Chemical Peels

 

Chemical peels help push your skin to the next level by shedding layers of dead skin cells on a deeper level allowing products to penetrate more deeply and work more effectively. Chemical peels can treat skin issues such as acne, skin texture and scarring, age spots and discoloration and fine lines and wrinkles.

Retief Skin Center aestheticians offer multiple physician-strength chemical peels that are customized for your specific skin type. They only take 30 minutes and can be added to any treatment on any area of the body.

One type of chemical peel we commonly perform is a microlaser peel. This is more than microdermabrasion of a light chemical peel; it is an intra-epidermal laser peel that vaporizes the outer-most layers of the skin. This allows for improved skin texture with minimal downtime.

Our dehyperpigmentation treatment peel is a superficial peel that improves uneven skin tone, deep pigmentation issues, and melasma. The treatment consists of a medical mask and an at-home regiment. There is no pain and typically minimal irritation during the following days. It is great for darker skin tones.

The amount of down-time depends on the type of peel used and its strength. Some of our peels are a one and done treatment--delivering results in as quickly as one week. Some chemical peels we refer to as step up peels--starting at a lower strength and working up to stronger doses. Either way, we will let you know which peel is the best to achieve the results you expect to see.
