What are Chemical Peels?
At Skin Bar MD, we have developed customized chemical peels that address the most common skin complaints. Each of our chemical peels gently, yet effectively exfoliates the upper levels of the skin, even out skin tone, soften wrinkles, and rejuvenates the skin. Each peel begins with our signature skin cleansing technique. After cleansing the face, or other areas to be treated, a peeling agent is applied. To ensure maximal safety, all peels are neutralized and soothing skin serum is applied to the skin. For best results, we recommend a series of 3-6 chemicals every 4-6 weeks.
In the Clear: A signature acne peel helps to dissolve stubborn whiteheads and blackheads, while also soothing any inflamed acne pustules. Recommend every 2-4 weeks for best results.
Fountain of Youth: An anti-aging peel that helps to prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve uneven skin tone and texture.
Illumination: A customized blend of acids that removes the superficial layers of damaged skin to reveal a bright glow and an even skin tone. This is a perfect peel for those with hyperpigmented acne scars, brown spots, and melasma. It will address all your pigmentary concerns.
