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 gentle, 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.
