Chemical Peels

We offer several different peels in our office depending on what type of skin a patient has and the condition of the skin. There are several factors that decide what type of peel to choose, condition of skin, pigment of skin, what results are trying to be achieved, how much down time does the patient have.*

A chemical peel is a treatment performed by a medical professional in which a chemical solution is used to help remove dead skin and improve smoothness and texture.*

True Shine and True Bright Peels

The True Bright peel uses weak acids, combined with potent non-acidic ingredients that do not burn, wound or injure the skin. For this reason, True Bright peel can be used to treat patients with darker complexions. While some patients may feel a mild tingling sensation from the peeling solution, the treatment is virtually painless. How does it work? True Bright peel solution is applied during an in-office visit. The solution is removed by the patient after a required length of time depending on his/her skin type. Patients leave the office with this solution on their face. Patients are responsible for adhering to an easy to follow, but strict, at-home regimen involving the application of several melanage products following removal of the True Bright Peel solution.*

True Shine Peel refreshes stressed skin with a unique synthesis of cell turn-over enhancers and Vitamin A. Take time to relax while the solution is applied to the skin. Your experience is complemented with a take-home product kit precisely tailored to maximize the result of your treatment. Watch as True Shine peel restores your youthful glow with minimal effort.*
