Microdermabrasion and light chemical peels gently exfoliate the dead outer skin (epidermis) layer, producing fresh young skin cells and collagen resulting in softer and smoother skin. The procedure takes 30 to 60 minutes and there is no downtime. Treatments are recommended every 2 to 4 weeks. A series of 4 to 8 treatments are recommended. Optimal results are seen after 8 to 12 weeks of treatment.
Light peels performed under medical supervision are safer, more concentrated, resulting in significantly deeper penetration of the fruit acid with far superior results than those found in conventional day spas and salons.

Your skin is gently exfoliated and encouraged to maximize its own natural collagen production. 4 to 8 gentle treatments over the course of 8 to 12 weeks produce maximum results and restore your confidence.
