SkinCeuticals Chemical Peels contains 20% alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and is the most common glycolic chemical peel performed. It is safe, nontoxic and may be used over extensive areas of the body such as the face, neck, chest, hands and back. Irritation to the skin is minimal. This peel accelerates the exfoliation of your skin, and you will see improvements in dry, rough, dull-looking skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

How frequently the peel is performed depends on the skincare objectives you have set with our esthetician. There is no downtime.


Chemical peels help increase cellular turnover, which in turn keeps collagen stimulated. By stimulating collagen, the appearance of acne, fine lines and wrinkles will fade. Salicylic is typically used for oily and acne prone skin. It can help to reduce acne prone breakouts and fade the appearance of post-lesion discoloration. Our esthetician will apply the chemical peel in a relaxed, sterile environment. There is virtually no downtime involved. Some peeling or sloughing of the skin may occur.

This procedure is recommended as part of a patient’s monthly skincare regimen.
