Chemical Peels

Facials are designed to cleanse the skin, refine it and to slough away all dead cells from the surface to cultivate new and fresh tissue. Chemical peels are quite different as they remove the topmost layer of skin cells entirely using specified chemical solutions that will strip this damaged layer away from the face for good. Our clients at Calabasas Med Spa love chemical peels because they offer a deep resurfacing and cleansing result.

For our clients that have severe pigmentation, lots of acne and injury related scarring, age spotting, and other skin imperfections, chemical peels will reduce their appearance while offering them an entirely new canvas of skin to work from in their skin care efforts. These chemical peels give you the second chance you’ve always wanted.

Glycolic Acid Peel

This chemical peel is one of the most natural of all facial peels since it utilizes some basic acid-sugar compounds that are at high concentrations strong enough to remove the topmost skin, but gentle enough to heal beautifully and refresh the skin.

Jessner’s Peel

This peel is a medium chemical peel which is still superficial but resurfaces the skin. A Jessner peel combines three different types of acids (lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol) to peel away the skin, remove any bacteria, soften fine lines and surface wrinkles as well as pigmentation and any visible sun damage.

Salicylic Acid Peel

These peels reduce inflammation caused in skin suffering from free radicals, debris and improper skin care regimens. They can target dark spots, mild lines, deep cleansing of pores, and melasma (the mask of pregnancy). Since salicylic acid seeks out oil in hair follicles, it is a very good peel for acne sufferers.


We can customize this highly sought after facial peel by focusing on acne concerns, pigmentation, any premature aging symptoms such as loose and roughly textured skin. Completely rejuvenate the skin with a Vi peel’s special blend of acids to reveal a smooth, beautiful face.

After Your Chemical Peel

Depending on the depth of peel you’re looking for and the condition of your skin, some recovery time may be required, anywhere from a couple of days to a full week or more. During your consultation at Calabasas Med Spa, you and your skin care professional will review all of your custom skin care options, and you will decide whether or not a chemical peel is right for you.

After every peel, there may be some minor swelling in the skin and some redness including mild to moderate peeling of the skin. After care instructions will help minimize your recovery. Your skin will require high levels of moisturizing home care, and our team will make sure you have the best products during this phase. We recommend an ample amount of medical grade sunscreen to protect the skin from any damage when it’s freshly exposed.
