Facial Peels

Vivite Peels

Vivite is a facial peel only available in a doctor's office by a trained medical professional. This glycolic chemical facial peel is specifically designed with natural botanical antioxidants to visibly improve skin texture, color, and tone without any discomfort. This type of peel is considered a conservative way to improve your skins appearance over time without the downtime and excessive peeling that can occur with traditional peels. Its advanced formulation helps improve overall skin clarity and smoothness and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Contains 70% glycolic compound and has a pH level of 2.75.

TCA Peels

Trichloracetic acid (TCA) peels are considered medium-depth peels. The advantage of TCA peels is that they are suitable for most skin types, including darker-toned skin.

TCA is a skin-resurfacing treatment: it removes dead skin cells, uncovering a "new" layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. As a result, it softens fine lines, minimizes the appearance of dark spots and other skin discolorations, and generally improves the tone and texture of your skin. TCA peels are also very popular for diminishing the appearance of acne scars.

Multiple TCA treatments may be recommended. Treatments are usually spaced 2 to 3 months apart. To increase their effectiveness.
