A “Lunchtime Peel” is a light chemical peel – a non-invasive treatment that removes the upper layers of dead and damaged skin and encourages skin cell regeneration. This type of peel provides gentle treatment for fine lines, acne, chronic dry skin, and uneven pigmentation. It is also a safe and effective way to improve the look of sun-damaged skin, and helpful in reducing mild acne scars and fine lines. In most cases light chemical peels require no recovery time.

Glycolic Acid: extracted from sugar cane and is the most common type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) used in skin care. Glycolic acid helps loosen the “glue” that holds dead skin cells together allowing cellular surface debris to slough off. This peel works from the inside out to smooth rough dry skin, aid in reduction of fine lines, promote firmer younger looking skin & help with uneven pigmentation.
Salicylic Acid: a Beta Hydroxy Acid derived from fruit used for blemish & acne control. This is an effective treatment for clogged pores (blackheads, whiteheads), infected pores (papules, pustules) dead skin buildup, large pores, ingrown hairs and oily skin. This treatment also stimulates new healthy skin cell production.
Remember a light peel usually needs to be repeated for results to last several months.
