Get Your Peel On And Start Glowing
As the skin ages, both chronologically and with sun damage and photoaging, the outermost layer of our skin (composed of dead skin cells) adheres for a longer period of time and becomes a thicker layer. This imparts dryness, toughness, and a yellow dull coloration to the skin. A facial chemical peel is a great option for skin rejuvenation.

Facial Chemical Peel Chelmsford, Massachusetts
Facial peels work by loosening the “glue” that binds the dead skin cells together at this outermost layer of your skin. The best chemical peel will achieve a more uniform exfoliation than what occurs naturally. This exfoliation of dead skin cells exposes the healthier skin cells below, increases the rate of new skin cell turnover, and stimulates production of collagen and elastin.
Types of Facial Peels
There are many different types of peels with different depths of exfoliation. Our Medical Esthetician can help you determine which of the following peels may be best for you to achieve your skin care goals.
NEO•PEEL is the latest dimension in superficial peels. It combines glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture, as well as skin roughness and surface irregularities. Following a consultation with our Master Esthetician, a series of 4 to 6 peels approximately every 2 weeks is recommended. Improvement in skin tone and texture may be visible following one peel but more pronounced results require 4 to 6 peels.
NEO•PEEL is suitable for individuals undergoing a first-time chemical peel, or for individuals looking for a gentle superficial peel. It’s also an excellent option for teens trying to improve their acne, and there is little to no downtime. Some redness and other discomfort may occur immediately following the peel. Minimal flaking and/or peeling may occur several days after receiving the peel. Sunscreen is a must! Limit sun exposure and use an SPF 30 or higher sunblock for 2 weeks following the peel.
This procedure helps improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin, and it can diminish the appearance of skin discoloration. It helps reduce the appearance of pore size, softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, purifies acneic skin conditions by reducing inflammation, post-inflammatory marks, bacteria and excessive cell build-up, and stimulates fibroblast activity, increasing collagen and elastin production for firmer skin.
