Best when there is some correction that needs to take place – eg fine lines, pigment issues, acne, acne scarring. Peeling typically begins two days after the procedure and lasts 2 to 3 days. These peels are typically performed once per month until the desired correction is achieved.
  • Rejuvenize Peel – deepest of the peels, penetrates into the epidermis to produce significant improvements in acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and texture. Indicated for moderate to severe correction. Moderate peeling that begins 2 days after the procedure and can last up to 5 days. Darker skin types are best treated with vitalize peels on a regular basis.

Glytone Peels

  • Glycolic Acid Peel – Reduces fine lines and wrinkles by increasing skin hydration and improving overall texture and tone.
