Chemical peels have been used for thousands of years to help reveal brighter, healthier skin. Chemical peels harness your body’s natural restorative abilities. All chemical peels work by the same principle: causing the outer layers of skin to slough off triggers a rejuvenative response in the middle and deeper layers of the skin. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a newer and healthier layer of skin cells. Different combinations of alpha and beta hydroxy acids can create different responses – from treating fine lines, to stopping acne breakouts to removing freckles and brown age spots.
Restōr Medical Spa is proud to offer a range of chemical peels, from “lunch-time” peels with no down-time to deeper peels for more profound results, as part of our results-oriented approach to improving fine lines and wrinkles, acne, skin texture, and pigment. Chemical peels are a gradual process and are most commonly done in a series of treatments.
Superficial peels are the lightest of all chemical peels. The superficial peel will smooth and soften your skin, brighten your complexion, minimize pore size and reduce discoloration. Superficial peels can be preformed every two weeks.
Medium Strength chemical peels, are highly effective in promoting skin smoothness and vitality, improve color, texture, skin tone, and fine wrinkles. Medium peels may be repeated every three to six months for optimal results and do involve a few days of redness and peeling.
Deep peels typically involve weeks of downtime and are administered with anesthetic agents. We do not perform deep peels at Restōr Medical Spa.
Here at Restōr we offer an array of superficial peels that can be added into any facial and tailored to your skin type and personal goals. A superficial peel has little or no downtime – with minimal redness and possible light flaking, and will leave you skin glowing and refreshed.

Medium Depth Peels
A Glycolic peel is composed of alpha-hydroxy acids that produces a light to medium depth peel perfect for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, treating dry areas, aiding in the control of acne, improving sun damaged skin, and smoothing rough dry skin.
Glycolic peels can range from light (20%) to medium depth (40%), depending on your goals and skin condition. Light peels reveal brighter skin and can be done every few weeks and is a great add-on to facials.
Salycilic acid attacks the bacteria that causes acne and are perfect for the treatment of oily skin. Our salicylic peels can be done at a variety of strengths to treat your specific conditions and concerns.
Mini Melanage Peel
The Mini Melanage peel is used to treat uneven skin tone, deep pigment (such as freckles, birthmarks, or age spots) or melasma in all skin types and colors. The treatment begins in the office and is supplemented by comprehensive home care products that amplify and extend the peel benefits.
Jessner’s and Modified Jessner’s Peel
The Jessner’s Peel is a light to medium chemical peel that can repair more extensive skin damage than most other peels. This is the most aggressive peel that we offer at Restōr, and it provides the most noticeable results! The depth of a Jessner’s Peel can be tailored by changing the number of “passes” – or the number of layers of the peel solution that are applied to the face. We recommend a series of 3-6 peels over several months for optimal effect.
Jessner’s Peel is a mix of salicylic acid and resorcinol, lactic acid. This peel works best for lightening skin affected hyperpigmentation, brown spots,acne scars and sun damage. The Jessner’s peel is safe for all skin types. The Jessner’s peel is very beneficial for patients with acne, oily, or thicker skin, because it tends to decrease oil production and open clogged sebaceous follicles. Additionally, since the skin will be smoother and healthier after your peel, any other products or lasers that you use will penetrate more deeply and produce better results after a series of Jessner’s peels.
