This light peel removes the outer skin layer (the epidermis), giving your face a more radiant appearance and softer texture. We usually recommend that you receive a light chemical peel at least once a month for ideal results.

This type of facial treatment is designed for patients who have deeper damage to their skin, such as prominent wrinkles and darker pigmentation concerns.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep chemical peel, and it does require the lengthiest recovery time. Patients who undergo a deep chemical peel typically have dark age spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, or deep scars. To enhance your comfort during this type of peel, your aesthetician may anesthetize your skin prior to the treatment.
