Chemical Peels

We recommend peels to any patient who is looking to kickstart a new skin care regimen, prolong results after a procedure, or simply maintain their healthy skin. Peels exfoliate the top layer of skin cells, revealing a brighter, smoother complexion, and allow your topical products to work more effectively. They also stimulate your own natural collagen production, thereby providing long term benefits.

Now for the FACE —or— for the FACE + DÉCOLLETAGE!
An amazing treatment for stubborn hyperpigmentation, such as melasma, this is our powerhouse peel. It consists of a vitamin A solution combined with a potent arbutin lightening mask. The masque is applied in the office and worn for 6-10 hours. Strict home care is essential and we make it easy by including a month-long skin care kit. Safe for all skin types. Expect some downtime, but the results are worth it!

Like the Melanage UltraPeel, but a mini version. Also perfect for stubborn pigmentation, but may be a better option for those who prefer a little less downtime—there is usually less redness and peeling. The painless peel solution is applied in the office and removed at home after a few hours. A great home kit is included that will last about a month and keep your skin looking bright and smooth. Safe for all skin types. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments, every 2-3 weeks. There is nothing mini about this mini!

We are really excited about this easy, minimal-to-no downtime in-office peel. We decided to offer this treatment after realizing that most of our patients can’t take any time off from their busy schedules, but really want to work on improving their skin quality. A blend of some of my favorite ingredients, the peel consists of TCA (tricholoracetic acid), salicylic acid, azelaic acid, and retinol. You may experience 2-3 days of mild redness and dryness. We love it and we know you will too! Comes with a home skin care kit, and for maintenance, goes great with glowMD Peel in a Bottle and glowMD Wrinkle Rehab for the Neck + Décollatage.

TRETINOIN for wrinkles + skin texture $50
ARBUTASE for pigment $50

Finally a peel designed especially for the sensitive, and often-neglected neck and décolletage! Combat dark spots, rough texture, and wrinkles with this amazing blend of natural exfoliators, including salicylic acid and arbutin. Expect a couple days of mild redness and dryness to your chest and neck, but we send you home with a skin care kit to help soothe, prolong, and enhance the peel’s effects.

Versatile peels and simple favorites among dermatologists, these peels help improve acne, fine lines, discoloration, and sun damage.
