A chemical peel is a treatment in which an acid solution is used to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. Typically administered as a facial peel, a chemical peel enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation, acne, or if you simply want to rejuvenate your skin.
We offer a variety of peel options depending upon your skin issues & concerns (brown spots, sun-damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven complexion, texture, blemishes, acne…).

TCA Peel 30% And 35% (Trichloracetic Acid):
TCA is a skin-resurfacing treatment: it removes dead skin cells, uncovering a “new” layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. As a result, it softens fine lines, minimizes superficial “age” spots and other skin discolorations, and generally improves the tone and texture of your skin. TCA peels are also very popular for diminishing the appearance of acne scars as well. There is approximately 7 days downtime and it is recommended once or twice per year.
