Chemical peels are designed to rapidly exfoliate the epidermis and stimulate essential collagen and elastin. They are made in a variety of strengths and depths. Chemical peels are specific to treat a variety of skin types. If you want to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, or simply rejuvenate your complexion, we provide several levels of chemical exfoliation, including:
Obagi Radiance Peel: A light option known as a “lunchtime peel” that is designed for most skin types.
Glycolic Peels: Available in two strengths, 35 and 70 percent, and is helpful in clearing acne and acne scarring.
Lactic Peel: Lactic peels are for those with a more delicate skin type. They are a gentle way to exfoliate the epidermis without overstimulating sensitive skin.
Advanced Corrective Peel: A medically exclusive peel that is ideal for people with all skin types concerned with mild to moderate signs of aging, stubborn discoloration, and uneven tone and texture.
Jessner’s Peel: This is a medium depth peel and usually requires a few days to exfoliate. It is meant to treat slightly deeper lines, scarring, hyper-pigmentation and smooth skin.
We also offer the OBAGI Blue Peel®, an advanced chemical peel that uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and rough skin. The TCA penetrates the skin causing a sloughing of dead skin to peel off. Lay the foundation for more optimal results with prepping the skin 4 to 6 weeks prior to the peel with the OBAGI NU-DERM System. The TCA peel is an excellent option for African-American and dark-skinned patients.
Explore the Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is a mechanical exfoliation of dead surface cells. It reveals healthier cells and products are able to better penetrate the skin. In the process of dermaplaning, velous hair (peach fuzz) is removed. The hair will gradually reappear as before and will not cause hair to grow in excess. Patients that are dermaplaned regularly claim their skin has more glow and that makeup goes on much smoother. Dermaplane can be done monthly. It can also be combined with additional treatments such as a chemical peel. There is no downtime if dermaplaning is done as a stand-alone treatment.

Rejuvenate Your Skin with Microneedling
Also known as, Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling remodels the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the epidermis. This increases the formation of new tissue activating the body’s wound healing response. This procedure can greatly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and other scarring and stretch marks.

Individuals who get tired of applying their makeup day-in and day-out can take advantage of the permanent cosmetic services offered by our skin care professional. Also known as cosmetic tattooing, permanent makeup can both enhance facial features and eliminate the daily hassle and time spent putting makeup on. It is also a safe cosmetic alternative for those who have allergies to traditional makeup or have trouble applying cosmetics. The procedure involves using a manual needle tattoo technique to implant colored ink into the skin for a subtle or dramatic enhancement to facial appearance. The entire process takes approximately one hour. Permanent makeup can be applied to fill in the eyebrows, add definition around the eyes, color the lips, or camouflage scars, and usually requires one or two touch ups for optimal results.
