemical peel is an ideal treatment for patients looking to revitalize their skin by reducing pesky blemishes and the appearance of sun damage.

There are different kinds of chemical peels, and each offers different benefits. A standard chemical peel can include the use of glycolic acid, lactic acid, TCA (trichloroacetic acid), or salicylic acid. These specific chemicals treat the skin on the face and neck for blemishes and sun damage. The goal of a chemical peel is to stimulate collagen and brighten dull skin.

TCA Peel Benefits

TCA peels target sun damage and is the ideal treatment for the patient interested in reducing age spots, or fine lines. The TCA peel is a deeper peel that has a recovery period of approximately seven to 10 days.

  • Reduction in brown spots / age spots
  • Revitalizes sun damaged skin
  • Leaves skin refreshed and healthy looking

SkinCeuticals® MicroPeel Benefits

The MicroPeel reduces common signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. We use the MicroPeel to restore “glow” to the skin.

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Restores “glowing” skin
  • Minimizes skin imprefections

SkinCeuticals® MicroPeel Plus Benefits

The MicroPeel Plus is a go-to peel for acne-prone patients. The popular formula of chemical exfoliation with salicylic acid helps reduce and prevent breakouts that could leave the skin otherwise scarred.

  • Prevents breakouts
  • Reduces current signs of acne
  • Prevents acne scars

MicroPeel with Cryogenic Therapy Benefits

MicroPeels can also be paired with cryogenic therapy, which involves the medical use of low temperatures. You may have also heard of this as cold therapy. We recommend the MicroPeel with cryogenic therapy before a big event as it leaves the skin looking refreshed and revitalized.

  • Leaves skin refreshed and overall healthier looking
  • Prevents blemishes
