We currently offer these CHEMICAL PEELS:

Rejuvenize Peel (TM) Appropriate for moderate to sever skin imperfections as determine by your physician. Used to smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. Noticeable improvement after just one peel, compelling results after three to six peels.

Foot Peels A two step process which will have your feet looking so beautiful you will want to show them off year-round! After a refreshing and exfoliating foot cleanse, the feet are dried, then treated with our pre-peel accelerator which provides nourishing ingredients that soften and hydrate the skin’s surface. Followed by one to two layers of peel solution which improves the appearance and texture of the feet with a combination of exfoliating, smoothing and brightening ingredients. Feet will slough for approximately one week.

Obagi Blue Peels (R) or Radiance Peel In-office facial chemical peel procedure that uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special Obagi blue base to monitor and slow penetration.

TCA 6%, 8% or 10% (stronger TCA peels are available by Dr. Dehghan.) TCA applied to the skin will cause the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off. When the old skin peels off, it will expose a new layer of undamaged skin with has a smoother texture and more even color.

Sal—E PEEL Anti-aging Epionce Peel developed to penetrate and clean out pores to encourage cell turnover. Anti bacterial and antiinflammatory properties improve skin clarity and texture. May also be used as a de-greasing treatment, or to enhance the effects of a mid-depth peel procedure such as TCA (>30%).

Mal—E PEEL Anti-aging Epionce Peel developed to enhance skin hydration and brightening especially when battling problem bacteria. This peel encourages cell turnover with minimal exfoliation.

PCA—Ultra Peel I Especially formulated to treat dehydrated, maturing skin, Ultra Peel® I is also appropriate for many skin types, conditions andsensitivities. It will help treat smoker’s skin, pigment disorders, sun damaged skin and acne. This treatment is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation. Moderate to aggressive exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers applied. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and ultra-soft skin.

You can add Derma Planing with all Chemical Peels.

Chemical peels improve the overall appearance of your facial skin by removing the damaged outer layer, and as a result, facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation are virtually eliminated. A variety of peeling agents and formulations can be used, but the most consistent and commonly used agents are alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol.

skin peel results photoAlphahydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin for people who can’t spare the time to recover from a phenol or TCA peel. AHA peels may be used to treat fine wrinkling, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. Various concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best result. An alphahydroxy acid, such as glycolic acid, can also be mixed with a facial wash or cream in lesser concentrations as part of a daily skin-care regimen to improve the skin’s texture.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in concentrations of 20% or 35% and is most commonly used for medium to deep peeling. Fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA. The results of TCA peel are usually less dramatic and not as long-lasting as those of a phenol peel, but the recovery time is significantly shorter.

Phenol is the strongest of the chemical solutions and produces the deepest peel. It is used mainly to treat deep facial wrinkles, areas of blotchy or damaged skin caused by sun exposure, or pre-cancerous growths. Since phenol sometimes lightens the treated areas, your skin pigmentation may be a determining factor as to whether or not this is an appropriate treatment for you.
