VI Peel
VI Peel represents the next generation of chemical exfloiants unlike any others you might have experinced. The peels reverse the effects of sun damage, enviromental factors and time, enhancing the skins natural beauty. VI peel has been one of the most common medical peels and our specialty at this clinic.

Glycolic Peel
Glycolic peels are all natural (derived from sugar cane) and are in the lightest category of chemical peels. Known as a “lunchtime procedure,” due to their short duration and rapid recovery time, glycolic peels can be used to remove superficial wrinkles and dry patches of skin, as well as to treat sun damage and acne scars .There is no downtime associated with a glycolic peel. Some dryness, flakiness, and redness should be expected, as the top layer of skin falls away to reveal the smoother, healthier skin beneath. Salicylic acid or beta peels are often prescribed for patients who have oily skin or are acne prone. The Beta peel is a very elegant superficial peel. Unlike other superficial peels, the Beta Peel generally has little or no downtime. The safety profile is excellent and these peels can be done on most skin types. It is a very brief procedure done usually in about 15 minutes and there is no pain, only an occasional mild stinging in some individuals.

Salicylic Peel
This peel is excellent for those with oily skin and acne. It has little to no downtime and will help keep the skin smooth and blemish free.

PCA Peel®
This is a safe and highly effective tx that has no downtime. This light to medium peel formula is proven to effectively treat acne, control oil, smooth fine lines and also help to inhibit the pigment production providing a more even skin tone. Pca peel is available in the following three formulas:

PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone (non-resorcinol)
This formula is for those who want to even their skin tone. It will correct melasma, sun damage and all pigment discolorations of any kind. It will inhibit active acne and correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (brown-spotting) from acne. PCA Peel® w/HQ can also be used to treat the neck and chest for sun damage.

PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone and Resorcinol
This peel is the most potent version of PCA Peel®. It is a deeper peel that will provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker, resilient skin types. It is for extreme sun damaged skin and can also be used to treat the hands and arms. It is also excellent for those with active/cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath).

Ultra Peel™ I and II
Ultra Peel™ treatments are appropriate for all skin types, conditions and sensitivities. These treatments are especially ideal for sensitive skin, as they produce a minimal stinging sensation. Ultra Peel™ treatments will effectively treat acne, pigment disorders, aging skin, smoker’s skin and sun damaged skin.

Sensi Peel ® Exfoliating Treatment
Sensi Peel exfoliating treatment was formulated primarily for extremely sensitive skin types. The solution contains a blend of L-lactic acid and trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Plant-derived progesterone leaves the skin feeling plump and hydrated. The Sensi ® Peel exfoliating treatment is formulated with L-ascorbic acid for strengthening and brightening while L-arbutin and Kojic acid help treat hyper-pigmentation and sun damage. The kojic acid, as well as azelaic acid provide anti-acne and antibacterial properties to the solution. The Sensi Peel ® exfoliating treatment is excellent for calming rosacea, as redness and inflammation subside substantially after treatment.

Pumpkin Peel Beta-C Mask Treatment
The Pumpkin Peel has simultaneous actions: it exfoliates while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. It is an excellent treatment for smokers as it stimulates circulation, promotes healing and provides vitamin nutrition. As with all other PCA chemical peels there is no downtime. In fact, skin will be glowing and extremely healthy looking following the treatment.

Oxygenating Facial Trio
The Oxygenating Facial is an antioxidant therapy to ameliorate free radical damage. Oxidative damage is one of the more significant contributions to the aging process. The Oxy Facial Trio helps rejuvenate sluggish, tired skin due to toxins, pollutants, allergens, improper diet, solar damage, smoking and aging. Acneic conditions benefit greatly. This treatment is recommended between peel treatments when peeling is not indicated.
