Superficial Peel

This is designed to help smooth coarse, dry skin, improve texture of sun-damaged skin and even out skin tone. The recovery is generally rapid and usually involves some minor flaking. A series of treatments is recommended to obtain the desired result over a period of time. Typically, there is no down time and with the appropriate sun protection you can resume regular activities immediately.

Medium Peel

Medium peels contain stronger potency of acids. Medium peels target the epidermis and upper dermis and cause the skin to slough within 5 to 7 days. Immediately after treatment the skin has a red appearance and is occasionally accompanied by swelling. Within a day the skin turns brown in color and after 3-4 days the skin initiates the peeling process.

Deep Peel

Deep peels produce the most dramatic result. Recommended for treating wrinkles, scars, blemishes and in some cases, precancerous skin lesions. A deep peel targets the dermis. In some cases, anesthesia is required during the procedure to reduce the warm to hot stinging sensation. After a deep peel, the skin is red and results in some swelling and blistering. A crust may form and the skin will turn brown just prior to peeling. Many layers of skin will peel over a period of 1 to 2 weeks. An ointment may be given to keep the area moist. Temporarily, the new skin will have the color and sensation of a significant sunburn, which will fade to your normal skin color.
