Chemical Peels: The solution to smoother and even skin tone

Chemical peels are a great solution to smoother and even skin tone and texture.  While many of you may think of the  “Samantha experience” from Sex and the City when you hear chemical peel,  have no fear! There are actually a range of different chemical peel strengths and solutions to give you the desired outcomes without the scary downtime you may think of.

First, lets go over the benefits of chemical peels. Peels are designed to provide controlled exfoliation of damaged skin with significant visible results after just one treatment. Chemicals peels are also an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, uneven skin pigmentation and pore size. It enhances skin glow and radiance by inducing production of new collagen and stimulating new healthy skin cell growth

Is there downtime?  The beauty of chemical peels is that  our Aestheticians Donne and Julie can completely customize the treatment to your wants and needs.  If you want the results after one treatment and don’t mind up to 5 days of peeling, then they can provide you with a deep peel that will get the job done.  If your schedule doesn’t allow for minimal downtime, there is also the option of a chemical peel series, where a lesser strength chemical peel, like the SkinMedica Vitalize peel,  is applied and you are seen back for additional peels every 4 weeks.  This gives you only a couple of days of mild flaking.  One of our experienced Aestheticians would be happy to lay out a customized treatment plan and determine the number of recommended peels for your desired skincare goals.

If you’r seeking a solution for skin correction, a maintenance plan, wellness, or simply pleasure WDC has a treatment for everyone!
