Corrective Peels are clinical treatments using concentrated acidic solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, regenerate new cell growth, fibroblast stimulation and collagen production, and dramatically improve the skins' overall appearance. These customized peel treatments are designed to progressively treat issues ranging from moderate to severe acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. After the peel your skin will look instantly smoother, brighter and more hydrated, with minimal downtime.
Your skin must be prepped for two weeks with a peel prep kit prior to having your first corrective peel. A series of six peels is recommended. Pre and post treatment protocols are mandatory, and must be followed to ensure skin safety and to achieve desired results.

Visible exfoliation doesn’t determine the efficacy of treatment. Generally, healthy skin has less visible exfoliation. Exfoliation often takes place at the cellular level and is not always apparent to the naked eye. Conversely, some patients’ skin is so impacted that it can take a few peels to loosen dead cells enough to allow them to shed. Typically, these patients will see little or no peeling initially, and then see sloughing after a few treatments. Using analogies that a patient can relate to can be an incredibly useful tool when explaining to a patient why they may not peel. For example, feeling drowsy after taking pain medication is a side effect, just as peeling is a side effect to a chemical peel; some people may feel drowsy when taking the medication and some may not, just as some may experience exfoliation from a peel and some may not – either way, the efficacy of the medication or peel is not contingent on the side effect.
