Medical-grade chemical peels can beautify your skin by peeling away all forms of skin issues. They are formulated by acclaimed skin care experts and can address common skin concerns such as acne, lines and wrinkles, sun damage, dryness, rough skin texture, and more. Our aestheticians will help you choose the chemical peel that’s just right for you!

Our MedSpa offers a range of peels from SkinMedica & ZO Skin Health performed by our licensed aestheticians. Discuss all your skin goals with us during your consultation.


SkinMedica Illuminize Peel® & Vitalize Peel® provide vibrant, radiant-looking skin with minimal downtime. They are superficial peels, also known as “lunchbreak” peels, that fight the signs of aging and leave your skin glowing with little to no peeling.

The Rejuvenize Peel™ is a deep peel and the strongest option from SkinMedica. It is appropriate for moderate to severe skin imperfections. This deep chemical peel smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is good for anyone looking to address acne scars or uneven skin tone. The Rejuvenize Peel is made up of a unique blend of acids including salicylic, resorcinol, lactic, and retinoic. Results are cumulative and even more favorable when combined with a SkinMedica product regimen. You will see a noticeable improvement after just one peel but there will be compelling results after three to six peels.

ZO® Skin Health

ZO® skin peels are an outstanding option for many skin issues, as is the entire ZO skincare line. We are proud to offer ZO® skin care products right in our office.

The ZO® Stimulator Peel

This is the perfect light chemical peel with no downtime! This peel works through its combination of citric, lactic, and salicylic acid. It also has potent active ingredients to exfoliate the skin while stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin. It’s an excellent peel to reduce signs of sun damage and aging.

The ZO® 3 – Step Peel™

Combined with home products that deliver a blend of exfoliating salicylic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and multi-action agents, this medium chemical peel provides antioxidant protection as well as visible anti-irritant benefits to help improve skin health and treat many signs of aging. The chemical solution is applied in our office and then you will be provided with a retinol cream and soothing cream to be used at home.

The ZO® 3 – Step Peel™ is intended for moderate to severe skin imperfections and requires pre-treatment with retinol for 8 weeks. The downtime is 5-7 days of peeling before new skin with a more radiant glow and even skin texture is revealed. The best results are seen with a series of 3 treatments.
