Micropeels are a popular cosmetic treatment for patients looking for an easy, affordable, effective way to refresh and rejuvenate their skin. Alongside daily skincare regimens, this non-invasive treatment can quickly and successfully treat a wide range of skin conditions. If you are interested in achieving, glowing, healthier and youthful looking skin, a micropeel may be the perfect solution for you!

What is a Micropeel?

The micropeel is the lightest of the chemical peels. Sometimes called a superficial peel, a light chemical peel, or a lunchtime peel, this treatment uses a mildly acidic solution to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin. These effective glycolic-based formulas stimulate the regrowth of healthy dermal cells to improve your skins texture, color, and overall appearance.

Our patients enjoy all the benefits of micropeels, including

  • Softer skin
  • More even skin tone
  • Exfoliated and brightened skin
  • Smoother, more even texture
  • Smaller pore size
  • A slight lightening of sun spots and age spots
  • Softened fine lines and wrinkles
  • A fresh, revitalized, and more youthful appearance

The Skinceuticals micropeel is a unique three-step treatment with exceptional results!

  • Exfoliate: Dead skin is gently removed through a painless technique called dermaplaning which is similar to shaving.
  • Peel: The chemical solution is applied to your skin then carefully and thoroughly rinsed. The peel solution removes the outermost layer of damaged skin, revealing a smooth, fresh and healthier layer of skin beneath the surface.
  • Co2 cryogenics: The SkinCeuticals treatment ends with a unique soothing CO2 cryogenic treatment which increases collagen production and new cell growth.

We are excited to offer our patients the latest treatments from the SkinCeuticals line. Their best-selling, advanced skincare treatments combine the best of science and nature to restore and revitalize your skin. Their custom formulas are highly effective at treating a wide range of complexion problems, such as dry skin, wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and more!
