Chemical Peels Questions.

The kids are back in school, the nights are cool and the excitment of fall is definitely in the air. Unfortuately when the weather changes, so does our skin. With the onslaught of cooler temps and nights spent outdoors, it becomes more important to think about getting our skin back into shape. Fall is the perfect time to begin a series of Peels. Why? There are a number of reasons but here are a few.

1) Summer sun recks havok and damages our skin. Hyperpigmentation is manageable through proper treatments (exfoliation) and products.


2) Cooler temperatures allow the skin to be less reactive following a peel. The hot summer sun can aggravate newly exfoliated skin and if left unprotected can cause further damage through UV exposure.


3) Kids are back in school and we are back into a routine. Make kicking your skin care back into your routine and you'll feel refreshed too!


4)Prevention is the best anti-aging tool.  It's never to early to get your skin into its best possible condition.


5) Peels uncover the epidermal layers causing the skin to rebuild itself. Resulting in a reduction of fine lines, uneven tone and texture, acne and acne scars.


We offer mild to medium depth chemical peels that treat and are suitable for any skin type. Come in for a free consultation with one of our experienced Estheticians!
