Chemical peels have been used for over 100 years to create an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells. Each year thousands of these treatments are performed in the United States, including Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. A chemical peel is applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells. It tightens the skin, reduces wrinkling, and restores a more youthful appearance.

About Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new ones. They can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven pigmentation
- Shallow acne scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
A chemical peel is not a substitute for a face lift or a brow lift. It cannot correct excessively wrinkled or sagging skin. But, in many cases a chemical peel is performed in conjunction with these procedures. Ask your skin care consultant about a VISIA® Complexion Analysis, which enables us to design rejuvenation and skin care programs for your specific complexion.

The Biomedic MicroPeel® is a complete and technically advanced system for the skin that can improve years of environmental exposure and skin conditions, such as acne. MicroPeel is a 3-step process that removes a micro-thin top layer of skin. Using either physical or enzymatic exfoliation, alpha hydroxy acid solution, and cryogenic therapy the skin is exfoliated and stimulated. These peels are safe and effective procedures that require little or no recovery. With each additional procedure, you will notice improvements of skin clarity, tone and texture. For maximum results we recommend a series of 6 treatments in 4-6 week intervals.
The Biomedic MicroPeel Plus outperforms other superficial peels by freeing the skin of all dead cells and stimulating cellular turnover. An application of salicylic acid in the form of microcrystals targets the exact area on the skin that needs improvement resulting in a softening of fine lines and discoloration, fading dark spots, and diminishing enlarged pores and acne. This procedure is considered to be a revolutionary skincare advancement with minimal recovery and can be performed every 4-6 weeks. The amount of MicroPeel Plus treatments you receive will be determined upon evaluation.
