Exfoliating treatments otherwise known as “peels” improve acne, diminish fine lines & wrinkles, and reduce hyper-pigmentation.

Peels can vary in type and intensity (from lighter to deeper peels), but essentially they all remove dead skin cells on the skin’s outer surface, speeding up the cellular turnover rate, revealing smoother more radiant skin. Exfoliating the skin also improves the penetration and absorption of active ingredients in your skin care products. Consult with your Licensed Skin Care Professional to determine which treatment is appropriate for your skin type and condition. Each exfoliating treatment can be performed alone, or with a facial, which includes customized masque preparations, extractions & massage. In most cases, best results can be achieved with a series of 6 to 12 treatments, scheduled 7 to 14 days apart, followed by monthly maintenance treatments.  Combine with a rejuvenating treatment for a non-surgical face-lift…Ah!

Retinol

This uniquely active formula contains significant concentrations of Vitamin A, combined with the resurfacing value of Lactic Acid.  This combination allows for deeper exfoliation of surface dead skin cells, as well as a powerful decongestive mechanism for the accumulation of lipids and oils surrounding the glands and hair follicles.  Vitamin A at this condensed level is known for its ability to stimulate and increase the production of healthy skin cells, thus visibly reducing the signs of aging and unwanted pigmentation.  The visual change of the skin can be significant with this peel.
