We have a philosophy at Vanilla Sugar Face & Body that chemical peels are not to cause damage to the living dermis layer of the skin. Our peels are gently, yet highly effective in achieving results such as lightening hyperpigmentation caused by acne, hormones (melasma) and UV exposure (sun spots, large freckles).
Every peel is fully customized to treat your specific skin type. For example, there is a big difference in how even dry and oily skin types respond to peels even when suffering from the same type of pigment disorder.
We highly recommend that when starting a peel series to get on a home care routine that will work well with your peels to achieve the results you are looking for.
After analyzing your skin condition, your esthetician will customize your peel to suite your needs. The following Peels below is a guideline. Strength and the amount of layering we do will affect the time of the peel is left on and the results we are striving to achieve for you.

Dermaplaning with Glycolic or Lactic Acid Peel
$95 / 30 minutes
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). At Vanilla Sugar, we offer this procedure with a light glycolic or lactic peel for an amazing result. This treatment is recommended for brides to be, a special occasion or if you are having professional photographs done. When the hair is removed, your makeup will be much more smoother on the skin and will have a more airbrushed finish. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment so there is no fear that the hair will grow back dark or thicker. Dermaplaning alone can be performed for $50 and is a 20 minute treatment.
