CHEMICAL PEELS

A beautiful complexion can be yours!

Chemical Peels for the Face and Body

Facial peels refresh and rejuvenate the skin and get rid of the sallow color. The skin is brighter and smoother with smaller pores. Peels remove brown marks, sun damage, and blackheads. Lighter peels are done in a series for best results with peels done at 2-4 week intervals. Maintenance keeps your new look with chemical peels done every 8-12 weeks. Medium peels can be done every year or so with nice tightening of the skin in addition to the other benefits. Come in and discuss which peel is best for you.

Below is a list of some of the peels we offer:

The Blue Peel

Blue for a Day - Healthier skin for a lifetime

When it comes to your skin, there are many reasons to get the blues - blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage. If you want healthier, smoother looking skin, now there's a way to dramatically improve your complexion, in just a day. It all starts with the Blue Peel.

What is the Obagi Blue Peel?

The Blue Peel is an in-office procedure designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin. Using a low concentration of the chemical tricholoracetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base to slow penetration, the Blue Peel effectively remove the thin surface layers of damaged skin to an appropriate monitored depth. These dead skin cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin's own clarity and tightness to resurface. The procedure is performed by a doctor, who is specialized trained and experienced in using this highly effective peel.

What is unique about the Blue Peel?

Unlike alpha-hydroxy peels, glycolic peels, or other superficial procedures, the Blue Peel allows controlling the depth of the peel and the number of coats applied to tailor the process for your skin's specific needs.

How will my skin look after recovery?

When your skin has completely finished peeling, you will immediately notice how dramatically your complexion is improved. Your skin's appearance will continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking.

Combine the Blue Peel with other procedures

Dr. Narins is trained to combine the Blue Peel with other procedures to effectively achieve even more dramatic results in the same time period. Talk to her about the possible combinations that may be best for your skin.

Applying Makeup After a Blue Peel

To best aid in the recovery process, apply makeup once the skin is completely healed.

The Blue Peel can be Repeated

Several peels may be necessary to achieve the desired result. The peels can be performed every 6 to 8 weeks. In most cases, one to three Blue Peels will dramatically improve many skin problems.

Glycolic Rejuvenation Peels

The Glycolic Rejuvenation Peel can make you look dramatically younger and more beautiful resulting in a temporary turning back of the clock.

Banish blotchy, dry, wrinkled or unevenly pigmented skin, as well as acne and blackheads. This peel will improve the skins appearance, by actually replacing damaged cells, erasing years of sun damage and aging. Studies prove that Glycolic Rejuvenation stimulates the formation of new collagen for a younger, fresher complexion while actually building new skin layers. Your improved appearance is the result of completely new fresh skin.

All skin tones can be treated with this peel.

Safe and Gentle

The Glycolic Rejuvenation is perfect for the busy person who wants quick results. A specially formulated concentrated form of Glycolic Acid, a natural nontoxic fruit product derived from sugarcane, is applied to the skin. After one to two days, a mild non-visible peeling follows ... and soon your skin is beautiful and glowing. You can continue all your routine activities during treatment.

The Glycolic Rejuvenation lightens age spots, restores sun-damaged cells, fades uneven discolorations, smoothes skin texture, improves very superficial wrinkles temporarily and stimulates collagen for a healthier, younger complexion. It can improve the face, neck, chest, back, arms and hands - virtually anywhere skin rejuvenation is desired.

For best results a series of 6 non-visible glycolic acid peels at 1-3 week intervals is advised. To maintain optimal results, have a treatment at 1-3 month intervals.
