customized peel treatment
Discover the science of chemical peels.
We can choose a peel from the many peeling agents we have, but it is important to consider your life style when selecting a right peel. Consider the potential downtime with your treatment, as the degree of peeling varies and depends on the depth of the peel, which can range from superficial to deep.
Obagi Blue Radiance Peel
Obagi Blue Radiance Peel is gentle yet effective without downtime and with little to no flaking. Using a blend of 20% Salicylic, 2% Glycolic, and 2% Phytic Acid the Radiance Peel exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresher, tighter, and renewed. The peel also has soothing agents such as licorice root and willow bark to calm the skin during the peel to create a comfortable experience. This peel is a great option before a big event, as it will quickly uncover the healthy glow of brighter, tighter, healthier skin with no downtime or peeling. The Blue Radiance peel also compliments the Obagi Nu-derm system and can be used to boost your results.
Peels have been utilized for many years and are certainly not new technology to the cosmetic industry. However, experience gained throughout the years has led to different combinations of agents yielding improved and advanced results.
We are able to customize our peels for each patient to achieve a subtler, gradual or more dramatic transformation. The goal is to properly prepare and exfoliate the skin while assisting the healing and regeneration process.

The potential downtime with your treatment, and the degree of peeling varies depending on the depth of the peel, which can range from superficial to deep.
